Teacups Puppies for Sale in Florida
The term “teacup” is used to describe a dog that weighs less than 5 pounds when fully grown and comes from the idea that they should be small enough to fit in a teacup. Teacup-size dogs are generally the result of breeding the smallest dogs for several generations until the tiny size is consistent within the litters. Teacup dogs first began to see a rise in popularity when celebrities like Paris Hilton showed off dogs that could fit in their handbags and be carried around.
Teacup Pros and Cons
It’s hard to beat a teacup-size dog when it comes to cuteness, especially if it’s a version of a well-known breed, such as the pug or poodle. Their small size also means they don’t need much room in the house and don’t cost a lot to feed. However, they can have more health concerns than larger, standard breeds and are fragile enough that they need to be monitored around children and other dogs who may be too rough. They also aren’t recommended for the elderly because they can get underfoot and be hard to spot, creating a fall hazard.
