|Emma-Jem this was not an accidental litter it is breeders intentionally breeding either standard sized dogs and calling them "tea cup" or "imperial" or breeding smaller than standard sized dogs to produce smaller sized puppies.
People who do this do it only for the money,often breed multiple breeds or mixes with no health testing and often not the best of treatment or care. Many are puppy mills. It is not necessarily that the dogs are puppies when bred,simply that they are so tiny they look like puppies. I have 2 pure-bred Akitas. Both are Speutered. The person I got my female from simply bred a family pet to keep a puppy for themselves but the mother was health tested and came from good lines,so was the father. My male came from a responsible breeder who health and genetically tests all of her breeding stock,does not breed females before age 2,retires them at 5,all potential homes are screened carefully including a home visit,signing a contract is required,a health guarantee for refund or replacement is provided for the life of the dog along with a requirement that if you can not keep the puppy it is to be returned to be properly rehomed for the life of that puppy. That is how most REPUTABLE BREEDERS do business. We had a relationship with our breeder for more than 6 months before we got our puppy,and it took the better part of the first 4 months to be approved for one of her puppies.
