    6. carolynne spencer

      Hi my sister and I both adopted baby yorkies that are only a couple of weeks apart yet hers is so much smaller and has a teddy bear face. Does that mean hers is mixed? Tia.

      • Hi Carolynne, it sounds like your yorkie may have been bred with a Shih Tzu, a Pekingnese or a A Maltese if she has a teddy bear face. Feel free to send us a pic teddybearpuppydogs(at)gmail.com

    7. I want one cause I am getting ready to move in by myself. I will have to get a cat which I would get one anyway . Cats are my favs. I can’t afford these dogs to expensive for me.

    11. Are these teacup teddy bear pups known as “hypo allergenic”?

      • Hi Barbara, for the most part, yes. However no dogs are truly hypo-allergenic. I would suggest heading to your local pound/pet rescue or breeder and see how you fare with the pups they have there as some people are ultra sensitive regardless of the dog’s coat.
