What Size Is A Teacup Poodle?
The defining characteristic of Teacup Poodles is their very tiny size, even smaller than Toy Poodles. At the time of birth, Teacup Poodles weigh just 2 lbs. After reaching full maturity, the Teacup Poodle stands at no more than 9 inches at the withers, while weighing less than 7 lbs.
Like Standard Poodles, Teacup Poodles are characterized by a round head with a slight stop, droopy ears and a long muzzle. They have small and dark but very alert eyes, a long neck, a deep chest, a square body with a straight back, and long, muscular legs.
One of the most distinguishing features of all Poodles, including Teacup Poodles, is their coat. Teacup Poodles typically have coats covered with long hair, instead of fur. This long hair gives them the appearance of a fluffy doll.
The hair on Teacup Poodles can be clipped in various styles, and very often, you’ll find most of them clipped in the Continental style. This is a style where the hair on the pooch’s face, hindquarters, and legs is clipped, while leaving balls of hair on the tip of the tail and on the hocks.
The coat of Teacup Poodles can have various textures, from soft and wavy to coarse and wooly. Purebred Teacup Poodles usually come with a solid coat, with the common coat colors being blue, black, brown, gray, silver, red, beige, white, café au lait and apricot.
