Hi to Puppy buyers out there...

Yesterday i received a phone call from a somewhat distraught buyer who had firstly been scammed as above, secondly been sold an inferior quality pup, that lasted for all of THREE weeks being at a vet most of those three weeks.

What can you do to protect yourself against unscrupulous breeders, scammers out there.

  • Be cautious of the free ads,  they are not always what they appear to be.  
  • If the breeder has their own website, that would be an advantage but be cautious as well as if it is a FREE WEBSITE design your own for FREE you could be dealing with a scammer
  • Remember you get what you pay for.  Sad to say some people pay out thousands and end up with a pet that is first and foremost inferior quality but if that is not bad enough, it is at the vet most of the rest of its life - sad to say happenign more and more frequently

PLEASE remember breeders who breed quality pups cannot afford to sell them for peanuts, as they have paid to buy breeding stock of quality first and foremost.  Go all out to sell quality healthy pups.  To breed and breed properly COSTS the breeder money. NOTHING cheap about breeding and breeding properly, meaning parent dogs fed teh best, get the best, always up to date fully inoculated, HENCE no parvo or distemper can possibly develop in their offspring PROVIDED the pups are immunised correctly.  

 

BE CAUTIOUS of adverts that read from registered parents..

  • if indeed the parents are registered, there is no reason the pups cannot be registered
  • Pups that are registered may not be good quality either, it depends. REMEMBER registering bodies are purely that, registering bodies, they dont get to see the pups, they would not necessarily know a good pup from a bad one. They rely purely on the integrity of the breeder that all pups they register are the breed they are claimed to be.
  • Be cautious of the word IMPORTED being thrown around as well. It would depend from who a dog was imported and what quality of dog was imported. A fair amount of dogs imported into SA were GIVEN away as being sub-standard.  this happened basically with BIEWER TERRIERS
  • ANOTHER TERM THROWN AROUND SOMEWHAT LOOSELY IS TEACUP SIZES PUPS  this should signal WARNING 

 

HOW DO YOU KNOW THE PUP YOU INTEND BUYING IS INDEED GOING TO BE A SMALL SIZED ADULT...

​Some pointers to consider

  • All small sized pups have small NOSES ?? How would anyone know in the first place what was a small or large sized nose???
  • One thing i can tell you,  smaller sized future adult dogs as pups, ears will all be erect with NO assistance from tape.  This is a very obvious sign your pup is goint to end up a small adult size but htere again how small is small, as not all small pups, are teacup size, not in the least. the pup you view or own has ears that are down, NO SMALL SIZED future adult dog and if your dogs ears are permanently down irresepctive the size the dog is not of good quality.  OR your dog has way too much fur on its ears pulling them down.  
  • Teacups as we refer to ours as being the GENUINE teacup as everyone and their AUNTIE claims to breed teacups are not suited to most people. They are sold at a hefty price simply because they are major hands on to raise by the breeder, if born at teacup weight and remain teacup weight throughout. 
  • You get the odd pup that is born bigger and may end up considerably smaller that happens to us as well, but those pups BORN bigger that end up smaller are far easier to raise than the genuine teacup pup is.
  • No teacup adult dog is suited to breeding, they are way too small.  Your advert reads mother is teacup??? RUN IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION.
  • The teacup dog has a very bad name out there, reason being the way SOME have attempted to produce them and failed miserably. the only way to produce GENUINE TEACUP pups is as nature intended with NO manipulation of any kind by the breeder. the reason we sell all our pups teacups included with HEALTH GUARANTEES.

 

OUR TEACUPS ARE SOLD TO APPROVED BUYERS ONLY - THEY ARE THE CHILD IN THE HOUSE, THEY LEAVE HERE AT FOUR MONTHS OF AGE THEY WILL BE FULLY INOCULATED AND THAT INCLUDES RABIES. THEY WILL BE MICRO CHIPPED. THEY WILL BE REGISTERED. THEY WILL BE STERILISED BY THE NEW OWNER AS PER THE CONTRACT SIGNED AT TIME OF HANDING OVER.  THERE ARE CERTAIN TERMS AND CONDITIONS WE SELL ALL OUR PUPS WITH.

ALL CARRY HEALTH GUARANTEES. WE GUARANTEE NO PUP LEAVES US, BEING AT RISK OF DEVELOPING PARVO OR DISTEMPER. NO PUP LEAVES US WITH ANY SKIN DISEASE

WE GO THAT EXTRA MILE, WE ARE ULTRA FUSSY ABOUT THE BABIES WE SELL AND VERY STRICT WITH WHERE ARE PUPS END UP GOING TO.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

TEACUP MANIA - TEACUP - TEACUP -TEACUP

know THE facts...........

 

Sorry maybe difficult to see but two out and out angels in their LARGE carrier which doubles as a playpen which keeps them 100% safe

 

Photographed above 2 GENUINE TEACUP pups 3 and 4 months of age

WE ‘R’ THE GENUINE T’CUP PUP

Producing T CUPS for 20 years breeding yorkies for in excess of 30 years

Teacups bred as nature intended NOT INTERBRED

We sell with HEALTH GUARANTEES always have

We work with WAITING LISTS only!!!!!!!!!!

We don’t farm with dogs, and we are not a PUPPY MILL,

 we NEVER have pups in  LARGE quantities

 

TIP for buyers out there wanting the small sized pups

  • THEIR EARS ARE PRICKED FROM THE START (MEANING up)
  • Ears that require taping to stand erect are NOT small sized pups
  • Pups with ears that are down are not small sized pups UNLESS they have been major  ill then this may be the case. It would then be advised to keep well clear. 
  • Be cautious don’t become another victim
  • WHAT IS A TEACUP DOG? In my language a healthy robust pup that is a maximum weight of 1.1kg as adult, with NO HEALTH ISSUES
  • A miniature is not a small sized dog

Our teacups we have bred have been as little as 550gms as an adult weight and HEALTHY living for 12 and 14 years with NO health issues

ENSURE YOU ARE SUITED TO OWNING, THE VERY TINY SIZED PUP AND DOG,

WE WILL NOT SELL TO ANYONE WE FEEL DOES NOT MEET THE CRITERIA REQUIRED, TO OWN AND RAISE THIS SIZE OF PUP

JUST A NOTE OF APPRECIATION Hello Joyce, I just had a read through your website and was so impressed with everything you said. I have been 'preaching' tiny-yorkie etiquette to people for many years. My pet (no pun intended) hate was and still is, those people who used to come up to me while walking with my doggie (1,5kg) and asking where I 'got" it because they want one for their kids. Then I have to explain that a tiny yorkie is not a plaything for small kids and that they should really get a bigger doggie for kids to play with. Anyway, I have tears in my eyes, missing my little Emily so much seeing all the look-a-likes in your gallery . One day I will have another tiny yorkie and I will most certainly put my name on your waiting list. R.I.P Emily (2001 - 2016)

 

SO PLEASED TO RECEIVE THIS EMAIL AND BE ABLE TO POST IT HERE.  I have been trying to educate the public regarding the owning of the teacup pup for the last twenty years.   I am not only referring to the size YVETTE  refers to above but the REAL DEAL GENUINE HEALTHY TEACUP pup and dog that the majority of folks have not seen in real life.   An adult dog of anything in weight from 550gms and up.

Most breeders  have never bred one or owned one.  There are certain DO's and DONT's one adheres to when owning this size of pup. it is not for everyone.  This size of pup out there has a very bad  reputation as a result of people buying them that dont know how to handle them, being sold them by breeders that have no idea how to handle them or raise them, hence the reason i am inundated with SAD STORIES regarding what went down when 

small pups were purchased by the public who did not realise what it took to raise a tiny sized pup, thr huge responsibiity it is.

If you are looking to own or purchase a very small sized pups do the research on what can go wrong and how quick it can go wrong.

We only sell or add people to our waiting list we feel are suited to own this dog.  

  • firstly what is most important is BUYING a proper healthy pup and not an underaged pup or sickly pup
  • once you have the real deal, knowing how to handle it
  • so many people dont realise what goes into owning a tiny 

THE PROPER TINY PUP SHOULD NOT LEAVE ITS BREEDER FOR AT LEAST THREE MONTHS IF NOT FOUR MONTHS, DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE TEACUP

i could and i may very well add some emails from the public on what they have been through TRYING to buy the teacup pup.  The vet bills incurred, the loss of a precious life anythign from day one to three weeks later....  

 

Teacups pups are not for children, teenagers or students

Owned the GENUINE teacup dog for the last thirty plus years, no overnight sensation,

and no figment of the imagination either

WE 'R' THE TEACUP YORKIE

LIVE FOR TWELVE TO FOURTEEN YEARS WITH NO HEALTH ISSUES

HOWEVER THIS IS IF THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT HANDS TO BEGIN WITH,

VERY FEW PEOPLE FIT THE BILL TO OWN A GENUINE TEACUP

THEY ARE NOT FASHION STATEMENTS OR COOL TO OWN

THIS IS A LIFE...

 

 

 

 

We are in the process of redoing this website thank you for your patience.

 

 

The URGE to own that very TINY sized dog…   18 September 2018

 

I believe very few people totally understand how these small sized dogs are born, bred etc.  Most people think they are out there by the dozens, a good few to choose from and that could not  be further from the truth, HEALTHY SMALL SIZED dogs are not the NORM, never have been the norm and I doubt ever will be the norm. HOWEVER, THEY DO EXIST.

You get the odd breeder who does the strangest things to produce these tinies, without taking into consideration the strange stuff they do will impact on the overall health of the pups they produce. Something like INTERBREEDING,  Mother to son, Father to daughter and so it continues, producing pups and dogs with major health issues, the new owner has to contend with the majority of that pup/dog’s life which in most cases is not very long, SHORT LIVED dogs.

Producing small sized dogs as nature intended is what most dog owners would want and it can and does happen. 

I am going to include a mail I received only this morning from a member of the public which is the NORM out there.  Often when someone contacts me saying they want another small sized dog, they have one, I immediately ask them why not go back to the breeder you got your baby (which is now an adult dog) from??? The story is almost always the same, it has been the ONLY one they have ever produced or at the time they sold it to me, I bought it we had no idea it would turn out to be small and that too happens to me.  There are no golden rules, GROWTH charts, well those are not the best way to gauge any future adult mass of any pup, unless, the pup is born at a certain weight, and sticks within the weight limits every single week however, this alone is not GUARANTEED, the pup must be disease free, no internal parasites at all eg. worms, must eat properly from the get go and be fed properly. This story of they only drink form the mother till they are UMPTEEN weeks of age, is HOGWASH.

I have even had the public come to me advising me that they bought a pup that has been bottle fed, the breeder guarantees it is tiny. ANYONE buying a pup that needs to be bottle fed is crazy.  The mere fact it has to be fed tells one very big story, one I would keep well away from.  No matter how tiny any pup is it should eat and eat very well and the tinier the pup, the more frequent that pup should eat and that would be around the clock.

Anyone buys a pup and is told feed twice or three times daily this is NO SMALL future adult weight dog.

I am also inundated with the public advising me of a pup they can buy from someone out there, pup weighed x at birth now weighs Y what do I think? Firstly I cannot comment on anyone else’s pup.  So much goes into the raising of a pup from birth.

  • How many pups in the litter?
  • Did the pup get a fair share of mother’s milk?
  • At what age did this pup begin to eat?
  • Any set-backs of any kind this pup experienced? If so that alone will impact on the overall indication of the pup’s future adult weight.

We produce pups from NORMAL weight adult females and smaller males but not mice sized males, as those are not suited to any form of breeding.

We get pups that from day one are born at a certain weight, every single week from birth reach the goal weight, they reach all goals, we expect them to reach as a certain sized pup for a future certain sized, adult weight dog.

You do get the exception where the pup is born at a pretty high weight, as it goes along the dogs weekly expected weight gain drops significantly but selling a pup like this to the public is questionable as it may decide to have a growth spurt along the way and end up more to the indicated adult weight at birth,  than the going along week by week process.  So it is first and foremost very important to go with a breeder who does have some insight into the smaller sized dogs, don’t go on “hearsay either”, they should be able to show you what they breed, etc,  not necessarily their own dogs, but the people out there who own their dogs.

You must be able to trust the breeder of your choice,  we all make mistakes this is a process that is not easy by any stretch of the imagination,  but over the years you learn more and more.

NO really small sized pup should be leaving the breeder at 8 weeks of age. Many years back we used to do that when the new owner was pushy etc, however we have not sold tinies in years at that age.  OUR genuine teacups leave us at FOUR MONTHS of age.  Fully inoculated, health guarantees, microchipped, registration to follow etc. Sold strictly on a spay/neuter contract. Every pup of ours irrespective of the size will be sold as a PET on a contract. We have never sold the first pup for any form of breeding ever.

Every single pup we have bred for the best part of the last twenty plus years leaves here MICRO CHIPPED. This way that pup and ultimate adult dog will be identifiable.

We only sell our pups as PETS, not for any form of breeding. We will only see a GENUINE teacup pup to a qualified buyer.

Looking to purchase a proper SMALL sized pup takes time, we do not breed by the dozen, we do however pride ourselves in what we do breed and sell are guaranteed to be fully socialised, NO CAGE breeding, guaranteed to have an exceptional temperament, are quality, well cared for babies you can adopt and enjoy for many years to come.  If you want a small sized dog as in YESTERDAY don’t contact me, I will not be able to assist you. 

This is a specialised size dog small sizes are not the norm so be patient if this is what you are looking for.

Hi there,

 

My name is Chanel.

I hope you are doing well?

I am sorry to have email you so late in the evening.

I have two little babies Milo and Cooper, Milo is very tiny and got him 7 years back Cooper i just received a few months after.

Cooper was supposed to be the same small little guy and he got bigger not that i mind he stays my little boy. 

I have been looking like crazy for another small baby like Milo, and Sunday at the shops i found someone with a little girl just like my milo and she was such a beauty and lovable. I then asked the question, where did you guys find her and she came from you guys.

So this is me, emailing for info regarding your babies. 

I have been looking for a while so i can wait.

I may not like it but hey like i said i have been waiting.

I was about to buy a baby that weighs now 445g on 7 weeks not sure how the weight thing works. 

I bought  Milo and Cooper and got lucky i guess with Milo.

Anyway talking too much, and can’t wait for your response.

Oh and on the note, i attached some photos. And yes that’s them on holiday as if they can’t go witb then i just won’t go.

Chanelle.

Good morning.

Hope you are well. I would like to find out if you have any teacup pups available for purchase.  If not how do I go about ordering a pup from you. 

I have been pining around and been told some stories that concern me. Stuff like all small sized yorkies don’t live long, they are nothing but trouble, ill health all the time.

I got your contact details from someone a good few years ago but at that time I was not in a position to own a really small dog, however now I am.

If you cannot help me can you advise me of other breeders,  or can you tell me what I look out for, as I know someone who worked with me a couple of years back who has five yorkies, every time she buys one she is told it is a teacup or small pocket and they are all BIG dogs.  I don’t want that experience,  I live in a town house she is in a house, I cannot afford to make the mistake of buying dogs in numbers hoping I get that very small one I have wanted for so long.

Please I am one of many wanting to own a small sized yorkie, can you possibly not share on your website what we should be looking out for. I don’t want to risk buying BIG. I can only own one dog and it has to be the right small size. 

Please come back to me at your earliest convenience.

 

Warm regards

Katie

 

 

UPDATE

AUGUST 11  2019

I am going to add some mails I have received in recent times, all about buying TINIES 

However.  if you are told that it is the norm to have issues with the teacup or small sized dog -  THINK LONG AND HARD - TOTAL NONSENSE.

A properly bred tiny pup that is meant to be tiny from the get-go and BRED CORRECTLY and that is the most important thing of all, that they are bred correctly as Nature intended, not manipulated by a breeder to be produced as this is where the issues arise. Breeders who repeatedly INTERBREED their dogs to obtain TINIES to sell to the public, and then the public land in the soup.

The issue with interbreeding is as follows - any bad traits or health issues in a particular dog are doubled up on when INTERBRED, mother to son, daughter to Father quite sickening actually.  over many years i have met members of the public who tell me so and so breeds these and they are all interbred resulting in them being WEAK, SICKLY pups and dogs and if they reach the DOG stage as most live very short lives. they tell ME this is normal for the tinies, i can tell them itmost certainly is not normal for the tinies at all. I have had genuine teacups live 12 and 14 years with no ill health. however my tinies are bred properly.

if i lived another two lifetimes i could never supply the demand i get for my pups. if you are impatient dont come to me, i cannot supply a dog of this sort of size as in yesterday.  I have waiting lists. i get referrals and repeat business all the time.

Recently i got to chat with a couple who bought a yorkie pup that was missing a dens, never born with a dens. NOW ON MY WAITING LIST.  They told me i had never heard of a DENS i actually had to look that up on the internet.  IT is a part of the neck.  They purchased this pup and in excess of forty thousand rand later in vet bills, a SPECIALIST realised what the issue was.  The reason for this INTERBREEDING de luxe.  There are not too many people out there prepared to spend ths type of money or even could spend this type of money if they wanted to, to try and HELP a pup they purchased as a teacup size dog.  ANYONE wanting the details of these folk are welcome to contact me. 

Years back i had another member of the public wanting a pup from me that would reach 1.2kg in weight.  She then cancelled as had been offered one by a reasonably well known breeder.  The pup would be 1.2kg as adult.  She was over the moon with excitement.  However she applied REVOLUTION to the pup which is quite normal,  some folk use it as a preventative measure against ticks and fleas.  The pup had a bad reaction.   

She ended up going back to the manufacturers and giving them a piece of her mind after this happened a second time to her with this pup.  They wrote back to her and as she had CC'd me in on the mail, i got the reply as well. I have known this lady for a good many years, the reason she told me about this pup and what was going on.  They replied the manufacturers that is, saying to the owner, chances were good the dog had a liver issue,  to have that checked out.  Well of course owner did not believe that for a second. However in time she came to realise this pup had ISSUES.  Extensive testing later the pup was diagnosed of having a liver shunt.  So began the struggle that lasted a couple of years when eventually the dog lost her life to living with LIVER SHUNT.

She went back to the breeder and was told to stop harassing her as she was pregnant.!!!!!!!!!!!!!  R250 000-00 odd later the dog passed away, this particular owner had done everythign possible to save this girl and just by the way the supposed 1.2kg adult weight dog was a 2,5kg adult dog. i too can put you in touch with this lady if you would like to chat with her.  READ UP INFO ON LIVER SHUNT FURTHER DOWN.

