Teacup information & Poodles according to size.

My teacups are under 4 pounds and under 8 inches full grown. My smallest full grown is 2 lbs to 2 1/2 lbs. And 6 inches at 15 years old. Breeders that tell you teacups are a mistake in the litter are wrong. I breed just for health and size . If teacups are bred right they are just as health as larger poodles but in a small package. I guarantee my babies are free from genetic problems. I fly my babies all over the country, but you are always welcomed to fly in and get your baby. Shipping is $300.00 which also includes at least 2 shots, Current vaccinations, Veterinarian examination, Health certificate, Health guarantee, Pedigree, Travel crate all my babies are pre-spoiled!!! They are also paper trained.

Poodle has been known throughout Western Europe for at least 400 years, its origin is controversial. Despite the claims of several other countries, France has now been officially recognized as its country of origin. The name 'Poodle' AKC Breed Standard for poodles states that:  A Toy Poodle must be 10" or under in height (weights vary) with a level back line, tightly curled hair in a variety of colors, a bright intelligent sparkle in it's eyes which should be set at ear level, an even/scissor bite.   The classification by weight (Toy, Tiny Toy, Teacup, and Pocket) is how we breeders determine the adult size of a Toy Poodle and how to price them. 

Teacup Poodles.

  • Teacup is a name given by breeders to describe an extra small dog, presently there is no universal standard of measure.  Each breeder has their own definitions of what size a 'teacup' should be.  Most breeders agree that a teacup should be 4 pounds and under, but poodles are measured by height and not by weight, however weight should also be considered a factor.  Furthermore, most breeders agree that a teacup should be under 8 inches in height.  The reason for this is because, even though a poodle should be built square, some poodles are built tall and thin and therefore might only weigh 4 pounds, but be 10 or 11 inches tall.  Some are built short and husky and therefore might only be 8 inches tall, but could weigh as much as 7 or 8 pounds.  We believe a
    'true' teacup to be 2 to 4 pounds full grown and under 8 inches tall.

  • Puppies may or may not grow a lot between 8 weeks and 12 weeks of age.  This is why we choose to keep the puppies until 12 weeks of age, so we can better guarantee an approximate size, health, quality, and know more about what the puppy will look like as an adult.  Puppies do continue to grow after 12 weeks, however to insure a puppy will be a 'true' teacup, the puppy should not be over 2 pounds or taller than 6 inches at 12 weeks.  Twelve weeks is not to late for human bonding, because the bonding starts at 2 weeks of age when the puppies first open their eyes. Inbreeding, such as father/daughter, mother/son, brother/sister, and half brother/sister should be avoided for health-temperament reasons. The more teacups in the third to fourth generations and further back makes for a nice looking and genuine in size teacup. We guarantee the health for five days and hereditary problems until one year of age.  Congenital defects can be inherited and/or environmental (over vaccinating, topical treatments, medications, nutrition, etc.) Teacup bred puppies will stop growing at 8 to 12 months of age.  However, a puppy classified as a teacup with larger sizes in it's background can grow until 18 months of age at which time the puppy may not be within acceptable limits to be classified as a teacup. The average life span of a teacup is 12 to 15 years of age, but sometimes longer.
