Find Teacup Pomeranian puppies on sites such as puppyfind.com and petfinder.com. Also known as miniature Pomeranians or toy Pomeranians, they are known for their smaller size. Buyers must use caution when purchasing these puppies, since many breeders have been known to sell unhealthy dogs.

Technically, “Teacup Pomeranian” is not a recognized breed. The term generally describes a Pomeranian that weighs fewer than 3 pounds. Due to the popularity of the breed, many sellers intentionally breed down their litters, which has a significant impact on the dogs’ health and lifespan. Some unscrupulous breeders sell regular-size Pomeranians as puppies, using the “Teacup Pomeranian” label to trick the buyer. Regular Pomeranians are still very small, though; they average from 3 to 7 pounds.

By using puppyfind.com and petfinder.com, potential buyers can find local puppies and dogs listed by breeders and shelters. Each listing identifies the specific cost, as well as more information about vaccinations and household restrictions.

Petpom.com also lists a few reputable Pomeranian breeders who have been screened to ensure that buyers won’t be scammed or receive unhealthy, poorly bred puppies. Dogs that come from a breeder are typically more expensive than dogs rescued from a local shelter; those looking to cut costs should consider adopting a dog.
