Hi pups. I know this thread is old but please remember that the dogster forums are not the appropriate place to solicit breeding requests.

Questions about how one can responsibly breed are welcome, however.

Responsible breeders do not use the term "teacup". I think breeding him is a terrible idea, as you are obviously unfamiliar with the breed standard and would be doing the breed a disservice.

Theodore is really cute, but I have to say some people don't believe in the idea of just breeding a dog, unless your serious about breeding. When I say that I mean unless your planning on breeding him more than once I've been told that it changes them behavior wise. After all its like letting someone try ____ and say well thats it for you no more _____ ever again...then you might have to deal with him humping things. I'm not an expert on these things, but I've heard from several people that their boys were never the same after, we get alot of requests for Chi or a litter from her, and we bought her to be a pet. Besides we use to have a female newfoundland she was never the same after she lost her litter. For me personally if I were to pick a dog from a breeder I would want to see both its parents at least.

Though Theodore is a very cute and desirable by looks, and I'm sure he is twice that in personality. Though considering the economic trend we have right now, tons of people have unsecure future and thats what the puppies are going to face because you owning the stud probably have to work out the puppy agreements ahead of time. I volunteer at shelters and rescues so I do see some really cute dogs and its not uncommon for me to see what looks like a well breed dog in a cage, lonely and stressed out by all the noise. I know everyone has their reasons to buy or adopt, I'm not trying to push either one. But just thought about the whole real estate issue are less issue for toy size but not all rentals accept pets.

At that size you would need to breed him to a larger female preferably around 7 lbs, and even then he is way tiny to be a true toy poodle.

Poodles under 5-6 lbs should never be bred because it is really in the disintrest of their health. Small size comes with big health risks.

If you really want to breed, and are serious, you should think about getting two unrelated AKC true toy poodles. They should be between 7-10 inches tall and 5-9 lbs.
Speak with a reputable breeder about your interest and they can match you with a puppy who is of good breeding quality, but it will come with a very hefty pricetag too. Expect between 1500-2500 for an open registered puppy.
