3 Popular FAQ’s About Your Teacup Pupppy

The journey to be a dog owner doesn’t start at your adoption day, and it certainly does not end. Having a live animal as a family member is no different than raising a kid. As fresh parents, you will always have questions about your dog’s health and whether or not you’re taking the right precautions with its eating habits, vet checks, and potty training. 

We take our job seriously at Puppy Heaven- The Home of Teacup Puppies, so we took the liberty to answer three of the most popular faqs about teacup puppies.

Here goes…

How Long Do Teacup Dogs Live?

First thing first —smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger breeds. There are many misconceptions about teacup puppies and their health problems, which could eventually retract you from your adoption decision. These so-called health problems that are more popular in smaller breeds are solely because of the dog’s size. The teacup puppies’ size requires you, as the owner, to pay extra attention to feeding times, make sure it’s not traveling too much in the early stages, and don’t leave it unattended for too long. You would do the same to your newborn, wouldn’t you?

We’re not comparing between the two; however, this is your new baby, and some babies need extra attention than others. You’ll do wonderfully once you know all the information before adopting a teacup puppy.

So, after we established that their tiny sizes require extra attention in the early stages, teacup dogs live on an average of 12 to 16 years. That’s a lot of time for cuddling and fluffing!

How Big Do Teacup Puppies Get?  

A teacup puppy is not a breed but rather a several breeds that qualify (size and weight) according to the American Kennel Club (AKC), which considers a teacup dog to be anywhere between 2 to 5 pounds and approximately 17 inches when fully grown. However, recent researches showed that some teacup breeds could end up weighing 7-8 and, in rare scenarios, even 9 pounds when fully grown.

Generally speaking, anything above 6 pounds and under 15 pounds will consider as a Toy size dog.

With that in mind, it is essential to remember that these are live animals, and some will get different nutrients than others, different lifestyles, and different homes. All of these variables can also affect the growth of your dog. 

What Do Teacup Puppies Eat? 

Teacup puppies require constant watch over their eating habits. You definitely can’t leave a teacup puppy alone for too long, and if you have a busy schedule, you should consider if a teacup puppy is right for you.

Teacup puppies need to eat at least three times a day. Depending on the puppy’s size, some might require food every 4-5 hours, preferably at a set daily schedule. Without a proper feeding schedule, your teacup puppy can quickly get hypoglycemia, so it’s not a bad idea to continually have dry food in your puppy’s bowl.

In general, your teacup puppy should have food that is rich in fiber and fatty (keep it healthy, though). Your teacup puppy is growing and needs to gain its strength; therefore, feeding your puppy should be a ritual with extra care.
