You’ve seen them and craved them and now it’s really possibility for you. Before you purchase teacup puppies, we want to make sure that you’re well informed. They come in small packages with a specific set of rules to care for them.

So what ARE teacup pups anyway?

From time to time, you’ll hear the term “teacup” used in conjunction with other breeds. For instance, you’ll read “teacup Yorkie” or “teacup Chihuahua,” but in actuality, there’s no such thing as either. There are no actual breeds that use the word teacup as part of their official breed name. If you see this, don’t fall for it. Yorkies and Chihuahuas are naturally tiny, so the term teacup doesn’t truly apply.

How to caring for your teacup puppy.

Feed your teacup puppies a healthy diet. It should be one that’s rich in fiber. Purchase canned or dry foods that contain ingredients like eggs, chicken, fruits, veggies, and omega 3 fatty acids. Of important note, be sure to buy food that contains Karo syrup. Teacup pups are prone to low blood sugar and this ingredient can help counteract that.

Make sure your teacup puppies get sufficient rest. They play a lot and tend to feel very tired after activity. Provide a comfortable bed for your teacup puppy. After playing with your puppy, place her in the bed and leave her alone to rest for a few hours! She needs it. Teacup puppies actually need about 14 hours of sleep each day!

Lastly, always provide fresh water. Teacup pups are like any other dog, except in size! They always need fresh water.

 

Tiny teacup puppies are a joy to have, just like any other sized dog. Come into Petland today to get yours!
