    If she won't eat or drink anything then I would get her to the vet as soon as possible as there could be an obstruction from something she swallowed. However, if she is eating just a little piece of toast for breakfast and a little bite of sandwich and a little sip of milk etc - these guys are very tiny and that stuff is so much better than dog food and water. Then she is eating - If she is not eating anything - get her to the vet.

    I have a male chihuahua who is also a fussy eater. A lot of times he gets tired of his dog food so I frequently switch to other brands. When he gets tired of dog food, I'd boil chicken breast with a little salt. He loves it!

    My dog Nico is 15 months and also is a fussy eater. Too many tricks deter him from his food. But when hungry he will eat. Make sure you have lots of water - they drink a lot.

My husband and I are parents to two short-haired chi, a male and female. The male chi-'Bass' is small weighing only 3 pounds while the female, 'Pearl' weighs 6lbs. They are loveable dogs and are very loyal. At night when I have to get up to go to the bathroom, Pearl wakes up and goes with me. They are with me wherever I go. The male dog sleeps with us while the female sleeps under our bed. We bought a male long-haired pup recently to complete our pack. I love these small dogs and won't settle for any other breed.

Hi, I just became an owner of a 2. 5 month old rednose. He is so cute. I have a one month old, a 2 year old and 4 year old gd. Children who live with me as well as a 93 year old mother. Will this dog be okay with them? Also, how do I potty train this dog? I do know somethings about training ie. Have hand signals to go with words like 'no', 'sit' and I know they need excercise so I have a yard to play with him in.

    I have two red nosed. They were adults when our first child arrived and it was a source of anxiety for me also. We had a bitch and one of her first puppies. They were 10 and 6 years old...The mother, used to sleep under the cot and if she wasn't inside, she slept at the bottom of the window. Take him to obedience and train him to listen to commands as they can be excitable and they sometimes forget that they are not a maltese! Get your children involved in this training as the dog will then listen to all the family members, not just you.
    Potty training....persistence, take him outside often and tell him to go just like any other dog. We had our girl trained to walk to the door, sit and speak if she wanted to go outside. It is all repetition...and that takes time.

So I have a Red nose pit I don't think she is the American Terrier but when I first got her she was so loving and kind I noticed however when I gave her a bath she nearly flipped she was shaking and trying to flee anywhere she could she also wouldn't come near her water bowl if I were filling it or standing near it while it was full. After a while she lets me bathe and water her but only me I want my boyfriend to be able to do this for her too but even after month of trying she still doesn't trust him, any advice?

    Have your boyfriend reward with treats and play before he tries to bathe or discipline.

I have a 20 month old female English Bull Terrier and I have been in a different country for a little over a year. She has been at my home back in the states. My renters are taking care of her while im away. I was wondering what to expect as far as her behavior towards me and how best to approach the correction of misbehavior if any. I was with her for around 6 months before I had to leave. Of the time I spent with her she is one the best breed of dogs I have ever owned. Any advice will be much appriciated. Thanks

    Do not worry. She should sense or remember you - know somehow that you have been there before. She was pretty young when you left but she will come around. There is no real way to tell fortunes in this world that i know of. She will sense your scent and voice and know something but we can't know what. Just be the same fella you were and give her a few days to come around. Don't correct a misbehavior untill you have rewarded her for postive behaviors. Positive behavior - coming to her name, going potty outside, giving you a kiss, Chilodren and pets both have a way of doing any behavior to get attention whether it be good or bad so if she gets to excited and pees on the floor - not a bad behavior she should be corrected for. Reward before correction. Also remember that people are different in what they believe is a bad behavior in the pets and in their kids. So you don't want to correct her for something the other people thought was an OK behavior. Get to know her again and then gradually trnasfer over to your ideas regarding correction.

I just adopted a Chihuahua, and I think she's long haired. She weights about 13 lbs. I think she is also dachsuand. She is the sweetest thing and loves to sleep with me in my arms all night and under the blankets.
Because I got her at a shelter she was used to being in a room for 14-16 hours a day before going potty out side. I can't get her to go outside at all and when she goes, she goes inside the house. Any advice?

    That is hard - cuz not really housebroke. Try the wee wee pads - many people swear by them and say they work terrific. Your little one is in a crate or in a room or whatever and just place the wee wee pads there. Place a wee wee pad by the door - where you go out taking her for a walk. When she goes potty on the wee wee pad - take the pad and place it outside. If she goes somewhere in the home - try and clean it up with a wee wee pad and take it outside. What we are trying to do is take her scent from potty and place it outside so she starts to understand it is safe and OK to go potty outside.

I'm thinking of getting a bull terrier, but I dont know if I should because since I'm all day at work and get home by around 7 pm and I wouldn have much time for it..... but I have a huge patio that he can run in all day... should I get one?

    If you are concerned about having enough time to spend with a Bull Terrier - or any pup - you probably should not do it. Yes, he has a patio etc but pups can be extrmely destructive and they require a lot of attention. Maybe waiting until you have more time - might be an answer. A kitten which is more independent and not as destructive? You get home a 7 pm and have to eat, bathe, cook , clean - when would you housebreak train etc. Also, Bull Terriers are extremely pack oriented and don't do particularly well on their own.

I am wanting to get a small dog within the next few months. I am researching to make sure I will get the right breed for us. The dog will be left alone while we are at work (7:30am-5:30pm). Will this breed be suitable? Or if you know of other small breeds that would not mind being left alone during the day please let me know.

    I own a longhair chihuahua and she just sleeps while I'm gone. She's totally fine as long as you're ready to play when you get home. She was easy to indoor potty train as well.

    I have a long haired Chihuahua and I love him. The only thing is that they do shed a little bit so there is fuzzy to sweet or vacuum. The other thing is also their behind. You may have to spray water to clean it. It depends more on what you feed them. He snorts when he is happy like a little pig which is very cute. He is very potty trained and yeah they do tend to sleep when one is gone. They also love their toys. Get them a stuff animal toy that you can press to make noises.
