Wow, amazing the difference in just one day. Our new puppy Chion came home sweet and fairly docile, and is apparently getting very comfortable in her new home. She was extremely rambunctious but also very aggressive with nipping and biting, almost uncontrollably. Any suggestions on how to discipline aside from a good stern 'NO' each time?

    Sounds like a cute and energetic puppy. I would start with love and consistent gentle discipline. But most of all, she's a puppy, so I would say patience and giving her plenty of time to get used to her new home and to grow up.

We have a male Chion that will turn 7 in May. He is a real joy. Very loving and extremely smart. Loves to cuddle and sleep with his mama and daddy right between us on his back with his head on the pillow. He loves to travel especially to go camping. I do not let him off the leash unless he is in an enclosed area because he loves to chase birds, squirrels and cats. He is ok around older children but does not like younger children and tends to growl and snap at them if they approach him.

I have an eight-month-old male Chion and he is the most lovable dog I have ever had. He got parvo three weeks after I got him even though he had been vaccinated and survived after five days in ICU. He loves everyone and I have him at my store with me every day. He loves his three 20+ pound cats, one in particular. He is a joy and when I mate him in a few months with a Chion who has the same father different mother, I am going to keep one of the litter. He's very fussy about food and pants a lot in a car, but other than that, he is snuggly and lovable and loves kids and people in general. I think having him around people all day has been good for him. He loves to play and in the yard it is impossible to catch him when he's running in circles. He is very very smart!! I love him a lot as he has stolen my heart!!

My family and I inherited a chion last year from one of my husbands friend who could no longer keep her. What a blessing! She has been an absolute joy to have and is just the sweetest little thing ever. She loves everyone, including children. She adjusted really well to our home with three animals already living here....two cats and a lab/beagle mix. She wasn't fond of them at first, but it only took her a short while to get used to them and she adores her canine sister. I would reccommend softer food for this breed though, because they have such small teeth and they tend to have issues with their teeth and gums. She happens to love snuggling under blankets too, so you need to make sure before you sit doen on a crumpled up blanket, she isn't all hunkered down taking a nap.

We have a 4 year old female that is the sweetest little dog that thinks everyone is here to be her friend. She ignores other animals on our walks but wants to meet everyone, especially children. She is a little barky even at noises she should know. All in all she is 4.5 pounds of happiness.

    When you are starting from scratch - quickest way is to Goggle        Chion Breeders.   You will come up with many - all over the US but possibly one close to you.

    Many don't like being alone.  Try leaving an unwashed t-shirt and socks in the kennel with him.  They don't need hair cuts but they do need grooming - which in some cases is a hair cut.  If you don't keep them brushed regularly, they mat and it gets hard to get the mats out.  Shaking is part of the nature of a chihauhua - which is 50% of the Chion mixure.

I have a 5.5 yr old Chion. He is a rescue dog. I am not sure about his previous home life. He is the sweetest little guy I have ever seen. He loves to snuggle. He hardly ever barks. When he does he always looks at me like "did you hear that?" He gets along with my cat sometimes and other times he would rather rip her head off. It actually kind of funny to watch. They will be snuggled up together, then he will realize she is there and growl and snap at her. I give Bianca lots of credit for trying to be friends with him LOL! He is ok with the grandkids, but most of the time he would rather avoid kids. I feel really blessed to have found him.

I have a seven week old chion bitch. She is absolutely adorable, fitted straight in with my other two dogs. She is toilet trained to her mats already and comes when called. She does feel the cold but a little jumper does the trick. She was picked from birth from a litter of five my friends papillion had, all completely different markings. She's a beautiful little dog, full of confidence and very loving. I would recommend this breed to anyone.
