They are the smallest dogs from a litter of the small dog breed. Because they are so small, they can be unhealthy, and they can have some health problems. But they are still cute, they have big hearts in their tiny puppy bodies, and they can love you as any other dog can. You definitely should do your research before you decide if you want to get a teacup dog.
We are going to show you some of the most popular teacup dog breeds out there.
1. Teacup Chihuahua
Chihuahua’s are already very small, but there are also teacup Chihuahua’s. Both are super cute. They originate from Mexico, and in the ancient times, they were pets of Toltecs, which is awesome. But there’s also a thing that isn’t that awesome, and that’s the fact that they were considered food by the Aztecs.
2. Teacup Pomsky
Someone came up with an idea to mix a Pomeranian and a Siberian Huskey, and they got a crossbreed Pomsky. They are very cute, and they are very popular in the last few years. They look just like a Husky, but they are very tiny.
3. Teacup Yorkie
Another small breed that can be even smaller. Yorkshire Terrier originates from the 19th century in Yorkshire, England. Originally, they were used for catching rats, but later they’ve become pets.
4. Teacup Poodle
This breed is a loyal breed. It was bred in Germany, but it became the most popular in France with the French royalty. Sun King Louis XVI really loved teacup poodles.
5. Teacup Pomeranian
Another breed that was popularized by the royalty, but this time the British. Queen Victoria of Britain had a very small Pomeranian, and at that time its size wasn’t a standard Pomeranian size. But now its size became a standard for this dog breed.
6. Teacup Maltese
Maltese dogs are super cute and normally they weigh under seven pounds, but teacup Maltese are even lighter than that. They weigh between two and four pounds.
7. Teacup Shih Tzu
When Shih Tzu is around nine pounds or less it is called Imperial Shih Tzu, or teacup. It sounds awesome to have an Imperial puppy, but you should do your research before you decide on this breed because these adorable puppies can have some health issues.
8. Teacup Maltipoo
Teacup Maltipoo is the mix of a Maltese and a Poodle, and they’ve become very popular in the past few years because they are cute and adorable.
9. Teacup Beagle
We can say that this breed is another royal breed. Because it was popularized by Elizabeth I, and they were called ‘Pocket Beagles’. Till this day you can see these cute Beagles on many paintings from the period when Elizabeth I lived. But at that time, they’ve lost their popularity because they weren’t fast because of their short legs, and they’ve couldn’t catch foxes.
10. Teacup Pug
Pugs are generally a popular breed of dogs. And teacup Pugs are now a thing also. They are just very small pugs, that are so friendly to people and have a great temperament. You just can’t resist their adorably wrinkled face.
Apart from these cute breeds that made onto our list, there are also some other small breeds that have teacup dogs, like Fox Terrier, Boston Terrier, Japanese Chin, Brussels Griffon, the Morkie, and others.
We can’t resist the cuteness of these dogs, so we are are going to share some more photos of them with you.
Hope you enjoy.
