It is often recommended that you take your dog in to a veterinarian when it's time to give birth in case there are complications or an emergency Cesarean section is necessary. If you choose to have your dog give birth at home, read up on the process, have all of the appropriate supplies, and have your vet's phone number on hand. The birth process and whelping can be time-consuming and very stressful on the mother. You can read

, for more info.
I would DEFINITELY talk to the vet and make arrangements to bring her in when the vet recommends. With you not being experienced with this and the male being a daschund, a bigger breed, of course, than your Chihuahua, she might need a C-section. I don't think this is a situation you should go through by yourself. I really think you need professional help here, for the safety of your beloved Mama dog and her puppies. Not to mention you will probably be a nervous wreck from worry.

I have an adorable male fawn colored chihuahua ( Caesar) with a great personality that I would like to breed. Is Daisy really friendly and calm? Caesar weighs 12 lbs. and since Lilly is smaller that would be perfect. I would like to keep one or 2 of the puppies and then we can talk about the others. Please call me. 312-543-0561.

I would use a higher quality food. Look at ingrdients, you do not want the first ingredient to be a filler like corn.
I would not recommend puppy food for even puppies, as most puppy formulas have milk powder in them. This could cause the puppy, or even older dogs to have the runs, which could be hard on both the dog and the owner, and could also cause dehydration. I feed my little dog moist dog food that comes in small packs. He seems to enjoy it much better than the hard 'small breed' foods.
Appleheads do NOT do well on a beef dog food. You should find a dog food with poultry and brown rice as the main ingredients. I hope this helps you and your you lil pup.
3 months old is very young to feed them hard food, maybe mix it with baby formula and make sure its warm (not hot) and soft.
I have an apple head who is coming into heat. We bought another male chihuahua who was representented as a toy but he is now 9 pounds, twice as big as my Mia. What would happen if I allowed them to mate? I love my Mia and do not want any harm to come to her. Would love to hear some first hand experience with this situation. I cannot believe I am the only one with this question. Thanks.

You need to take both dogs into a vet. It might be that they can not mate or it might be that that she will not be able to deliver naturally. I wouldn't go head and allow them to mate till you find out additional information.
When breeding small breeds your male should always be bigger than your female. The male determined the size of the pups..
The male should NOT be bigger but smaller than your female otherwise the pups could be too big for your female to carry and deliver safely.

Chihuahuas should be mated for size. The smaller, the better. I would find a smaller mate and neuter your male. My Rosie is a non-spade female, who I have no intention of spaying, but I'm not interested in breeding. If I were to get another chihuahua, she would be female, also.
Please don't breed your dogs take a look at all the dogs in California and all over the US for that matter, that are being put to sleep, needlessly!
My experience it is better for your female to be a little larger than the male. If you're breeding for size, the smaller male will accomplish that purpose and the larger female will provide an easier birth and healthier pups and nursing. That said, both should be within size and weight range for their breed standards.
Almost all applehead chihuahua have to have a c-section because the head can't fit through the birth canal. I would consult your vet to get more info about this.
I have a male applehead, he has some long hair around his butt and ears, the rest is fluffy, but I wouldn't call it long, he is 2 yrs, 5 lbs, a sweet little boy named Tex, I am sure he would love to mate (or just date) your lovely lady dog.

My little Chihuahua was only 3-4 weeks old when my daughter bought her. They sold her as a teacup, then when she got her home and put her down she couldn't walk and had no teeth, so she decided to take her to the Vet. That's when she found out her true age. So she fed her with a syringe until she was big enough to eat soft food. That was 3 years ago, she gave her to me 2 1\2 years ago and we are as close as we can be, she's my baby.