Since that time she has purchased two dogs from me and her son a dog of mine. If she had purchased a pup from myself that was diagnosed with liver shunt i would have done somethigng about it and not pushed it aside. ALL OUR PUPS  CARRY HEALTH GUARANTEES for the first year of their lives. ALL OUR PUPS.

In recent times i have heard of one breeder advising a member of the public not to TOUCH a teacup dog. This breeder has a rather short memory as some 12 or so years ago maybe thirteen or so,  she sold someone i knew a TEACUP pup that was no teacup sized pup at all. She even sent the mother dog home with the pup to the new owner??? My dogs would not be too happy if i did that to them.  HELLO does this sound familiar to you???

Another BREEDER who has been around forever sold me a TEACUP pup some 25 years back.  I had to sign on the dotted line if anythign was wrong with that pup that i would have no recourse to her.  Well the pup was not even inoculated, this is yet again another BREEDER who today mouths off about how bad teacup pups are, HELLO are you reading this, remember the thousands i paid you for a PUP WITH NO SKULL.   I took her to the vet to be incoulated, at which time the vet pointed out to me the pup had NO SKULL.  NO point in immunising her she could not live end of story,.  Trust me fascinated me to read how TODAY she goes off about teacup dogs. i should in fact phone her up and remind her of the THOUSANDS i paid that day for a pup that could not live.

Large open fontanels BEWARE however this poor baby did not even have a skull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  You purcahse a pup with a large open gontanel your dog is in danger ....

PLEASE be aware, you as an owner of a tiny must know what you are doing in the first place.  A proper tiny is not for most people,  i say proper as if you buy underaged pups fobbed off as teacups,  this wont end well, this is yet another thing that not you or any vet can do the first thing about. in 99% of instances this pup is not long for this world.

Years back a lady came to me for a teacup pup. she had one that lasted five years but always at a vet. she then bought another that lasted five minutes. She then joined a waiting list with me - however in that time just before i had a baby for her she purchased one from a breeder. Phoned me to tell me,  so my immediate reqaction was congratulations, so you want to cancell with me?  NO came the reply as i dont believe this pup is going to make it.  So she said she would be in touch.  Some days later at the vet every day sometimes twice a day, i got the call, pup had passed away.  ???  i could not quite believe my ears. the pup was diagnosed as being far younger than she was led to believe.

This was not an isolated case.  i got to hear of three such cases from buyers in the JOBURG area around the same time.  Since that time she has had a teacup of mine, is now in ENGLAND and the teacup is 3 years and six months of age WITH NO HEALTH ISSUES whatsoever.

IF anything goes wrong with a baby we sell no matter the size of the pup, we want a full body autopsy done at a LABORATORY not from a vet, a LABORATORY so we know exactly what went down.  so if anything happens to a pup of yours do the same. IF you have proof of the pup being born with a serious health condition your breeder should step up to the plate. HOWEVER i have learnt over many years not to hold my breath when it comes to this as most WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU OR THEIR DEAD OR SICK PUP.  It has happened to me a few times with BREEDERS and happened to a good few hundred members of the public who contacted me over a good many years.  

A healthy tiny that has been bred and raised correctly is not cheap but look at the alternative, you can pay R8 000-00 for a pup that is sold as a teacup that is not bred correctly, not raised correctly costs the new owner twenty to thirty thousand in vet bills and then it dies, what is cheap about that?  i get it often, i have lost the pup all my money??? What has that got to do with me? i can sympathise and i do and i am happy to chat with people who have been conned, abused emotionally destroyed when trying to buy a teacup pup. MORE than happy to chat with them but i did not bring this on them.  I try and warn so many people but they are in a rush...

i get told all the sad stories and i can sympathise but it strangely enough is the same offenders who pop up time and time again having sold SICKLY or underaged pups to the public.

One NOW client of mine, purchased a TEACUP pup from Port Elizabeth it was flown to Durban not well three weeks later it was dead thirty thousand rand vet bill later.  Vet believed the dog to have had a liver shunt.  I asked the owner why did they not send the entire body into the laboratory then they would have known, no point, breeder firstly chatted then was VERY OFF, then BLOCKED them???????????    Firstly NO genuine teacup pup could fly at under eight weeks of age as it would be very tiny.  However this pup was flown at under 8 weeks of age because of convenience sake from the sellers side???? I can give you details of this unfortunate person as well.

It is all well and good to blame the breeder and in some cases they are in the wrong but in a lot of cases the owner did not do right by the pup. NOT for any other reason than they did not know,  what it took to raise that pup.  However it does not matter how good a vet is or how good you are with a pup if you sit with a small sickly pup or very underaged pup the best of us, will not save that life.

 

The story is as such: 

according to some out there

You buy a small sized pup you  must know they are short lived, have issues, etc. TOTAL nonsense. the only time a small sized pup is going to have issues is when it is not bred properly, is underaged to what it was sold as, or the new owner has not got the foggiest idea how to handle the pup.

There are certain things that will kill a pup if not sorted in record time which has nothing whatsoever to do with the breeder but the new owner. We enlighten all our prospective buyers on what it takes to raise a proper tiny pup and most will back off from buying one, while others are hell bent on owning a mouse of a pup even if they dont have the ability, the lifestyle  to raise it properly.  So often it is what the future owners wants, how cool it is to have this mouse of a dog or pup in your hand.  They dont take into consideration what it takes to raise that mouse of a pup.  Some 15 years back i listened to people who claimed they knew it all, NO MORE.   Seven years ago i sold a real tiny to folk who were clients of my vet at that time.  They had somethign like 6 yorkies one of which was mine but a bigger dog, their smallest they owned,  but never sold as a teacup. Once they saw my teacups they had to have one. They had it less than a day when i took it back,they had let the pup lose so much body temperature OUR vet, both theirs and mine advised me i would never turn the pup around it was giong to die.HOWEVER THIS VERY SAME PUP GOT A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH FROM OUR VET THE PREVIOUS DAY.  Some 8 days later after i gave my all to try and save this pup it passed on. i am still waiting for these people to pay the vet bills as they promised to. I took that pup daily to the vet for both their and my sake and the pups sake. Autopsy cleared the pup as being totally healthy.  WRONG OWNERS. My vet being their vet asked me what possessed me to sell them such a small pup??? They would never cope and CLEARLY THEY DID NOT COPE.

There is way much more to buying a small pup and owning one, way much more, if you dont know what you are doing, dont sitck to the rules you in all probabilty will lose that pup.  

I monitor GENUINE healthy teacup pups here around the clock that is the NORM.  if you dont get told to feed your pup throughout the night or you can leave your pup unattended throughout the night, one of two things is the case, your pups is NO TEACUP sized pup or if it is,   you may awake to a dead pup.

I speak from experience having owned my first teacup YORKSHIRE TERRIER at the age of 21 and i am now a Granny.

Over the years when i have met up with breeders, they have said they breed small but my dogs give new meaning to the word small.  Last week i was asked by a member of the public to please put it out there - TO WARN THE PUBLIC OF THE PITFALLS OF OWNING A TINY DOG THAT IS NOT BRED PROPERLY.  sold off as teacup but far younger. In fact another person phoned me telling me she had jus seen one that the breeder claimed was seven weeks of age and she beleived it not to be a day older than 4 weeks of age.???  

 

TO BE CONTINUED.....

 

 

ARTICLE OF THE MONTH:  I AM POSTING THIS AGAIN AS REQUESTED BY A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC. WROTE THIS A GOOD FEW YEARS BACK.

Ringworm –

Worm infestation??? Or fungal infection????

 

This article has been written in an attempt to help folk who have no knowledge or experience with this problem. We are not vets and therefore you should consider this article as written by a layman with experience on hand. AT no stage should you not consider seeing your Vet if you are unsure of your diagnosis and treatment.

 

If you have never seen ringworm or had an animal infected or been infected yourself LUCKY YOU………

 

Ringworm as so often thought – is NO worm infestation  BUT a fungal infection of the skin. NOT the easiest to get rid of, and highly contagious to young, sickly and the old. ????????

 

I have always had a very healthy respect for ringworm, knowing full well what can happen if left untreated and again left for any length of time.

It spells one thing DISASTER……

 

The first time I heard the word RINGWORM  I was a youngster and at the time we owned a Boxer dog, who we put into a boarding kennel when we went on our holiday. On our return the boxer was sporting a lovely ringworm on her chest. MY Dad said washing blue would solve the problem and it did. Ricketts washing blue – cubed still available today. Moisten and apply regularly. The ringworm will be killed and disappear and the hair will in time grow back. (Old wives tail -? Not in this case – it does work)

 

What IS RINGWORM:  a fungus that attacks the skin – fine - In an animal the animal irrespective of specie the fur comes out in a circle. This circle can be perfectly clear it can be very crusty in appearance. Each and every hair follicle that the animal looses carries spores – fungal spores. These in turn will infect the same animal, other animals, humans and can be dropped in places and remain for years to come, and be contagious for a lengthy period of time – years in fact.

 

I was a cat breeder for many years and RINGWORM to me was Bad NEWS.

You have multiple animals and if you are not aware of the problem when you look again it has spread, and trust me no fun.

 

I will explain to you how to treat ringworm in a once off case, how to treat ringworm if you have multiple animals infected and so forth.

 

SADLY numerous breeders of both pedigreed dogs and cats sit with this problem, some for years and years. They do nothing about it, because at this stage it is totally out of control , will cost a fortune to treat and is also very time consuming to treat correctly and a daily chore. NO rush job when it comes to major ringworm infection.

 

I have in the past been unfortunate to pick it up on the very odd occasion but irradicate it as quick as it has been diagnosed. I had the misfortune of Persian cats getting it on the odd occasion when I bred and showed cats some years back. I also know what it took for me to eradicate the problem when I picked it up once from a cat show, and then unknowingly groomed some 40 odd Persians on a weekly basis. HELLO all of a sudden I had a problem.

 

I attach an article I wrote for another website sometime back when a few yorkie breeders who have vast quantities of dogs, hit a problem. HOWEVER, I heard months later – they still had the problem – as I said big bucks to sort and hard, hard work, NO quick cure. To sell animals be it cats, dogs Yorkies whatever, knowing full well you have a ringworm problem in your kennel/cattery is criminal – especially with it being highly contagious to humans and other animals, This sadly persists even today with some breeders out there, who knowingly have the problem.

 

IF you see ringworm on your pet/s?

Do not rush out and buy an anti-fungal shampoo and bath everything in site – bad move.

By all means rush out and buy an anti-fungal shampoo, use it on the lesions only- do not dilute, rub it into the lesion and leave it on. Do it repeatedly, two to three times daily. Wash your own hands thoroughly as well. Never touch anything after handling an infected animal without washing your hands.

Halt all grooming of your animals and bathing especially – you think you are doing the right thing but you are more than likely spreading the problem. Remember to keep an eye out, if you are treating one lesion that does not mean new one’s will not appear. If the animal uses a paw to scratch the infected area – good idea to rub the anti-fungal shampoo on that paw.

 

Diagnosing ringworm. Your vet has an ultraviolet lamp which in most cases will flures ringworm BUT not in all types of ringworm.  Your vet will supply you with cream to apply topically and in some cases – a course of tablets.

 

If your pet has lost fur and it appears in a circle, pull the outer edge of the fur, if it comes out, chances are it is ringworm. You can also check this once you have been treating your pet as mentioned above -  a few days later. IF the fungus has died the hair will no longer pull out. IF it goes untreated the ringworm will get bigger and bigger in size. Everytime the cat/dog looses fur each and every hair has spores attached to it, and will continue to infect the same animal and possibly you and your family.

 

Tiles – clean daily with a bleach formula – strong if possible. Be careful not to bleach furniture, clothing etc. Wash clothing regulary. HEAT destroys the spores, damp and wet cause them to multiply. Make use of your tumble dryer. Put it on its hottest setting and use to disinfect dry clothes, bedding etc, the heat will destroy the spores if around. You need only do this for a couple of minutes at a time. REMEMBER to clean all areas and surfaces as – spores can sit around. Clean thoroughly especially where the pet has been sleeping and sitting. Wash and put out to dry in the sun. If it is not completely dry – dry in the tumble dryer.

 

If you have a ringworm problem in your home:

Good idea to treat everything as contaminated and begin a daily clean up. Hard work but sorts the problem. No point in medicating and treating ringworm if the cause is still left lying about to reinfect.

 

If detected early – sorted early – if left unchecked - ?????????????  ask the Breeders who have been infected for how many years now????????

 

Commonly told to the public.

Ringworm affects all new born animals – false

It is easily cured – can be.

It is picked up from sand – can be

 

Places most commonly found in young pups and kittens around the mouth and the eyes, the front paws from being used to suckle.

 

Carriers of ringworm – so often over the years I have been told the mother is a carrier --??????????? That is debatable – I took over some cats years ago – from a cattery that’s partner had ringworm, problems and at that for years. The cats could not be treated on a six week course as the norm but were treated in some instances for a three month period. Once we had done all the treatments on the cats from that Cattery – no ringworm ever appeared again.

 

You will win -  keep on top of the problem – never let it get the better of you, in  your household or animals otherwise you will sit with a major problem.

 

IF you are still unsure of how to treat ringworm – if you have ringworm? Consult your vet.

BREEDERS OF ALL SIZES OF YORKSHIRE TERRIER AND BIEWER TERRIER

HOWEVER WE RARELY HAVE THE STANDARD SIZE PUPS WHICH ARE THE REAL BIG KIDS

 

*ALL OUR PUPS ARE SOLD WITH HEALTH GUARANTEES, * PUPS THAT WILL REACH A WEIGHT OF AROUND 1.4KG AS ADULT AND ABOVE, WILL LEAVE US HAVING HAD TWO INOCULATIONS.  ( THE REASON FOR THIS IS SIMPLE)

Explanation: it is unknown as to when a puppy loses it immunity it inherits from its mother dog, it could be 5 weeks, it could be 6 weeks or possibly younger or older THIS IS UNKNOWN,  pups in general are immunised at 6 weeks of age by the vet,  HOWEVER if this is done and the pup still has immunity from its mother in its body, the mothers immunity the baby carries will counteract the inoculation given which MAY result in the pup being unprotected until the next inoculation.  This is the reason when the odd pup is sold and develops PARVO or DISTEMPER in all probability this has resulted from the above.

If a  pup has been in contact with either of these diseases prior to being inoculated the pup in all probability will go down with these diseases and it will be both costly at a vet to treat and one risks the possibility of the pup passing from either of these diseases. if a pup has been in contact with either disease it is best to wait for the WINDOW period to pass before immunising the pup or if it is developing the disease and has the inoculation for the disease the pup is in fact sitting wiht a double dose which may be more difficult to overcome.

HENCE ALL OUR BIGGER PUPS THAT WE EXPECT TO REACH 1.4KG AND ABOVE, LEAVE US HAVING HAD TWO INOCULATIONS. THEY LEAVE HERE AT TEN WEEKS OF AGE.

SMALLER SIZED PUPS AS IN SMALL POCKETS WHICH TO US AS BREEDERS ARE DOGS OF AROUND 1.2KG AS ADULT, WILL BE FULLY INOCULATED PRIOR TO LEAVING US, THAT IS THREE INOCULATIONS PLUS RABIES.  THIS SIZE OF PUP LEAVES US AT 3 MONTHS OF AGE.

Breeder vs Breeder….

Good day

Three complaints by the public about being scammed and being scammed by breeders as well…. Last two days, OUCH….

I have decided to write this info down and put it on my website, to try and assist the public in choosing a BREEDER worth choosing.

  • Breeders who run their mouths off about other breeders – if this happens it should be a red flashing warning light to you.
  • Breeders who have to resort to this sort of behaviour to make sales bad mouthing everyone else, BE AWARE. Conduct such as this is in VERY BAD TASTE,
  • If you are after a small sized pup first and foremost make sure you know all about that size of pup and don’t mouth off about them being so readily available when they are NOT, that just proves that you are not too enlightened and neither is the breeder running their mouth either.
  • If your BREEDER of choice tells stories about other BREEDERS they in fact know precisely nothing about at all,  HEAR SAY,  ask them if they don’t mind to give it you in writing. Also request in writing,  If they will sell you a puppy in FIVE MINUTES TIME  that will be solid built, robust, healthy, fully inoculated and a pup that at an adult weight will be 1.2kg and at an adult age NOT claiming dogs are adult at 6 months of age, and maybe they can throw in health guarantees for good measure same as we do. Registered with a recognised registery, a QUALITY pup at that.  If they don’t well then I need say no more and trust me THEY WON’T.

If however you know of such a breeder out there somewhere that produces healthy, robust, genuine tiny sized adult dogs, i am referring to genuine teacups that are a maximum weight of 1.1kg as a healthy well built ADULT dog, sells them registered with a recognised registry,  Sells them with health guarantees, someone who also produces these small sized pups on a reasonably regular basis has proof of that for a good few years as well,  by all means let me know as I have yet to find the first one in SOUTH AFRICA.

If you are in a rush to buy a TINY don’t come to me.  You will wait as this the teacup and small pocket dog are RARE that is when they are a proper, robust solid, built teacup and the small pocket being the same. A long legged dog that is a bag of bones is not a teacup,  even if it weighs next to nothing. Make sure when weighing your dog your scale is accurate as so many dogs claiming to be of teacup weight are nowhere near teacup weight.

If you have no idea what a proper teacup or small pocket dog actually is do some research before you start shopping around. So you in fact do know the odds and the realistic expectations you should have regarding, purchasing a healthy, real tiny sized pup. Proper healthy tinies are rare and hard to find.

I don’t bad mouth the first breeder NEVER have and never will. It is first and foremost totally unprofessional. I could,  but I don’t and I hear so many complaints from the public and strangely enough it is very often the same offenders, causing issues to the public.

IF you have any issues with a breeder go back to them before you start mouthing off about them.  We will listen to you, however be honest don’t invent stuff I don’t take to liars too kindly.

If you purchase a pup and it sadly passes on, have a full body autopsy done by a Laboratory not a vet,  let the breeder prove to you the pup you purchased from them was indeed a healthy one. IF NOT ???? Next time around buy wisely insist on health guarantees.  THIS IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE WHEN PURCHASNG THE TINY SIZES.  

  • They are not sickly if bred correctly and placed in the right owners hands.
  • THEY ARE HOWEVER HANDS ON TO RAISE THE REASON OURS LEAVE US 4 MONTHS FOR TEACUPS AND 3 MONTHS FOR SMALL POCKETS AND NOT AT 8 WEEKS OF AGE.

ONCE again as I have said millions of times a genuine tiny sized pup is not suited to the majority of the public.

