My friend also has a teacup Yorkie and is interested in breeding. At what age can my teacup start having sex?

It sickens me someone would even ask this question.

Why would you ever breed an animal when millions are homeless and abused at this very moment in need of a forever loving home :(

It's saddening how ill-informed the public is and how close-minded some are...

Teacups can have many complications when breeding since they are so tiny. If you are serious about breeding these animals, you should consult a vet to find out information. If the teacup can actually have puppies, etc. BEFORE YOU BREED, you should really check out the shelters! At liberty humane, right now, there is a yorkie, wire fox terrier, mini pincher, poodle mix etc. All these dogs were once puppies and now the owners got rid of them!!!

Please, please reconsider -- there are literally millions of animals euthanized in the U.S. every year -- simply because there are too many of them! And, even if you know you can find homes for your puppies, you'd still be taking a home away from someone who has already been born!!

Virtually every shelter in the country is suffering from over-crowding, under-funding and increasing expenses. Please reconsider bringing new animals into the world!

I sure hope you DO NOT even think of breeding your dog. Pleas go to you local shelter and look at all the animals that need a home. Please consider promoting adoption instead of buying or selling dogs.

I'm not going to get ugly BUT have you been to a shelter lately? Go check out ALL the unwanted animals, then ask yourself...do I REALLY want to breed MORE animals??

First off why do you want to breed? Dogs don't have to have a litter to feel fulfilled. Many medical problems can come up during both breeding and welping puppies and you do risk loosing the female and or the pups. Are you ready to hand raise a litter if something goes wrong? All these answered she should be at least two years old.

I agree with everyone else, don't breed these dogs.
Why breed or buy while homeless pets die ?
Please let us know that you are not that selfish.

I have to agree with everyone else. There are SO many dogs in shelters and rescues that need a good home. Why add to it? Although I'm sure these dogs are really cute, but there are a lot of cute dogs just like them in shelters and rescues. Please do the responsible thing and don't breed them AND get them spayed/neutered. Talk to your vet to find out the appropriate time to do this.

Alicia, everyone else is completely correct. Each morning in America, 20,000 dogs are put to death due to overpopulation. Your dog (and your friend's dog, as well) being "teacups" are smaller than Yorkies should be, and shouldn't be bred, according to the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America:
