Five Irresistible Tea-Cup Dog Breeds For Canine Lovers

These teeny-weeny dogs with angelic faces are irresistibly cute, and many canine lovers are fond of them.

Tea-cup dogs are the pocket-sized version of numerous dog breeds we adore. These dog varieties are bred from tiny breeds of dogs belonging to the Toy category. These tiny dogs are bred to be easier and smaller substitutes for full-sized dogs. Tea-cup pups gained popularity among pop singers, and movie stars and common people have also fallen in love with them too. Here are some tea-cup dog breeds that can be your perfect mini companion.

Yorkie tea-cup

These tea-cup pups are born from Yorkie terrier parents. They are commonly classified as a toy breed, but by nature, they are true terriers — fearless, independent, brave, and stubborn, and are fond of snuggling and plenty of face-licking. They weigh 7 pounds and are 7 inches in height.

Micro Chihuahua

Chihuahuas are one of the smallest dog breeds in the world, but the tea-cup variety is so tiny that it can fit in your palms. While standard-sized Chihuahuas weigh nearly six pounds, the tea-cup variety weighs nearly four pounds. But do not let their tiny sizes fool you, these pups have loud voices.

Mini Maltese

These dogs are below 7 inches in height and weigh not more than 5 pounds. Mini Maltese dogs are a tea-cup version of the graceful Maltese breed. Those elegant big eyes will surely lure you to bring one home.

Brussels Griffon teacup

Brussels Griffons have an irresistibly cute face, whether it is their guilty face, sweet face, or grumpy face. The tea-cup variety is compact, tiny, and portable, but the Griff possesses several human-like traits in its body weighing between 8 to 10 pounds and height of 8 to 10 inches, and they love staying glued to their human parent.

Russian Toy

Most miniature or tea-cup dogs are bred down to size. However, this breed is born tiny. The Russian toy is very close to a Chihuahua, but they hail from a different part of the world. They can grow 11 inches in height and mostly weigh 6 pounds only. Several breeders selectively breed these pups to create even smaller varieties of pocket-sized dogs.

Everything seems more adorable in smaller sizes, and these fur babies make no exception! It is easy for people to instantly fall in love with dogs that never outgrow their tiny puppy-sized bodies.
