    Stay away from anyone claiming to have teacup anything(no such thing). Dogs that are bred to be undersized, not of standard size for the breed have a host of problems, you will be heartbroken and have a little, undersized animal that will suffer it's poor short lifespan. Pomeranians are a Toy Breed, look up toy Breeds and standard size. Misleading information you are getting.

    If its not mentioned in the breed standard, its a backyard breeder dog with lots of genetic problems.  The Pom is one size - read the standard for height and weight size.  There is no "miniature" or "toy" size.

    There is none because they're both backyard breeder dogs that backyard  breeders produce for people who don't know any better. Backyard breeders produce dogs that are riddled with temperament issues, health issues, and physical abnormalities of various degrees. 

    There's only one Pomeranian breed and no breed standard or responsible  breeder uses the terms Miniature or Teacup for the Pomeranian breed.

    One thing they have in common is that they are both mutations of the breed.  No standard for these creatures.  lots of health issues.

    There is no such recognized breed as the Teacup, miniature, toy Pomeranian or any other name that implies that there is a separate and distinct dog breed, smaller than the standard Pom.The only real and recognized breed is simply the "Pomeranian".

    .Neither exist.

    Poms come in ONE recognized size.    There is NO SUCH THING as a "toy", "mini" or "teacup" pom.

    "Teacup" is not a recognized size for ANY breed.   Just a marketing gimmick used by crap breeders to sell runts for a higher price.

    The breed standard calls for them to be under 6 pounds.   If that size range still isnt small enough, get a hamster

    Size and about two grand I shouldn't wonder!! It's all very well miniaturising dogs to appeal to silly women who should probably buy themselves a toy or have their own baby but the smaller you go the more health problems you will have. Anyone tells you different is a liar.