Thank you for your time.  Once again beware of scams as well as scammers out there and most of all breeders who sell sick pups, underaged pups and elephant sized pups as teacups and small pocket dogs AS THEY are the SCAMMERS themselves.

 

DON'T BUY ANY PUP YOU FEEL SORRY FOR, DONT BUY A PUP YOU FEEL IS UNWELL; UNLESS YOU HAVE IT IN WRITING FROM THE BREEDER CONCERNED, that  YOU WILL HAVE IT SEEN TO BY YOUR VET AND IF HE/SHE FINDS IT UNWELL, YOU WILL EXPECT TO BE REFUNDED IN FULL. DONT PURCHASE A PUP THAT IS DIRTY, FULL OF FLEAS ETC, THAT ALONE IS A RED FLASHING WARNING LIGHT, CHANCES ARE GOOD IF THE PUP, HAS OBVIOUS EXTERNAL PARASITES IT HAS INTERNAL PARASITES AS WELL.  

 

 

SCAMS  be cautious…………

I mentioned scams a very long time ago on this website, but they are still very much out there.

Only yesterday I came to hear of yet another person being scammed when they replied to an advert regarding a teacup yorkie puppy.

The story was as follows put down R5 000-00 all good, then the courier would be a further R9 000-00?????  This was from Kimberley to Gauteng. GEE whiskers some cost for a courier.

PUBLIC PLEASE BE AWARE,  THE WORD TEACUP IS ATTACHED TO SO MANY ADVERTS, THE REASON BEING FOR YOU TO BE SUCKED IN TO BUYING A SUPPOSED TEACUP SIZED PUP, easy sale, lovely sales pitch.

First and foremost the genuine teacup pup is not R2 000-00, R5 000-00 or even R8 000-00 but considerably more. Reason being a teacup pup is a very hands on pup to raise and that would include from the get-go with the breeder.  My teacup dogs are here for 4 MONTHS.  They are monitored around the clock from the day they are born.

So be wise, don’t fall for any stories about a teacup being R6 000-00 or whatever as that is not a teacup dog you are paying for but a far larger pup, alternatively could be an undernourished sickly pup, an underaged pups, it sad to say happens out there.

NO teacup pup will leave its breeder at 8 weeks of age, if the breeder is a professional breeder, the pup will remain with the breeder for weeks to come.

NO teacup pup flies from one part of SA to another at 8 weeks of age either, way too tiny and if it does fly, you can be guaranteed it once again is no teacup sized pup but a bigger pup. A genuine teacup pup at 8 weeks is so tiny that it would risk being thrown about if it was indeed sent in the cargo of any airliner.  So don’t fall for that one either.

My teacups at 4 mnths of age I refuse to fly in the cargo section of a plane. WAY TOO RISKY AND WAY TOO DANGEROUS.

I hear about all the issues every other day from the public because the public want to be able to trust and believe in whoever they are buying from.  Very few out there,  you can honestly trust in this day and age.

UNDERAGED pups, sickly pups, you name it,  OFTEN  fobbed off as teacup size. Pups riddled with internal and external parasites, once sorted by a vet grow like weeds.

Most PERSONS are not teacup owner material, huge responsibility, total dedication to own and raise the proper GENUINE tiny.  Don’t be sucked in, do your research.

First and foremost make sure you have the lifestyle to own a VERY TINY pup it is not something you buy on impulse, it is not something you want to own because you want it to be far smaller than your friends is.   At the end of the day, this is a life, If you purchase a teacup from me, be assured I have put in weeks and months of effort, love, you name it, in raising that tiny scrap of a pup. I expect the person buying it to have researched owning a mouse sized pup and dog.

Teacup dogs are like human babies, they are not a DOG as such.

So many people that contact me have no idea what a teacup dog actually is,  they just hear it in conversation amongst people. So they want one, their friends is 2kg I DON’T THINK SO SOMEHOW. IF that is the weight of the friends dog it is NO teacup dog. 

We only work with buyers for this size of dog we know are the right owners.  We only work with waiting lists, so NO teacup pup is ever sitting here waiting for an owner to drop on by.  They are reserved, sold, ordered long before they are in most cases even conceived. This is a RARE, very special size of pup.  IT does not come cheap.  OURS all carry health guarantees. They are chipped, sold on contract, they will be sterilised NO negotiating on that one.  They will be registered. They will leave here having had all their inoculations which is three inoculations plus their rabies,. Numerous dewormings etc.

I get umpteen enquiries and everyone wants one yesterday. SORRY that does not happen and I would think very long and hard in supplying someone who on the spur of the moment,  decided they just had to have a teacup pup. we do not supply any pup of any size, to any IMPULSE buyer.

 

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS:

  • Breeding teacup dogs as in a pair of a mother teacup or father teacup NO SUCH THING. GENUINE teacups are way too small to sire or produce pups if you are told the mother is a teacup be advised your breeder is talking total NONSENSE.
  • A litter of teacup pups
  • Teacups in numbers at a breeder ???? Does not happen sorry...
  • Teacups leaving the breeder at 8 weeks of age
  • Teacups needing to be bottle fed
  • Teacups needing to be syringe fed
  • Teacups that reach 1.8kg at an adult weight - in my book this is in fact a large pocket sized dog

 

The worst of it all,  if you are indeed someone who ends up with an underaged, or sickly pup that needs your vet’s constant attention, chances are almost guaranteed that pup is going to pass away. Sad to say but true. I hear of it every other day. DON’T be the next victim. A

Don’t buy a pup you cannot do right by, buy a size of pups that suits you, and your family.  You will regret buying a really small pup if you don’t have the lifestyle or don’t give your all to raise that baby.  Chances are pretty good it will end in DISASTER.

My blood runs cold when I hear I WANT THE TINIEST TEACUP YOU CAN SUPPLY ME !!!!!!!!!!!  

 

ABOVE the real deal.... this is a TEACUP at almost 9 weeks of age

she is however not for sale WAY TOO TINY.....

Good morning Joyce

Thank you for taking my call. It was a breath of fresh air chatting with you.  Discovering there are breeders who take BREEDING seriously who have a passion for what they do.

As I mentioned during our conversation.  I am one of three dog owners,  LOOKING for the ultimate tiny sized dog that we can take with us, on holiday, everywhere.  All three of us have been taken for some rather nice rides in the past.

One of my friends was scammed and I know that was stupid to even think a teacup dog was such a low price.

The other friend of mine has bought THREE dogs all were sold to her as being SMALL SIZES and not one is.

 It saddens us that this is the norm out there, that we are taken for ride upon ride and it has happened to me once, fortunately. MY tiny is all of 3kg and not a good quality dog at all. However we love her and would never dream of rehoming her and I do believe this is what some breeders bank on, a CLULESS buyer taking their word for it and buying a pup,  falling in love with it, although it is nothing remotely like you ordered from them or they told you it would be. 

I was lucky my husband would not hear of me LOOKING around for another,  especially when he knew how my two good friends had been taken, however I was over the moon recently when both my Hubby and I were on holiday and we met a lady carrying MY IDEAL DOG and she was more than happy to tell me her dog was from you as was her sisters TINY and not a seconds issue.  They got what they wanted and what they ordered.  NOW my HUBBY says I can go ahead and order my LONG WANTED TINY DOG.

The dog we have,  our tiny at 3kg sadly has to stay home with a babysitter as she is NOT small and we cannot take her with us wherever we go as was the plan in the first place.

TEACUP * TEACUP* TEACUP AND AGAIN TEACUP PUPS AND DOGS….. is this size of pup and adult dog for you??

Almost daily I get an enquiry for a teacup pup, sometimes four a day as happened this Monday past and I am not exactly sure why? MOST of the buyers contacting me are not aware of the size of a teacup to begin with? Why do they want one? Maybe because it is fashionable or it is COOL or it is what everyone else claims they own?

HOWEVER the latter part of claiming they own a teacup is questionable!!!!!  What is a teacup dog in the first place?

My take on this is the smallest dog possible and having said that GOOD HEALTH, long lived lives, healthy, happy lives – only seeing a vet for the norm, shots, sterilization and  dentals etc.

I hear a lot of very sad stories regarding people buying a TEACUP which has not been well since the day they got it, been in the vets for one to three weeks died and the vet bill is horrendous, they then have paid for a pup with NO HEALTH GUARANTEES of any kind, paid out a fortune to a vet to try save a life, the heartbreak, the emotional stress ?????????????? The financial strain.

BE CAUTIOUS where you buy a teacup pup from.  They are not the norm, they do exist, however if the breeding of them is manipulated by the breeder that is BAD NEWS. They should not be interbred neither should the parent dogs be very small dogs. If these rules are not applied or stuck to, these are the very pups that are never well, die at a young age. Often a week or three after you have taken delivery of them.

These are purely guide lines IF YOU ARE looking for the ultimate tiny dog and you have the lifestyle to own that size of pup and dog and by that I mean, you can put in the time it takes to give that tiny sized pup the love and attention it requires. This is not a pup you leave home and got to work or you put in the round the clock care, ONLY when it suits you. THIS IS A COMMITMENT YOU MAKE when you purchase this size of pup that you are in it for the long haul, you are there 24/7 and not when you feel like it. IF you cannot give your all don’t even be tempted to go that route of buying the genuine teacup.

A teacup dog in my book is an adult dog that can easily stand on a brick lengthwise with all fours.   It should not be at risk of falling off of that brick either.  It should be a solid short legged, short bodied, dog not a dog that is as light as a feather either. OURS we have bred are 550gms to 1.1kg AS AN ADULT DOG.

We have owned proper teacup dogs for the last 35 years.  We have produced them ourselves for the last twenty years. PUPS that if in the RIGHT HANDS will live very long,  happy,  healthy lives.  In the wrong hands the pup is simply not going to make it.

We sell every pup that leaves us with certain HEALTH GUARANTEES however that does not mean a buyer can do a slap dash job of caring for a mouse of a pup OR any size pup for that matter and fail and think I as the breeder will replace that pup.  IGNORANCE IS NO EXCUSE, SHOULD YOU FAIL.

WE GO all out to ensure every pup that leaves us is healthy, we give a total back up service to our clients, we do expect clients to be honest with us if they feel they want a mouse size of a dog.  IF for whatever reason a pup of ours passes away in the hands of the new owner, we will require a full body autopsy being done by a laboratory NOT a vet.   We play more than fair, we expect the owner to go all out to ensure they do right by the pup in hand.

IF HOWEVER you are not one to do what it takes, need to be out and about, partying it up etc THE TINIES are not suited to you. Consider your tiny pup to be a human baby and you won’t go far wrong. Treat it like a dog, the wheels will most certainly be wobbly and in most cases will come off.

HOWEVER I have a good few teacups out there – never having given their owner a seconds problem, because they are the right owner.

 

A teacup sized pup and adult dog is not a size of dog you find every day, far from it. Some breeders use the term teacup as a means of enticing buyers, some buyers to begin with,  have no idea what they should be looking for when enquiring about owning a teacup dog and they are told whatever they want to hear.   The first thing I ask the person enquiring about a teacup from me is what size do you expect that pup to be when an adult dog? Some have no idea, some will say I had no idea such small dogs exist, I have been told they are 1.8kg as adult, yes imagine that 1.8kg????

MOST teacup pups sold as teacup pups are NOT teacup pups in the first place. Most of those pups at young ages, a few weeks of age, already weigh what a teacup pup should weigh when it is months old.

A teacup dog is suited to very few people.   Consider the responsibility required, the work involved before rushing into buying a very small sized pup.  Do your homework, if the pup is not sold with health guarantees, insist you have a vet check it out before you go ahead with the transaction. We sell our pups with health guarantees, we always have.

IF a TEACUP??? Is being sent to you by plane at 8 weeks of age or there abouts, guaranteed it is NO TEACUP SIZED PUP but will end up considerably bigger as an adult.

PLEASE don’t come to me asking advice on a pup you have been offered by someone else. I don’t know the history to that pup, I don’t know the blood lines behind that pup, I know what goes down in my establishment NOT what goes down in other breeders establishments. There is far more to breeding a proper teacup  pup than breeding a small size pup.    IT rarely occurs that any small sized pup born is in fact a teacup pup. This is where most people get taken for a ride, it is the tiniest we have ever had and then when at the vet, it is discovered the pup is full of both external and internal parasites and once the vet has that sorted out the pup grows like crazy.

There is no breed standard for the sizing of teacups or pockets. However a teacup should be a very tiny, healthy adult dog that weighs a maximum of 1.1kg. We do have genuine teacups overseas.

Guinness World records  - To the best of my knowledge the smallest yorkie was 450gms as adult.  We have bred them as little as 550gms, dogs that have been healthy and lived for fourteen odd years. We do occasionally end up with this size of teacup HOWEVER we are cautious who that pup goes to. 

We don’t like carrots being dangled in front of our noses -  carrots are for rabbits. We are breeders whose top priority is to see that no matter what size of pup we sell,  it is the right size of pup, for the future owner.  The reason we ask the questions, it is nothing personal, it is in your best interests as well as those of the pups and MINE as the breeder that you are fully aware what it takes to raise a pup of whatever size it may be. 

We have been in this a very long time, it is not something you know in five or ten years but over many many years, experience, the reason we do what we do to ensure you get the TEACUP for example you have dreamed of owning.

A genuine teacup pup is not a cheap pup. OUR OWN LEAVE US AT FOUR MONTHS OF AGE having had all their shots plus rabies. Chipped, sterilization is not negotiable. A healthy pup operated on by a vet who is accustomed to working on small sized animals will be fine being sterilised. UNSTERILISED dogs are not healthy dog’s long term.  Every pup we have ever sold is sold strictly as a pet, not for any form of breeding, to sire or to have one litter, etc. SOLD STRICTLY AS A PET.

If you require any further information, need advice, email me and I will do my utmost to assist you if I possibly can  info@mijoy-yorkies.co.za

ALL our pups leave us fully socialized, guaranteed to have exceptional temperaments. Handled from birth NO KENNEL OR CAGE BREEDING at all.   NO teacup pup is ever here waiting for an owner they are sold strictly via a waiting list. There is no such thing as a TEACUP LITTER OF PUPS genuine teacup adults are not capable of breeding to begin with.   The majority of buyers are in fact impulse buyers, today they want a teacup yorkie,  tomorrow a chihuahua and next week a rottweiler.  We work with serious buyers who have done the research prepared to wait their turn for the ultimate dog. 

If you are urgent to purchase a pup,  we are not the right breeder for you, we never have pups in numbers waiting for buyers, we don’t believe in that, never have believed in it. We go all out for each and every pup born at MIJOY it is impossible to go to the lengths we go to for our pups,  if we have dozens at any time. 

All our pups are registered.  Chipped, sold on contract STERILISATION is not negotiable.  IF you have had a pup die on the table, very unfortunate situation to face however, there would be a reason for that, heart issue with pup? Vet not familiar with tiny sized pups? NO matter what the reason, do your research, find out if your vet is comfortable operating on a tiny dog, we have sterilized our own tinies  that have weighed 600 and 700gms without the first hitch.  Remember our dogs carry health guarantees.  We take responsibility for what we put on this earth.  We go the extra mile.  However if you don’t follow through – your problem not mine.  Every animal born deserves to end up in the right home with the right owner, we go to great lengths to ensure that happens.   THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

 

THIS INFORMATION MAY COME IN HANDY FOR THOSE WANTING THE ULTIMATE TINY DOG…. Should you hit a problem

Remember any tiny sized pup is a hands on pup, don’t think you let the wheels come off you can expect any vet, any 24 hours clinic to get the wheels back on, it rarely will happen. Once a tiny becomes hypoglycaemic which is a condition where the blood sugar drops, once that goes down, if not seen to in a short period of time NO vet is going to stop your pups from passing away, there is a point of no return with HYPOGYLCAEMIA. This is not a condition as such your pups was born with but the fact is has not eaten sufficiently in a period of time. LOW temperature is yet another reason your pup may not survive no matter how good your vet is. The minute a pup’s body temperature drops to any degree, it is at risk of dying.  The organs begin to fail. NO matter what that pup is going to pass away.

Over the years I have had the public come to me asking me to save their pup they bought from elsewhere they don’t want it to die. As I have mentioned above it is rather a tall order and something I will not get involved with. There is a VERY thin line when it comes to caring for a genuine tiny pup and often tiny pups sold off as teacup are in fact, underaged pups, or pups that have failed to thrive in the breeders establishment.

There is far more to breeding and raising a genuine teacup pup than meets the eye. It is an around the clock dedicated breeder,  to kick start the process.

WHAT IS TARTAR? IS IT BAD FOR MY DOG?

Tartar is also known as dental calculus.

It consists of hardened bacteria. This hardened bacteria, or tartar, occurs when dental plaque gets stuck on your pet’s teeth and then comes in contact with their saliva.

 So what is tartar?

 

There are two types and one of them is more harmful than the other:

1. Tartar along the gum line

This type is called supragingival (above the gum) tartar.

It is often formed on the lingual surface of the mandibular anterior teeth – the outside of the large teeth in the upper jaw.

2. Tartar between the teeth and the gingiva

This kind of tartar is more harmful and is called subgingival (below the gum) tartar.

It thrives within the sulcus (gum pockets) between the teeth and the gingiva (gum).

 

Why is tartar bad for your pet?

If not taken care of at an early stage, tartar can lead to cavities and periodontitis (also known as gum disease and pyorrhea). These are a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the gum. Tartar could discolour the teeth and lead to bad breath.

 

Fact: Once plaque hardens and forms as tartar, it’s impossible to remove with just tooth brushing.

 

How do I spot tartar?

Initially, tartar is hard to spot.  It appears grainy and porous and usually has a chalk-like white colour. As it starts to harden, tartar turns darker in colour, usually in shades of yellow and brown.

Tartar is easy to spot above the gum, but not if it’s located below the gum.  Then it might be too late when you find out about the rock-hard layer of bacteria in your pet’s mouth.

 

How do I prevent tartar?

Now that you know what tartar is, how do you get rid of it? It is impossible to remove tartar by yourself just by brushing your pet’s teeth – it is stuck onto the teeth like concrete after all.

A veterinarian can remove tartar with professional techniques such as scaling.

But you can be your pet’s hero too.  You can prevent tartar from building in the first place!  Simply brushing your pet’s teeth every day will most certainly help.

There is also another measure against tartar that not everyone knows about. 

 

PLAQUEOFF™ FOR ANIMALS

VOHC accepted, ProDen PlaqueOff Animal does not rely on topical application or friction. The product is ingested and works systemically.

