    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!

Just wanted to share as my husband drove to the store this morning & what a drive we are in the country. He looked and on the side of the road were 2 teeny tiny long haired chihuahua puppies. He stopped the truck & they ran in terror to what was probably their last home, a burlap sack. He picked them up and drove to a nearby shelter and was told sorry we've got no room. He was furious. Now we've taken in so many strays we have 13 dogs all fed Call of the Wild & probably 30 cats all dumped on our country road. Well can not turn these two away. So I guess it's welcome home holly & belle; may God send those who put you in a sack & dumped you on that road to h** where you can be repeatedly starved and dumped on each of the levels of h**. Merry Christmas to the heartless Scrooges! Thank you for letting me vent.

    I cannot speak for the others but there isn't a thing that would hurt my feelings or bother me. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    Hi Lynda, If you happen to live in Southern CA I'll come adopt those puppies. I just started looking for one and stumbled on this website.

    I to am considering either an adult or senior long haired Chihuahua. I am 73 and somewhat disabled so could not handle a very energetic dog. I'd love a long haired chihuahua - they look so much like the pomeranian that I lost to Cushings Disease a year or so ago. But I have a bunch of cats so I don't know if they could tolerate cats unless they grew up with them.

    I recently adopted a female black and white long haired chihuahua. Her name is Molly. She belonged to a family that kept bouncing her from house to house and wasn't taken very good care of. She ended up being taken by a family member and then shortly after got lost in the heat of a Texas summer for 2 days. Almost died from dehydration. She is 8 yrs old and missing most of her teeth!! So, her tongue hangs out the side of her mouth all the time. The girl that took her from the abusive family was gonna have to put her down or send her to the pound where she would've been only given maybe a week before they did the same to her. She was extremely scared, nails extremely overgrown. She has breathing problems and goes from sounding like a piglet when she's sniffing around to sounding like a goose honking when she's trying to cough something up. My son found her on facebook in our town and called me. I recently had lost my 19 yr old weenie dog, (yes she lived to be 19 and had all her teeth, no major health problems) I had adopted from a family when she was 5. My heart was broken and not ready to adopt again, until I saw Molly's pic on facebook. Long story short....I fell in love with her at first glance and though others wouldn't adopt her because of her tongue hanging out all the time and that she didn't have many teeth. I fell in love instantly and she is spoiled rotten now and is well loved. I think she saved me, not the other way around. (I had recently at the time had a life changing event health wise happen to me) GOD BLESS you for giving them a good home. Don't know where you are but if you are needing to find them a home.....I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THEM!!!! Tina Hocog (facebook) in Lubbock, TX

my puff is very nervous and spiddles' when putting her on the leash to go outside..... she does stay with me outside until she gets a spazze attack and runs around the house like crazy but always goes right to the front door when done.... i have to have her on a leash in case there are dogs out running around. inside the house she won't be trained if i tell her to come here even using a baby voice or treat she hides. training like teaching her stuff she acts nervous and shakes and is way to eager to just eat the treat i am very good at training my pets even my cats but she just doesn't seem to comprehend what to do and is like scared i got her when you was 7 months old and i know the people that i got her from so i know she wasn't abused. what can i do to calm her and train her? i know that they are good dogs to teach special kinds of tricks with would be nice to see some of them. thanks

My puff has horrific allergies I can't seem to control. I just read today wool may be an issue so when I get home I will eliminate that too. She is on dry natural food made from sweet potatoes and fish and only drinks distiller water. I put natural oil in her food to prevent dry skin. We wash all clothing and bedding in detergent for sensitive skin and her as well (puppy shampoo). And still issues! Itching all day and night to the point none of us sleep! Help! I can't afford a couple hundred dollars for a test right now, well not before I try all my options! Hope someone out here in cyber world can help poor little Dixie Bell!

    I have been told by a vet that Benedryl works which sorta makes sense as the test things on dogs. However, I don't know the dosage at all for the dog. Can you just call your vet and ask?
  • zoe\'s mom - 2013-01-04
    just adopted zoe, sweetie pup w/the most awful oozing skin. We started with grain free limited diet, and then cooked foods. For baths, started using vet pyoben shampoo with a light buf-puf, it dried everything up, including the healthy skin, started another regimen (all natural homeopathic with the exception of vet's shampoo) right after bath-with a paper towel and sensitive type of witch hazel gently wipe all the skin down, then a light spray made of purified water with drops of tea tree and lavender oil, then finish with calendula cream or gel. she loves this treatment! Took 6 weeks or better to clear it up, and then she eyed me eating the croissant and couldn't help myself but to share, ugh..2 bites and 2 days later back to square 1! Shes Gluten Intolerant! I now cook her food and add it to the royal canin because she wont eat that alone, give them choice they become picky children :) Good luck with your pup! Good luck wit your pup,

I have a Long Hair Apple Head Blue Coat Chihuahua. We got her at 5 months; she had to have heart surgery. Doing Great Now. Has problems with her left knee, holding off on surgery as long as I possibly can. She LOVES people, loves kids, hesitant about toddlers as they try to chase her. She does not like other dogs, just one she grew up with. Went through all PetSmart class and is a Certified Service Dog.

WOW! How wonderful is my Noots. He is a apple head chawawa. After reading your reading the information on feeding him... I must change his food. I wondered why he was getting so fat so quickly. He is only 1 year old. Ceasars dog food is NOT good for him. So....Noots is only getting brown rice and a little chicken from now on. I wonder how to get rid of the dark half moon developing under his eyes....it seems crusty?
