Small is Also Beautiful! – Teacup Puppies

There is no pet as popular as a dog, the good old man’s best friend. The world of these canines is vibrant and dynamic. The attachment of men over their pet dogs is such that there are instances of pets abducted for ransom!

The type and breed of dogs is as wide and diverse as any other living thing on earth. Some breeds naturally occurred and some developed for specific purposes.

On a macro level, dogs can be divided into working dogs and companion dogs. Working dogs are trained for specific tasks that are useful to their master, not kept merely as pets. Dogs are trained as herding dogs for guarding the flocks and herds. Sled dogs, still in use in some parts of the world, are used for transport. Rescue dogs are specially trained to assist people in distress. Guard dogs’ primary role is to protect a property. Hunting dogs assist hunters to track, and retrieve game. Service dogs help people with various disabilities in discharging their everyday tasks. Dogs are even taught to perform difficult tricks to entertain an audience. A poodle for instance, is regularly used in circus.

Companion dogs on the other hand are primarily kept as pets. While the lower strata of society usually raise working dogs, the rich and the famous keep fancy companion dogs as a status symbol. Usually companion dogs are smaller in size and need a lot of care and grooming. The smaller of dog breeds are called Toy Dogs, an official term recognised by leading kennel clubs such as the American Kennel Club or British KC.

There are many breeds of dogs that have been bred down in size and called Toy Dogs. Pomeranian, Maltese, Chihuahua, Papillon, Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle, Italian Greyhound are some of the popular toy dogs. The smaller of the toy dogs are called Teacup dogs or puppies. Teacup dog is a widely used, but not officially recognised term. Leading Kennel Clubs have not recognised teacup dogs, yet it remains a popular classification for dogs in the market. Teacup dogs need great care and grooming and they need hygienic and safe surroundings. With proper care, they can live for as long as 16 years.

Some of the popular teacup puppies are Chihuahua, Maltese, Yorkshire Terrier, Pomeranian and Poodle. Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dogs originating from Mexico, while Pomeranian is perhaps the most popular type of toy dog around the world.
