SHANANIGAN'S TEACUP POODLES

AKC Teacup-Tiny Toy Poodle Babies

IMPORTANT...READ THIS  

True teacups are hard to come by. For this reason, the smaller the size and the rarer the color, the more expensive the puppy. I price my poodles according to my perception of quality and projected size. Although it is impossible to make any guarantees as to adult size, there are rules of thumb that most breeders use to project the size a puppy will attain.Realize that there are exceptions to these rules. However, I will be able to present you with extensive pedigree information which will help you in making your decision on your poodle. I also chart the size and weight of my puppies from the day of birth. I have pictures of both parents and in some cases, even pictures of grandparents and great grandparents. I have information on puppies from previous litters and most of my breeding dogs come from over seven generations of very small, teacup sized poodles. I try to keep champions as far back in the pedigree as possible to avoid the birth of the larger toy poodle. However, to achieve the correct conformation that I am striving for in my breeding program, I do look for pedigrees that have multiple champions some distance back in the ancestry.Although I breed primarily for the teacup sized poodle, I will have the occasional tiny toy poodle. All of my babies are raised in my home and are well socialized by the time they pack and leave for their new life. They have the run of most of the house and get along well with other dogs, as well as children. All puppies come with current vet check up, vaccinations and worming, tails docked, dew claws removed and a puppy cut, if requested. You have 48 hours from receipt of your puppy to see your vet in order to confirm the health of your new baby. Should anything be amiss with the health of your new addition, a note from your vet indicating the problem will be required to obtain a refund or replacement puppy. I will not knowingly sell you an ill puppy. It is in no one's best interest; not yours, mine, nor your puppy's.

I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SALE OF MY PUPPIES TO INAPPROPRIATE HOMES. THAT DETERMINATION IS MADE AT MY SOLE DISCRETION. IF A SALE IS TERMINATED BY ME, YOU ARE ENTITLED TO AN IMMEDIATE, FULL REFUND OF ALL MONIES PAID IN ADVANCE TOWARD THE PURCHASE OF THE PUPPY. IF THE SALE IS TERMINATED BY BUYER, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT INITIAL DEPOSIT IS NOT REFUNDABLE. MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE PUPPY YOU PLACE ON HOLD, WITH A DEPOSIT, IS THE PUPPY OF YOUR DREAMS!!   

 GUIDELINES  

Please note that predicting future adult size is NOT an exact science, and although I maintain a substantial history of the growth rate of past pups, and use the conventional "rules of thumb" for predicting size, there is never a guarantee as to size at maturity. I will offer you personal contact from past customers and you can feel free to share their experiences.

TOY SIZE...up to 10" as an adult and from just over 6 lbs up to 10 lbs...$500.

TINY TOY SIZE...up to 9" as an adult and from just over 4 1/2 lbs up to 6 lbs...$800-$1000 

TEACUP SIZE...up to 8" as an adult and from 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 lbs ...$1500-$2000 depending on color and pedigree

TINY TEACUP SIZE...8" and under as an adult, and  from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 lbs at maturity...$2500-$2800 depending on color and pedigree

A WORD ABOUT OUR NEUTER CONTRACTS:

 

Though all of our pups are sold with limited AKC registrations, some of our puppies may be sold on a "neuter contract", as well. This is done as a means to encourage new owners to have certain male pups neutered by 6 months of age. A $500 "neuter refund" is returned to the buyer, upon proof of neuter.

THE EASIEST WAY TO REMEMBER THE TEACUP CATEGORIES IS AS FOLLOWS... CLOSER TO 2 LBS, CLOSER TO 3 LBS, AND CLOSER TO 4 LBS. I PRICE MY PUPS ACCORDING TO MY PERCEPTION OF QUALITY. THE ABOVE PRICES ARE GUIDELINES, ONLY, USED TO HELP ESTABLISH A GENERAL PRICE RANGE. PEDIGREE, PARENTS, COLOR,AND OVERALL CONFORMATION CAN IMPACT PRICES.

RARE COLORS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE BROWNS AND REDS AND ARE PRICED ACCORDINGLY, AT AN ADDITIONAL $200. PATTERNED POODLES (PARTI AND PHANTOM) ARE ALSO AN ADDITIONAL $200.

*MICRO TEACUPS, THE VERY TINIEST OF THE BABIES, ARE VERY RARE AND AS SUCH, THE MOST EXPENSIVE. THE COST OF A MICRO TEACUP RANGES FROM $3000 TO $3500, DEPENDING ON THE PEDIGREE, COLOR AND CONFORMATION.

DEPOSIT: A NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-TRANSFERABLE, DEPOSIT OF $100.00 MUST BE MADE AT TIME OF SELECTION OF YOUR PUPPY. NO DEPOSITS ARE ACCEPTED UNTIL THE BABY HAS HAD HIS/HER 8 WEEK VET EXAM.  HALF OF THE REMAINING BALANCE MUST BE MADE BY 10 WEEKS OF AGE, WITH THE REMAINING HALF MADE PRIOR TO RECEIPT OF YOUR PUPPY. PAYMENTS CAN BE MADE BY CERTIFIED CHECK, POSTAL MONEY ORDER,  OR CHARGED THROUGH PAY PAL. (PAYPAL CHARGES A 3% SURCHARGE FOR USING THEIR SERVICE.)

LEAVING THE NEST:  TINY TOY AND TOY SIZED PUPPIES CAN GO TO THEIR NEW HOMES AT 8 WEEKS OF AGE. TEACUP SIZED PUPPIES WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL THEY ARE NEAR 2 LBS OR AT 12 WEEKS OF AGE.

 

TRANSPORTATION

All transportation costs will be borne by the buyer. I have used American and Delta Airlines with much success.The cost for air transportation ranges from about $170-$250.

A health certificate and crate are also required for transport.This usually runs about $75, for which I will be responsible.

 

THE ABOVE PRICES ARE WITH RESTRICTED REGISTRATIONS. MY FIRST OBLIGATION IS TO MY PUPPIES AND MY FIRST PREFERENCE IS TO SELL MY BABIES TO PET HOMES. UNRESTRICTED REGISTRATIONS ARE CONSIDERED ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS AND COME WITH A SIZABLE INCREASE IN FEE. I SELL MY PUPPIES FOR CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN OTHER BREEDERS WITH THE SAME LINES, BECAUSE I TRY TO KEEP THEM WITHIN REACH AS A FAMILY PET. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BREEDING STOCK, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO RECOMMEND SOME TOP NOTCH KENNELS WHO SELL (AND PRICE) FOR JUST THAT PURPOSE.

BABY PICTURES:  UPDATED PHOTOS AND WEIGHT RECORDS OF YOUR NEW BABY WILL BE SENT TO YOU WEEKLY OR UPON REQUEST.

Though all of our pups are sold with limited AKC registrations, some of our puppies may be sold on a "neuter contract", as well.
