    Teacup chihuahua's eat very small amounts at one time, so it's best to feed them 3 times a day. But watch out, because they will over eat if you let them. It sounds like you need to establish set eating times for your little fellow, then feed him only at those set times.  There's really no need to feed him during naptime. He'll quickly learn the set times when he gets food as long as you're consistent with him.

    Shedding can be caused by stress, a food alergy, and Warm weather can contribute to shedding too, as they go through a coat change. A bath as well as daily brushing will help. A high qualtity dog food can also help reduce the shedding some.

    My dog is shedding a whole lot more than usual it's never been a bother but she's white and now just lately I've noticed that there's more so I combed and brushed her last night, but she just came and gave me some lovin and when I put her down I noticed a lot of hair, way more than it should considering I combed and brushed her butt just last night! She's my first dog so I'm wondering if there's something wrong?

I was lucky enough to adopt a little short haired chihuahua named Miracle. I'd never owned a small dog as I'd lived on a ranch and always had large breeds. but due to circumstances I moved away and was given my little Miracle as the owners were going to put her in the pound. She's always a joy, she loves me so much and she's as viscious as a pit bull if she senses danger. I've fallen in love with the breed and will probalby always have one!

How to feed a 2 week old

My husband and I are parents to two short-haired chi, a male and female. The male chi-'Bass' is small weighing only 3 pounds while the female, 'Pearl' weighs 6lbs. They are loveable dogs and are very loyal. At night when I have to get up to go to the bathroom, Pearl wakes up and goes with me. They are with me wherever I go. The male dog sleeps with us while the female sleeps under our bed. We bought a male long-haired pup recently to complete our pack. I love these small dogs and won't settle for any other breed.
