We just got a little black and white long haired apple head last Tuesday! He is the love of our lives - well, our cats are too - but he is such a sweetie! He is now 9 weeks old and is very smart! He learned his name (Zero - partly because he weighs next to nothing, and also after the ghost dog on 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' in just a few days. He came pee pad trained from the breeder, and is doing well with eliminating on the pads as well as outside when we take him. He's currently 1.5 lbs. His mom is 4 lbs and his dad is 9 lbs. He takes after his mom in colouring, coat and bone structure, so we think he will be small. We've seen 2 of his siblings and they are twice his size already - although, he's not the runt. Great little dog! Wonderful in the car, wonderful with other dogs and cats and super with other people - although he's become very attached to me since I've been off work for a few days. He's warming up to my husband quite nicely. :D

I have had Chihuahuas all my life---I only have one now Bambi, she is long haired, just turned 6 years old, she loves everyone and all animals, she keeps me entertained all of the time, she was housebroken in a week, she gives me far more than I could ever give her----I will always have a Chihauaha. I had three at one time, Popeye, Deno and Pebbles, I lost Popeye in 12-05 at 17 and Pebbles at 10 14 weeks later that is when I got Bambi, I had to put Deno to sleep in 2010, he lacked one month turning 20.

Chihuahuas are special, loving, entertaining, always giving more than you could ever give to them. I will always have a Chihuahua

    Hello, Pom friend. Anger to you? If so, spend more time with the dog. Get down to his level. ie: I feed from my fingertips when I am lying on the floor near him. He's too snobby to use a bowl! LOL :-) Spend more time playing/ scratching/ massaging/ fooling around with him etc. I am his best buddy. Wife and daughters don't get the devotion that I get. He is angry to other people if I am holding him in my arms. He is a little angry to ME if wife/daughter is holding and I come close. Generally with other people he's ok but he yaps at little kids and tries to harass skaters and rollerbladers. Because of their noise. Maybe that will help. Treat the dog as you would treat a small person and/but NEVER threaten the dog with shouting, a stick or rolled newspaper etc. Maybe, stones in a tin, shaken, or a water sprayer etc, are deterrent... Good luck.

    Hello Pom friend. Read up all you can about Poms. This site is good. Wiki too.
    My little buddy is 7 y o now and he's just great. All the advice on this site is good. Our boy only knows, 'wait/wait a bit'. and 'lets go, lets go'. We don't bother with the other silly nonsense. Some Poms seem to be aggressive towards little kids but its more bad manners than attack. Some will be yappy but train them early and they only shout when someone's at your front gate etc. Great guard dog in that respect. Sadly medical probs because of overbreeding. Genetic faults multiplying through each successive reproduction, I think. When you get one, save money to help with your vet bills. We don't brush ours and we trim him to help with the heat. Teeth are small and its very important to use dog toothpaste, otherwise, $$$$! Start with 'pomrescue' in google etc and find breeders. Warning: They are Pomeranians. (period) Teacup/miniature/toy is garbage! Don't go to people who advertise this nonsense. Colour also includes sable/brindle, which is a mix of dark long hairs in the regular coat, giving an attractive definition and character to the dog. Good luck. :-) Ours actually answers back! Backtalk! can you believe it? I could not, the 1st time we told him inside when we were leaving. He gave a very dissatisfied growl and turned around. NOT happy :-) ha ha ha. He still does it :-)

How long will it take for my nine month old pup to get her long coat?

    Around 6 - 9 months old, they shed (blow) their coat - baby fur and coat. Then the fur grows in and the process takes about 1 1/2 years before they have their adult long coat.
    Their coat will be long before this time but it will take awhile for your little guy to achieve his full long coat.

    I would switch food as possibility the food doesn't agree with him. I'd watch him eat as sometimes the eat so fast - the wind up throwing up. Feed him a little amount at a time and put a little yogurt on it to help settle stomach. If this doesn't work, I'd take him to the vet as I would be concerned about an obstruction. If he is active, playing and poop is normal then I would just think he is eating the food way too fast. Possibly holding off eating to make sure he is not going to get something better like toast or a cookie and if he doesn't get his little treats, he just wolfs down the food which causes him to throw up.
    Good luck - little yogurt on the food - or broth might be a good thing.

I have a female Applehead and she got caught by a 4 month old Chihuahua cross pom. I'm so scared if she will be able to deliver the pups ... can any one give me advice??

    I would definitely talk to your vet as soon as possible. These little Appleheads frequently can not deliver naturally and a Pom/cross, even with another Chihuahua, might be hard for her. I'd see your vet right away.
