Chihuahuas are plucky little pups – but if you adore them, wait until you see our list of Chihuahua mixed breeds!
We talk a lot about pure-breed pups here at K9 of Mine, but mixed breeds are often just as wonderful (and more unique) than their counterparts with narrower ancestries. Take, for example, these obnoxiously cute Chihuahua mixes below!
We dare you not to smile while looking at these darling little dogs! We’ve listed all these darling dogs by breed to make it easier to find the one that’ll work best for your family! We’ll also discuss some of the most important mixed dog breed traits for each, so you will know what to expect!
1. Chizer (Chihuahua x Miniature Schnauzer)
Chizers are one of the most adorable Chihuahua mixes seen, but they are also quite varied – some look more like their Schnauzer parent, while others take after their Chihuahua parent. Unfortunately, these Schnauzer mixes are often a bit too jumpy to get along well with children.
2. Chion (Chihuahua x Papillon)
The combination of the Papillon’s long, silky hair and the Chihuahua’s bold personality make Chions as spunky as there are adorable. Plus, their medium length coats help these tiny little guys and gals to look a little bigger than they actually are!
One of the other appealing things that many owners like about these magical mutts is their “paint jobs” — these little cuties often feature a mix of colors that’s too cute for words!
3. French Bullhuahua (Chihuahua x French Bulldog)
One thing’s for sure: If you combine two of the best companion dog breeds in the world, you are going to get a family-friendly four-footer who loves to hang out with his people. And that’s exactly what most French Bullhuahuas like to do most! The Bullhuahua dog does have a potential for weight gain, so keep these precious pups on a balanced diet.
4. Chimeranian (Chihuahua x Pomeranian)
Chimeranians are not only painfully cute (just look at this little fluffball!), but they are also quite agile and active little pups. They’re a little more playful and energetic than many other Chihuahua or Pomeranian mixes, so they’re best suited for families with lots of free time.
5. Chipaniel (Chihuahua x Cocker Spaniel)
This is one of the more interesting-looking Chihuahua mixes we’ve seen, and they definitely take after their cocker Spaniel parent. Their long, floppy ears come from their genetics as a cocker spaniel mix, but they still possess the expression and demeanor of their Chihuahua parent too.
6. Cheagle (Chihuahua x Beagle)
What do you get when you cross a Chihuahua and a beagle? A tri-colored bundle of fun and love, who is willing to follow you around no matter where you go. Plus, they’re pretty darn cute, too!
Just be sure to think about the fact that these are vocal pupperinos — they’re aren’t a great fit for owners who live in housing with noise restrictions.
7. Chiweenie (Chihuahua x Dachshund)
The best thing about Chiweenies is easily their name. But, their elongated bodies and handsome markings also make them quite endearing. On the downside, these little buggers can be a bit difficult to housebreak, according to some owners.
8. Chi Chon (Chihuahua x Bichon Frise)
Most of the Chi Chons we’ve seen have looked more like bichon frises than Chihuahuas, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Plus, bichon frises tend to be better equiped for dealing with extreme temperatures than Chihuahuas are, which may make them good choices for owners who like to spend lots of time outside.
9. Chi Chi (Chihuahua x Chinese Crested)
I don’t know what to say about Chi Chis, but I am sure that if you were to ever start an all-dog, hair-metal band, you’d definitely want these mutts filling out your lineup. If only there was a way to teach them to headbang… With a laid back attitude, these pups make excellent couch companions.
10. Jack Chi (Chihuahua x Jack Russell Terrier)
One of the cutest mixes in our list has to be the Jack Chi. This little Chihuahua terrier mix is often much more energetic than his Chihuahua parents, thanks to the Jack Russell influence. So, be sure you are ready for an energetic companion pet before adding one of these little pooches to your family. A slow evening stroll won’t be enough for this terrier mix!
11. Chug (Chihuahua x Pug)
Little known fact: Chihuahua/pug mixes can intercept satellite transmissions with their ears. In all seriousness, Chugs are typically very good companions, who are both friendly and dedicated to their families (although they often bond strongly with one particular family member and require quite a bit of attention from their preferred person).
They also don’t have tremendous exercise needs, making them a great breed for seniors or anyone looking for a slower-paced pal.
12. BoChi (Chihuahua x Boston Terrier)
Another Chihuahua terrier mix, the BoChi is often adorned with the long ears of their Chihuahua parent, but he tends to favor his Boston terrier parent in the personality department. This is a pretty refined-looking Chihuahua terrier mix, who projects quite a confident, yet approachable, aura.
Regular veterinary checkups are really important for these cuties, though, as they can experience a variety of health problems, including luxating patellas, heart murmurs, and eye problems.
13. Chat Terrier (Chihuahua x Rat Terrier)
Chat Terriers are another one of the turbo-charged Chihuahua mixes on our list. They can also grow a little larger than your average Chihuahua, so be sure that you’re ready for a super-energetic dog before adopting or buying one of these little mutts.
