I'm not sure what your asking but they typically live for 12-15 years. Although, I've heard of them making it to 17 years. They have plenty of engergy but start to slow down a little bit around 8 years. During the later years the dog will probably like to lounge around.


my yorkie lived until he was 18!!! The last few years though he definitely wasn't himself. Very sad.


I had a friend whos yorkie lived until she was 25!!!! I also had a yorkie that lived until 5years old she got hit by a car. My new yorkie is now 6 years old and she doesnt leave my side.


Please be very careful of yorkies in heat. They have a very delicate glucose level. If they sweat profusely or become too hot their glucose level can drop and cause them to go into a hypoglycemic state. I lost my last yorkie due to heat! Please, please be careful! I now have a new one and he isn't allowed outside without being watched and for very short periods in the heat!


My Yorkshire terrior has gone into heat for the first time. How long will this last and how long do have to mind her after this? Also how often will she go into heat? Thank you.


My sweetheart lived 14 years 10 months. He died of heart failure. He was very active until the last couple of years. Even then he would have short moments of his past puppy status. The biggest difference was his energetic times were shorter, when he was a puppy his energy knew no limits.
