I rescued my chion from the SPCA when he was eight months old. His previous owners decided he was 'untrainable' after abusing him. He is now 18 months and the best dog I've ever had. Within a month he was fully pad-trained, walks without a leash, hardly barks. He is the sweetest, most spoiled little puppy I've met and my favourite cuddler. However, due to his past, he is terrified of most men and all strangers. He also has serious abandonment issues and cries when left alone. A dog, especially a small one, needs a lot of time and love. Please don't get a chion if you don't plan to treat it with the sweet caring heart that he/she will treat you with.

    Hi I just adopted a female dog. That appears to be a long haired chihuahua. But I suspect she may have some papillion cause her ears are more angles than straight like a chihuahua. My email is mandiluv23@gmail.com I can email pictures of her I just would like to know if I have one of these wonderful babies also. She weighs about 10 lbs but is a little overweight.

I just got a 6 week pug/chi, I am not sure how much to feed her and how often. She is so tiny I just want to hold her all the time. How often she I feed her at this age ?

    Small breeds like chug puppies should be fed 3 times a day. Usually offer about a cup of puppy small breed food for each feeding (good ones are Eukanueba, Iams, and Hills Science Diet), but be sure to read and follow the suggestions on the bag for her weight. Also if she is built more like a Chihuahua rather than a pug, you may want to give her slightly less at each feeding to avoid weight problemes.

I live outside of Fort Worth. I have  chorkies, one a year old and three 2 years old. The older ones both parents were registered but I did not register them because I couldn't find papers on the dad. Mom was a blue deer leg chihuahua-very rare in color, dad was silver and black yorkie. I need to find homes for them because I now have too many. The younger one was sired by one of my males and is very unusual looking...he somehow came out with blue eyes.

I have a 3½-year-old Chug named Hitch (so named because he looks a lot like Alfred Hitchcock in profile), who I adopted about a year ago. Despite a rocky start (he's extremely smart and devoted to me; when I would go to work, he very quickly figured out how to break out of his crate and into the kitchen drawers and doors, and I came home more than once to ankle-deep garbage and kitchen detritus), with some patience and training and a lot a lot of long walks, he's become the best dog EVER, and one of the best little friends I've ever had.

    I adopted Taffy from the Plano Animal Shelter where I was told she was a Chiweenie.  However her tail is curled to the left and now that she is one year old, I am convinced she is a Chihuahua/Pug mix.  Her body is muscular and she weighs just under 15 pounds.  Her muzzle looks like a Chihuahua with floppy ears; her coat is fawn-colored (hence the name Taffy).  I was calling her a ChiPuggy until I learned that there was a mix called Chug.

I have a chug, I've had her since she was 11 months old. A friend gave her to us. She is beige and a black face and at times, she is beautiful and loveable. She is great with kids.

I bought my Chion, Cozmo-Tiny a year ago for 100 dollars. Best money I ever spent. She was trained to go outside in 2 months. She has never had a bad day or been aggressive with other animals, people or children. I take her to my work where I am a teacher and she walks around my room greeting all the students. I plan on training her to become a therapy dog as she has a lot to offer. Wonderful animal, kind, caring, loving and smart!

I bought my Chion, Tiny a year ago. She was wonderful from day 1. She is NOT aggressive at all. I can put her in her cage when I go to work and she is just fine. She has learned a lot of tricks and is always willing to please. She was trained to use the bathroom outside at 2 months old. She would go to the door and cry. Very smart!

Hello folks, I have what I suspect is a Chug. His name is Benji. A of a friend of mine needed to rehouse him and I accepted. I believe him to be about a year old but I'm not sure. I have a 13 yr. old female black pug that is blind in one eye and going blind in the other. He is a bit much for her but they are learning to get along. I can tell he is very intelligent and learns quickly. I'm looking forward to many years of bonding with him. As he is unaltered I wonder if this will be a problem for him or if neutering is best. I believe in neutering my animals as I am not a breeder nor want to be an accidental one. My pug is spayed so no accidents here. He doesn't hump people and has figured out that my pug doesn't want to be humped for dominance or pleasure. Thank you for your earlier comments about your chugs.

    I think it is always good to spay/neuter a pet if you aren't intending to breed.  The two pups should bond and get along quite well and I think you will find the Chug will lead the Pug around helping with the lack of sight which is a good thing.

    We just got a chug a week ago and she keeps biting and nibbling. How do I reduce the nibbling and biting?
