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 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!

Just bought an 8 week Chion little girl yesterday with my two teenage boys. Anything we can do to be sure she doesn't become aggressive to any of the three of us? She has a very sweet temprament right now.

    My biggest piece of advice would be to just make sure to keep on top of her discipline. If she starts acting up discipline her right away so that she knows what she can and can't do and forms good habits while she is young. If you let her get away with bad behaviors (nipping, barking, etc.) she will grow into an adult doing these things and will be harder to change her.

Adopted a 9 week old female Chion on Saturday.... she has quickly caught on to going to the bathroom outside. She takes a 2 hour nap after she eats and wakes up ready to go potty outside. She refuses to use the potty pads inside the house. I am teaching her to sit. She is doing good with it but she can't follow commands when there are a lot of people around due to her excitement.

    So cool that she's so well potty trained. I've never had a small dog, but from what I understand, some can be rather challenging to train for that. All in all, she sounds like a super pet and a lot of fun.

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.
