When I was a kid a neighbour had a min pin and he was a dog of likely somewhere arouncd 12 lbs so that is always what I thought Min Pins were.

I was in the pet store the other day and this Chihuahua sized dog was there and looked just like a Min Pin and I asked the owners how old it was and they said 2 so definitely full grown and they said it was indeed a Min Pin.

What kind of Min Pins are these tiny little dogs? Are they bred to be the dreaded "teacup"?

I always thought Min Pins were about a foot tall and about 10-ish pounds.... I didn't know they came smaller! Where's the min pin experts!? :P

Yeah, me too. This little guy sure was cute but I wonder what health problems may plague the little guy.

Prince, my Min Pin, is about 15" tall and weighs between 11 and 12 pounds. He's tall for a Min Pin. AKC says that they should be about 10 - 12" tall with the most desireable height being 11 - 11.5" tall. I think this is definately questionable breeding.
