The teacup Pomeranian is a hot topic as a very small Pomeranian. Some people may not know what kind of dog it is because it has a short history since it was born. Therefore, this time, we will introduce the body size, personality, and hair characteristics of the Teacup Pomeranian.
What kind of dog is a teacup Pomeranian?
Teacup Pomeranians have smaller than average Pomeranians as parents and look like smaller Pomeranians. It is named Teacup Pomeranian because it is so small that it can fit in a teacup. It became a hot topic because it was owned by a famous overseas celebrity, and the existence of the teacup Pomeranian became known.
However, in reality, it is a dog breed with a short history, and the number of dogs is still small. In fact, when you become an adult dog, it can grow to a size that is not much different from the original Pomeranian. In addition, it has been pointed out that ultra-small dogs may have weaknesses and other health concerns, so they are not recognized as official breeds in Japan.
Therefore, be sure to check the health status of the Teacup Pomeranian and information on the parent dog before keeping it.
The proper size of the Teacup Pomeranian is unclear as it is not officially recognized as a breed. Since the standard height of a normal Pomeranian is 18 to 22 cm and the weight is 1.8 to 2.3 kg, the teacup Pomeranian is smaller than this, and it is recognized that the height is less than 20 cm and the weight is about 1.8 to 2 kg.

Teacup Pomeranian hair loss
Here, we will introduce the properties of teacup Pomeranian hair and hair loss.
Hair properties and coat color
The fluffy and soft coat of the Teacup Pomeranian is a double coat (double structure) with upper and lower hair.
In addition to white, cream, and orange coat colors, there are also types in which these coat colors are mixed. White and cream coat colors are especially popular.
About hair loss
With double coat hair, the lower hair that regulates body temperature grows in spring and autumn, so a lot of hair falls off during that time. Leaving hair loss can cause the hair to become entangled and the coat to become less breathable, which can lead to skin disorders. Brush frequently to remove hair loss.
A slicker brush is suitable for removing hair loss. Hold the handle as if you were holding a pencil, and brush along the flow of hair without exerting too much force.
