Teacup poodles bred by Ivonne Winter, who says they need a lot of attention, and must be fed every two hours, day and night.

It may take a second glance before you realise that the cute stuffed animal you were looking at isn’t actually a toy, but a living, breathing creature. And even then, it may be hard to tell.

Teacup dogs are a breed of mini dogs that can fit into... a teacup. They have a maximum height of 23cm, weigh about 1.5kg, cost more than a scooter and sometimes have hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram and Facebook.
