|Gus- of course there are the bybs that specifically sell undersized dogs as well, but I find that the majority of people claiming the dog will be under x weight do it because it's sellable, not because that's the way the parents have been..... usually they are also selling the puppies prematurely (before 8 or even before 6 weeks) so that the puppies appear to be 'properly' tiny...
Of course, they often grow up to be way bigger than even standard cousins..
I once overheard at a vet's office a lady talking about how her Pekingese was only supposed to be less than 10 pounds, how she had paid her "breeder" extra for the "teacup" Peke.. I saw her Peke.. it was, full grown, way bigger than even standard Pekes...
Then again, she did say she thought it would stay small - course she did, she probably picked it up when it was maybe 6 weeks old.
