There is no such breed or variety as a Teacup Poodle.
Some unscrupulous breeders use these cutesy, made-up phrases as marketing terms for smaller Toy Poodles.
There is only one Toy Poodle variety of the breed. As long as a Poodle doesn't exceed 28 cm / 11 inches at the shoulder, he is called a Toy Poodle. Some individual dogs are simply smaller or larger than others.
The so-called teacup poodles who weigh less than 2kgs are at great risk for health problems. They need constant protection because they are so fragile. They tend to have difficulty regulating their blood sugar and are vulnerable to hypoglycemic comas; their internal organs are tiny and often not strong enough to survive a normal lifetime.
Responsible Toy Poodle breeders never try to produce these high-risk creatures. If a tiny one pops up in one of their litters, they seek out the best home that can keep it alive, but they try hard not to produce them in the first place.
Irresponsible breeders, on the other hand, deliberately breed these teacup toys because they know they can sell them for absurdly high prices to unsuspecting owners who don't know how fragile they are, or to owners who want one because it's "adorable." Don't be one of these people. If you reward irresponsible breeders by giving them your money, you're just encouraging them to keep producing tiny, fragile, short-lived dogs.
