I just got a 6 week pug/chi, I am not sure how much to feed her and how often. She is so tiny I just want to hold her all the time. How often she I feed her at this age ?

    Small breeds like chug puppies should be fed 3 times a day. Usually offer about a cup of puppy small breed food for each feeding (good ones are Eukanueba, Iams, and Hills Science Diet), but be sure to read and follow the suggestions on the bag for her weight. Also if she is built more like a Chihuahua rather than a pug, you may want to give her slightly less at each feeding to avoid weight problemes.

    I have an adorable male fawn colored chihuahua ( Caesar) with a great personality that I would like to breed. Is Daisy really friendly and calm? Caesar weighs 12 lbs. and since Lilly is smaller that would be perfect. I would like to keep one or 2 of the puppies and then we can talk about the others. Please call me. 312-543-0561.

We have a rescue pug. We love her so much, she is the sweetest thing. We have had her about four years. When i leave or she does not see me she will start hollering. Everyone thinks shes saying mama cause it does sound like that. I would very much recommend rescuing one. You would not be disappointed.

    Just got my first pug and she is everything you described. Very playful and demands attention which I don't mind. I have fallen in love with her. I have always had big dogs but she may be small yet she is very big. She (BOO) is 4 years old but still has all the puppy spunk. And she has already shown her devotion and abundant love. Thanks BILL

I live outside of Fort Worth. I have  chorkies, one a year old and three 2 years old. The older ones both parents were registered but I did not register them because I couldn't find papers on the dad. Mom was a blue deer leg chihuahua-very rare in color, dad was silver and black yorkie. I need to find homes for them because I now have too many. The younger one was sired by one of my males and is very unusual looking...he somehow came out with blue eyes.

I have a 3½-year-old Chug named Hitch (so named because he looks a lot like Alfred Hitchcock in profile), who I adopted about a year ago. Despite a rocky start (he's extremely smart and devoted to me; when I would go to work, he very quickly figured out how to break out of his crate and into the kitchen drawers and doors, and I came home more than once to ankle-deep garbage and kitchen detritus), with some patience and training and a lot a lot of long walks, he's become the best dog EVER, and one of the best little friends I've ever had.

    I adopted Taffy from the Plano Animal Shelter where I was told she was a Chiweenie.  However her tail is curled to the left and now that she is one year old, I am convinced she is a Chihuahua/Pug mix.  Her body is muscular and she weighs just under 15 pounds.  Her muzzle looks like a Chihuahua with floppy ears; her coat is fawn-colored (hence the name Taffy).  I was calling her a ChiPuggy until I learned that there was a mix called Chug.

    I would use a higher quality food.  Look at ingrdients, you do not want the first ingredient to be a filler like corn.
  • Chris - 2013-09-16
    I would not recommend puppy food for even puppies, as most puppy formulas have milk powder in them. This could cause the puppy, or even older dogs to have the runs, which could be hard on both the dog and the owner, and could also cause dehydration. I feed my little dog moist dog food that comes in small packs. He seems to enjoy it much better than the hard 'small breed' foods.

    Appleheads do NOT do well on a beef dog food. You should find a dog food with poultry and brown rice as the main ingredients. I hope this helps you and your you lil pup.

    3 months old is very young to feed them hard food, maybe mix it with baby formula and make sure its warm (not hot) and soft.

I have an apple head who is coming into heat. We bought another male chihuahua who was representented as a toy but he is now 9 pounds, twice as big as my Mia. What would happen if I allowed them to mate? I love my Mia and do not want any harm to come to her. Would love to hear some first hand experience with this situation. I cannot believe I am the only one with this question. Thanks.

    You need to take both dogs into a vet. It might be that they can not mate or it might be that that she will not be able to deliver naturally. I wouldn't go head and allow them to mate till you find out additional information.
  • Cassie - 2012-03-16
    When breeding small breeds your male should always be bigger than your female. The male determined the size of the pups..
  • carol - 2013-01-28
    The male should NOT be bigger but smaller than your female otherwise the pups could be too big for your female to carry and deliver safely.

    When I got my Chihuahua she was about a year old...I broke her to the peep pad but she loops in the flood beside the peep pad....how do l brake her on the pad.?
  • Bethany Maloney - 2013-03-20
    Chihuahuas should be mated for size. The smaller, the better. I would find a smaller mate and neuter your male. My Rosie is a non-spade female, who I have no intention of spaying, but I'm not interested in breeding. If I were to get another chihuahua, she would be female, also.
  • lynn - 2013-06-20
    Please don't breed your dogs take a look at all the dogs in California and all over the US for that matter, that are being put to sleep, needlessly!
  • Carolyn - 2013-09-05
    My experience it is better for your female to be a little larger than the male. If you're breeding for size, the smaller male will accomplish that purpose and the larger female will provide an easier birth and healthier pups and nursing. That said, both should be within size and weight range for their breed standards.
  • Sha - 2013-09-24
    Almost all applehead chihuahua have to have a c-section because the head can't fit through the birth canal. I would consult your vet to get more info about this.
  • tina - 2013-11-25
    I have a male applehead, he has some long hair around his butt and ears, the rest is fluffy, but I wouldn't call it long, he is 2 yrs, 5 lbs, a sweet little boy named Tex, I am sure he would love to mate (or just date) your lovely lady dog.
