What are teacup Poodles anyway?  

The term teacup is the unofficial name associated with extremely small dogs. These dogs can actually fit in a teacup! Sometimes people call them toy dogs or micro dogs. In any case, they’re really talking about the teeny tiny size of a teacup Poodle for sale. Sometimes teacup poodles are intentionally bred and other times it’s accidental unintentional breeding and in some cases, teacup Poodles are simply the runts of the litter. The teacup puppy is not a breed. The term simply references and describes the teeny size of the dog. There’s no more to it – that’s it!   

Just how small or large will teacups grow?

If a dog is considered a teacup, this means their size will typically range from 3 to 4 pounds, at its full grown weight. The teacup puppy measures at roughly 17 inches or less. If the dog is considered micro, they will usually weigh between 2 to 3 pounds at its full grown weight and age. There is no universal or mandatory size since teacups are not an official breed and are not regulated. Other times, teacup puppies are the result of breeding two very small dogs of a certain breed.  

Any health concerns regarding teacup Poodles?

If the teacup Poodle for sale has been bred from a healthy line, like the ones at Furry Babies, and from a line that specifically breeds dogs to be small, then they can most assuredly be equally as healthy as any other size dog. They can lead healthy lives, although they have some common concerns.  Most revolve around their extra small organs and subsequent birth complications. Their tiny bladders will make potty training almost nonexistent, but at least they’ll leave drops and not puddles!
