Is that beautiful dog for sale? How old is he or she? The dog looks pretty young and I was wondering if it was still a puppy or was a miniature sized Westie? I live in CO and need some advice on where to get a Westie and a Scottie? Please advise!

Ok, so I'm 15 and a half years old. I do the 4-H Dog project for 7 years. My parents said that I can get a new dog. Which breed is easier to train and to handle; a Papillon or a long-haired Chihuahua? Thanks for your help!

    Chows have been in my family for years. That are extremely loyal and protective. They are also very territorial so it is probably best to domesticate them as puppys if you would like them to be "people friendly". The chow in the picture is beautiful!

    I have had a chow for 9 years best dog I have ever had. Make sure you train them well yourself they can be clingy. Don't worry give it 6 months to a year there will be hair everywhere make sure you brush him a lot.

I live in Fl. and have 2 chihuahuas at this time. My third was born yesterday. All females. Chiquita is 14 yrs old and as active as when she was a puppy. She is long haired. Cookie, short haired and is 8 mos old and full of energy. Twice as active as the older dog ever was. She is very fearful of people, running for my lap as they appear. The newborn is long haired and I can't wait to see her. She is in Ohio. My daughter has male and female long haired pair. I will be getting her in May. Can't wait. I will never have another breed. These suit me just fine. Love em. The baby is all white except for black rings around the eyes. Does this sound like "Panda" or what?

Hello I need to find a good place in pennsylvania to get a chug for free or on a payment plan and as soon as possible my fiancee is deeply saddened tonight. We have a minature pincher with some terrier mix and he turns one tomorrow, him and his sister so my fiancee had a dog party for them well we have a 8 week old chug a runt well sad story short the sister bit our chug in the head and his head swelled and the vet had us put him down it was a Christmas early present for her and now she is distraught and so is the brother pincher he played and loved our chug so much he keeps sniffing the chugs area and whining and I really want her to be happy again it won't replace the wonderful one we had but it's a start to happiness again please anyone help me. Sincerely jon

    Good choice for a chug. What would you call him or her? You are lucky that you might get another dog.
    I have a puppy too. It's a spoodle called beckham. He's new and almost one! I hope you have fun with your dog(s).

    You have to remember, that if there's any chance the new pup could get bit it would almost definitely be deadly, most people don't know that chives have a soft spot on their head their whole life, it comes from the chi side, we breed chugs but our first litter, my other dog bit one of the puppies in the head and pierced his brain, the vet said to put him down, but I felt guilty, and we found a doc at Cornell that performed a brain operation, it took week but he healed 100% with just a scar left. I just wanted to let you know, it will always be a risk. But good luck and I'm sorry for your loss.

My family is very fortunate to have a wonderful, 2-year old long-haired Chihuahua named Roscoe. Roscoe is lively, loves to play, and adores members of our family. He is very friendly to adults in our home, but fearful of strangers and children. He loves curling up on a lap for a nap and belly rub. My question is this: our vet recently completed a chem panel on Roscoe that shows he has elevated liver enzymes. She looked back over his records and found that these values have been slightly elevated, even when he was neutered at six months. Has anyone encountered a similar situation with their beloved pet?

    Had this issue with 2 maltese which was discovered as puppies. Never developed into anything. Common in smaller breeds. Elected to monitor their diet and selected dry food with lower fat content to reduce wear and tear on their livers etc. in the processing of nutrients.

This breed is incredibly lovable but be warned they are highly territorial and they shed ALOT. In my opinion these setbacks are totally worth it, they love unconditionally and seem to have the most unique personality found within the non-sporting breed.

    After a life time with other breeds my wife got us a Dally. At 70 I felt it was a bit much for me to handle. All I can say is 3 years later we've just got another one. They need time and exercise, but it's time well invested.
  • Steven J. Schmoll - 2011-01-29
    Not only are they extremely loving (unconditional) and territorial, they are more intelligent than any breed that I've owned. I currently have my third "Dal" in a row now and don't have plans on getting any different breed in the future. Something to strongly consider when thinking about getting one is that they are highly energetic and often take about 5 years before they calm down and become an "ideal lay around" family dog. They require lots of exercise daily and you should have a nice fenced in area where they can play and run.

    They are wonderful around children and are very protective of their families.

    If you have the time, patience, love, and space to offer this dog.....I can't recommend this dog enough. I'd glad talk to anyone considering one.
