Be aware that "teacup" sized dogs are prone to more health problems due to their size.

If you do get one, do not get it from a breeder or pet store. Any breeder who sells "teacup" dogs of any breed is bad. They are either ignorant of the health problems that come with the size, or they sell them just to make money. Something a good breeder never does.

You may be able to find one through a rescue group or at a shelter.

I hate to break it to ya, but so-called "Teacups" are not part of the Poodle breed or recognized by the AKC. If you want a Toy Poodle pup though, than go to Mrs. Darlene Crosby while she has two available pups. (www.darcontoypoodles.com). Toys tend to grow to be five to six pounds when fully grown. These dogs can still sit in your lap and be couch potatoes, run around outside, can travel easily, and just want to be wherever you are.

Teacup dogs are not just a pint-sized puppy... They are prematurely born, undernourished puppies. In children, what happens to teacups would be called "failure to thrive." It is not a good thing.

Looking to buy a "tiny teacup" puppy is like getting pregnant and hoping that your child will be born with as many painful genetic defects possible.

You can find a "tiny teacup" puppy from numerous breeders on the internet or at pet stores, but be prepared to spend $2000+ on the purchase price, and then another $5000-10000+ on vet bills for the rest of the dog's short, miserable life.

Or, you could find a nice normal sized toy Poodle (many are under 6lbs) from a shelter for under $200, or from a great breeder for around $1000. Your choice.
