How much should Yorkie puppies actually sleep?

My puppy is 10 week old and he sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. I just want to know how often is it for a Yorkie puppy to sleep? How much sleep is normal?

Ten weeks old is still a baby, mind you.

They sleep a lot when they are babies, its normal for them. Puppies tend to give all of their energy in one sitting, so they wear out quicker and easier than when they get older. Eventually, when they build up stamina, they'll be awake for longer.

    As long as you have taken your puppy to the vet and it is on its series of puppy vacinations, then you shouldn't worry. Young puppies around 8 weeks typically sleep quite a bit, eat, play and sleep again. Of course if you are concerned, please take your puppy to a vet right away to put your mind at ease.

    I have a Shorkie (Half Shih Tzu, half Yorkie). When I got him he was 8 weeks old and he slept all the time too. It worried me so I called the breeder. She told me that it's totally normal for puppies to sleep a lot in the first few months of their lives, just like babies. My pup is a year old now and he's on pretty much the same sleeping schedule as I am.

    I have a Yorkie who now is nearly a year old. When we first got her all she did was sleep. it's usual for them to sleep as they grow older they grow out of it
