Many breeders use terms such as teacup yorkies, miniature yorkie, toy yorkshire terrier, mini, teacup, tea cup, tiny and etc. to help in describing the adult size of the puppy. This practice can definitely help a customer to quickly find the size of dog they are looking for. The drawback is that there isn't a standard definition for any of these terms,such as teacup puppies.
One breeder may define a teacup yorkie for sale as any Yorkie under 5 lbs. and another breeder might consider a teacup yorkshire terrier puppy for sale as any yorkie under 3 lbs. As a customer, if you buy a teacup yorkie puppy and are expecting a pup that will only grow to be 3 lbs. and you didn't know that the breeder's definition of teacup yorkshire terrier is anything under 5 lbs. you might feel that the breeder misrepresented the dog.
In an effort to eliminate any misrepresentation, on all of the for sale pages we provide our customers with the estimated adult weight of the pup they purchased along with the weight of the sire and the dam of the puppy.
Another group of terms that may be misleading are babydoll face, cobby, and short legs. We will provide the height and the length of our teacup puppies to help eliminate any confusion with the terms cobby and short legs. To help with babydoll face we will provide any additional pictures of the puppy that the customer feels are necessary.
Before buying a teacup yorkie, we recommend reading the yorkie buying guide article.
Hope this information is useful as you view our Teacup Yorkies.
As I have stated before, teacup is a adjective describing the proper noun Yorkie and there isn't any standard definition. Micro, mini, miniature and tiny fall into this same category. All the terms mean smaller than average size Yorkie. You can use search terms such as micro yorkies for sale, mini yorkies for sale, tiny yorkies for adoption, micro teacup yorkies, mini teacup yorkies, tiny teacup yorkies, miniature teacup yorkies, and etc. to find a teacup yorkie puppy for sale. But remember that once you find a teacup yorkshire Terrier for sale that you like you need to find out what the estimated adult weight is going to be.