 

The natural compound in the product comes out through the saliva and works to break down the bacterial biofilm that forms on the teeth and gums. This is how the natural bacteria in the mouth take hold onto the teeth and gums, colonizing and creating the oral problems of plaque and tartar, bad breathe and gingivitis. It does not change the pH of the mouth or kill off the normal levels of bacteria.

ProDen PlaqueOff has been proven to reduce plaque and tartar on the teeth and gums, depending on composition, diet and how long it has been there. It then works to prevent bad breath, plaque and tartar from returning.

Patients generally begin to see results over a 2-8 week period, and will see further benefits with continued use.

 

 

 

The URGE to own that very TINY sized dog…   18 September 2018

I believe very few people totally understand how these small sized dogs are born, bred etc.  Most people think they are out there by the dozens, a good few to choose from and that could not  be further from the truth, HEALTHY SMALL SIZED dogs are not the NORM, never have been the norm and I doubt ever will be the norm. HOWEVER, THEY DO EXIST.

i find some people feel if they have owned a hamster, no different from owning a small sized dog, COULD NOT be further from the truth.  A hamster for one is meant to be the size it is NO dog is meant to be TINY.

You get the odd breeder who does the strangest things to produce these tinies, without taking into consideration the strange stuff, they do will impact on the overall health of the pups they produce. Something like INTERBREEDING,  Mother to son, Father to daughter and so it continues, producing pups and dogs with major health issues, the new owner has to contend with the majority of that pup/dog’s life which in most cases is not very long, SHORT LIVED dogs.

Producing small sized dogs as nature intended is what most dog owners would want and it can and does happen. 

I am going to include a mail I received only this morning from a member of the public which is the NORM out there.  Often when someone contacts me saying they want another small sized dog, they have one, I immediately ask them why not go back to the breeder you got your baby (which is now an adult dog) from??? The story is almost always the same, it has been the ONLY one they have ever produced or at the time they sold it to me, I bought it we had no idea it would turn out to be small and that too happens to me.  There are no golden rules, GROWTH charts, well those are not the best way to gauge any future adult mass of any pup, unless, the pup is born at a certain weight, and sticks within the weight limits every single week however, this alone is not GUARANTEED, the pup must be disease free, no internal parasites at all eg. worms, must eat properly from the get go and be fed properly. This story of they only drink form the mother till they are UMPTEEN weeks of age, is HOGWASH.

I have even had the public come to me advising me that they bought a pup that has been bottle fed, the breeder guarantees it is tiny. ANYONE buying a pup that needs to be bottle fed is crazy.  The mere fact it has to be fed tells one very big story, one I would keep well away from.  No matter how tiny any pup is it should eat and eat very well and the tinier the pup, the more frequent that pup should eat and that would be around the clock.

Anyone buys a pup and is told feed twice or three times daily this is NO SMALL future adult weight dog.

I am also inundated with the public advising me of a pup they can buy from someone out there, pup weighed x at birth now weighs Y what do I think? Firstly I cannot comment on anyone else’s pup.  So much goes into the raising of a pup from birth.

  • How many pups in the litter?
  • Did the pup get a fair share of mother’s milk?
  • At what age did this pup begin to eat?
  • Any set-backs of any kind this pup experienced? If so that alone will impact on the overall indication of the pup’s future adult weight.

We produce pups from NORMAL weight adult females and smaller males but not mice sized males, as those are not suited to any form of breeding.

We get pups that from day one are born at a certain weight, every single week from birth reach the goal weight, they reach all goals, we expect them to reach as a certain sized pup for a future certain sized, adult weight dog.

You do get the exception where the pup is born at a pretty high weight, as it goes along the dogs weekly expected weight gain drops significantly but selling a pup like this to the public is questionable as it may decide to have a growth spurt along the way and end up more to the indicated adult weight at birth,  than the going along week by week process.  So it is first and foremost very important to go with a breeder who does have some insight into the smaller sized dogs, don’t go on “hearsay either”, they should be able to show you what they breed, etc,  not necessarily their own dogs, but the people out there who own their dogs.

You must be able to trust the breeder of your choice,  we all make mistakes this is a process that is not easy by any stretch of the imagination,  but over the years you learn more and more.

NO really small sized pup should be leaving the breeder at 8 weeks of age. Many years back we used to do that when the new owner was pushy etc, however we have not sold tinies in years at that age.  OUR genuine teacups leave us at FOUR MONTHS of age.  Fully inoculated, health guarantees, microchipped, registration to follow etc. Sold strictly on a spay/neuter contract. Every pup of ours irrespective of the size will be sold as a PET on a contract. We have never sold the first pup for any form of breeding ever.

Every single pup we have bred for the best part of the last twenty plus years leaves here MICRO CHIPPED. This way that pup and ultimate adult dog will be identifiable.

We only sell our pups as PETS, not for any form of breeding. We will only see a GENUINE teacup pup to a qualified buyer.

Looking to purchase a proper SMALL sized pup takes time, we do not breed by the dozen, we do however pride ourselves in what we do breed and sell are guaranteed to be fully socialised, NO CAGE breeding, guaranteed to have an exceptional temperament, are quality, well cared for babies you can adopt and enjoy for many years to come.  If you want a small sized dog as in YESTERDAY don’t contact me, I will not be able to assist you. 

This is a specialised size dog small sizes are not the norm so be patient if this is what you are looking for.

I attach two photos of dogs of mine I used to take out to the Malls I frequented two plus years ago, I did this for many years,  however the attention they caused became a security risk to the MALLS and we were asked not to return with our four legged friends.

These dogs are all adult dogs, the heaviest weight is 1.2kg and the least weight 600gms.  First and foremost HEALTHY and solid built, robust dogs.

Sorry the pic with the shopping trolley is not the best, but it gives a very good indication of just how small these dogs are when they are in the well- known, small plastic PICNIC basket.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.....

 

Please be advsied it is a lot of peoples dream to own a small sized dog, but there are certain issues to take into consideration, before opting to purchase a TINY or SMALL sized pup.  THey are not suited to KENNELLING, they are not suited to staying in at a veterinary clinic, they pine, become distraught.  The most important condition of them all, ensure you want this size of dog for the right reasons.... They are not suited to the majortiy of dog owners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEACUPS the real info behind a GENUINE TEACUP pup…..

I get inundated with enquiries for teacups, people wanting another teacup, I always enquire as to the weight of their current teacup, I am amazed to hear they are 1.8kg , 2.2kg etc and this has been sold to them as a teacup and they honestly believe it is a teacup.

I just had a lady call me saying that it is so hard for the public as they don’t know the full story as to what a teacup pup should weigh, look like etc, so most are conned.

The adverts for micro- teacup, teacup etc, be cautious…. First and foremost a huge amount goes into the raising of any PROPER teacup pup so it is a pricey pup. However be cautious of that,  as I hear from a lot of folk out there who have paid the big bucks and the pup is still no teacup.

OR sad to say paid big bucks and the pup is in the vet clinic for a week or three and passes away and that is really big  bucks then.

FORGET SUCH THINGS AS GROWTH CHARTS EXIST…….. this is where most people have an issue, it is not guaranteed that a pup born at any particular weight will be the weight that growth chart indicates at birth, as an adult dog.  This depends on so many factors, that if you had to know them all, you would come to realise very few pups reach that expected weight goal as was predicted from their birth weight..

What is your idea of a teacup weight dog and work according to that.? People come to me for a pup and say TEACUP I ask what weight do you consider a teacup pup and when they find out just how small they are and can be they are in shock. NO idea such sized dogs exist. 

However be cautious, if you have any doubt get it in writing from the breeder of your choice, that you will have that pup to a vet, if for whatever reason the vet does not okay it as a healthy, robust  and a TINY pup you will be returning it for a full refund. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, so many vets are not too familiar with what size a teacup pup is supposed to be but most know that a rather fair sized pup is NO TEACUP pup.

 

 

Why do I suggest this is done? SIMPLE as one particular breeder was selling very under aged pups as teacup and every one of those pups and I knew of three incidents, where the pup was hospitalised, day’s later dead pup. This is a life at the end of the day, how can anyone be so heartless and cruel?

We have come a very long way when it comes to the teacup pup, owning my first one over thirty years ago.  They are rare, they are NEVER available in numbers so the minute you are told by a breeder I have so many sitting here, be assured they are not a teacup dog to begin with.

It is not easy to raise a proper teacup pup it is hard work, dedication and a labour of love, it is total commitment by the breeder.  A proper teacup pup will eat far more frequently and at a far earlier age than any other size of pup. So when you are told to feed twice daily or even three times daily and NO night feeds, you can be assured the pup is NO TEACUP pup.

Our teacups are here for four months.  They carry health guarantees they leave us being fully inoculated. Chipped, sold on a contract to be sterilised. they will be registered.

This is a RARE size of dog, weighing anything from 550gms to 1.1kg as adult and at these weights, solid short legged, short bodied, robust HEALTHY babies.

This is no pup to take lightly, hands on, huge responsibility, no spur of the moment impulse urge to own this size of dog. This is NO fashion statement.

We only supply qualified owners who are on a waiting list with us. This size of dog is NEVER here waiting for an owner. 

In the right hands, this pup and ultimate adult dog, will live, many long, happy, healthy and fun filled years with its owner and family. I say RIGHT HANDS as this pup needs to be in a home where its needs and the responsibility of owning it, is taken seriously.  Buyers such as these do exist, we supply those folk,  this size of baby.  This is not parlour grooming material nor is it boarding kennel material.  THIS IS A BABY IN THE HOME.

Our thanks once again to ROGZ Pet Insurance for this valuable pet aid advice when it comes to BURNS and your dog.

 

Burns: First Aid for Pets

Few injuries in pets are as traumatic, painful and disfiguring as a burn. Burns are injuries that result from exposure to flame or extreme heat, chemical or electrical trauma, and inhalation of smoke or noxious fumes. Most burns that pets receive come from a hot surface, appliance or substance found in and around the home. Often it takes time for the extent of the damage to be fully realised. Burns produce syndromes ranging from self-limiting injury to devastating long term incapacitation and potentially death. Both the temperature and the duration of exposure contribute to the degree of thermal injury.

Burns are generally placed into one of three categories:

  • First degree. Superficial partial thickness wounds involving only the top layer of the skin. The symptoms are generally limited to minor pain and redness. An example would be mild sunburn. These burns heal quickly and generally don’t require extra care.
  • Second degree. Deep partial thickness wounds involving the deep layers of the skin. These burns are more painful, introduce a risk of infection, take longer to heal and require veterinary attention.
  • Third degree. Full thickness wounds involving complete destruction of all skin layers. These burns are the most dangerous and life-threatening and required immediate and extensive veterinary care.

Sunburn develops in pets that are exposed to sunlight for an extended period of time. It typically occurs on naturally hairless areas such as the tips of the ears and nose; or if the pet’s coat has been trimmed too short, exposing the skin to the sun. This type of burn is usually first degree. It is painful but generally not life-threatening and resolve quickly. Chronic exposure to sun can lead to various types of skin cancer so must be avoided or sunscreen must be applied to exposed skin.

Electrical burns are most commonly found in the mouth as a result of the animal chewing on an electric cord. The lips, gums, tongue and palate may be involved. These burns are usually second degree and do result in tissue erosion and necrosis. Dogs are more often affected.

Diagnosing a burn is usually straight forward if the event is observed.

Burns that are not observed or are malicious in nature are more difficult to diagnose as most burns develop over time as tissue damage sets in and the lesions spread. In almost every case, a pet that has suffered a burn should be evaluated by your veterinarian. It is critically important that the effect the burn has on the animal’s overall health be assessed. Besides the burn itself, the pet may develop an electrolyte imbalance, kidney failure, anaemia and a systemic infection. The extent, location and percentage of the pet’s body involved in the burn all play a role in assessing and evaluating the long term outlook for the pet.

Prevention is always better than treatment so as far as possible limit your pet’s exposure to direct sunlight, flames, household appliances and electrical cords, chemicals and smoke.

If exposure occurs:

  • Extinguish all flames. If electricity is involved, make sure the power is turned off.
  • Avoid being bitten. Even the most loving of pets will bite when painful or afraid. You may have to muzzle your pet.
  • Make sure the area is well ventilated.
  • Apply cool water compresses with a clean cloth. Change the compress frequently and keep the site cool and wet. The area affected can also be submerged in cool water. This may prevent the burn from penetrating deeper into the tissues.
  • If the burn is from a dry chemical, brush away as much of the substance as possible. Be sure to protect the mouth, nose and eyes of you and your pet. Wash the contaminated area with large amounts of warm (not hot) water. Protect yourself with appropraite safety equipment. If the chemical has gotten into the pet’s eyes, flush with clean water for 15-20 minutes.
  • Do not break any blisters that have formed.
  • Do not apply any ointments or butter-like substances.
  • Do not apply ice to the burn.
  • Carefully transport the animal to your veterinarian. 

 

 

   

 

                               


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A cruel, unnecessary – and illegal – practice

We humans don’t have the copyright on body language: dogs use their tails for communication. A tail that is wagging quickly indicates a happy, friendly dog, whilst a tail that is being wagged stiffly slowly and deliberately indicates a warning that a dog is feeling threatened or unhappy, and that he may bite or attack. 

All of which calls into question the archaic, barbaric and illegal but continuing practice of tail docking. Further research suggests that when dogs feel stress, they tend to wag their tails to the left as a reflection of what’s happening in the brain. Activation of the left-brain causes the tail to wag to the right, activation of the right brain produced a way to the left.

The research shows that dogs wag to the right side when they encounter something pleasant.  When they see something threatening, for example, a strange dog exhibiting dominant behaviours, they wag more to the left side.  These results suggest that dogs notice another dogs tail wagging and use the information to decide whether the dog with the wagging tail is friend or foe. The researchers concluded that dogs aren’t intentionally sending signals with their tails, but rather the tail wagging is a consequence of the inner working of the canine brain. Tail wagging behaviour results from the way in which different emotional signals activate different parts of a dog’s brain. WIthout a tail, a dog cannot communicate his emotions or intentions, making it more difficult for people and other dogs to know how a dog is likely to react in in a certain situation and may even lead to an increase in dog fights. Tails also assist with agility and balance.

Tail docking is the amputation of a dog’s tail at varying lengths to suit the recommendations of a breed standard. Coking involved the amputation of the puppy’s tail with a scalpel. Sometimes, rubber bands are used, although this method has never been used by veterinarians.  The cut goes through the skin, cartilage and bone. This procedure is usually performed without any anaesthetic or with a local anaesthetic at three to five days of age.  A small number of dogs are born naturally without a tail.

Tail docking, even if performed with local anaesthesia, causes pain and stress to young puppies. Recent research in pain management indicates clearly that puppies, even at a few day s of age have a full developed nervous system and a well-developed sense of pain. Sometimes, tail docking, results in serious complications such as bleeding. Infection and even the death of the puppy.

Tail docking does not provide any benefit to puppies. Traditionally, some breeders considered a docked tail necessary to fulfil the working functions of the dog. Today many working breeds are kept as house pets and only a small percentage are used for field work, which is a recreational activity for people and not an essential function. If dogs of breeds that are customarily docked are left with intact tails, they are not more likely to get tail injuries than dogs of other breeds. If a procedure that causes pain has no immediate or future benefit for the animal and may lead to complications, surely it is unnecessary and should not be performed?

Tail docking is a procedure that is carried out because people believe that that is how that dog should “look” so it merely satisfies a breed standard or a human notion of what that type of dog should look like.

Some owners say that a dog with a long tail causes problems by knocking down ornaments in the house – well try rearranging your décor.   OR don’t keep such a big dog.

The SA Veterinary Council does not condone the routine of tail docking of puppies for cosmetic purposed by veterinarians. Any veterinarian who docks a tail “unless for justifiable medical reasons”, will be liable for prosecution under the Animal Protections Aca (APA) NO 71 of 1962.

Veterinarians found guilty under this act will automatically be investigated for unprofessional conduct by the SAVC under the Veterinary and Para-Veterinary  Professions Act 1982.



SINCE THE REMOVAL OF THE TAIL OF A DOG OR PUPPY RESULTS IN PERMANENT LOSS OF (I.E.DAMAGE TO) A BODY PART, THE PROCEDURE OF REMOVING A HEALTHY TAILS IS CONSIDERED A FORM OF MAIMING.



 

Lay people are also liable to prosecution under the APA if maiming can be proved. This falls under the ambit of welfare organisations.

The NSPCA is opposed to the unnecessary mutilation of animals for cosmetic, sporting, entertainment or convenience purposes – including but not limited to tail-docking, ear-cropping, de-barking, de-clawing, and myotomy (cutting of muscle).

The NSPCA takes the identical standpoint relating to the various surgical mutilations of other species. It has long been the opinion of the NSPCA that tail docking (as well as any other form of mutilation) is a contravention of the Animal Protection Act Clause 2(1)a which states:

“Any person who overloads, overdrives, overrides, ill-treats, neglects, infuriates, tortures or maims or cruelly beats, kicks goads or terrifies any animal…… shall subject to the provisions of this Act and any other law, be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to  a fine …..  “Since the removal of the tail or a dog or puppy results in permanent loss of (i.e. damage to) a body part, the procedure of removing a healthy tails is considered a form of maiming.

According to the Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA) none of their breed standards say that a dog’s tail must be cropped, but they rather say “tail customarily docked” or “tail traditionally docked”.

Dog owners may show their dogs with or without cropped tails.

Smallholders are encouraged not to buy puppies without tails and to insist that the breeder from whom they buy their dogs does not dock tails.

There‘s no antidote for Xylitol toxicity.

However, quick diagnosis and treatment by your veterinarian can help reverse the toxic effects.  If you suspect your dog has ingested Xylitol you should contact your veterinarian immediately as prompt treatment is important. The prognosis is good for dogs who are treated before symptoms develop or for dogs who develop uncomplicated hypoglycemia that is reversed rapidly.

If liver failure or a bleeding disorder develops, the prognosis is generally poor. Most dogs who develop liver problems never make it.

 

Signs of Xylitol Poisoning…

Symptoms may include:

  • lack of energy or weakness
  • coordination problems
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • tremors
  • possibly seizures

Even very small amounts of Xylitol can cause symptoms such as seizures and liver failure, so be extremely vigilant when feeding your pet anything

Please read the ingredients labels of ANYTHING you feed your pets.  Some foods that are safe for humans are toxic to pets – Xylitol is one of those ingredients.

We recommend storing foodstuffs made with Xylitol in a dog proof location; our canine friends love a delicious cupcakes just as much as we do!lab-stealing-biscuits

Hi to Puppy buyers out there...

