The Maltese is the most ancient breed from Europe, with the first written evidence of the breed coming from the third century B.C. A teacup Maltese is essentially a miniature version of the already small breed. Teacup puppies are any dog that weighs less than 4 pounds fully grown. The teacup Maltese is not an officially recognized breed and does not meet the American Kennel Club standard, which is an ideal weight between 4 and 6 pounds.
