When a Yorkie reaches 8 weeks, it will be able to walk with good coordination on a flat, level surface. If they walk on uneven ground or new surfaces, they are not as coordinated. A sign of poor health is when the puppy is uncoordinated or unaware of what is going on around. The puppy may be having vision of hearing problems.
Yorkie puppies with pot bellies or hugely distended stomachs have worms. Although this condition can be treated, it is just a sign that the breeder has not really taken care of them properly. With this, they will have greater risk for having other health problems because of the stress in their developing systems due to the presence of parasites.
Healthy puppies are usually calm and not overly excited or nervous or scared. Although some Yorkie puppies are timid and shy, they should not be afraid or anxious of human contact and interaction.
Curiosity marks a healthy puppy and will be interested in what is going on around them. It is not suitable for first time yorkie owners to get puppies that hide or become aggressive when in human contact because training them might become a challenge to you. Puppy breeders usually help new owners understand puppy temperaments and the growth stage of the puppies.
