Micro Maltese & Teacup Maltese
We receive many emails from people wanting to purchase a Teacup Maltese Puppy or a Micro Maltese.
There is no such thing as a TEACUP MALTESE PUPPY or MICRO MALTESE.
The word “teacup” was used to describe the size of the puppy, meaning it will be under the standard size (4-7lbs) for the toy group breed
If a breeder says they specialize in TEACUPS… BEWARE!
Most “teacups” are the runt of the litter or premature puppies. So called “teacups” go from $10,000. Please do your own research.
“Tea-cup” is just a marketing technique by unethical breeders to raise the price of their puppies.
Elvis (sire) of ALL of our puppies weighs 3 lbs. The dams weigh between 5-7lbs pre-pregnancy. Therefore our puppies end up on the smaller side.
In essence, this word may be used to describe the size, but there is no such thing as a “teacup maltese”, “teacup chihuahua” or a “teacup Yorkie”. Any reputable breeder will tell you this.
