I have been breeding Chihuahuas, for a long time and I have #10 of my own. I can tell you for a fact, that there is no such thing, as a Teacup, Miniature, or Pocket Size Chihuahua. A Chihuahua is a Chihuahua, no matter what size it is. Some breeders, use these phrases as marketing tools, to describe the different sizes, that Chihuahua's come in, but these are all incorrect. The term Teacup is nothing more, than the runt of a litter being bred with another runt, to produce a smaller puppy. I myself, refuse to breed any of my runts, because it's very dangerous to the mother. There are only two types of Chihuahuas and they are Short Hair and Long Hair Chihuahuas. Chihuahuas normally weigh from 3-6 pounds. In some cases, a little heavier.

Most people do not know this but there is only one breed of chihuahua, you can breed 2 long hairs and get a short hair or other way around. You can breed 2 10lbs dogs and get a 2lbs dog dor breed 2 2lbs dogs and get a 10lbs. Yes you may have a better chance of getting a smaller dog by breeding two small dogs but there is only one breed of chihuahua. The teacup/toy is usally the runt and has a lot of health issues. Keep in mind the smaller the dog the more prone it is to health/bone/teeth problems.

Their is no TEA CUP people just want more money. Anything under 3lbs is not always in good health. Chihuahuas are toys. Chihuahuas come in all different size and lbs

Teacup puppies are lighter in weight than Chihuahua. If a Chihuahua puppy is 3 pound then the Teacup is lighter in weight and is approximately of 2 pound. You can check for this website for more details:
