DO you mean in a retail outlet ? If so, there's a shop in Brimstage Craft Centre, that sells old china cups, saucers,and plates single set. Sometimes just the cup and saucer, although not very cheap.
Not sure I understand the 'pup' bit.

Teacup pups are the pups of any of the toy breeds - yorkie, chihuahua, shihtzu etc. So called as a marketting strategy to add to the cute factor and bump the price up by a couple of hundred!

So now a toy breed dog is called a "Teacup dog"? Seems pretty silly to me,so something like a westie would presumably be a teapot dog,a labrador could be a swing bin dog and maybe a german shepherd could be a wheelie bin dog.I wonder what a Saint Bernard could be called? And don't say Rover, Zipper.

This picture from Street View is on Montgomery St. on Telegraph Hill, San Francisco. I first saw it years ago. I thought I had taken a picture, but I can't find it. The sign says "No dogs, teacup poodles O.K."

They are, in all official breeding and showing circles. The term teacup dog/pup is not recognised by any of the major canine organisations or breed societies, either here or in the USA. I believe, though am not certain, that the term originated in the States.

Teacup dogs MAY be smaller than normal for their breed, though are not always so. But again this shows a clever marketing ploy to allow breeders to not just sell pups who would normally be passed over as small and weak, and dogs who would be no good for showing as they fail to meet breed standards, but to sell them at premium prices by attaching the "teacup" label to them (can you tell I'm not a fan?!?!)

Some good info at http://www.mans-best-friend.org.uk/teacup-dogs-puppies.htm

Hmm... 'runts' wouldn't be such a good marketing ploy. I think the very small breeds can be prone to health problems? I'd be scared stiff of having a dog that small in case I trod on it or shut it in a door by accident. Something around knee height with a decent nose and tail seems more 'doggy' really.

If you're going that small, why not have a hamster? Very strokable, very much cheaper, doesn't need taking for walks, no sloppy poos, good with children etc.
