I would like to point out that not all Shar pei hate water. I have had four Shar pei all of which were introduced to water and swimming early. I think this is a behavior that can be modified if introduced early.

The Shar pei is a great breed...

    I have both a male and a female shar pei. Both are rescue dogs. When I first got them, they wouldn't go near the water. As time went on, with daily walks down to the water, the boy has developed a love of the water - going deeper and deeper and finally swimming (with me at his side). The girl will still only get her paws wet.

    I have a litter of 9. When I gave them a wash in the sink, 3 or 4 of them actually enjoyed it. The others sounded like they were in pain, and were shaking in fear. So I guess it's on the individual dog.

    No such thing do you mean a meat mouth?
  • Dean - 2011-12-17
    I think you may be referring to what the chinese call 'bullfrog' or 'toad' mouth. These are just different names for what we call 'meat mouth'.

You want a Mixed dog? I, well my girlfriends parents do, they have a Golden Retriever mixed with a Husky. It has the baby blue eyes, the nose is not as long as a retriever, and the body is just under as long as the Husky. It has big paws with the not so long legs, tail is like a retriever, and the nose has somewhat tanish to brown spots too. So if you want a mixed dog this is it!

I have a 4yr old long hair chi (Cody). He was a stray. It was love at first sight! He is very skittish when going outside to do his "business". He, sometimes, walks with a limp. Our vet says his kneecap slips out of place and he has to stretch it back into place. He says this is common to chi's. We have not gotten a second opinion, yet. Has anyone else had this problem? I hate seeing Cody in any discomfort.

    I haven't heard of this which doesn't mean it is not true. However, I would try a different vet. I would get a second opinion.

    I have a two year old long hair Chi, and yes my dog has this problem. I was told that it was common in small dogs. My vet told me to make sure he doesn't jump from high places. The sofa is fine but my bed is not.
  • KittyandChichi - 2011-08-28
    Yes, absolutely a common issue with chihuahuas and many small breeds. It is known as luxating patella. Sometimes a surgical procedure can help, other times it is enough to watch your small dogs activity and be sure they do not do anything that will aggravate the situation. (Jumping off of high surfaces, running on unstable ground, etc.) I have a five-ish year old purebred longcoat chi and he LOVES trying to be airborne off of the back of the sofa or a patio table. So far his strong genes have preserved his patellas but I still have to keep a close eye on how high he goes.

    Is he over weight? This will make it slip and if not try a product called NUpro find in pet- co or pet stores

I do too! My dog is supposed to be a pom, as well. How can I tell the difference between a pom and a long hair chihuahua?

    I rescued Titus from going to the pound. The vet says he is most likely a long-haired chihuahua or may have some Pomeranian in him. He is for sure the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can't believe how he came into my life. I've never had an inside dog before but he is the bomb! In looking at pictures of both breeds I think my Titus looks more like a long-haired chihuahua but he seems to be larger than the breed typically is. Although he was skinny and malnourished when I got him, he still weighed 12 lbs. Only had him 1 month and he is 13 lbs. I know this isn't answering your question because I too would like to know how you tell the difference.
  • KittyandChichi - 2011-08-28
    Sometimes you can tell by the ear size and definition. Or by the muzzle or chest cavity definition. I see many pom-chi combo dogs that their owners identify as one or the other but someone familiar with either or both breeds will know is a combo. My five year old longcoat chihuahua is DNA certified as a purebred but people often think he is a pom. (Including a highly reputed chihuahua breeder in my state!) If you are really determined to find out, you can get the DNA testing kit off the web for about $70. It's fun to do and I only did it to prove the all-knowing breeder she didn't know as much as she thinks.
    Also, longcoat chis are the result of breeding strategy which means somewhere back up the dogs genetic line a different breed was introduced in order to get that long hair effect. More than any other long coated breed the pomeranian has been used for this purpose. (Likely because Poms and Chis are so similar in many ways.)

    Poms have a much thicker coat where as a chihuahua has a much thinner long coat and chihuahua have feathers which poms don't. Best bet look on internet for breed info
