Temperature - Your puppy will most likely be more sensitive to temperature changes. The worst thing that can happen are quick changes from hot to cold. Take care
when giving baths, use warm water and have a soft warm towel immediately ready to wrap them in. Put clothes on your Yorkie

and not a nestling bed. Add an extra blanket for cushioning and warmth.
Checkups - Do make sure to bring your puppy for regular checkups....Any issues that are caught early have a better prognosis.