Yesterday i received a phone call from a somewhat distraught buyer who had firstly been scammed as above, secondly been sold an inferior quality pup, that lasted for all of THREE weeks being at a vet most of those three weeks.

What can you do to protect yourself against unscrupulous breeders, scammers out there.

  • Be cautious of the free ads,  they are not always what they appear to be.  
  • If the breeder has their own website, that would be an advantage but be cautious as well as if it is a FREE WEBSITE design your own for FREE you could be dealing with a scammer
  • Remember you get what you pay for.  Sad to say some people pay out thousands and end up with a pet that is first and foremost inferior quality but if that is not bad enough, it is at the vet most of the rest of its life - sad to say happenign more and more frequently

PLEASE remember breeders who breed quality pups cannot afford to sell them for peanuts, as they have paid to buy breeding stock of quality first and foremost.  Go all out to sell quality healthy pups.  To breed and breed properly COSTS the breeder money. NOTHING cheap about breeding and breeding properly, meaning parent dogs fed teh best, get the best, always up to date fully inoculated, HENCE no parvo or distemper can possibly develop in their offspring PROVIDED the pups are immunised correctly.  

 

BE CAUTIOUS of adverts that read from registered parents..

  • if indeed the parents are registered, there is no reason the pups cannot be registered
  • Pups that are registered may not be good quality either, it depends. REMEMBER registering bodies are purely that, registering bodies, they dont get to see the pups, they would not necessarily know a good pup from a bad one. They rely purely on the integrity of the breeder that all pups they register are the breed they are claimed to be.
  • Be cautious of the word IMPORTED being thrown around as well. It would depend from who a dog was imported and what quality of dog was imported. A fair amount of dogs imported into SA were GIVEN away as being sub-standard.  this happened basically with BIEWER TERRIERS
  • ANOTHER TERM THROWN AROUND SOMEWHAT LOOSELY IS TEACUP SIZES PUPS  this should signal WARNING 

 

HOW DO YOU KNOW THE PUP YOU INTEND BUYING IS INDEED GOING TO BE A SMALL SIZED ADULT...

​Some pointers to consider

  • All small sized pups have small NOSES ?? How would anyone know in the first place what was a small or large sized nose???
  • One thing i can tell you,  smaller sized future adult dogs as pups, ears will all be erect with NO assistance from tape.  This is a very obvious sign your pup is goint to end up a small adult size but htere again how small is small, as not all small pups, are teacup size, not in the least. the pup you view or own has ears that are down, NO SMALL SIZED future adult dog and if your dogs ears are permanently down irresepctive the size the dog is not of good quality.  OR your dog has way too much fur on its ears pulling them down.  
  • Teacups as we refer to ours as being the GENUINE teacup as everyone and their AUNTIE claims to breed teacups are not suited to most people. They are sold at a hefty price simply because they are major hands on to raise by the breeder, if born at teacup weight and remain teacup weight throughout. 
  • You get the odd pup that is born bigger and may end up considerably smaller that happens to us as well, but those pups BORN bigger that end up smaller are far easier to raise than the genuine teacup pup is.
  • No teacup adult dog is suited to breeding, they are way too small.  Your advert reads mother is teacup??? RUN IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION.
  • The teacup dog has a very bad name out there, reason being the way SOME have attempted to produce them and failed miserably. the only way to produce GENUINE TEACUP pups is as nature intended with NO manipulation of any kind by the breeder. the reason we sell all our pups teacups included with HEALTH GUARANTEES.

 

OUR TEACUPS ARE SOLD TO APPROVED BUYERS ONLY - THEY ARE THE CHILD IN THE HOUSE, THEY LEAVE HERE AT FOUR MONTHS OF AGE THEY WILL BE FULLY INOCULATED AND THAT INCLUDES RABIES. THEY WILL BE MICRO CHIPPED. THEY WILL BE REGISTERED. THEY WILL BE STERILISED BY THE NEW OWNER AS PER THE CONTRACT SIGNED AT TIME OF HANDING OVER.  THERE ARE CERTAIN TERMS AND CONDITIONS WE SELL ALL OUR PUPS WITH.

ALL CARRY HEALTH GUARANTEES. WE GUARANTEE NO PUP LEAVES US, BEING AT RISK OF DEVELOPING PARVO OR DISTEMPER. NO PUP LEAVES US WITH ANY SKIN DISEASE

WE GO THAT EXTRA MILE, WE ARE ULTRA FUSSY ABOUT THE BABIES WE SELL AND VERY STRICT WITH WHERE ARE PUPS END UP GOING TO.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

TEACUP MANIA - TEACUP - TEACUP -TEACUP

know THE facts...........

 

Sorry maybe difficult to see but two out and out angels in their LARGE carrier which doubles as a playpen which keeps them 100% safe

 

Photographed above 2 GENUINE TEACUP pups 3 and 4 months of age

WE ‘R’ THE GENUINE T’CUP PUP

Producing T CUPS for 20 years breeding yorkies for in excess of 30 years

Teacups bred as nature intended NOT INTERBRED

We sell with HEALTH GUARANTEES always have

We work with WAITING LISTS only!!!!!!!!!!

We don’t farm with dogs, and we are not a PUPPY MILL,

 we NEVER have pups in  LARGE quantities

 

TIP for buyers out there wanting the small sized pups

  • THEIR EARS ARE PRICKED FROM THE START (MEANING up)
  • Ears that require taping to stand erect are NOT small sized pups
  • Pups with ears that are down are not small sized pups UNLESS they have been major  ill then this may be the case. It would then be advised to keep well clear. 
  • Be cautious don’t become another victim
  • WHAT IS A TEACUP DOG? In my language a healthy robust pup that is a maximum weight of 1.1kg as adult, with NO HEALTH ISSUES
  • A miniature is not a small sized dog

Our teacups we have bred have been as little as 550gms as an adult weight and HEALTHY living for 12 and 14 years with NO health issues

ENSURE YOU ARE SUITED TO OWNING, THE VERY TINY SIZED PUP AND DOG,

WE WILL NOT SELL TO ANYONE WE FEEL DOES NOT MEET THE CRITERIA REQUIRED, TO OWN AND RAISE THIS SIZE OF PUP

JUST A NOTE OF APPRECIATION Hello Joyce, I just had a read through your website and was so impressed with everything you said. I have been 'preaching' tiny-yorkie etiquette to people for many years. My pet (no pun intended) hate was and still is, those people who used to come up to me while walking with my doggie (1,5kg) and asking where I 'got" it because they want one for their kids. Then I have to explain that a tiny yorkie is not a plaything for small kids and that they should really get a bigger doggie for kids to play with. Anyway, I have tears in my eyes, missing my little Emily so much seeing all the look-a-likes in your gallery . One day I will have another tiny yorkie and I will most certainly put my name on your waiting list. R.I.P Emily (2001 - 2016)

 

SO PLEASED TO RECEIVE THIS EMAIL AND BE ABLE TO POST IT HERE.  I have been trying to educate the public regarding the owning of the teacup pup for the last twenty years.   I am not only referring to the size YVETTE  refers to above but the REAL DEAL GENUINE HEALTHY TEACUP pup and dog that the majority of folks have not seen in real life.   An adult dog of anything in weight from 550gms and up.

Most breeders  have never bred one or owned one.  There are certain DO's and DONT's one adheres to when owning this size of pup. it is not for everyone.  This size of pup out there has a very bad  reputation as a result of people buying them that dont know how to handle them, being sold them by breeders that have no idea how to handle them or raise them, hence the reason i am inundated with SAD STORIES regarding what went down when 

small pups were purchased by the public who did not realise what it took to raise a tiny sized pup, thr huge responsibiity it is.

If you are looking to own or purchase a very small sized pups do the research on what can go wrong and how quick it can go wrong.

We only sell or add people to our waiting list we feel are suited to own this dog.  

  • firstly what is most important is BUYING a proper healthy pup and not an underaged pup or sickly pup
  • once you have the real deal, knowing how to handle it
  • so many people dont realise what goes into owning a tiny 

THE PROPER TINY PUP SHOULD NOT LEAVE ITS BREEDER FOR AT LEAST THREE MONTHS IF NOT FOUR MONTHS, DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE TEACUP

i could and i may very well add some emails from the public on what they have been through TRYING to buy the teacup pup.  The vet bills incurred, the loss of a precious life anythign from day one to three weeks later....  

 

Teacups pups are not for children, teenagers or students

Owned the GENUINE teacup dog for the last thirty plus years, no overnight sensation,

and no figment of the imagination either

WE 'R' THE TEACUP YORKIE

LIVE FOR TWELVE TO FOURTEEN YEARS WITH NO HEALTH ISSUES

HOWEVER THIS IS IF THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT HANDS TO BEGIN WITH,

VERY FEW PEOPLE FIT THE BILL TO OWN A GENUINE TEACUP

THEY ARE NOT FASHION STATEMENTS OR COOL TO OWN

THIS IS A LIFE...

 

 

 

 

We are in the process of redoing this website thank you for your patience.

 

 

The URGE to own that very TINY sized dog…   18 September 2018

 

I believe very few people totally understand how these small sized dogs are born, bred etc.  Most people think they are out there by the dozens, a good few to choose from and that could not  be further from the truth, HEALTHY SMALL SIZED dogs are not the NORM, never have been the norm and I doubt ever will be the norm. HOWEVER, THEY DO EXIST.

You get the odd breeder who does the strangest things to produce these tinies, without taking into consideration the strange stuff they do will impact on the overall health of the pups they produce. Something like INTERBREEDING,  Mother to son, Father to daughter and so it continues, producing pups and dogs with major health issues, the new owner has to contend with the majority of that pup/dog’s life which in most cases is not very long, SHORT LIVED dogs.

Producing small sized dogs as nature intended is what most dog owners would want and it can and does happen. 

I am going to include a mail I received only this morning from a member of the public which is the NORM out there.  Often when someone contacts me saying they want another small sized dog, they have one, I immediately ask them why not go back to the breeder you got your baby (which is now an adult dog) from??? The story is almost always the same, it has been the ONLY one they have ever produced or at the time they sold it to me, I bought it we had no idea it would turn out to be small and that too happens to me.  There are no golden rules, GROWTH charts, well those are not the best way to gauge any future adult mass of any pup, unless, the pup is born at a certain weight, and sticks within the weight limits every single week however, this alone is not GUARANTEED, the pup must be disease free, no internal parasites at all eg. worms, must eat properly from the get go and be fed properly. This story of they only drink form the mother till they are UMPTEEN weeks of age, is HOGWASH.

I have even had the public come to me advising me that they bought a pup that has been bottle fed, the breeder guarantees it is tiny. ANYONE buying a pup that needs to be bottle fed is crazy.  The mere fact it has to be fed tells one very big story, one I would keep well away from.  No matter how tiny any pup is it should eat and eat very well and the tinier the pup, the more frequent that pup should eat and that would be around the clock.

Anyone buys a pup and is told feed twice or three times daily this is NO SMALL future adult weight dog.

I am also inundated with the public advising me of a pup they can buy from someone out there, pup weighed x at birth now weighs Y what do I think? Firstly I cannot comment on anyone else’s pup.  So much goes into the raising of a pup from birth.

  • How many pups in the litter?
  • Did the pup get a fair share of mother’s milk?
  • At what age did this pup begin to eat?
  • Any set-backs of any kind this pup experienced? If so that alone will impact on the overall indication of the pup’s future adult weight.

We produce pups from NORMAL weight adult females and smaller males but not mice sized males, as those are not suited to any form of breeding.

We get pups that from day one are born at a certain weight, every single week from birth reach the goal weight, they reach all goals, we expect them to reach as a certain sized pup for a future certain sized, adult weight dog.

You do get the exception where the pup is born at a pretty high weight, as it goes along the dogs weekly expected weight gain drops significantly but selling a pup like this to the public is questionable as it may decide to have a growth spurt along the way and end up more to the indicated adult weight at birth,  than the going along week by week process.  So it is first and foremost very important to go with a breeder who does have some insight into the smaller sized dogs, don’t go on “hearsay either”, they should be able to show you what they breed, etc,  not necessarily their own dogs, but the people out there who own their dogs.

You must be able to trust the breeder of your choice,  we all make mistakes this is a process that is not easy by any stretch of the imagination,  but over the years you learn more and more.

NO really small sized pup should be leaving the breeder at 8 weeks of age. Many years back we used to do that when the new owner was pushy etc, however we have not sold tinies in years at that age.  OUR genuine teacups leave us at FOUR MONTHS of age.  Fully inoculated, health guarantees, microchipped, registration to follow etc. Sold strictly on a spay/neuter contract. Every pup of ours irrespective of the size will be sold as a PET on a contract. We have never sold the first pup for any form of breeding ever.

Every single pup we have bred for the best part of the last twenty plus years leaves here MICRO CHIPPED. This way that pup and ultimate adult dog will be identifiable.

We only sell our pups as PETS, not for any form of breeding. We will only see a GENUINE teacup pup to a qualified buyer.

Looking to purchase a proper SMALL sized pup takes time, we do not breed by the dozen, we do however pride ourselves in what we do breed and sell are guaranteed to be fully socialised, NO CAGE breeding, guaranteed to have an exceptional temperament, are quality, well cared for babies you can adopt and enjoy for many years to come.  If you want a small sized dog as in YESTERDAY don’t contact me, I will not be able to assist you. 

This is a specialised size dog small sizes are not the norm so be patient if this is what you are looking for.

Cooper was supposed to be the same small little guy and he got bigger not that i mind he stays my little boy. 

I have been looking like crazy for another small baby like Milo, and Sunday at the shops i found someone with a little girl just like my milo and she was such a beauty and lovable. I then asked the question, where did you guys find her and she came from you guys.

So this is me, emailing for info regarding your babies. 

I have been looking for a while so i can wait.

I may not like it but hey like i said i have been waiting.

I was about to buy a baby that weighs now 445g on 7 weeks not sure how the weight thing works. 

I bought  Milo and Cooper and got lucky i guess with Milo.

Anyway talking too much, and can’t wait for your response.

Oh and on the note, i attached some photos. And yes that’s them on holiday as if they can’t go witb then i just won’t go.

Chanelle.

Subject: TEA CUP YORKIES

 

Good morning.

Hope you are well. I would like to find out if you have any teacup pups available for purchase.  If not how do I go about ordering a pup from you. 

I have been pining around and been told some stories that concern me. Stuff like all small sized yorkies don’t live long, they are nothing but trouble, ill health all the time.

I got your contact details from someone a good few years ago but at that time I was not in a position to own a really small dog, however now I am.

If you cannot help me can you advise me of other breeders,  or can you tell me what I look out for, as I know someone who worked with me a couple of years back who has five yorkies, every time she buys one she is told it is a teacup or small pocket and they are all BIG dogs.  I don’t want that experience,  I live in a town house she is in a house, I cannot afford to make the mistake of buying dogs in numbers hoping I get that very small one I have wanted for so long.

Please I am one of many wanting to own a small sized yorkie, can you possibly not share on your website what we should be looking out for. I don’t want to risk buying BIG. I can only own one dog and it has to be the right small size. 

Please come back to me at your earliest convenience.

 

Warm regards

Katie

 

 

UPDATE

AUGUST 11  2019

I am going to add some mails I have received in recent times, all about buying TINIES 

However.  if you are told that it is the norm to have issues with the teacup or small sized dog -  THINK LONG AND HARD - TOTAL NONSENSE.

A properly bred tiny pup that is meant to be tiny from the get-go and BRED CORRECTLY and that is the most important thing of all, that they are bred correctly as Nature intended, not manipulated by a breeder to be produced as this is where the issues arise. Breeders who repeatedly INTERBREED their dogs to obtain TINIES to sell to the public, and then the public land in the soup.

The issue with interbreeding is as follows - any bad traits or health issues in a particular dog are doubled up on when INTERBRED, mother to son, daughter to Father quite sickening actually.  over many years i have met members of the public who tell me so and so breeds these and they are all interbred resulting in them being WEAK, SICKLY pups and dogs and if they reach the DOG stage as most live very short lives. they tell ME this is normal for the tinies, i can tell them itmost certainly is not normal for the tinies at all. I have had genuine teacups live 12 and 14 years with no ill health. however my tinies are bred properly.

if i lived another two lifetimes i could never supply the demand i get for my pups. if you are impatient dont come to me, i cannot supply a dog of this sort of size as in yesterday.  I have waiting lists. i get referrals and repeat business all the time.

Recently i got to chat with a couple who bought a yorkie pup that was missing a dens, never born with a dens. NOW ON MY WAITING LIST.  They told me i had never heard of a DENS i actually had to look that up on the internet.  IT is a part of the neck.  They purchased this pup and in excess of forty thousand rand later in vet bills, a SPECIALIST realised what the issue was.  The reason for this INTERBREEDING de luxe.  There are not too many people out there prepared to spend ths type of money or even could spend this type of money if they wanted to, to try and HELP a pup they purchased as a teacup size dog.  ANYONE wanting the details of these folk are welcome to contact me. 

Years back i had another member of the public wanting a pup from me that would reach 1.2kg in weight.  She then cancelled as had been offered one by a reasonably well known breeder.  The pup would be 1.2kg as adult.  She was over the moon with excitement.  However she applied REVOLUTION to the pup which is quite normal,  some folk use it as a preventative measure against ticks and fleas.  The pup had a bad reaction.   

She ended up going back to the manufacturers and giving them a piece of her mind after this happened a second time to her with this pup.  They wrote back to her and as she had CC'd me in on the mail, i got the reply as well. I have known this lady for a good many years, the reason she told me about this pup and what was going on.  They replied the manufacturers that is, saying to the owner, chances were good the dog had a liver issue,  to have that checked out.  Well of course owner did not believe that for a second. However in time she came to realise this pup had ISSUES.  Extensive testing later the pup was diagnosed of having a liver shunt.  So began the struggle that lasted a couple of years when eventually the dog lost her life to living with LIVER SHUNT.

She went back to the breeder and was told to stop harassing her as she was pregnant.!!!!!!!!!!!!!  R250 000-00 odd later the dog passed away, this particular owner had done everythign possible to save this girl and just by the way the supposed 1.2kg adult weight dog was a 2,5kg adult dog. i too can put you in touch with this lady if you would like to chat with her.  READ UP INFO ON LIVER SHUNT FURTHER DOWN.

Since that time she has purchased two dogs from me and her son a dog of mine. If she had purchased a pup from myself that was diagnosed with liver shunt i would have done somethigng about it and not pushed it aside. ALL OUR PUPS  CARRY HEALTH GUARANTEES for the first year of their lives. ALL OUR PUPS.

