These cute and tiny dogs that are known as Yorkshire Terriers hail from the United Kingdom and it is believed that these dogs came to life in the 1860s. Because of their looks, these canines were mostly seen in various dog shows that were organized in the U.K. Now, in the 21st century, the Yorkshire Terriers have become so popular that they are placed at #09 position by the AKC in the list for most popular dog breeds from all around the world. The demand for this breed is tremendously high in most parts of the world.

In India as well, these dogs are slowly becoming more and more popular and hence their demand is also increasing day by day. But there are a lot of things that an Indian dog admirer or pet parent should consider before deciding to raise this miniature breed. Yorkshire Terriers do not have a very good tolerance to heat and high temperatures, thus they are not that suitable to live in those parts of India where the temperature can go really high during the summer season. Also, these dogs may not be very easily available in several parts of India and they can be fairly pricey to raise and maintain.

Given below is the average price list of the Yorkshire Terriers puppies which are available in India in various variations.

  • Yorkshire Terrier Puppy price (Basic): ₹35,000 to ₹50,000
  • Yorkshire Terrier Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹50,000 to ₹60,000
  • Yorkshire Terrier Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹60,000 to ₹80,000

Now if you want to look for this canine at a breeder's place, then it is very important that you get it only from a trusted source i.e., a good breeder only. A trustworthy breeder is the one who will not only help you in deciding which breeds are right for you and which ones are not but will also give you important tips and information about the breed you will eventually decide to raise as a pet. At a reputable breeder’s place, both the quality and the health of the canine are ensured and the peace of mind that you will get after that is an add-on bonus. Hence, it is extremely crucial you get the breed of your dreams only from a reliable breeder.

Factors Affecting the Yorkshire Terrier dog Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Yorkshire Terrier price in India. These factors are as follows:


There are three different price categories for a Yorkshire Terrier dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Yorkshire Terrier puppy can cost anywhere around ₹35,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

As Yorkies are available in a lot of different types, the overall Yorkshire Terriers price in India also varies based on these types. Popular Yorkie types are Parti, Teacup, Designer et cetera and this can easily influence the price of these dogs in India. Also, these adorable dogs can be found in a lot of different colors (Black & Tan, Black & Gold, Blue & Tan etc.) as well and depending on the rarity of the color of their coat, the average price of Yorkshire Terrier is affected.

Age & Gender

Usually, the male dogs and puppies are sold at a bit of a higher price as compared to their female counterparts, hence, this is also true that gender of a dog can also influence its overall price in a region. Also, young dogs and puppies normally cost way more to bring home as compared to older or mature canines.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Yorkshire Terrier is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

Now, as Yorkies have a subpar availability in most parts of India, the price of Yorkshire Terrier dog is also quite high when we compare it to some other breeds who are readily available in the country.

Also, location again influences the original price of a dog in an area. If you are buying a dog or a puppy from a breeder that is near to your place, then its price should be a bit lower as compared to that canine that someone may get from a breeder that is at a far-away location (most probably a different state) and this is because additional charges like shipping and traveling expenses add on to the original price of the dog.

Reputed Breeder

A dog bought from a reputed and popular breeder may also cost more as compared to the one that is available at a not-so-well-known breeder. Because of their reach and popularity, reputed breeders tend to charge more for a canine and people also don't usually mind that because getting a dog from a trusted and reputed breeder generally means you are getting a fully fit and healthy canine.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
