Why Choose a Teacup Pomeranian?
What is a Teacup Pomeranian and what makes a person choose to buy this breed over others?
Nikki of Mini Pomeranians says: “That one is easy 🙂
- a teacup is smaller than the standard size breed which is used for show /breeding
- as pups they got into a teacup like other tiny breeds ( chihuahuas etc )
- if you have a 6ft mum and 6ft dad you are likely to get a 6ft offspring
- teacups are under standard size (2.5kg)
- micro poms and micros in other breeds are under 1kg
- so tiny they can have health issues so we generally aim for 1-2kg as an adult by putting a small mum with a tinier dad
Why choose one? Besides they are adorable in looks they are adorable in character. Very intelligent, quick to learn tricks, very loyal, very loving and will follow you everywhere. Man (and woman’s) best friend for life (and they live a long time – 14 years plus).”
What type of owners buy a Teacup Pomeranian?
“Usually women or when men buy it’s for their g/f, wife or daughter. The temperament is amazing! They are very intelligent and very affectionate and love all the attention you can give them and they are very loyal and lots of fun. They do actually smile!
My advice for going for a teacup Pom instead of other breeds …is go for it! You will never want a different breed ever again! They are very addictive and many customers come back for another!”
