If you're going to go all the way to spend $600 on a dog, just save up a bit more and get from a reputable breeder.

There are plenty of small breeds of dogs- you don't need a pocket pup. There's just too much at risk, IMO.

What's the allure with all of the ankle biters? Don't get me wrong- I love small dogs (when they're not nuerotic). But, why would you want to get a dog you could step on, or sit on, and crush?

Maybe I'm just paraniod...too paraniod probably!

Which I find a ridiculously market ploy. Why the heck would I want a dog who fits in my pocket or in a teacup? I certainly wouldnt put it in my pocket, and I wouldnt want a little thing sitting in my cup!

I will never understand why people feel it's necessary to breed tiny dogs even tinier As if poms aren't small enough without the help of disasterous breeders

My friend bought a teacup or pocket Pom for $950. It had allot of health issues... My friend couldn't afford the vet bills and ended up giving it to the humane society. It is probably dead. She now has a regular sized one.

Talking Hi

Hey
When i first got my chihuahua,well a few weeks before i got her,the seller said she was the smallest of the litter and she wasn't eating properly.
She told me if she didn't start eating sooner, then i can't get her.
I was sooo sad and scared that she might not start eating and might not survive.
BUT the bad news turned around and she started eating. now she happy and healthy and so am i

Glad the breeder kept her until she was eating properly, I knew one breeder who would just send a totally unhealthy puppy to it's new home with nothing but NutriCal

Whats funny is that pom probably isn't going to be that small. 1lb at 8 weeks old is only a few ounces under average for a pom puppy with at least one littermate. It will likely be 4-5 pounds as an adult which is within the standard.

People that sell "pockets" or "teacups" are scammers plain and simple. Looking to make some $$$$$

I'm sorry..but people like your friend don't deserve to own any type of animals.
