Full Answer

There is no recognized breed called a miniature Pomeranian, also known as teacup or toy Pomeranian. The term refers to Pomeranians that are smaller than the usual or acceptable weight of the breed, according to American Kennel Club.

Pomeranians are already one of the smallest toy class breeds, weighing in between 3 and 7 pounds. Some breeders may use the term miniature or toy to refer to Pomeranians that come in at the low end of the acceptable weight, at 3 or 4 pounds. Dogs that come in under the acceptable weight limit are more susceptible to health issues.
