The Big & Small Of It…
Teacup Chihuahuas are often the cutest and it’s perceived to be the smallest dogs of all.
But it’s important to make this distinction:
“Along with ‘mini,’ ‘pocket’ and ‘tiny toy,’ ‘teacup’ is sometimes used to describe Chihuahuas and other dogs that are very small. These and similar terms are not officially used by any kennel club or reputable breeder, and are not breeds or specific types of Chihuahua. In particular, all Chihuahuas are toy dogs. There is no such thing as a ‘toy Chihuahua.”
