Choosing Ethical Sources
Hopefully this information will help you in selecting someone reputable to deal with. Be careful if you are getting a puppy online and choosing a breeder that you are dealing with a reputable show exhibitor. Be very careful with anyone offering Teacup Yorkies or Mini or any other such term. There is no adult dog that will fit in a Teacup and already tells you the caliber of the person using such a term. The quality and health will not be there, as the only thing important is a tiny dog. When looking for a dog, look to someone that breeds for the overall dog, which is a show exhibitor.
A normal size dog varies in the size they produce. A more normal size toy dog between 5 and 7 lbs is a really small dog itself but more capable of living in a normal household and not as prone to getting stepped on or having to worry every minute if they ate enough. The tinies can be very prone to hypoglycemia also if they miss meals, so all around you will be much happier with a normal size dog.
