So I’m in a bunch of dog groups on FB & a bunch of people want teacup dogs

I look through twitter & other social media sites & everyone wants one



Pls don’t support the teacup dog breeding Industry!!


“Doctors say common health issues for teacup dogs include hypoglycemia, heart defects, collapsing trachea, seizures, respiratory problems, digestive problems, and blindness.”

Plus they also have a higher chance of liver shunts, water on the brain, arthritis, and dental/gum issues

Don’t buy a teacup dog! Maybe rehome/rescue, but don’t buy!

Ah, purse rats. Our latest attempt to strip a species of all dignity and saddle it with crippling health issues.

If it is smaller than my cat it is not a dog.

Yeah that's pretty messed up. Saw a video today of a famous youtuber who bought a dog like this online and you could tell the brain stimulants were wearing off pretty fast...

Why hasn't this been branded as animal cruelty yet? At this rate, we're bound to screw up every animal in anyway possible.

I feel so bad for these dogs. Their owners carry them in their purses and literally treat them as if they are fashion accessories. Then when questioned upon the treatment they moan and cry about how the dog is "my baby! my precious little angel." as if they gave birth to it themselves. It is 100% animal cruelty.

AND ANOTHER THING

people who purposely breed dogs such as these in order to look a certain way even though they will not be able to live a long and healthy life!

worker dogs are the best types of dogs generally they are bred to be somewhat healthy as well as retain more brain power then most dogs bred just for looks who usually tend to be have a whole list of health issues and tend to be idiot level dog intelligence.

Honestly guys, if you're going to get a small dog, just get a toy poodle. Their just as cute and not abused since it's their natural size! He's 13 weeks old xD

Eugenics ruins nature. The most healthy type of dog is one that is mix breed.

There's sadly a lot of dogs that have health problems because of their breeding. I would never get one of those poor souls unless I had to save it for some reason
