Now, the word “teacup” means different things to different people. Many people use that word to advertise puppies in a way that describes their breed, like Teacup Yorkie or Teacup Chihuahua. However, it’s important to know that there are no actual breeds that use the word teacup in their official breed name. The world of small breed puppies can be a tricky one and it can be hard for potential owners to decide what is real and safe to bring home. So, if you’re in the market for teacup puppies, read along with our blog to make sure you’re in the know!
Here at Petland, we consider ourselves in the education business. Education in what? All things pet-related, silly! We believe that it’s our job that our customers are well-versed in the needs and requirements of every living pet that goes home. That being said, there are pets that have quite a few more requirements than others, and that’s where teacup puppies come in. There are so many more things you have to be aware of when bringing home a small puppy than say, a big, fat Golden Retriever puppy. This is why we are very stringent with the type of families that can handle these little, tiny balls of fluff!
There are many things we go over in the store before a tiny puppy goes home, so I’ll just hit the highlights here. Making sure your puppy eats is the number one most important thing you can do for the first six months of your puppy’s life. I’m talking about every couple of hours making sure the puppy is alternately eating and getting rest from activity, this can be overwhelming for people not used to this type of routine. Also, you must monitor the puppy closely every time it’s out of it’s crate. There are so many more things that can injure a very tiny puppy. And lastly, teacup puppies must be medicated and vaccinated appropriately and on a strict veterinarian schedule for their health.
While many people who are searching for teacups are very happy when they find the pup of their dreams, it’s important to consider if you want to shoulder the responsibility. Puppies, in many ways, are like infants, with teacup puppies being the smallest among them. So, think about everything carefully before picking out a teacup puppy for sale!
