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.

    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.

I had a chion named Betsy for about two, three years. Had a nasty break up and she went with the ex. She was a very social dog that loved everybody. Very rarely did she ever growl at somebody or snip at them. She played well with my daughter, even when Emma would pull her tail or play too rough. She was long haired everywhere. Adorable and loving. She was easy to train and easy to spoil. She weighed maybe eight pounds max. Kinda hard to take care of during the summer but didnt matter to me .

    3 or 4. My aunt had a male shih tzu and a female bichon frise and they had 4 puppies. One died.

    Seriously? Come on now intertwining breeds is very very wrong!
    They are a breed in their own for a reason. Breeding these animals like that is against all us shih tzu lovers policies.

    They will have 3-5 puppys.

We just got a little black and white long haired apple head last Tuesday! He is the love of our lives - well, our cats are too - but he is such a sweetie! He is now 9 weeks old and is very smart! He learned his name (Zero - partly because he weighs next to nothing, and also after the ghost dog on 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' in just a few days. He came pee pad trained from the breeder, and is doing well with eliminating on the pads as well as outside when we take him. He's currently 1.5 lbs. His mom is 4 lbs and his dad is 9 lbs. He takes after his mom in colouring, coat and bone structure, so we think he will be small. We've seen 2 of his siblings and they are twice his size already - although, he's not the runt. Great little dog! Wonderful in the car, wonderful with other dogs and cats and super with other people - although he's become very attached to me since I've been off work for a few days. He's warming up to my husband quite nicely. :D

We have many families with cats and our doodles get along very well with them. As stated above,early socialization is the key.

I have had Chihuahuas all my life---I only have one now Bambi, she is long haired, just turned 6 years old, she loves everyone and all animals, she keeps me entertained all of the time, she was housebroken in a week, she gives me far more than I could ever give her----I will always have a Chihauaha. I had three at one time, Popeye, Deno and Pebbles, I lost Popeye in 12-05 at 17 and Pebbles at 10 14 weeks later that is when I got Bambi, I had to put Deno to sleep in 2010, he lacked one month turning 20.

Chihuahuas are special, loving, entertaining, always giving more than you could ever give to them. I will always have a Chihuahua
