A real teacup dog is developed by natural downsizing through many generations, it is not a runt of a litter. If you are looking for a cheap teacup puppy, you may be setting yourself up to get scammed.
A cheap teacup puppy can grow up to 3 times the size you originally wanted, or it can be the most expensive puppy you will ever buy! Whilst many teacup puppy sellers don’t size guarantee their puppies, that rings the bell, real tea-cup puppies’ adult size is predictable, an estimation should be very close to reality, because their adult size reflects their parents, grandparents, and so on. Many teacup dogs on the market are counterfeit, true teacup dog breeders/sellers know their value, their puppies’ estimate adult size & health condition, and don’t sell them cheap”.
For anyone to truly understand why Teacups are so expensive; it is the intense support and care these tiny babies require around the clock so they grow happily in the first couple months of life, they are raised by highly skilled puppy nurses with around the clock care and nurturing, prices reflect the time devoted for their care, the size, the quality and rarity of the breed. It is very hard to find a genuine teacup dog. A reputable teacup puppy breeder will know each of their puppies as individuals and we will ask you many questions to help you choose the right one, we only select our puppies from reputable breeders that is registered by their states’ canine council. These breeders breed for quality and to maintain excellent teacup lines. They are not in the market just to make money.
Normally, the tinnier the puppy, the more it will cost. This is because finding a reputable teacup puppy breeder is very difficult. It is very time-consuming breeding these tiny babies. It is also very expensive to buy breeding quality dogs which carry the teacup gene. Sometimes these dogs need to be imported from other countries as there are very few true teacup dog lines. This is a very long and expensive process.
