My family and I inherited a chion last year from one of my husbands friend who could no longer keep her. What a blessing! She has been an absolute joy to have and is just the sweetest little thing ever. She loves everyone, including children. She adjusted really well to our home with three animals already living here....two cats and a lab/beagle mix. She wasn't fond of them at first, but it only took her a short while to get used to them and she adores her canine sister. I would reccommend softer food for this breed though, because they have such small teeth and they tend to have issues with their teeth and gums. She happens to love snuggling under blankets too, so you need to make sure before you sit doen on a crumpled up blanket, she isn't all hunkered down taking a nap.

We have a 4 year old female that is the sweetest little dog that thinks everyone is here to be her friend. She ignores other animals on our walks but wants to meet everyone, especially children. She is a little barky even at noises she should know. All in all she is 4.5 pounds of happiness.

    I have been told fairly consistently to not breed a female dog until it's second heat - which is usually around a year old.

    You should until she is at least 2 years of age, to be fully developed and mature enough (mentally also)for motherhood. Of course, she shall only be bred after passing hip and elbow exam. Not to mention if she has correct temperament and only to a sire that has the same and compliments her look.

I have always had chihuahuas.It started with my husband giving me one for a wedding gift,and I have had one every since. We have been married 38 years. They are like having extra children .All our kids are grown and out on their on, so our dogs are a real comfort . We now have a short hair white male,and a long hair black & tan female, who we mated, and now have a short hair chocolate female. They all three have their own personality. The daddy is smart, serious,and at times can be an ankle biter. The mom, is so sweet, very curious (which can be dangerous at time) and very playful. The baby, oh my goodness , she is the cutest thing, and she knows it.playful, smart,and dose not know she is a dog.She thinks she is a baby human .They all love both me and my husband, but they all three have a special connection with me . If you are thinking about getting a dog , I highly suggest a chihuahua, but only if you have time to be with them, because they need a lot of attention . Goog luck, and God bless.

    Almost. They come in black but with usually some tannish red around their feet and undersides.

I think modern chow-chow's are degradated from original dogs. So I prefer the sphitz type chows than the teddy bear looking ones.

I have a black anf tan female named Harleigh she is 4 yrs old. She hurt her back and can't move or walk on her hind legs, vets has her on meds and rest, confinded to the kennell to keep her from any more injury..They want to due surgery but it is $2000.00 and as a single parent I can not afford it. SO I am hoping the rest and meds work.. It is so sad to not be able to help her more, she is our family mama dog. We pray and hope she gets better soon!!

    I have a black and tan male, he hurt his back and could not walk when he was 5. They wanted to do surgery with no guarantee he would walk or would not be in discomfort. We did not do surgery. We kept him confined and within 7 days he was walking again. Within 30 days he was running. He was fine for 3 years. He hurt his back again Christmas Eve and could not walk. We confined him again, but this time it has taken close to 4 months to recover. He is starting to walk again. Very wobbly but it is encouraging. Hang in there. Hope your Dachsie get better

    Have you ever looked into animal chiropracters? They have special ones just for dogs, they do message and special touch techniques that help their backs. I have a weiner dog and my friends have weiner dogs and a couple of them swear by these dr's. One of my friends would take her weiner dog whenever her back was out, and she'd immediately get better!

    My sweet daughter dog Katie, could not use her front legs.. it made me sick, our vet gave her a round of shots and she now gets a shot every month and takes Cosaquin daily.. she is walking well.. she is going on 5 years old.. But keeping them quit and not letting them move is the answer, let it heal.. I carried her to do her potty 6 times a day... she did it and just stood there waiting to be picked up//Keep her inactive.. I will pray she get better, I cried so many nights over Katie, She is my all. And we have 4 other dogs, but Katie is my Daughter Dog.. Good Luck..

Small dogs take longer to house train. As soon as you catch the dog relieving himself inside, tell him 'No' in a stern voice...don't yell at him, then take him outside. It may take a little while but patience goes a long way. Never hit the dog or put their 'nose' in it. How would you like someone sticking your face in the toilet?? Then punching you in the face? Think about it. If you are doing this to your pet, then dont have one! God forbid one of your kids slip up!!

    We were 'VERY FORTUNATE.' Our Jay was kinda 'house broken' when he was given to us (6 weeks old). After reading about other dogs like this we are very 'BLESSED.' We use a puppy pad and praise him every time he does his job. Every now and then he will miss the pad but hey he's only a puppy and at least he does not go where ever he wants/when ever he wants. Speaking of that he will sleep from 11pm until 8-8:30-9am without getting up to go. Well since we have had him he has gotten up maybe 10 times before he has woken up.

    Our little long-haired Chi is 3 1/2 mos. old and weights 1.5 lbs. We decided, when we got her to break her to a potty pad. It is placed inside a small cage (with the door open). So she does not 'miss' the pad. We change the pad 3 or 5 times a day and she has taken to it like a miracle. For a very small dog (such as ours is) I would certainly recommend this potty-training method!
