We’re going to be honest here: These pups are irresistibly cute and resistance is futile. Prepare to “Ooh!” and “Aah!”

Our list includes tiny dog breeds weighing approximately three to six kilograms

While we can’t deny teacup breeds are super cute, these pups usually weigh only 1.8kg and are not recognised by many official bodies, including the American Kennel Club (AKC).

The AKC states, “This is not an actual size classification and is usually attained through breeding runts. So-called teacup dogs often come with a host of health problems.”

These include hypoglycemia, respiratory issues, heart defects, and digestive problems, just to name a few.

Plus, they’re so fragile and tiny that you have to be on high alert as a pet parent to prevent injury.