In recent times i have heard of one breeder advising a member of the public not to TOUCH a teacup dog. This breeder has a rather short memory as some 12 or so years ago maybe thirteen or so,  she sold someone i knew a TEACUP pup that was no teacup sized pup at all. She even sent the mother dog home with the pup to the new owner??? My dogs would not be too happy if i did that to them.  HELLO does this sound familiar to you???

Another BREEDER who has been around forever sold me a TEACUP pup some 25 years back.  I had to sign on the dotted line if anythign was wrong with that pup that i would have no recourse to her.  Well the pup was not even inoculated, this is yet again another BREEDER who today mouths off about how bad teacup pups are, HELLO are you reading this, remember the thousands i paid you for a PUP WITH NO SKULL.   I took her to the vet to be incoulated, at which time the vet pointed out to me the pup had NO SKULL.  NO point in immunising her she could not live end of story,.  Trust me fascinated me to read how TODAY she goes off about teacup dogs. i should in fact phone her up and remind her of the THOUSANDS i paid that day for a pup that could not live.

Large open fontanels BEWARE however this poor baby did not even have a skull!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  You purcahse a pup with a large open gontanel your dog is in danger ....

PLEASE be aware, you as an owner of a tiny must know what you are doing in the first place.  A proper tiny is not for most people,  i say proper as if you buy underaged pups fobbed off as teacups,  this wont end well, this is yet another thing that not you or any vet can do the first thing about. in 99% of instances this pup is not long for this world.

Years back a lady came to me for a teacup pup. she had one that lasted five years but always at a vet. she then bought another that lasted five minutes. She then joined a waiting list with me - however in that time just before i had a baby for her she purchased one from a breeder. Phoned me to tell me,  so my immediate reqaction was congratulations, so you want to cancell with me?  NO came the reply as i dont believe this pup is going to make it.  So she said she would be in touch.  Some days later at the vet every day sometimes twice a day, i got the call, pup had passed away.  ???  i could not quite believe my ears. the pup was diagnosed as being far younger than she was led to believe.

This was not an isolated case.  i got to hear of three such cases from buyers in the JOBURG area around the same time.  Since that time she has had a teacup of mine, is now in ENGLAND and the teacup is 3 years and six months of age WITH NO HEALTH ISSUES whatsoever.

IF anything goes wrong with a baby we sell no matter the size of the pup, we want a full body autopsy done at a LABORATORY not from a vet, a LABORATORY so we know exactly what went down.  so if anything happens to a pup of yours do the same. IF you have proof of the pup being born with a serious health condition your breeder should step up to the plate. HOWEVER i have learnt over many years not to hold my breath when it comes to this as most WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU OR THEIR DEAD OR SICK PUP.  It has happened to me a few times with BREEDERS and happened to a good few hundred members of the public who contacted me over a good many years.  

A healthy tiny that has been bred and raised correctly is not cheap but look at the alternative, you can pay R8 000-00 for a pup that is sold as a teacup that is not bred correctly, not raised correctly costs the new owner twenty to thirty thousand in vet bills and then it dies, what is cheap about that?  i get it often, i have lost the pup all my money??? What has that got to do with me? i can sympathise and i do and i am happy to chat with people who have been conned, abused emotionally destroyed when trying to buy a teacup pup. MORE than happy to chat with them but i did not bring this on them.  I try and warn so many people but they are in a rush...

i get told all the sad stories and i can sympathise but it strangely enough is the same offenders who pop up time and time again having sold SICKLY or underaged pups to the public.

One NOW client of mine, purchased a TEACUP pup from Port Elizabeth it was flown to Durban not well three weeks later it was dead thirty thousand rand vet bill later.  Vet believed the dog to have had a liver shunt.  I asked the owner why did they not send the entire body into the laboratory then they would have known, no point, breeder firstly chatted then was VERY OFF, then BLOCKED them???????????    Firstly NO genuine teacup pup could fly at under eight weeks of age as it would be very tiny.  However this pup was flown at under 8 weeks of age because of convenience sake from the sellers side???? I can give you details of this unfortunate person as well.

It is all well and good to blame the breeder and in some cases they are in the wrong but in a lot of cases the owner did not do right by the pup. NOT for any other reason than they did not know,  what it took to raise that pup.  However it does not matter how good a vet is or how good you are with a pup if you sit with a small sickly pup or very underaged pup the best of us, will not save that life.

 

The story is as such: 

according to some out there

You buy a small sized pup you  must know they are short lived, have issues, etc. TOTAL nonsense. the only time a small sized pup is going to have issues is when it is not bred properly, is underaged to what it was sold as, or the new owner has not got the foggiest idea how to handle the pup.

There are certain things that will kill a pup if not sorted in record time which has nothing whatsoever to do with the breeder but the new owner. We enlighten all our prospective buyers on what it takes to raise a proper tiny pup and most will back off from buying one, while others are hell bent on owning a mouse of a pup even if they dont have the ability, the lifestyle  to raise it properly.  So often it is what the future owners wants, how cool it is to have this mouse of a dog or pup in your hand.  They dont take into consideration what it takes to raise that mouse of a pup.  Some 15 years back i listened to people who claimed they knew it all, NO MORE.   Seven years ago i sold a real tiny to folk who were clients of my vet at that time.  They had somethign like 6 yorkies one of which was mine but a bigger dog, their smallest they owned,  but never sold as a teacup. Once they saw my teacups they had to have one. They had it less than a day when i took it back,they had let the pup lose so much body temperature OUR vet, both theirs and mine advised me i would never turn the pup around it was giong to die.HOWEVER THIS VERY SAME PUP GOT A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH FROM OUR VET THE PREVIOUS DAY.  Some 8 days later after i gave my all to try and save this pup it passed on. i am still waiting for these people to pay the vet bills as they promised to. I took that pup daily to the vet for both their and my sake and the pups sake. Autopsy cleared the pup as being totally healthy.  WRONG OWNERS. My vet being their vet asked me what possessed me to sell them such a small pup??? They would never cope and CLEARLY THEY DID NOT COPE.

There is way much more to buying a small pup and owning one, way much more, if you dont know what you are doing, dont sitck to the rules you in all probabilty will lose that pup.  

I monitor GENUINE healthy teacup pups here around the clock that is the NORM.  if you dont get told to feed your pup throughout the night or you can leave your pup unattended throughout the night, one of two things is the case, your pups is NO TEACUP sized pup or if it is,   you may awake to a dead pup.

I speak from experience having owned my first teacup YORKSHIRE TERRIER at the age of 21 and i am now a Granny.

Over the years when i have met up with breeders, they have said they breed small but my dogs give new meaning to the word small.  Last week i was asked by a member of the public to please put it out there - TO WARN THE PUBLIC OF THE PITFALLS OF OWNING A TINY DOG THAT IS NOT BRED PROPERLY.  sold off as teacup but far younger. In fact another person phoned me telling me she had jus seen one that the breeder claimed was seven weeks of age and she beleived it not to be a day older than 4 weeks of age.???  

 

TO BE CONTINUED.....

 

 

ARTICLE OF THE MONTH:  I AM POSTING THIS AGAIN AS REQUESTED BY A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC. WROTE THIS A GOOD FEW YEARS BACK.

Ringworm –

Worm infestation??? Or fungal infection????

 

This article has been written in an attempt to help folk who have no knowledge or experience with this problem. We are not vets and therefore you should consider this article as written by a layman with experience on hand. AT no stage should you not consider seeing your Vet if you are unsure of your diagnosis and treatment.

 

If you have never seen ringworm or had an animal infected or been infected yourself LUCKY YOU………

 

Ringworm as so often thought – is NO worm infestation  BUT a fungal infection of the skin. NOT the easiest to get rid of, and highly contagious to young, sickly and the old. ????????

 

I have always had a very healthy respect for ringworm, knowing full well what can happen if left untreated and again left for any length of time.

It spells one thing DISASTER……

 

The first time I heard the word RINGWORM  I was a youngster and at the time we owned a Boxer dog, who we put into a boarding kennel when we went on our holiday. On our return the boxer was sporting a lovely ringworm on her chest. MY Dad said washing blue would solve the problem and it did. Ricketts washing blue – cubed still available today. Moisten and apply regularly. The ringworm will be killed and disappear and the hair will in time grow back. (Old wives tail -? Not in this case – it does work)

 

What IS RINGWORM:  a fungus that attacks the skin – fine - In an animal the animal irrespective of specie the fur comes out in a circle. This circle can be perfectly clear it can be very crusty in appearance. Each and every hair follicle that the animal looses carries spores – fungal spores. These in turn will infect the same animal, other animals, humans and can be dropped in places and remain for years to come, and be contagious for a lengthy period of time – years in fact.

 

I was a cat breeder for many years and RINGWORM to me was Bad NEWS.

You have multiple animals and if you are not aware of the problem when you look again it has spread, and trust me no fun.

 

I will explain to you how to treat ringworm in a once off case, how to treat ringworm if you have multiple animals infected and so forth.

 

SADLY numerous breeders of both pedigreed dogs and cats sit with this problem, some for years and years. They do nothing about it, because at this stage it is totally out of control , will cost a fortune to treat and is also very time consuming to treat correctly and a daily chore. NO rush job when it comes to major ringworm infection.

 

I have in the past been unfortunate to pick it up on the very odd occasion but irradicate it as quick as it has been diagnosed. I had the misfortune of Persian cats getting it on the odd occasion when I bred and showed cats some years back. I also know what it took for me to eradicate the problem when I picked it up once from a cat show, and then unknowingly groomed some 40 odd Persians on a weekly basis. HELLO all of a sudden I had a problem.

 

I attach an article I wrote for another website sometime back when a few yorkie breeders who have vast quantities of dogs, hit a problem. HOWEVER, I heard months later – they still had the problem – as I said big bucks to sort and hard, hard work, NO quick cure. To sell animals be it cats, dogs Yorkies whatever, knowing full well you have a ringworm problem in your kennel/cattery is criminal – especially with it being highly contagious to humans and other animals, This sadly persists even today with some breeders out there, who knowingly have the problem.

 

IF you see ringworm on your pet/s?

Do not rush out and buy an anti-fungal shampoo and bath everything in site – bad move.

By all means rush out and buy an anti-fungal shampoo, use it on the lesions only- do not dilute, rub it into the lesion and leave it on. Do it repeatedly, two to three times daily. Wash your own hands thoroughly as well. Never touch anything after handling an infected animal without washing your hands.

Halt all grooming of your animals and bathing especially – you think you are doing the right thing but you are more than likely spreading the problem. Remember to keep an eye out, if you are treating one lesion that does not mean new one’s will not appear. If the animal uses a paw to scratch the infected area – good idea to rub the anti-fungal shampoo on that paw.

 

Diagnosing ringworm. Your vet has an ultraviolet lamp which in most cases will flures ringworm BUT not in all types of ringworm.  Your vet will supply you with cream to apply topically and in some cases – a course of tablets.

 

If your pet has lost fur and it appears in a circle, pull the outer edge of the fur, if it comes out, chances are it is ringworm. You can also check this once you have been treating your pet as mentioned above -  a few days later. IF the fungus has died the hair will no longer pull out. IF it goes untreated the ringworm will get bigger and bigger in size. Everytime the cat/dog looses fur each and every hair has spores attached to it, and will continue to infect the same animal and possibly you and your family.

 

Tiles – clean daily with a bleach formula – strong if possible. Be careful not to bleach furniture, clothing etc. Wash clothing regulary. HEAT destroys the spores, damp and wet cause them to multiply. Make use of your tumble dryer. Put it on its hottest setting and use to disinfect dry clothes, bedding etc, the heat will destroy the spores if around. You need only do this for a couple of minutes at a time. REMEMBER to clean all areas and surfaces as – spores can sit around. Clean thoroughly especially where the pet has been sleeping and sitting. Wash and put out to dry in the sun. If it is not completely dry – dry in the tumble dryer.

 

If you have a ringworm problem in your home:

Good idea to treat everything as contaminated and begin a daily clean up. Hard work but sorts the problem. No point in medicating and treating ringworm if the cause is still left lying about to reinfect.

 

If detected early – sorted early – if left unchecked - ?????????????  ask the Breeders who have been infected for how many years now????????

 

Commonly told to the public.

Ringworm affects all new born animals – false

It is easily cured – can be.

It is picked up from sand – can be

 

Places most commonly found in young pups and kittens around the mouth and the eyes, the front paws from being used to suckle.

 

Carriers of ringworm – so often over the years I have been told the mother is a carrier --??????????? That is debatable – I took over some cats years ago – from a cattery that’s partner had ringworm, problems and at that for years. The cats could not be treated on a six week course as the norm but were treated in some instances for a three month period. Once we had done all the treatments on the cats from that Cattery – no ringworm ever appeared again.

 

You will win -  keep on top of the problem – never let it get the better of you, in  your household or animals otherwise you will sit with a major problem.

 

IF you are still unsure of how to treat ringworm – if you have ringworm? Consult your vet.

BREEDERS OF ALL SIZES OF YORKSHIRE TERRIER AND BIEWER TERRIER

HOWEVER WE RARELY HAVE THE STANDARD SIZE PUPS WHICH ARE THE REAL BIG KIDS

 

*ALL OUR PUPS ARE SOLD WITH HEALTH GUARANTEES, * PUPS THAT WILL REACH A WEIGHT OF AROUND 1.4KG AS ADULT AND ABOVE, WILL LEAVE US HAVING HAD TWO INOCULATIONS.  ( THE REASON FOR THIS IS SIMPLE)

Explanation: it is unknown as to when a puppy loses it immunity it inherits from its mother dog, it could be 5 weeks, it could be 6 weeks or possibly younger or older THIS IS UNKNOWN,  pups in general are immunised at 6 weeks of age by the vet,  HOWEVER if this is done and the pup still has immunity from its mother in its body, the mothers immunity the baby carries will counteract the inoculation given which MAY result in the pup being unprotected until the next inoculation.  This is the reason when the odd pup is sold and develops PARVO or DISTEMPER in all probability this has resulted from the above.

If a  pup has been in contact with either of these diseases prior to being inoculated the pup in all probability will go down with these diseases and it will be both costly at a vet to treat and one risks the possibility of the pup passing from either of these diseases. if a pup has been in contact with either disease it is best to wait for the WINDOW period to pass before immunising the pup or if it is developing the disease and has the inoculation for the disease the pup is in fact sitting wiht a double dose which may be more difficult to overcome.

HENCE ALL OUR BIGGER PUPS THAT WE EXPECT TO REACH 1.4KG AND ABOVE, LEAVE US HAVING HAD TWO INOCULATIONS. THEY LEAVE HERE AT TEN WEEKS OF AGE.

SMALLER SIZED PUPS AS IN SMALL POCKETS WHICH TO US AS BREEDERS ARE DOGS OF AROUND 1.2KG AS ADULT, WILL BE FULLY INOCULATED PRIOR TO LEAVING US, THAT IS THREE INOCULATIONS PLUS RABIES.  THIS SIZE OF PUP LEAVES US AT 3 MONTHS OF AGE.

All our pups are micro chipped, sold with a contract sterilisation not negotiable.  They will carry health guarantees. No pup leaves her with any skin condition, or any dog or puppy disease be it obvious at the time or incubating the disease.

Breeder vs Breeder….

Good day

Three complaints by the public about being scammed and being scammed by breeders as well…. Last two days, OUCH….

I have decided to write this info down and put it on my website, to try and assist the public in choosing a BREEDER worth choosing.

  • Breeders who run their mouths off about other breeders – if this happens it should be a red flashing warning light to you.
  • Breeders who have to resort to this sort of behaviour to make sales bad mouthing everyone else, BE AWARE. Conduct such as this is in VERY BAD TASTE,
  • If you are after a small sized pup first and foremost make sure you know all about that size of pup and don’t mouth off about them being so readily available when they are NOT, that just proves that you are not too enlightened and neither is the breeder running their mouth either.
  • If your BREEDER of choice tells stories about other BREEDERS they in fact know precisely nothing about at all,  HEAR SAY,  ask them if they don’t mind to give it you in writing. Also request in writing,  If they will sell you a puppy in FIVE MINUTES TIME  that will be solid built, robust, healthy, fully inoculated and a pup that at an adult weight will be 1.2kg and at an adult age NOT claiming dogs are adult at 6 months of age, and maybe they can throw in health guarantees for good measure same as we do. Registered with a recognised registery, a QUALITY pup at that.  If they don’t well then I need say no more and trust me THEY WON’T.

If however you know of such a breeder out there somewhere that produces healthy, robust, genuine tiny sized adult dogs, i am referring to genuine teacups that are a maximum weight of 1.1kg as a healthy well built ADULT dog, sells them registered with a recognised registry,  Sells them with health guarantees, someone who also produces these small sized pups on a reasonably regular basis has proof of that for a good few years as well,  by all means let me know as I have yet to find the first one in SOUTH AFRICA.

If you are in a rush to buy a TINY don’t come to me.  You will wait as this the teacup and small pocket dog are RARE that is when they are a proper, robust solid, built teacup and the small pocket being the same. A long legged dog that is a bag of bones is not a teacup,  even if it weighs next to nothing. Make sure when weighing your dog your scale is accurate as so many dogs claiming to be of teacup weight are nowhere near teacup weight.

If you have no idea what a proper teacup or small pocket dog actually is do some research before you start shopping around. So you in fact do know the odds and the realistic expectations you should have regarding, purchasing a healthy, real tiny sized pup. Proper healthy tinies are rare and hard to find.

I don’t bad mouth the first breeder NEVER have and never will. It is first and foremost totally unprofessional. I could,  but I don’t and I hear so many complaints from the public and strangely enough it is very often the same offenders, causing issues to the public.

IF you have any issues with a breeder go back to them before you start mouthing off about them.  We will listen to you, however be honest don’t invent stuff I don’t take to liars too kindly.

If you purchase a pup and it sadly passes on, have a full body autopsy done by a Laboratory not a vet,  let the breeder prove to you the pup you purchased from them was indeed a healthy one. IF NOT ???? Next time around buy wisely insist on health guarantees.  THIS IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE WHEN PURCHASNG THE TINY SIZES.  

  • They are not sickly if bred correctly and placed in the right owners hands.
  • THEY ARE HOWEVER HANDS ON TO RAISE THE REASON OURS LEAVE US 4 MONTHS FOR TEACUPS AND 3 MONTHS FOR SMALL POCKETS AND NOT AT 8 WEEKS OF AGE.

ONCE again as I have said millions of times a genuine tiny sized pup is not suited to the majority of the public.

