  • I don't have a picture due to them getting lost in my move, but I use to have a teacup long haired chihuaha full grown, she was less than 1 pound and could lay down in my hand, and have about an inch between her and my fingertip.

  • There is NO such thing as a teacup or toy yorkie. Those dogs are typically runt dogs of one poorly bred litter and runt dogs of another poorly bred litter thrown together. They are then called teacups in hopes of getting more money from people who don't do their research and don't care as long as they have the newest, coolest, fashion in dog breeding (which are the teacup or toy anything).

    Typically dogs from this type of breeding also come with a host of problems, fleas, ticks, lice, poor eyesight, bad hips, parvo, kennel cough, respiratory issues, liver problems...you name it, they will probably have it. It's best to do your research, find a GOOD breeder and don't fall into the teacup trap.

  • My baby came from two normal sized dogs. She has dwarfism.

    Oh, and do your research hon... being a runt can't cause fleas, ticks, lice, parvo, or kennel cough. Those are things any dog or puppy can catch.

  • Yes, being a runt can cause those things. Runts are poorly bred, sickly dogs who can get parvo, lice, fleas and ticks easier then healthy dogs from proper breeding practices. Do your research hon!
