Pomeranian teacup: what you need to know

Pomeranians are great. He is a fantastic dog with a great personality and is perfect for cuddling up on the couch with you, playing fetch in the yard, and expressing extreme interest in anything you say in a baby voice.

They really are a perfect breed. So how can this furry puppy be improved? Well some think the only thing left to do is make the dog smaller. If you are on that boat, you will be very excited to know about the Pomeranian cup of tea! They are all the great qualities of the regular Pom, put together in a “fun-sized” package.

If you are thinking of buying one of these furry pooches, already own one, or just enjoy reading about them, this article will provide you with a lot of important information and help answer any questions you may have. It’s important to be informed about any “purchase decisions” (or adoption decisions in this case!), And bringing home a living creature to care for is no different at all.

Now, it should be noted that there is no official recognition, by the AKC or anyone else, of a Pomeranian cup of tea. Therefore, there is no “official” definition of exactly what size a teacup dog should be. Assuming normal weight, these dogs typically range from 7 pounds on the small side to 15 pounds or more on the large end. A cup of Pomeranian tea generally weighs 5 pounds or less when fully grown. Some extra small teacups can weigh up to 3 pounds!

All that size means is that they were successfully bred down to very small dogs. Physically they are not different, they are just smaller. These are not the “dwarfs” of the dog world, and there is nothing in their body that is different. The proportions are exactly the same; they just don’t get that big because of genetics.

If you want to have one of these dogs for yourself, you can start looking anywhere you can look for a full-size dog: in the newspaper or Craigslist, directly from breeders, or at a pet store. Ask the usual questions about the dog and treat the “interview” process as you would when buying any other dog.

However, there is one factor to consider. Since the puppies are quite small, it is very difficult to determine exactly how big the dog will be altogether. Since there is no official definition of a cup of tea, many breeders will simply use this as a “marketing term” to sell the dog and draw attention to their advertisements. Even if the dog will grow to a whopping 16 pounds, they can technically still use the term. This means that you have to do some work to take care of your back.

Generally speaking, a Pomeranian teacup will grow to be about the same size as its parents, so ask to meet the puppy’s biological mother and father. Look at them and make sure they are both really “cups of tea.” This is also a great opportunity to check the health of the parents and see if there are any health problems in the blood lines (such as low blood sugar and serious joint problems).

Health problems are not a big concern with Pomeranian teacups, but they may be at higher risk for some problems. The biggest problem is sudden death due to organ failure, but this usually occurs at a relatively young age and is genetic. If you ask to meet the parents and they both seem healthy, there is probably nothing to worry about.

If the bitch is an incredibly small female (4 to 5 pounds or less), breeding may not be an option, which means spaying should be done as soon as possible. Giving birth could easily kill these little dogs as they are not as strong as normal Poms.

There is a lot to consider when adopting any dog, and the size factor only serves to make things more confusing. Hopefully, this article has given you a place to start and has answered some of the most basic questions you may have.
