    There is no such thing as a Teacup Chihuahua. Some Chihuahuas are just smaller than others. They can weigh from 2 -6 pounds.

    Many people would say that there is no such thing as a teacup size dog. Many Kennel clubs and groups do not even recognize teacup size dogs but instead the quality of a dog as to the weight of the dog.

    The Chihuahua is already consider to be a toy breed to many kennel clubs which is the smallest group of dogs:

    "Weight – A well balanced little dog not to exceed 6 pounds. Proportion – The body is off-square; hence, slightly longer when measured from point of shoulder to point of buttocks, than height at the withers. Somewhat shorter bodies are preferred in males. Disqualification – Any dog over 6 pounds in weight." http://www.akc.org/breeds/chihuahua/index.cfm

    Height, Weight
    Height: 6-9 inches (15-23 cm.)
    Weight: 2-6 pounds (1-3 kg.) http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/chihuahua.htm

    So according to the AKC your Chihuahua's weight is appropriate weight for his/her size, which is good.

    No such thing because there is no standard because TEACUP is not a recognized breed standard. It's just greedy breeders mating the runt to the runt until the desired shrinking has occured.

    You're going to get a lot of grief for this question here. Just fair warning.
