Is there such a thing?
What is a Teacup Pomeranian?
I see them advertised all over the internet I am sure you have to. Sadly in today’s world people will say anything to make the sale or adoption as some put it. But as us Pomeranian lovers we know this breed is a not a toy breed not a Teacup or even a Minature.
The average weight of a full grown purebred is 4 to 7 pounds or 1.9 to 3.5 Kilograms. The height of a pom full grown can range from 8″ to 11″. Any smaller or larger then this full grown would probably have some kind of a mix in it.
When searching for a pure Pom I would definitely stay away from anybody advertising ” Teacup Pomeranian’s”. Reputable breeders would not advertise their cute little balls of fluff as this.
Make sure you can view the parents and see the registration papers of both parents. Even if they are not selling them as registered AKC or CKC. They should be able to provide you with their bloodlines. If they are unable to do so you may want to look around first before making any decisions.
Always ask questions and make sure you get proper answers. A good breeder would be more then happy to answer your questions and also will ask you questions as well. A fantastic breeder will have done some vital training with the pups in the early stages of development.
Some questions to ask are…
Have they done Early Neurological Stimulation?
Were the rules of 7 done from 3 weeks of age to 7 weeks of age?
Where were the pups born?
Where have they been living till now?
Are they litter, paper or pee mat trained?
Have they done anything with the puppies?
What kind of food have they been fed and why that food?
There is no such thing as a Teacup Pomeranian. If you find a puppy you really want and are unsure if it is a purebred, make sure to ask the breeder to see the parents papers and bloodlines. If the breeder can not supply them then walk away.
But if you do not mind a crossbred dog and can find out what other breed is in it to make it this small size. For example Pom Chi mix and you are satisfied with the breeder and the health, Then go for it.
