Many people who are interested in buying teacup Chihuahuas for sale are under the assumption that they are searching for a rare and elusive type of dog. However, the term "teacup" is utilized by breeders only as a descriptive term for "smaller than normal" toy dogs. So, while they may not fit exactly into a teacup (except, perhaps at birth), they may fit into a large mug when full size.

Because the Chihuahua breed is relatively expensive (compared to other dogs), it is quite popular for breeders to announce special sales on certain puppies. While most purebred Chihuahuas are placed at higher prices, some mixed teacup Chihuahuas for sale are quite reasonable. If you are not planning on putting your future Chihuahua in a dog show, you may want to consider a mixed teacup Chihuahua.

Before purchasing teacup Chihuahuas for sale, make sure to discuss with their current owner regarding the dogs' personal histories and health. Make sure they have had all of their shots and have gone through deworming and, if you are concerned about pureblood, inquire about their parents' lineage. All honest breeders will be happy to tell you all about their dams and sires and will show proper AKC registration papers when asked.

What to Consider Regarding Teacup Chihuahuas for Sale

Because they are delicate dogs, teacup Chihuahuas are extremely fragile. They are not good for families with small children, and can be hurt or even killed by large dogs even when playing together. Be sure and discuss with all household members the responsibilities of owning and caring for a teacup Chihuahua before purchasing one.