14. Min Chin (Chihuahua x Miniature Pinscher)
If you like Chihuahuas because they are big dogs in little bodies, then Miniature pinschers – who are literally big dogs in little bodies — have to be the ideal breed to cross them with. Handsome, self-assured and loving, Min Chins make great pets for families that have plenty of time and attention to spare.
15. Chorgi (Chihuahua x Corgi)
The Chorgi is a great-looking, endearing and intelligent mix, but the combination of their intelligence and energy level mean that they can become mischievous if not provided with enough exercise and stimulation. Note that the Corgi component of these mixes can cause them to shed heavily.
16. Chorkie (Chihuahua x Yorkshire Terrier Mix)
Chorkies combine the smooth and long-haired locks of the Yorkshire terrier with a petite powerhouse personality of a Chihuahua! Just be sure to stay on top of your doggo’s tooth care and be sure you don’t miss all of his regular veterinary checkups, as both of these parent breeds are susceptible to dental issues.

17. Chi-Apso (Lhasa Apso x Chihuahua)
The Chi-Apso makes a funky little lapdog that is sure to brighten all of your days. Chi-Apsos prefer to be the solo dog in the house, so if you’re ready for a single pooch powerhouse, you’ll love these marvelous mutts!
18. Silkyhuahua (Silky Terrier x Chihuahua)
These lively pups — created by mixing a silky terrier with a Chihuahua — make excellent watchdogs despite their small frame. The Silkyhuahua bonds closely with his family and is up for just about anything, as long as you’re nearby.
One of the neat things about these doggos is that they often display a range of colors in their coats. There’s simply no doubt about it: These little canines are cuties!
19. Chi Chon (Chihuahua x Bichon Frise)
Chi Chons have an adorable teddy-bear look and as a bonus, don’t shed all that much! These pups are super loyal and are sure to bring their families plenty of laughs.
20. Chipoo (Chihuahua x Poodle Mix)
The playful Chipoo packs a lot of personality into a small frame. These energetic dogs love to play and will thrive in families where someone is usually around to keep them occupied. As bonus, these poodle mixes are often a low shedding breed.
21. Italian Greyhuahua (Italian Greyhound x Chihuahua)
This cute cross combines the sweetness of the Italian greyhound and the spunkiness of the Chihuahua. As a result, you’ll get a comical canine companion that is sure to follow you from one room to the next.
Just understand that these are likely to be pretty high-energy dogs, who’ll want their pet parent to be an active companion.
22. Toxirn (Cairn Terrier x Chihuahua)
This scruffy little pooch is another Chihuahua terrier mix who’s full of confidence, yet loves to cuddle with his loved ones. Toxirn terriers may be naturally wary of strangers, so early socialization is key.
23. Taco Terrier (Toy Fox Terrier x Chihuahua)
Taco Terriers make up for their size with a lively, bold personality. These dogs will keep you on your toes, and they love to play for long periods of time. They do have a strong prey drive (largely thanks to the fox terrier side of the equation), so they might not be the best pick for homes with small animals. As short-haired sweethearts, this is a heat-sensitive breed that prefers warmer climates.
One other thing: Given the small size of these puppers, they obviously have tiny bladders. So, they’ll always need plenty of potty breaks throughout the day.
24. Scotchi (Scottish Terrier x Chihuahua)
This designer breed is also known as the Scotchahua. One part Scottish terrier and one part Chihuahua, these sensitive sweethearts prefer to be the only pet in the home and take on the loving and loyal personality traits presented in both parent breeds.
This marvelous little mixes usually range in height between about 8 and 10 inches, and have a body weight of between 10 to 15 pounds (though some are larger or smaller).
25. ChiPit (Pitbull x Chihuahua Mix)
Look at that mug! The ChiPit is an energetic canine companion that has a high activity level. These furry friends will look forward to a game of Fetch and long walks around the neighborhood. Since both pit bull and Chihuahua parents are mouthy breeds, you’ll want to have plenty of toys and invest in lots of training sessions.
Note that you may also find mixes created by breeding a Chihuahuas with American Staffordshire terriers. And though there will be some differences, they’re going to be pretty similar to ChiPits.
26. HuskChi (Husky x Chihuahua Mix)
When you cross a loyal Chihuahua with a high strung husky, you get an athletic and curious canine companion. These loving pups are loud lap dogs who might take on the husky’s double coat, so get your vacuum ready! Thanks to the coat from the Siberian husky parent, these pups will likely have better cold tolerance than pure Chihuahuas do.
Note that huskies are often escape artists, so you’ll need to have a secure fence in the backyard.
27. ChiDane (Great Dane x Chihuahua Mix)
This unlikely combination produces a mid-size mutt with a heart of gold. These affectionate canine companions will make excellent watchdogs who are happy to protect your house against the neighborhood squirrels. Note that these pups may be susceptible to some of the Great Dane’s common health issues such as hip dysplasia, and they may also be pretty drool-prone dogs.
