The Poodle dog breed has been known throughout Western Europe for at least 400 years and is depicted in 15th-century paintings and in bas-reliefs from the 1st century. The subject is controversial of where the dog was officially developed and no one really knows the breed’s true country of origin. France has taken a claim on the origin, but the AKC (American Kennel Club) gives the honor to Germany, where they say it was used as a water retrieval dog. Other claims have been Denmark or ancient Piedmont. What is certain is that the dog was a descendant of the now-extinct French Water Dog, the Barbet, and possibly the Hungarian Water Hound.
The name “Poodle” most likely came out of the German word “Pudel,” which means “one who plays in water.” The “Poodle clip” was designed by hunters to help the dogs swim more efficiently. They would leave hair on the leg joints to protect them from extreme cold and sharp reeds. The hunters in Germany and France used the Poodle as a gundog and as a retriever of waterfowl and to sniff out truffles lying underground in the woods. The French started using the breed as a circus performer because of the dog’s high intelligence and trainability.
The breed became very popular in France, which led to the common name “French Poodle,” but the French people actually called the breed the “Caniche,” meaning “duck dog.” The Micro, Teacup Toy, and Miniature Poodle varieties were bred down from larger dogs, today known as Standard Poodles. In the 18th century, smaller poodles became popular with royal people. The three official sizes are the Toy, Miniature, and Standard Poodle. They are considered one breed and are judged by the same written standard but with different size requirements. Breeders are also breeding an in-between size called a Klein Poodle (Moyen Poodle) and a smaller Teacup Poodle.
Toy Poodle Character:
Some of the Poodle’s talents include: retrieving, agility, watchdog, competitive obedience, and performing tricks.
The Teacup Poodle dog puppy is remarkably intelligent. Highly responsive, it is said to be one of the most trainable breeds. Sweet, cheerful, perky, and lively, it likes to be with people. Delightful, very amusing, and keen. Socialize them well. They make a very good watchdog for their size. Without the proper type and amount of exercise, they may be high-strung and timid. If the human is not 100% pack leader, they may snap if they are teased or surprised. Toy Poodles are generally good with other pets and dogs. Unless given rules to follow and limits as to what they are, and are not allowed to do, this breed will tend to bark a lot. Do not let this small dog develop Small Dog Syndrome, human-induced behavior where the dog believes he is a pack leader to humans.
This causes varying degrees of behavior issues, including, but not limited to snapping, growling, guarding, demanding, untrustworthiness with children and sometimes adults, sensitive, nervous, reserved with strangers, and obsessive barking, as the dog tries to tell the humans what it is HE wants THEM to do. This little dog puppy can be good with children, however, is usually recommended for older children who know how to display leadership skills.
The reason is that most humans treat the Poodle dog in such a way that makes them unsure just who the pack leader is in the human-dog relationship. The Poodle dog, in his own mind, is convinced HE is the leader of humans.
These are not Tea Cup Poodle traits, but rather traits brought on by meek owners. Make sure you are your dog’s firm, consistent, confident pack leader, providing daily mental and physical exercise in order to have a trustworthy, mentally stable dog.
All Puppy Heaven Teacup Puppies have complete up-to-date shots and dewormings. This does not mean that they have gone through the full set of them. We give them their shots as needed. Once you pick up or your new puppy, or once we have your puppy delivered to you, you will most likely have to continue the set of shots and dewormings until the puppy is fully up-to-date. Remember, there is absolutely no taking your puppy out in public before it receives all of its shots.
Some purebred puppies will come with a full pedigree certification aplication which indicate the puppy’s date-of-birth, breed, coat color, 2 generation lineage of registered sires and dames, and more. Our puppies are registered with one of these registry agencies: American Kennel Club (AKC), Continental Kennel Club (CKC), American Canine Association (ACA) , or World Dog Registration Club (WDRC).
The puppy information tab will indicate if a puppy is registered and if so, the type of registration.
All mixed breed puppies do not come with any type of registration papers.
Puppy Heaven has a very fair health guarantee policy. Every puppy comes with a health guarantee. Some of the things we cover include: life threatening viral diseases and congenital defects. To see the full terms and conditions, please contact us directly so we can send you a copy.
Yes. We ship our puppies if you live far away. If the airport allows it, we will ship your teacup puppy to your nearest airport. In addition to the cost of the puppy’s adoption, PuppyHeaven.com charges $300 for shipping. This covers the Health Certificate, Traveling Crate, Water Dispenser, Air Flight, and Care and Handling. Once payment is made in full, Puppy Heaven books the flight, makes the arrangements and gives you all the information and details for pickup. Service depends on weather conditions as well as individual airline and airport policies. Ask about our special hand delivery service. More info can be found on Puppy Heaven’s Shipping & Handling page.
The first indicator is the breed of the dog. To estimate what the puppy’s full-grown size will be, first figure out which breed you want. Every dog has its own characteristics and no two teacups will grow the same. Yorkies weigh about 1.5 lbs (24 oz.) at 10 weeks old and will likely grow to become 3-4 lbs. For more information on how big the teacup puppy you want to purchase will become, please contact us directly for an accurate weight measurement.
We invite you to visit our nursery located in the San Fernando Valley right outside of Los Angeles City or our location in Las Vegas. Please call or e-mail to schedule an appointment. Business hours are listed on the contact page. Feel free to contact us at any time to learn more about who we are, what we do, and the puppies we match to loving families. We’re happy to share our knowledge, we’re happy to help, and we’re especially happy to welcome you to the Puppy Heaven Family!
Puppy Heaven understands the value of your business and wants to give you the easiest way possible to buy the puppy of your dreams. In order to do so, we’ve created the ‘make an offer’ feature. We want you to give us your best price and if we find it matches with what we can do for you, then we will approve your offer. Simply go to the profile page of the dog you wish to adopt and click the ‘make an offer’ button on the bottom of its’ profile. We will send you a response and get the ball rolling.
Puppy Heaven takes the time to get to know the families and people that will be adopting our rare and remarkable teacup puppies. We hold interviews in person, over the phone, or both with all potential buyers and adopters. From time to time we must deny a family ownership of a puppy from our kennel. This is based on our own set of standards, intuition, and feelings after an interview. We only want the best for our puppies because our puppies deserve the best loving and safest environment possible. We hope you understand and we apologize for any frustration this may cause to those who get denied.
Every customer is required to get his or her new teacup puppy examined by a veterinarian within 72 hours of pickup or delivery. If the vet finds a defect in the puppy’s health, you may return the puppy within 72 hours for a full refund. For those who live in and around the San Fernando Valley, we recommend taking your puppy to the Northridge Pet Hospital for a free check-up. For puppies that have to board a plane, we issue a Health Certificate that ensures the puppy’s good health status. However, you are still required to take your puppy to the vet within 72 hours from the time you pick up your puppy from the airport or when it gets delivered to your doorstep.
Teacup is a term of endearment for a very small dog. It is not a breed or a kind of dog. This term is not recognized by any official dog federation. But every breed has a smallest kind of dog, and teacup is the common way to describe them. Simply put, Puppy Heaven carries the world’s smallest dogs. Sizes of teacup puppies vary between breeds.
