TEACUP PUPPY FAQ

What exactly is a Teacup puppy? It is a term we use to describe the size of a dog that is smaller than average. Most of our puppies range from 1.5 pounds to 3 pounds (except the Bulldogs) There isnt an AKC category at this time for Teacup dogs so none of our dogs can possibly have AKC papers.

Are Teacup puppies unhealthy? This is a very common misconception, but the answer is ‘No’. They are, however, equivalent to newborn babies and require a lot more care and attention than your average sized puppy. Because of their tiny size and delicate nature, their immune system can be compromised. So you need to be a little more careful on what they come in contact with and how they are handled. As they grow older their immune system gets stronger and then they are just as healthy as any dog.

In fact, the dog with the shortest life span happens to be a Great Dane on the opposite side of the size spectrum.

What is the average lifespan of teacup puppy? It’s 8 to 14 years, like most dog breeds, except the majestic Great Dane who only lives for about 5 -7 years.

Knowing if a Teacup puppy is right for your family? Well, if you have got kids under 10. No. If you have got grandkids under 10, you have got to give it some consideration because your puppy cannot be unsupervised around the young children.

We are going to send your puppy to you with a crate and a blanket and food bowls and the basics that it needs. I know that you are probably going to want prettier ones or better ones or your own color of patterns and style, but just wait before you introduce all those new things. Let the puppy stay with his bowls and food and trays and blankets, at least for 10 days. It won’t really ruin your decor that much but the puppy will have a better transition. You could buy a little playpen or a cradle, your ‘fur’ baby is protected and has a safe place where you can quickly put him down. But aside from the playpen, he doesn’t really need anything but bonding time.

Tinies are not suitable for everyone’s lifestyle. Most people work and they are not going to be home for 8 hours and they want to put the puppy in a crate, then these tiny puppies are not going to do well. So, I would suggest to consider a regular toy size at about 5 pounds and that puppy will do better with your schedule. You really need to be able to dedicate the time to raise this puppy. Tinies will need a one-on-one, Someone watching it, playing with it, babysitting it. It is like having a child; it is a lovely feeling and you really do need to be available.

If you want to know what kind of breed is right for you? Really there are all kinds of information online about the different breeds. You can call me and ask me about my personal opinion on different breeds. People ask me about ‘X’ dog like, “So is Billy like a lovable puppy?” Well, while the puppies are here with us, they’re all super amazing and lovable and cuddly. They are like one-month-old babies, if you were looking at a human, so all the babies are lovable and cute and cuddly. They just want to sleep and cuddle and eat, and maybe look at you a little bit and have a play, and then they are sleeping again. So, it is really impossible to predict what their character will be like after they leave here. That is in part going to be about what they are genetically made of – just like how your personality is different than mine – it is going to be the same with the puppy but we don’t see that until the puppy is at least 6 months old. Once he is in your home you will shape his character with your rules, your lifestyle and how you train your dog.

So if you ask me what his personality is like, well… he is too little for me to give you an answer. Puppies personalities change just as humans do.

Your puppy will be delivered in its own crate, it is going to feel very comfortable for them. You can transfer that into a playpen or cradle but there should be a confined area for your puppy to feel safe in like a little den. That’s the same for big and small dogs. 

You don’t want pushy pups; you want to be the boss. So when your puppy starts to test to you, which even at one pound it will, don’t give in to them. If they are begging for that treat, that’s the time to say no. Basic training like teaching your puppy how to mind his manners. Don’t give the puppy attention when it is running to the door barking, ignore the puppy at that time. If your puppy makes a mistake and goes out of his pee-pee pads, ignore the puppy again. Just clean it up and be on your way. Your puppy is trained but he is just trying to get some attention from you. Bring him out, have friends over, go in the car. Don’t isolate the puppy when you bring him home. 

Repeat the pee-pee pad training. Make sure you always have pee-pee pads available and they know where they are and they are accessible so that there are no accidents, reinforcing what we have already done here, but all these things can go to waste if you just get way to excited and forget that your dog is a canine!

Why you can’t come over?

Sometimes people ask me if they can come and pick up the puppy themselves. Well, NO. #1 we have 3 locations all private homes not ‘pet stores’ We live here. I don’t want people showing up at my house, coming whenever they want. When my mom was doing this years ago she had someone just walk into her house and say, “Oh, we’re here to see the puppies!” We stopped that by not letting anyone come to the house anymore. #2 we don’t let anyone come and visit the puppies when they are little (not even friends and family) because of a simple bacteria that you could have stepped in on your way in the house could infect one of our puppies. If it infects one of our puppies, it will effect one of our mothers, then it will affect the rest of the litter. Maybe effects the puppies playing next to them. It can be deadly and/or very expensive for us.

So we don’t see the upside of having people come by. Usually, people who want to come by just want to look at the puppies and I don’t blame them. They’re gorgeous, they are a lot of fun to play with. Maybe they want to show their kids, do a little show and tell.
