I just adopted a long-haired chihuahua that someone dumped in the woods in 20 degree weather. Who could be so cruel? She's a pup and precious. I named her Cuervo to compliment my other chihuahua, fifteen year old Jose! She also gets along fine with my 8 year old lab (Taylormade) and my ? year old adopted cat (Swiper). She's precious and shows me her 'thank you's' in puppy kisses!

I am a new breeder of Havanese. My sister has been breeding this breed for 20 years. They should be around 14-17 pounds. They are now being bred for tiny. My first Havanese is under 8 lbs and 8-1/2 inches high. She is a little thin but my vet said to give her pot pies to put weight on. They are a lovely dog. My second girl is 14 lbs and seems to be a perfect weight. I have found that NurtiSource is the best food nutrition wise and particularly for their coats.

My daughter has a long haired we call her Grandpuppy (as we have no grandchildren yet) and she is adorable. We take her often for overnights. She is also not a barker and her personality and temperament is fabulous. At our house she goes potty outside only. We have a puppy pad down at all times but she has never used it. She absolutely LOVES people. She is constantly on my husband or myself. As for bed, she sleeps with us. During the night if she becomes chilled she will paw me and all I do is lift the blankets and down she goes, snuggled up to me. I have no idea how she can breathe under there for hours but she does. If she needs to pee during the night (which is rare) she will lick my face consistently. She is such a joy to have around and so calming and funny at her crazy times that we are now searching for one of our own. With the allergies my husband has with animals, she is not an issue at all for him.

    Where did you find her?

    We just adopted a Long-haired Chihuahua … she’s 8 years old. She’s amazing. She’s both potty and piddle-pad trained. She seems to do well with people and my grandchildren. Like you Lucy is constantly on me or my husband. She also sleeps in our bed but we’ve taught her when light goes out she has to go down to her end of the bed with her own blanket. Only once I had to take her out in the middle of the night, she came and pestered me … but that was once in the months we’ve had her. I take her for 30 to 45 min. walks, when we get back to our yard she runs around likes she’s put with so much energy. She’s pure joy and we are so happy we adopted her.

I just got a purebred AppleHead Chihuahua today, along with another mixed Chihuahua. Both are males. We already had a female mixed Chihuahua and are looking to breed her, but when I asked my roommate, he said she hasn't been in heat since he got her. Will we be able to breed or do we need to get another Chihuahua?

    Skin problems in Chihuahua’s can be related to toxins released through the skin at excessive levels, or from a serious medical condition called seborrhea. But problems can also come from dietary allergies, fleas, bacterial infections, and other product specific allergies. Start by getting a check up by a vet to either identify the problem or help reduce the possiblities.

    Their diet is crucial for maintaining healthy hair and skin. Skin dryness is often related to diet. Foods that are rich in vitamins A, E and B3 can help. Also switching to a food that doesn't have the same grains as the current food, or the same proteins, and that also has omega 3 fatty acids may help. It's not suggested that this breed is bathed often, but a topical treatment may help. Products (sprays, shampoos,and conditionsers) with colloidal oatmeal can soothe the skin and help relieve itching.

    Tell her 'no' in a stern but not loud voice and then pet her and give her a rawhide chew, the kind with flavor on it...it's nervous or she may have fleas.

    You did not say if the dog had this problem prior to your keeping it. If this started after the dog lost access to her Master, that might be the key. If so, you might be able to locate a piece of her owners clothing that has not been washed. This would give the Chi the smell of her owner. You could also try to let the owner keep an article of some kind in bed with them for a couple of days then give it to the Chi. I would suggest the dirty clothing first though as this would be more the smell that the dog remembers. Also cuddle the dog with whatever has the owners smell on it and just keep giving the Chi lots of love and attention. The other suggestions were good too, especially saying no during the bad behavior and then creating a distraction.

    I agree with the lady about skin problems, there may be scents and perfumes in that home, different than her owners, go to the owners home and take a look and smell around, you will be surprised what you may find, also do you spray for bugs, the owner will not do this because of their pet. Good luck and thank you for caring for this little one while her owner is ill. Shelia

I rescued ROXI a Longcoated Chihuahua/long coated Daschund...she is my shadow and she sticks to me like Velcro. Very loyal...smart...spoiled...and she ain't going nowhere. My question is with this mixture do I need to be concerned with other health issues? She weighs 16 lbs---9 inches tall. One blue eye...just curious.

We adopted a long hair Chi almost a year ago, he was so dirty and matted we shaved him down, it is winter and he still has not filled in. Louie is about 1 1/2 years old and his bark is sometimes a scream. Plus he has green eyes and a very light tan nose? Louie has a bonded sister who we also adopted and she is a pom. They love each other and share a Kennel while we are at work. I have also found that he must eat barley and fish dog food or he will pull his hair off his knees. I guess all I am needing to know is if Louie is normal? We had a pit for 14 years and was an easy to take care of dog.

    It sounds like your little dog is doing fine. He's eating and I'm assuming his weight is holding. Although the normal size for a Chihuahua is 4 - 6 lbs., some will weigh as little as 2 lbs. when full grown. These little dogs don't each much, and it is often recommended to offer them a small protion of food several times a day. Make sure you offer a quality dog food, the main portion, 40% should be proteins, with the rest rice (barley is fine) and some vegetables. Most suggest chichen, but fish, beef, and lamb are fine too, so if the fish is keeping him from pulling the hair off his knees, great. It may be that he is prone to dry skin, and the oil in the fish is giving him some necessary supplementation. Wishing you all the best with this little fellow, and his buddy pom.
