Most good breeder s will tell you about the low sugar issues and how to care for them... IMHO and None breeder mind avoid very hot and very cold months if you can...

Are you going to show the pup?

Somebody told you the right thing - less than 6-9 lbs and the dog is at a health risk.

It's a good idea to stay away from anyone who tries to sell you a "teacup" "tiny toy" "micro mini" or "pocket" poodles. Those names are gimmicks that only say that someone put emphasis on breeding as small a dog as possible. Chances are that you will get a sickly dog that will cost you a lot of money and heartache.

I will say the purebreds I have adopted at older ages are wonderful but my wallet is much much lighter due to health issues... but I have had mutts with issues also ...

Where have you been trying to locate breeders?

Smile Toy Poodles and Chihuahas, Oh My!

Your dog in your photo looks like he/she has chihuaha in her or him. My dog, Woody, the star of my book, was a toy poodle/maltese/chihuaha and he was a tough little cutie who weighed only 5 pounds at his "fattest." He had few allergies and quirks, as some purebred toys can have. (But we love 'em anyway, right?).
