Tiny Toy and Teacup Poodle Puppies: Now taking Deposits.

I expect 1 more litter the first week of May.

Sometimes I only get 1 pup per litter so that is not as much as it sounds. The smaller the poodle the less puppies it has. I breed teacup to teacup. This way I am guaranteed small puppies but I only get 1 or 2 teacup poodle puppies per litter. More information on these litters is on the nursery page. 

 

Guess What ! We are now adding Phantom toy poodles to our line. We have just acquired a little phantom girl puppy . Click Here To See photo.

Phantom toy poodles Have distinctive Facial and body markings similar to a Doberman Pincher.

Poodle Sizes

There is a lot of controversy over poodle sizes. The AKC Poodle Standard is pretty clear on the subject. The confusion starts when someone is describing a teacup or tiny toy poodle.

Teacups, pocket poodles and tiny toys are all toy poodles. They are just smaller, there is no separate classification for them. American Kennel Club recognize Standard, Miniature, and Toy Poodle sizes only


Here is the general rule.

Teacup, Tiny Toy and Pocket Poodle - Teacup is a term breeders use to describe very small poodles, which usually weigh under four pounds. American Kennel Club recognize Standard, Miniature, and Toy Poodle sizes only. Any other size description is strictly breeder terminology. Teacups average from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pounds and 8 inches at the shoulder or less when full grown. Tiny Toys average between 4 pounds and 6 pounds when fully grown and stand between 8 to 9 inches. I might point out that some poodles will be short (7 inches) and weigh 6 pounds and others will stand 9 inches but only weigh 3 pounds. They do vary.

Royal Standard Poodle - The term is used to imply that your puppy will grow extra large. A normal Standard Poodle will measure over 15 inches tall at the shoulder and the average is around 24 inches for females and 25 to 26 inches for males.

Here is the AKC standard for size

Standard: Over 15 inches in height at the highest point of the shoulders.

Miniature: Over 10 inches and up to 15 inches at the highest point of the shoulders.

Toy: 10 inches or less at the highest point of the shoulders.

Here is a handy growth chart but please note that there are exceptions. I have seen plenty. Click Here
