About Our Teacup Poodles for Sale
Teacup Poodles for Sale | Poodle for Sale in NC | Teacup Poodles for Sale
The Teacup Poodle is one of the smallest dogs out there. These tiny little pups are loyal and loving and can fit just about anywhere! Because of their tiny size, they can adapt to a number of different spaces, so it doesn’t matter if your apartment is small or your house is big. Also intelligent, the Teacup Poodle will keep you on your toes and carries many of the same characteristics as their standard-sized parents.
Although there are no official breed standards, the general rule of thumb is that a Teacup Poodle is 9 inches in height and weighs less than 6 pounds. We expect our Teacup Poodles for sale to be within this size range when full-grown.
The Poodle breed is very elegant looking, no matter the size, and they always stand poised. Their eyes are also small, dark, and are always alert, and they have a long muzzle with floppy furry ears.
Their coat is curled and thick, and they do not shed any fur. This means they are hypoallergenic dogs and are perfect for those with allergies.
The Teacup Poodles’ coat comes in a variety of colors such as black, silver, blue, gray, red, white, apricot, brown, and beige. Unlike other Poodle mix dogs who may have a mixture of different fur colors, this dog only comes in solid colors. This way, you can determine whether you are being sold a purebred Poodle or not.
The temperament of the Teacup Poodle is very similar to that of the Standard Poodle. They are extremely loving and make great companions for everyone, including individuals, families, and the elderly. Because of their size, too, they fit into many different environments and will do well in apartments and in city living and also in large homes in the country or in open-spaced environments.
Their exercise needs are not great, although they do get bored very easily and do not like to be left alone. If they are left alone for too long they will begin to suffer from separation anxiety and exhibit destructive behaviors. A socialization class from a young age can help this, but you also shouldn’t purchase a Teacup Poodle if you are not going to be able to be with them for a large portion of the day
The life expectancy of a Teacup dog is relatively long. These dogs can be expected to live anywhere between 12 to 14 years
Known Health Issues
As with any dog, a Teacup Poodle is prone to some health problems. Some of these problems are similar to the issues that may be carried by their standard-sized ancestors due to their genetic similarities. These include:
- Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) — this is an eye disorder that eventually causes blindness from the loss of photoreceptors at the back of the eye.
- Dysplasia — this is normally seen in large dogs but can affect different joints in the body.
Also, because of their selective breeding and small size, they are also prone to some other health issues. You should always check with the breeder you are buying from to see whether the dogs show any signs of these problems.
The three most common are hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), heart defects, and patella luxation. Patella luxation is a common condition in smaller dogs and is caused when the patella is not properly aligned. This can cause lameness in the leg or an abnormal gait, sort of like a skip or a hop.