28. GermaChi (German Shepherd x Chihuahua Mix)
These loyal lovebugs will excel in obedience training and keep you company on any adventure. However, these mixed breed pups can be wary around strangers, so you’ll want to pay special care to the socialization process. They may also have a really fluffy coat, making them better suited than some other Chihuahua mixes for cool climates (just understand that they are often heavy shedders, so they’re not ideal for dog-hair-averse owners).
29. LabraChi (Labrador x Chihuahua Mix)
You couldn’t ask for a better family companion than the friendly LabraChi. These pups are sure to shower their family with affection and are always up for a game of Fetch. Just be aware that Labs can have a tendency to pack on the pounds and suffer from from joint-related genetic illnesses, so be sure to keep your LabraChi at a healthy weight.
Also, be sure you’re ready for endless games of fetch!
30. Malchi (Chihuahua x Maltese Mix)
The sweet Malchi is a compact couch potato that wants nothing more than to earn your affection. These canine crosses might be a little suspicious of strangers, but they bond closely with their families.
31. AussieChi (Chihuahua x Australian Shepherd)
The AussieChi is a smart and sweet canine companion that bonds closely with one or two special humans. These intelligent and energetic dogs need lots of exercise to keep their physical health in good shape and their tails wagging.
But these doggos may be spunky! Both the Chihuahua and blue heeler breeds have pretty strong personalities, so watch out!
32. Golden Chi (Golden Retriever x Chihuahua Mix)
When you cross the doting Golden retriever with the bold Chihuahua, you get an unforgettable furry friend with a heart of gold (and one of the highest sensitivity levels around). These furry friends are pretty friendly and will love keeping you company. You’ll want to watch out for genetic health issues shared by both of the parent breeds including hip dysplasia and obesity.
33. Boxachi (Boxer x Chihuahua Mix)
The Boxachi is a great pick for any first time dog parent with his playful personality. And thanks to the boxer parent, you’ll likely find that your new Boxachi is a very kid-friendly dog.
Just note that due to the size difference between the boxer and Chihuahua parents, these mutts are typically mid-sized.
34. Cheeks (Pekingese x Chihuahua Mix)
A cross between a prim Pekingese and bold Chihuahua will leave you with an adorable canine cross that’s sure to run your pooch palace. These regal pups have high affection levels, though they can be somewhat suspicious of strangers. This cross may be more prone to having oral health concerns due to its small size, so keep brushing those pearly whites!

36. Chiweiler (Rottweiler x Chihuahua Mix)
For a fun furry friend, the energetic Chiweiler is a great pick. These muscular mutts have plenty of energy and love spending time with their human family. Chiweilers can be suspicious of strangers, so early socialization is paramount.
Oh, and you’ll want to consider your attitude toward slobber before bringing one of these drool-tastic doggos home.
37. ShiChi (Chihuahua x Shih Tzu Mix)
The sweet ShiChi is happy to be the center of attention. After all, when you cross an affectionate shih tzu with a confident Chihuahua, you get a bold best buddy who will love spending time with anyone in the family. This mix is a kid-friendly pooch, so long as the children are taught to respect the breed’s small size.
Just be aware that both the shih tzu and Chihuahua are susceptible to dental problems, so be sure to start practicing oral hygiene from a young age.
38. BorderChi (Border Collie x Chihuahua Mix)
One of the smartest canine crosses is the BorderChi. These high-octane pups have an inborn desire for activity and affection and are happy to learn tricks for a treat or two. You’ll want to provide these pups with plenty of active play sessions and cuddles — these are not low-energy dogs!
39. Chisenji (Basenji x Chihuahua Mix)
The Chisenji is an independent thinker who shows his soft side to his favorite human. These alert furry friends prefer to be the only pooch in the house and can be stubborn at times, so they thrive when paired with an experienced dog owner.
40. Chiba (Chihuahua x Shiba Inu Mix)
Don’t let the small size fool you! The Chiba is a bold best buddy who although sweet, can have a stubborn streak. These pups may test you with their independent thinking, but they make up for it in their calm disposition and endless loyalty.
How Do You Find a Chihuahua Mix?
OK, now that you know which kind of Chihuahua mix tugs at your heartstrings the most, you have to figure out how to find one! Fortunately, there are a few different routes you can try:
- Scour social media. For all of the societal ills social media may cause, one thing’s for sure: It’s a great way to find a new four-footer! Just search for the breed-combo name you’re looking for and start DMing people!
- Check with a local breed-specific rescue. There are many rescues that primarily focus on a given breed and associated mixes. So do some Googling and look for rescues that work with Chihuahuas or the other breed from the combo you’re interested in.
- Look for dedicated breeders. Although they’re not as common as breeders who produce purebred pups, there are some breeders out there who specialize in various mixed-breed mutts! Just be sure to start your search in and around your zip code, and then branch out from there.
These are some of the most common Chihuahua mixes, but there are dozens more out there too!
