If you have never seen a teacup poodle full grown then you have most certainly been missing out. This tiny breed of dogs was developed specifically to be the smallest breed of dog in the world. However, this isn’t where its greatest shortcoming comes into play. These puppies need a lot of love and attention to become an obedient pet. It is not uncommon for these dogs to get into mischief at home or even in public.
Usually, teacup poodle puppies reach their final height between seven to ten inches at full maturity. As a general rule, the Teacup Poodle fully grown stands at approximately nine inches in height and they usually weigh up to six pounds, while a Toy breed typically reaches around ten inches at full maturity. Their eyes are dark, almost indigo and are typically alert.
They are adorable and cuddly little dogs, but these teacup poodle puppies are highly intelligent as well. They are very easy trainable and are very devoted dogs that adore human companionship. They have a very high activity level and require lots of exercise daily. They will eat almost anything, including kibble and regular dog food. In order for your dog to be healthy, it should receive ample exercise each day.
Like many tiny dog breeds, the teacup poodle is an excellent candidate for the AKC Miniature Dog competitions. Teacup poodles do exceptionally well in these competitions, and the breed often takes first place in the very competitive competition. Because of their small size, they tend to do better in the Miniature Dog Club than the standard sized poodle. They are also very sensitive dogs that have a high prey drive. Because of their small size and adorable appearance, teacup poodles are very popular among those who own mini dachshunds or other small dog breeds.
The Teacup Poodle is so adorable that they are often considered to be crossbreeds with the Beagle, the Shih Tzu, the Bulldog, and the Cocker Spaniel. This is partly because of their small size, which is half of the size of the average sized poodle. Teacup poodles are also known to be quieter than other pups, although they are still not soft spoken. They can be loving, affectionate and friendly towards their owners, but due to their diminutive size they sometimes seem shy and not as outgoing as larger pups.
Because of their small body size and cute appearance, it was not easy for the teacup poodle to breed naturally. Since they are extremely sensitive dogs, breeding them as show dogs meant certain concessions needed to be made to their temperament. The American Kennel Club (AKC) and the American Society for the prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASCA) consider all miniature breeds to be showable; however, they have smaller standards for Teacup Poodles, so they had to meet the breed standard in order to be eligible for sale. Because of the small poodle size and tiny skeletal structure, many teacup poodle owners choose not to breed their pups. Some even choose not to show their pups.
Health Problems: Like most dog breeds, teacup poodle color requires that you groom your dog on a regular basis. Since the legs are so small, brushing and combing is required on a regular basis to keep their coat in great condition. Because of their small size, teacup poodles are prone to hip dysplasia, a common problem in this size category that makes your dog feel like it is fighting another dog in its corner. This is common in teacup poodle color, and can cause severe discomfort to your pet. It is important to consult with your veterinarian if you notice swelling, redness, or pain around the hip joint.
Teacup poodles make fantastic pets, but they require a bit of extra care and maintenance to thrive. They are small in size, so they are very sensitive to the smallest things. If you are interested in owning one, make sure you are prepared to provide the love and care it needs to be a healthy and happy pup. Full grown poodles are wonderful dogs, but teacup poodle breeders should be careful to avoid breeding teacup poodles full grown, as it can be a very complicated situation for both the dog and the owner.
