Teacup Poodles are very expensive dogs. They are considered designer dogs and their price tags express this. The price of a Teacup Poodle can range anywhere between eight hundred and one thousand dollars and come in many colors. Their popularity is due to their size and the fact that they are very easy to maintain. Their origins go back centuries when Poodles were used in traveling circuses in Europe. They were used as performers for entertainment purposes.
The early years of royalty caught on to the craze of the performing Poodles and most had Poodles with them courtside. They soon became very pampered pets, a trait which has carried on today. But one must consider the Teacup Poodle's size when choosing a Poodle for a family pet. A two to four pound dog is a very delicate dog and one must think twice before adopting one of these pets if there are young children or irresponsible children in the home.
Teacup Poodles should be no taller then eight inches tall or weigh more then four pounds. These dogs are very healthy dogs as long as get the proper nutrition in their diets. Sometimes they can get a low sugar hit and a little karo syrup on your finger will take care of this problem. But if food is left out for him during the day there should not be any problem of low sugar.
However healthy these dogs are they are considered to be quite fragile and delicate. They cannot jump off or on a bed or sofa and must be watched carefully so they do not fall off. They can very easily break one of their legs if they were to fall off a bed or a sofa. These dogs are great fun to have around and quite the conversation piece because of their size. They are easy to care for and have a genuine personality and will be very loyal to their owner.
