The Yorkshire Terrier is a very popular breed, but there are still many people who get confused when they hear terms like 'Miniature Yorkshire Terrier' and 'Teacup Yorkshire Terrier', so here is some information on the latter:

Introduction

The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire, England as a working class dog bred to catch mice and other rodents and 'pests'. Over the years, however, it has become smaller in size due to the selective breeding of smaller dogs and has gone from being a 'worker' to a family pet and a breed that is also very popular with the upper class.

The average weight of a Yorkshire terrier or Yorkie is around 7 pounds. It has a tan and steel blue silky coat that can either be kept long and silky or trimmed, small black eyes and a black nose.

Yorkshire Terrier Vs. tekop Yorkshire

There are many opposing views on what Teacup Yorkie really is. For example, many believe that this 'variant' is just a beautiful term used by unethical breeders to entice people to believe that they are buying a unique terrier breed when in fact it is a Miniature Yorkie. Others believe that the Yorkshire teacup deserves to be recognized as a separate breed because its physical characteristics are not the same as a Yorkie.

However, the American Kennel Club or AKC does not recognize Teacup Yorkshire as a separate breed or even a variant at all.

Teacup Yorkie is basically a miniaturized version of the regular or regular Yorkie. It is extremely small and weighs no more than 3 pounds, which earned this variant its name. It's similar to the Yorkie in every respect, except it's a pint sized version of the Yorkshire terrier.

Ethical concerns

There are a few controversies and issues surrounding Teacup Yorkshire because many animal lovers and others suggest that this variant is the result of unethical breeding that is mostly outrageous in puppy mills. In addition, there are claims that Teacup Yorkshire is nothing more than a real little Yorkie bred by mating the smallest dog from each litter and still being promoted and sold as a fancy, unique breed.

Health problems

As the Yorkshire teacup is very small, it is prone to a number of health and genetic problems and also has a shorter lifespan than its larger counterpart. It can only live up to 3 to 7 years on average, and problems such as heart and kidney defects, diabetes, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, skeletal malformations and dental problems are not uncommon in this Yorkie variant.

Apart from the above genetic problems, Teacup Yorkshire is also very fragile and more susceptible to damage and breakage, so it needs to be treated and handled with extreme care. https://everydoghas.com/%e0%b8%a2%e0%b8%ad%e0%b8%a3%e0%b9%8c%e0%b8%84%e0...