Thank you for your time.  Once again beware of scams as well as scammers out there and most of all breeders who sell sick pups, underaged pups and elephant sized pups as teacups and small pocket dogs AS THEY are the SCAMMERS themselves.

 

DON'T BUY ANY PUP YOU FEEL SORRY FOR, DONT BUY A PUP YOU FEEL IS UNWELL; UNLESS YOU HAVE IT IN WRITING FROM THE BREEDER CONCERNED, that  YOU WILL HAVE IT SEEN TO BY YOUR VET AND IF HE/SHE FINDS IT UNWELL, YOU WILL EXPECT TO BE REFUNDED IN FULL. DONT PURCHASE A PUP THAT IS DIRTY, FULL OF FLEAS ETC, THAT ALONE IS A RED FLASHING WARNING LIGHT, CHANCES ARE GOOD IF THE PUP, HAS OBVIOUS EXTERNAL PARASITES IT HAS INTERNAL PARASITES AS WELL.  

 

 

SCAMS  be cautious…………

I mentioned scams a very long time ago on this website, but they are still very much out there.

Only yesterday I came to hear of yet another person being scammed when they replied to an advert regarding a teacup yorkie puppy.

The story was as follows put down R5 000-00 all good, then the courier would be a further R9 000-00?????  This was from Kimberley to Gauteng. GEE whiskers some cost for a courier.

PUBLIC PLEASE BE AWARE,  THE WORD TEACUP IS ATTACHED TO SO MANY ADVERTS, THE REASON BEING FOR YOU TO BE SUCKED IN TO BUYING A SUPPOSED TEACUP SIZED PUP, easy sale, lovely sales pitch.

First and foremost the genuine teacup pup is not R2 000-00, R5 000-00 or even R8 000-00 but considerably more. Reason being a teacup pup is a very hands on pup to raise and that would include from the get-go with the breeder.  My teacup dogs are here for 4 MONTHS.  They are monitored around the clock from the day they are born.

So be wise, don’t fall for any stories about a teacup being R6 000-00 or whatever as that is not a teacup dog you are paying for but a far larger pup, alternatively could be an undernourished sickly pup, an underaged pups, it sad to say happens out there.

NO teacup pup will leave its breeder at 8 weeks of age, if the breeder is a professional breeder, the pup will remain with the breeder for weeks to come.

NO teacup pup flies from one part of SA to another at 8 weeks of age either, way too tiny and if it does fly, you can be guaranteed it once again is no teacup sized pup but a bigger pup. A genuine teacup pup at 8 weeks is so tiny that it would risk being thrown about if it was indeed sent in the cargo of any airliner.  So don’t fall for that one either.

My teacups at 4 mnths of age I refuse to fly in the cargo section of a plane. WAY TOO RISKY AND WAY TOO DANGEROUS.

I hear about all the issues every other day from the public because the public want to be able to trust and believe in whoever they are buying from.  Very few out there,  you can honestly trust in this day and age.

UNDERAGED pups, sickly pups, you name it,  OFTEN  fobbed off as teacup size. Pups riddled with internal and external parasites, once sorted by a vet grow like weeds.

Most PERSONS are not teacup owner material, huge responsibility, total dedication to own and raise the proper GENUINE tiny.  Don’t be sucked in, do your research.

First and foremost make sure you have the lifestyle to own a VERY TINY pup it is not something you buy on impulse, it is not something you want to own because you want it to be far smaller than your friends is.   At the end of the day, this is a life, If you purchase a teacup from me, be assured I have put in weeks and months of effort, love, you name it, in raising that tiny scrap of a pup. I expect the person buying it to have researched owning a mouse sized pup and dog.

Teacup dogs are like human babies, they are not a DOG as such.

So many people that contact me have no idea what a teacup dog actually is,  they just hear it in conversation amongst people. So they want one, their friends is 2kg I DON’T THINK SO SOMEHOW. IF that is the weight of the friends dog it is NO teacup dog. 

We only work with buyers for this size of dog we know are the right owners.  We only work with waiting lists, so NO teacup pup is ever sitting here waiting for an owner to drop on by.  They are reserved, sold, ordered long before they are in most cases even conceived. This is a RARE, very special size of pup.  IT does not come cheap.  OURS all carry health guarantees. They are chipped, sold on contract, they will be sterilised NO negotiating on that one.  They will be registered. They will leave here having had all their inoculations which is three inoculations plus their rabies,. Numerous dewormings etc.

I get umpteen enquiries and everyone wants one yesterday. SORRY that does not happen and I would think very long and hard in supplying someone who on the spur of the moment,  decided they just had to have a teacup pup. we do not supply any pup of any size, to any IMPULSE buyer.

 

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS:

  • Breeding teacup dogs as in a pair of a mother teacup or father teacup NO SUCH THING. GENUINE teacups are way too small to sire or produce pups if you are told the mother is a teacup be advised your breeder is talking total NONSENSE.
  • A litter of teacup pups
  • Teacups in numbers at a breeder ???? Does not happen sorry...
  • Teacups leaving the breeder at 8 weeks of age
  • Teacups needing to be bottle fed
  • Teacups needing to be syringe fed
  • Teacups that reach 1.8kg at an adult weight - in my book this is in fact a large pocket sized dog

 

The worst of it all,  if you are indeed someone who ends up with an underaged, or sickly pup that needs your vet’s constant attention, chances are almost guaranteed that pup is going to pass away. Sad to say but true. I hear of it every other day. DON’T be the next victim. A

Don’t buy a pup you cannot do right by, buy a size of pups that suits you, and your family.  You will regret buying a really small pup if you don’t have the lifestyle or don’t give your all to raise that baby.  Chances are pretty good it will end in DISASTER.

My blood runs cold when I hear I WANT THE TINIEST TEACUP YOU CAN SUPPLY ME !!!!!!!!!!!  

 

ABOVE the real deal.... this is a TEACUP at almost 9 weeks of age

she is however not for sale WAY TOO TINY.....

Good morning Joyce

Thank you for taking my call. It was a breath of fresh air chatting with you.  Discovering there are breeders who take BREEDING seriously who have a passion for what they do.

As I mentioned during our conversation.  I am one of three dog owners,  LOOKING for the ultimate tiny sized dog that we can take with us, on holiday, everywhere.  All three of us have been taken for some rather nice rides in the past.

One of my friends was scammed and I know that was stupid to even think a teacup dog was such a low price.

The other friend of mine has bought THREE dogs all were sold to her as being SMALL SIZES and not one is.

 It saddens us that this is the norm out there, that we are taken for ride upon ride and it has happened to me once, fortunately. MY tiny is all of 3kg and not a good quality dog at all. However we love her and would never dream of rehoming her and I do believe this is what some breeders bank on, a CLULESS buyer taking their word for it and buying a pup,  falling in love with it, although it is nothing remotely like you ordered from them or they told you it would be. 

I was lucky my husband would not hear of me LOOKING around for another,  especially when he knew how my two good friends had been taken, however I was over the moon recently when both my Hubby and I were on holiday and we met a lady carrying MY IDEAL DOG and she was more than happy to tell me her dog was from you as was her sisters TINY and not a seconds issue.  They got what they wanted and what they ordered.  NOW my HUBBY says I can go ahead and order my LONG WANTED TINY DOG.

The dog we have,  our tiny at 3kg sadly has to stay home with a babysitter as she is NOT small and we cannot take her with us wherever we go as was the plan in the first place.

 

Thank you for making my day.

Best regards

Lucy

TEACUP * TEACUP* TEACUP AND AGAIN TEACUP PUPS AND DOGS….. is this size of pup and adult dog for you??

Almost daily I get an enquiry for a teacup pup, sometimes four a day as happened this Monday past and I am not exactly sure why? MOST of the buyers contacting me are not aware of the size of a teacup to begin with? Why do they want one? Maybe because it is fashionable or it is COOL or it is what everyone else claims they own?

HOWEVER the latter part of claiming they own a teacup is questionable!!!!!  What is a teacup dog in the first place?

My take on this is the smallest dog possible and having said that GOOD HEALTH, long lived lives, healthy, happy lives – only seeing a vet for the norm, shots, sterilization and  dentals etc.

I hear a lot of very sad stories regarding people buying a TEACUP which has not been well since the day they got it, been in the vets for one to three weeks died and the vet bill is horrendous, they then have paid for a pup with NO HEALTH GUARANTEES of any kind, paid out a fortune to a vet to try save a life, the heartbreak, the emotional stress ?????????????? The financial strain.

BE CAUTIOUS where you buy a teacup pup from.  They are not the norm, they do exist, however if the breeding of them is manipulated by the breeder that is BAD NEWS. They should not be interbred neither should the parent dogs be very small dogs. If these rules are not applied or stuck to, these are the very pups that are never well, die at a young age. Often a week or three after you have taken delivery of them.

These are purely guide lines IF YOU ARE looking for the ultimate tiny dog and you have the lifestyle to own that size of pup and dog and by that I mean, you can put in the time it takes to give that tiny sized pup the love and attention it requires. This is not a pup you leave home and got to work or you put in the round the clock care, ONLY when it suits you. THIS IS A COMMITMENT YOU MAKE when you purchase this size of pup that you are in it for the long haul, you are there 24/7 and not when you feel like it. IF you cannot give your all don’t even be tempted to go that route of buying the genuine teacup.

A teacup dog in my book is an adult dog that can easily stand on a brick lengthwise with all fours.   It should not be at risk of falling off of that brick either.  It should be a solid short legged, short bodied, dog not a dog that is as light as a feather either. OURS we have bred are 550gms to 1.1kg AS AN ADULT DOG.

We have owned proper teacup dogs for the last 35 years.  We have produced them ourselves for the last twenty years. PUPS that if in the RIGHT HANDS will live very long,  happy,  healthy lives.  In the wrong hands the pup is simply not going to make it.

We sell every pup that leaves us with certain HEALTH GUARANTEES however that does not mean a buyer can do a slap dash job of caring for a mouse of a pup OR any size pup for that matter and fail and think I as the breeder will replace that pup.  IGNORANCE IS NO EXCUSE, SHOULD YOU FAIL.

WE GO all out to ensure every pup that leaves us is healthy, we give a total back up service to our clients, we do expect clients to be honest with us if they feel they want a mouse size of a dog.  IF for whatever reason a pup of ours passes away in the hands of the new owner, we will require a full body autopsy being done by a laboratory NOT a vet.   We play more than fair, we expect the owner to go all out to ensure they do right by the pup in hand.

IF HOWEVER you are not one to do what it takes, need to be out and about, partying it up etc THE TINIES are not suited to you. Consider your tiny pup to be a human baby and you won’t go far wrong. Treat it like a dog, the wheels will most certainly be wobbly and in most cases will come off.

HOWEVER I have a good few teacups out there – never having given their owner a seconds problem, because they are the right owner.

 

A teacup sized pup and adult dog is not a size of dog you find every day, far from it. Some breeders use the term teacup as a means of enticing buyers, some buyers to begin with,  have no idea what they should be looking for when enquiring about owning a teacup dog and they are told whatever they want to hear.   The first thing I ask the person enquiring about a teacup from me is what size do you expect that pup to be when an adult dog? Some have no idea, some will say I had no idea such small dogs exist, I have been told they are 1.8kg as adult, yes imagine that 1.8kg????

MOST teacup pups sold as teacup pups are NOT teacup pups in the first place. Most of those pups at young ages, a few weeks of age, already weigh what a teacup pup should weigh when it is months old.

A teacup dog is suited to very few people.   Consider the responsibility required, the work involved before rushing into buying a very small sized pup.  Do your homework, if the pup is not sold with health guarantees, insist you have a vet check it out before you go ahead with the transaction. We sell our pups with health guarantees, we always have.

IF a TEACUP??? Is being sent to you by plane at 8 weeks of age or there abouts, guaranteed it is NO TEACUP SIZED PUP but will end up considerably bigger as an adult.

PLEASE don’t come to me asking advice on a pup you have been offered by someone else. I don’t know the history to that pup, I don’t know the blood lines behind that pup, I know what goes down in my establishment NOT what goes down in other breeders establishments. There is far more to breeding a proper teacup  pup than breeding a small size pup.    IT rarely occurs that any small sized pup born is in fact a teacup pup. This is where most people get taken for a ride, it is the tiniest we have ever had and then when at the vet, it is discovered the pup is full of both external and internal parasites and once the vet has that sorted out the pup grows like crazy.

There is no breed standard for the sizing of teacups or pockets. However a teacup should be a very tiny, healthy adult dog that weighs a maximum of 1.1kg. We do have genuine teacups overseas.

Guinness World records  - To the best of my knowledge the smallest yorkie was 450gms as adult.  We have bred them as little as 550gms, dogs that have been healthy and lived for fourteen odd years. We do occasionally end up with this size of teacup HOWEVER we are cautious who that pup goes to. 

We don’t like carrots being dangled in front of our noses -  carrots are for rabbits. We are breeders whose top priority is to see that no matter what size of pup we sell,  it is the right size of pup, for the future owner.  The reason we ask the questions, it is nothing personal, it is in your best interests as well as those of the pups and MINE as the breeder that you are fully aware what it takes to raise a pup of whatever size it may be. 

We have been in this a very long time, it is not something you know in five or ten years but over many many years, experience, the reason we do what we do to ensure you get the TEACUP for example you have dreamed of owning.

A genuine teacup pup is not a cheap pup. OUR OWN LEAVE US AT FOUR MONTHS OF AGE having had all their shots plus rabies. Chipped, sterilization is not negotiable. A healthy pup operated on by a vet who is accustomed to working on small sized animals will be fine being sterilised. UNSTERILISED dogs are not healthy dog’s long term.  Every pup we have ever sold is sold strictly as a pet, not for any form of breeding, to sire or to have one litter, etc. SOLD STRICTLY AS A PET.

If you require any further information, need advice, email me and I will do my utmost to assist you if I possibly can  info@mijoy-yorkies.co.za

ALL our pups leave us fully socialized, guaranteed to have exceptional temperaments. Handled from birth NO KENNEL OR CAGE BREEDING at all.   NO teacup pup is ever here waiting for an owner they are sold strictly via a waiting list. There is no such thing as a TEACUP LITTER OF PUPS genuine teacup adults are not capable of breeding to begin with.   The majority of buyers are in fact impulse buyers, today they want a teacup yorkie,  tomorrow a chihuahua and next week a rottweiler.  We work with serious buyers who have done the research prepared to wait their turn for the ultimate dog. 

If you are urgent to purchase a pup,  we are not the right breeder for you, we never have pups in numbers waiting for buyers, we don’t believe in that, never have believed in it. We go all out for each and every pup born at MIJOY it is impossible to go to the lengths we go to for our pups,  if we have dozens at any time. 

All our pups are registered.  Chipped, sold on contract STERILISATION is not negotiable.  IF you have had a pup die on the table, very unfortunate situation to face however, there would be a reason for that, heart issue with pup? Vet not familiar with tiny sized pups? NO matter what the reason, do your research, find out if your vet is comfortable operating on a tiny dog, we have sterilized our own tinies  that have weighed 600 and 700gms without the first hitch.  Remember our dogs carry health guarantees.  We take responsibility for what we put on this earth.  We go the extra mile.  However if you don’t follow through – your problem not mine.  Every animal born deserves to end up in the right home with the right owner, we go to great lengths to ensure that happens.   THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

 

THIS INFORMATION MAY COME IN HANDY FOR THOSE WANTING THE ULTIMATE TINY DOG…. Should you hit a problem

Remember any tiny sized pup is a hands on pup, don’t think you let the wheels come off you can expect any vet, any 24 hours clinic to get the wheels back on, it rarely will happen. Once a tiny becomes hypoglycaemic which is a condition where the blood sugar drops, once that goes down, if not seen to in a short period of time NO vet is going to stop your pups from passing away, there is a point of no return with HYPOGYLCAEMIA. This is not a condition as such your pups was born with but the fact is has not eaten sufficiently in a period of time. LOW temperature is yet another reason your pup may not survive no matter how good your vet is. The minute a pup’s body temperature drops to any degree, it is at risk of dying.  The organs begin to fail. NO matter what that pup is going to pass away.

Over the years I have had the public come to me asking me to save their pup they bought from elsewhere they don’t want it to die. As I have mentioned above it is rather a tall order and something I will not get involved with. There is a VERY thin line when it comes to caring for a genuine tiny pup and often tiny pups sold off as teacup are in fact, underaged pups, or pups that have failed to thrive in the breeders establishment.

There is far more to breeding and raising a genuine teacup pup than meets the eye. It is an around the clock dedicated breeder,  to kick start the process.

WHAT IS TARTAR? IS IT BAD FOR MY DOG?

Tartar is also known as dental calculus.

It consists of hardened bacteria. This hardened bacteria, or tartar, occurs when dental plaque gets stuck on your pet’s teeth and then comes in contact with their saliva.

 So what is tartar?

 

There are two types and one of them is more harmful than the other:

1. Tartar along the gum line

This type is called supragingival (above the gum) tartar.

It is often formed on the lingual surface of the mandibular anterior teeth – the outside of the large teeth in the upper jaw.

2. Tartar between the teeth and the gingiva

This kind of tartar is more harmful and is called subgingival (below the gum) tartar.

It thrives within the sulcus (gum pockets) between the teeth and the gingiva (gum).

 

Why is tartar bad for your pet?

If not taken care of at an early stage, tartar can lead to cavities and periodontitis (also known as gum disease and pyorrhea). These are a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the gum. Tartar could discolour the teeth and lead to bad breath.

 

Fact: Once plaque hardens and forms as tartar, it’s impossible to remove with just tooth brushing.

 

How do I spot tartar?

Initially, tartar is hard to spot.  It appears grainy and porous and usually has a chalk-like white colour. As it starts to harden, tartar turns darker in colour, usually in shades of yellow and brown.

Tartar is easy to spot above the gum, but not if it’s located below the gum.  Then it might be too late when you find out about the rock-hard layer of bacteria in your pet’s mouth.

 

How do I prevent tartar?

Now that you know what tartar is, how do you get rid of it? It is impossible to remove tartar by yourself just by brushing your pet’s teeth – it is stuck onto the teeth like concrete after all.

A veterinarian can remove tartar with professional techniques such as scaling.

But you can be your pet’s hero too.  You can prevent tartar from building in the first place!  Simply brushing your pet’s teeth every day will most certainly help.

There is also another measure against tartar that not everyone knows about. 

 

PLAQUEOFF™ FOR ANIMALS

VOHC accepted, ProDen PlaqueOff Animal does not rely on topical application or friction. The product is ingested and works systemically.

