This teacup dog usually only grows to be 3 to 7 pounds and they will usually be about 7 inches to 1 foot tall. They love to take walks and make a great indoor dog for older people. They are independent and can be by themselves at times. You can teach them not to bark if you train them consistently and they make excellent watch dogs. They are soft and cuddly and if brushed regularly, they are not too high maintenance. They are not likely to chew on furniture or destroy carpet like large dogs often do in their younger years.
