Do teacup yorkies shed?

Yes, teacup yorkies shed, but not much. Despite their long locks, these small dogs don’t shed a lot. Additionally, the hair they do shed generally falls back into their coats, so it’s hardly noticeable.

For these reasons, teacup yorkies are considered hypoallergenic, making them great pets for people with allergies.

However, grooming is still a must. Otherwise, their hair might become tangled and matted. As a general rule, you should brush their coat every day if they have the long “classic show cut” or every other day if they have a short puppy or teddy bear cut.

Teacup yorkies also need regular trims to prevent the hair from poking their eyes.