 

The natural compound in the product comes out through the saliva and works to break down the bacterial biofilm that forms on the teeth and gums. This is how the natural bacteria in the mouth take hold onto the teeth and gums, colonizing and creating the oral problems of plaque and tartar, bad breathe and gingivitis. It does not change the pH of the mouth or kill off the normal levels of bacteria.

ProDen PlaqueOff has been proven to reduce plaque and tartar on the teeth and gums, depending on composition, diet and how long it has been there. It then works to prevent bad breath, plaque and tartar from returning.

Patients generally begin to see results over a 2-8 week period, and will see further benefits with continued use.

 

 

 

The URGE to own that very TINY sized dog…   18 September 2018

I believe very few people totally understand how these small sized dogs are born, bred etc.  Most people think they are out there by the dozens, a good few to choose from and that could not  be further from the truth, HEALTHY SMALL SIZED dogs are not the NORM, never have been the norm and I doubt ever will be the norm. HOWEVER, THEY DO EXIST.

i find some people feel if they have owned a hamster, no different from owning a small sized dog, COULD NOT be further from the truth.  A hamster for one is meant to be the size it is NO dog is meant to be TINY.

You get the odd breeder who does the strangest things to produce these tinies, without taking into consideration the strange stuff, they do will impact on the overall health of the pups they produce. Something like INTERBREEDING,  Mother to son, Father to daughter and so it continues, producing pups and dogs with major health issues, the new owner has to contend with the majority of that pup/dog’s life which in most cases is not very long, SHORT LIVED dogs.

Producing small sized dogs as nature intended is what most dog owners would want and it can and does happen. 

I am going to include a mail I received only this morning from a member of the public which is the NORM out there.  Often when someone contacts me saying they want another small sized dog, they have one, I immediately ask them why not go back to the breeder you got your baby (which is now an adult dog) from??? The story is almost always the same, it has been the ONLY one they have ever produced or at the time they sold it to me, I bought it we had no idea it would turn out to be small and that too happens to me.  There are no golden rules, GROWTH charts, well those are not the best way to gauge any future adult mass of any pup, unless, the pup is born at a certain weight, and sticks within the weight limits every single week however, this alone is not GUARANTEED, the pup must be disease free, no internal parasites at all eg. worms, must eat properly from the get go and be fed properly. This story of they only drink form the mother till they are UMPTEEN weeks of age, is HOGWASH.

I have even had the public come to me advising me that they bought a pup that has been bottle fed, the breeder guarantees it is tiny. ANYONE buying a pup that needs to be bottle fed is crazy.  The mere fact it has to be fed tells one very big story, one I would keep well away from.  No matter how tiny any pup is it should eat and eat very well and the tinier the pup, the more frequent that pup should eat and that would be around the clock.

Anyone buys a pup and is told feed twice or three times daily this is NO SMALL future adult weight dog.

I am also inundated with the public advising me of a pup they can buy from someone out there, pup weighed x at birth now weighs Y what do I think? Firstly I cannot comment on anyone else’s pup.  So much goes into the raising of a pup from birth.

  • How many pups in the litter?
  • Did the pup get a fair share of mother’s milk?
  • At what age did this pup begin to eat?
  • Any set-backs of any kind this pup experienced? If so that alone will impact on the overall indication of the pup’s future adult weight.

We produce pups from NORMAL weight adult females and smaller males but not mice sized males, as those are not suited to any form of breeding.

We get pups that from day one are born at a certain weight, every single week from birth reach the goal weight, they reach all goals, we expect them to reach as a certain sized pup for a future certain sized, adult weight dog.

You do get the exception where the pup is born at a pretty high weight, as it goes along the dogs weekly expected weight gain drops significantly but selling a pup like this to the public is questionable as it may decide to have a growth spurt along the way and end up more to the indicated adult weight at birth,  than the going along week by week process.  So it is first and foremost very important to go with a breeder who does have some insight into the smaller sized dogs, don’t go on “hearsay either”, they should be able to show you what they breed, etc,  not necessarily their own dogs, but the people out there who own their dogs.

You must be able to trust the breeder of your choice,  we all make mistakes this is a process that is not easy by any stretch of the imagination,  but over the years you learn more and more.

NO really small sized pup should be leaving the breeder at 8 weeks of age. Many years back we used to do that when the new owner was pushy etc, however we have not sold tinies in years at that age.  OUR genuine teacups leave us at FOUR MONTHS of age.  Fully inoculated, health guarantees, microchipped, registration to follow etc. Sold strictly on a spay/neuter contract. Every pup of ours irrespective of the size will be sold as a PET on a contract. We have never sold the first pup for any form of breeding ever.

Every single pup we have bred for the best part of the last twenty plus years leaves here MICRO CHIPPED. This way that pup and ultimate adult dog will be identifiable.

We only sell our pups as PETS, not for any form of breeding. We will only see a GENUINE teacup pup to a qualified buyer.

Looking to purchase a proper SMALL sized pup takes time, we do not breed by the dozen, we do however pride ourselves in what we do breed and sell are guaranteed to be fully socialised, NO CAGE breeding, guaranteed to have an exceptional temperament, are quality, well cared for babies you can adopt and enjoy for many years to come.  If you want a small sized dog as in YESTERDAY don’t contact me, I will not be able to assist you. 

This is a specialised size dog small sizes are not the norm so be patient if this is what you are looking for.

I attach two photos of dogs of mine I used to take out to the Malls I frequented two plus years ago, I did this for many years,  however the attention they caused became a security risk to the MALLS and we were asked not to return with our four legged friends.

These dogs are all adult dogs, the heaviest weight is 1.2kg and the least weight 600gms.  First and foremost HEALTHY and solid built, robust dogs.

Sorry the pic with the shopping trolley is not the best, but it gives a very good indication of just how small these dogs are when they are in the well- known, small plastic PICNIC basket.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.....

 

Please be advsied it is a lot of peoples dream to own a small sized dog, but there are certain issues to take into consideration, before opting to purchase a TINY or SMALL sized pup.  THey are not suited to KENNELLING, they are not suited to staying in at a veterinary clinic, they pine, become distraught.  The most important condition of them all, ensure you want this size of dog for the right reasons.... They are not suited to the majortiy of dog owners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEACUPS the real info behind a GENUINE TEACUP pup…..

I get inundated with enquiries for teacups, people wanting another teacup, I always enquire as to the weight of their current teacup, I am amazed to hear they are 1.8kg , 2.2kg etc and this has been sold to them as a teacup and they honestly believe it is a teacup.

I just had a lady call me saying that it is so hard for the public as they don’t know the full story as to what a teacup pup should weigh, look like etc, so most are conned.

The adverts for micro- teacup, teacup etc, be cautious…. First and foremost a huge amount goes into the raising of any PROPER teacup pup so it is a pricey pup. However be cautious of that,  as I hear from a lot of folk out there who have paid the big bucks and the pup is still no teacup.

OR sad to say paid big bucks and the pup is in the vet clinic for a week or three and passes away and that is really big  bucks then.

FORGET SUCH THINGS AS GROWTH CHARTS EXIST…….. this is where most people have an issue, it is not guaranteed that a pup born at any particular weight will be the weight that growth chart indicates at birth, as an adult dog.  This depends on so many factors, that if you had to know them all, you would come to realise very few pups reach that expected weight goal as was predicted from their birth weight..

What is your idea of a teacup weight dog and work according to that.? People come to me for a pup and say TEACUP I ask what weight do you consider a teacup pup and when they find out just how small they are and can be they are in shock. NO idea such sized dogs exist. 

However be cautious, if you have any doubt get it in writing from the breeder of your choice, that you will have that pup to a vet, if for whatever reason the vet does not okay it as a healthy, robust  and a TINY pup you will be returning it for a full refund. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, so many vets are not too familiar with what size a teacup pup is supposed to be but most know that a rather fair sized pup is NO TEACUP pup.

 

 

Why do I suggest this is done? SIMPLE as one particular breeder was selling very under aged pups as teacup and every one of those pups and I knew of three incidents, where the pup was hospitalised, day’s later dead pup. This is a life at the end of the day, how can anyone be so heartless and cruel?

We have come a very long way when it comes to the teacup pup, owning my first one over thirty years ago.  They are rare, they are NEVER available in numbers so the minute you are told by a breeder I have so many sitting here, be assured they are not a teacup dog to begin with.

It is not easy to raise a proper teacup pup it is hard work, dedication and a labour of love, it is total commitment by the breeder.  A proper teacup pup will eat far more frequently and at a far earlier age than any other size of pup. So when you are told to feed twice daily or even three times daily and NO night feeds, you can be assured the pup is NO TEACUP pup.

Our teacups are here for four months.  They carry health guarantees they leave us being fully inoculated. Chipped, sold on a contract to be sterilised. they will be registered.

This is a RARE size of dog, weighing anything from 550gms to 1.1kg as adult and at these weights, solid short legged, short bodied, robust HEALTHY babies.

This is no pup to take lightly, hands on, huge responsibility, no spur of the moment impulse urge to own this size of dog. This is NO fashion statement.

We only supply qualified owners who are on a waiting list with us. This size of dog is NEVER here waiting for an owner. 

In the right hands, this pup and ultimate adult dog, will live, many long, happy, healthy and fun filled years with its owner and family. I say RIGHT HANDS as this pup needs to be in a home where its needs and the responsibility of owning it, is taken seriously.  Buyers such as these do exist, we supply those folk,  this size of baby.  This is not parlour grooming material nor is it boarding kennel material.  THIS IS A BABY IN THE HOME.

Our thanks once again to ROGZ Pet Insurance for this valuable pet aid advice when it comes to BURNS and your dog.

 

Burns: First Aid for Pets

Few injuries in pets are as traumatic, painful and disfiguring as a burn. Burns are injuries that result from exposure to flame or extreme heat, chemical or electrical trauma, and inhalation of smoke or noxious fumes. Most burns that pets receive come from a hot surface, appliance or substance found in and around the home. Often it takes time for the extent of the damage to be fully realised. Burns produce syndromes ranging from self-limiting injury to devastating long term incapacitation and potentially death. Both the temperature and the duration of exposure contribute to the degree of thermal injury.

Burns are generally placed into one of three categories:

  • First degree. Superficial partial thickness wounds involving only the top layer of the skin. The symptoms are generally limited to minor pain and redness. An example would be mild sunburn. These burns heal quickly and generally don’t require extra care.
  • Second degree. Deep partial thickness wounds involving the deep layers of the skin. These burns are more painful, introduce a risk of infection, take longer to heal and require veterinary attention.
  • Third degree. Full thickness wounds involving complete destruction of all skin layers. These burns are the most dangerous and life-threatening and required immediate and extensive veterinary care.

Sunburn develops in pets that are exposed to sunlight for an extended period of time. It typically occurs on naturally hairless areas such as the tips of the ears and nose; or if the pet’s coat has been trimmed too short, exposing the skin to the sun. This type of burn is usually first degree. It is painful but generally not life-threatening and resolve quickly. Chronic exposure to sun can lead to various types of skin cancer so must be avoided or sunscreen must be applied to exposed skin.

Electrical burns are most commonly found in the mouth as a result of the animal chewing on an electric cord. The lips, gums, tongue and palate may be involved. These burns are usually second degree and do result in tissue erosion and necrosis. Dogs are more often affected.

Diagnosing a burn is usually straight forward if the event is observed.

Burns that are not observed or are malicious in nature are more difficult to diagnose as most burns develop over time as tissue damage sets in and the lesions spread. In almost every case, a pet that has suffered a burn should be evaluated by your veterinarian. It is critically important that the effect the burn has on the animal’s overall health be assessed. Besides the burn itself, the pet may develop an electrolyte imbalance, kidney failure, anaemia and a systemic infection. The extent, location and percentage of the pet’s body involved in the burn all play a role in assessing and evaluating the long term outlook for the pet.

Prevention is always better than treatment so as far as possible limit your pet’s exposure to direct sunlight, flames, household appliances and electrical cords, chemicals and smoke.

If exposure occurs:

  • Extinguish all flames. If electricity is involved, make sure the power is turned off.
  • Avoid being bitten. Even the most loving of pets will bite when painful or afraid. You may have to muzzle your pet.
  • Make sure the area is well ventilated.
  • Apply cool water compresses with a clean cloth. Change the compress frequently and keep the site cool and wet. The area affected can also be submerged in cool water. This may prevent the burn from penetrating deeper into the tissues.
  • If the burn is from a dry chemical, brush away as much of the substance as possible. Be sure to protect the mouth, nose and eyes of you and your pet. Wash the contaminated area with large amounts of warm (not hot) water. Protect yourself with appropraite safety equipment. If the chemical has gotten into the pet’s eyes, flush with clean water for 15-20 minutes.
  • Do not break any blisters that have formed.
  • Do not apply any ointments or butter-like substances.
  • Do not apply ice to the burn.
  • Carefully transport the animal to your veterinarian. 

 

 

   

 

                               


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A cruel, unnecessary – and illegal – practice

We humans don’t have the copyright on body language: dogs use their tails for communication. A tail that is wagging quickly indicates a happy, friendly dog, whilst a tail that is being wagged stiffly slowly and deliberately indicates a warning that a dog is feeling threatened or unhappy, and that he may bite or attack. 

All of which calls into question the archaic, barbaric and illegal but continuing practice of tail docking. Further research suggests that when dogs feel stress, they tend to wag their tails to the left as a reflection of what’s happening in the brain. Activation of the left-brain causes the tail to wag to the right, activation of the right brain produced a way to the left.

The research shows that dogs wag to the right side when they encounter something pleasant.  When they see something threatening, for example, a strange dog exhibiting dominant behaviours, they wag more to the left side.  These results suggest that dogs notice another dogs tail wagging and use the information to decide whether the dog with the wagging tail is friend or foe. The researchers concluded that dogs aren’t intentionally sending signals with their tails, but rather the tail wagging is a consequence of the inner working of the canine brain. Tail wagging behaviour results from the way in which different emotional signals activate different parts of a dog’s brain. WIthout a tail, a dog cannot communicate his emotions or intentions, making it more difficult for people and other dogs to know how a dog is likely to react in in a certain situation and may even lead to an increase in dog fights. Tails also assist with agility and balance.

Tail docking is the amputation of a dog’s tail at varying lengths to suit the recommendations of a breed standard. Coking involved the amputation of the puppy’s tail with a scalpel. Sometimes, rubber bands are used, although this method has never been used by veterinarians.  The cut goes through the skin, cartilage and bone. This procedure is usually performed without any anaesthetic or with a local anaesthetic at three to five days of age.  A small number of dogs are born naturally without a tail.

Tail docking, even if performed with local anaesthesia, causes pain and stress to young puppies. Recent research in pain management indicates clearly that puppies, even at a few day s of age have a full developed nervous system and a well-developed sense of pain. Sometimes, tail docking, results in serious complications such as bleeding. Infection and even the death of the puppy.

Tail docking does not provide any benefit to puppies. Traditionally, some breeders considered a docked tail necessary to fulfil the working functions of the dog. Today many working breeds are kept as house pets and only a small percentage are used for field work, which is a recreational activity for people and not an essential function. If dogs of breeds that are customarily docked are left with intact tails, they are not more likely to get tail injuries than dogs of other breeds. If a procedure that causes pain has no immediate or future benefit for the animal and may lead to complications, surely it is unnecessary and should not be performed?

Tail docking is a procedure that is carried out because people believe that that is how that dog should “look” so it merely satisfies a breed standard or a human notion of what that type of dog should look like.

Some owners say that a dog with a long tail causes problems by knocking down ornaments in the house – well try rearranging your décor.   OR don’t keep such a big dog.

The SA Veterinary Council does not condone the routine of tail docking of puppies for cosmetic purposed by veterinarians. Any veterinarian who docks a tail “unless for justifiable medical reasons”, will be liable for prosecution under the Animal Protections Aca (APA) NO 71 of 1962.

Veterinarians found guilty under this act will automatically be investigated for unprofessional conduct by the SAVC under the Veterinary and Para-Veterinary  Professions Act 1982.



SINCE THE REMOVAL OF THE TAIL OF A DOG OR PUPPY RESULTS IN PERMANENT LOSS OF (I.E.DAMAGE TO) A BODY PART, THE PROCEDURE OF REMOVING A HEALTHY TAILS IS CONSIDERED A FORM OF MAIMING.



 

Lay people are also liable to prosecution under the APA if maiming can be proved. This falls under the ambit of welfare organisations.

The NSPCA is opposed to the unnecessary mutilation of animals for cosmetic, sporting, entertainment or convenience purposes – including but not limited to tail-docking, ear-cropping, de-barking, de-clawing, and myotomy (cutting of muscle).

The NSPCA takes the identical standpoint relating to the various surgical mutilations of other species. It has long been the opinion of the NSPCA that tail docking (as well as any other form of mutilation) is a contravention of the Animal Protection Act Clause 2(1)a which states:

“Any person who overloads, overdrives, overrides, ill-treats, neglects, infuriates, tortures or maims or cruelly beats, kicks goads or terrifies any animal…… shall subject to the provisions of this Act and any other law, be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to  a fine …..  “Since the removal of the tail or a dog or puppy results in permanent loss of (i.e. damage to) a body part, the procedure of removing a healthy tails is considered a form of maiming.

According to the Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA) none of their breed standards say that a dog’s tail must be cropped, but they rather say “tail customarily docked” or “tail traditionally docked”.

Dog owners may show their dogs with or without cropped tails.

Smallholders are encouraged not to buy puppies without tails and to insist that the breeder from whom they buy their dogs does not dock tails.

There‘s no antidote for Xylitol toxicity.

However, quick diagnosis and treatment by your veterinarian can help reverse the toxic effects.  If you suspect your dog has ingested Xylitol you should contact your veterinarian immediately as prompt treatment is important. The prognosis is good for dogs who are treated before symptoms develop or for dogs who develop uncomplicated hypoglycemia that is reversed rapidly.

If liver failure or a bleeding disorder develops, the prognosis is generally poor. Most dogs who develop liver problems never make it.

 

Signs of Xylitol Poisoning…

Symptoms may include:

  • lack of energy or weakness
  • coordination problems
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • tremors
  • possibly seizures

Even very small amounts of Xylitol can cause symptoms such as seizures and liver failure, so be extremely vigilant when feeding your pet anything

Please read the ingredients labels of ANYTHING you feed your pets.  Some foods that are safe for humans are toxic to pets – Xylitol is one of those ingredients.

We recommend storing foodstuffs made with Xylitol in a dog proof location; our canine friends love a delicious cupcakes just as much as we do!lab-stealing-biscuits
