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 purebred pups here at K9 of Mine, but mixed breeds are often just as wonderful as 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!

Chihuahua Breed Basics


Before we dive into Chihuahua mixes, we should meet the star of the pairings: the Chihuahua! This pint-sized pooch isn’t lacking in character, and getting to know him is key in determining which (if any) Chihuahua mixed breeds match your lifestyle.

History of the Chihuahua

three Chihuahuas

The Chihuahua is a descendant of the Techichi, a pup beloved by Mexico’s Toltec people. The Techichi was larger than today’s Chihuahua, with the breed’s shrinkage started by the Aztecs, who bred the Techichi to be a more compact companion.

In time, these smaller doggos became a popular breed in Mexico’s state of Chihuahua, earning the mutt its moniker when it was recognized as a breed by the AKC in 1908. As you can see, this little one has always been bred to be a human’s best friend!

The Appearance of the Chihuahua

The oh-so-mighty Chihuahua is the world’s smallest dog breed, standing a whopping 8 inches maximum at the shoulder and weighing no more than 6 pounds. The standard calls for a “well-rounded, apple dome skull” with large, erect ears.

The Chihuahua comes in a variety of colors, with 9 recognized by the AKC, including chocolate, black, and fawn. Accepted markings like black sabling, black brindling, and spotted on white can make his look even more unique. He can have a long or smooth coat.

Regardless of your Chihuahua’s coat, he’s poorly suited for cold weather. He cannot be an outdoor dog and needs a coat for potty breaks in frigid conditions.

A Chihuahua Temperament

As a famous lap dog, the Chihuahua is one of the most well-known Velcro dog breeds, preferring a starring role at your side over anywhere else. This affectionate personality is perfect for those who work at home or for those with a busy lifestyle looking to bring a buddy on the go.

He also has a surprisingly playful nature, so be sure he has some of the best toys for Chihuahuas available. That said, his fragility makes him a poor choice for families with children.

While the Chihuahua’s compact size makes him a favorite among apartment dwellers, he’s among the most vocal dog breeds, which can be a real headache for your neighbors if he’s allowed to yap incessantly. Teaching the “quiet” command is vital for keeping the peace.

Training a Chihuahua

Working on early obedience and proper socialization with your Chihuahua is vital in shaping him into his best self and avoiding the dreaded small dog syndrome that often gives the breed a sour reputation.

He’s eager to please and responds well to positive reinforcement with training treats, picking up commands quickly with the right motivation. Just be sure you don’t give him too many high-calorie rewards, or he’ll get portly fast.

A sore spot with this breed is housetraining, as the Chi is notoriously hard to completely break of piddling around the house. Patience, a proper feeding schedule, and regular bathroom breaks are your best friends with him. He’s an OK choice for a first-time owner, provided you’re dedicated to molding him into a confident canine.

Chihuahua Grooming Needs

A smooth coat Chihuahua is an easy keeper when it comes to grooming, making him an excellent choice if you’re after a low-maintenance pup. Just brush him weekly to remove loose hair and bathe him as needed. Regular nail trims, ear cleaning, and toothbrushing will keep him in great shape.

As for a long-coat Chihuahua, brush him a few times weekly to prevent tangles, with a special focus on the ears and tail. You may need to trim longer ends occasionally to maintain a neat look. A sanitary trim is another great idea to prevent any potty messes.

Health Concerns of the Chihuahua

The Chihuahua is a relatively hardy breed with a long life expectancy, but some health problems plague him, including heart issues, eye disorders, and luxating patella. Dental woes are another worry, but regular toothbrushing can mitigate these concerns.

As with all dogs, you’ll want to watch his waistline, too, as his charming ways tend to earn him extra treats that can lead to pudginess. Be an active dog owner and encourage him to exercise in addition to feeding him a balanced diet to keep his weight in check.

41 Charming Chihuahua Mixed Breeds

Ready to meet the cutest Chihuahua mixes around? Let’s check out these adorable doggos together and learn a little about some of the most popular chihuahua mixes!

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 spaniel parent, 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 equipped 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)

This combo canine can come in a variety of coats, with everything from hairless to smooth to powder-puff styles! Predicting grooming needs can be a challenge, so expect the unexpected if you don’t know your floof’s parents. If you’re after a lap dog, this might be your mutt. 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!

Just can’t get enough of this cutie? See more Jack Russell terrier mixes.

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)

Chihuahua and Corgi mix

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. HavaChi (Chihuahua x Havanese)

Looking for a teddy bear doggo? Check out this long-haired legend, likely to inherit at leash some plush looks from his uber-hairy Havanese side. Just be prepared to groom him regularly, including frequent combing, as his coat will mat without proper care.

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 (Pit Bull 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.

Loving these colossal canines? See more Great Dane mixes!

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.

Go gaga for goldens? Check out more golden retriever mixes.

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!

35. DoberChi (Doberman x Chihuahua Mix)

This handsome hound is a cross between the sensitive Doberman and sweet Chihuahua. Together, you get a bright, fiercely loyal friend that is happy to keep you company day in and day out. Just be sure your food budget is ready for one of these dogs! They often have hearty appetites!

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.

Sure love the look of this cutie? Get to know more shih tzu mixes.

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.

Loving this cute combo? Meet more shiba inu mixes.

41. Chin Chi(Chihuahua x Japanese Chin)

Combining two famous lap dogs can create the ultimate couch companion in this canine. Just be ready to handle lots of hair, as this petite pooch can have loads of long strands needing daily brushing to prevent tangles. You’ll also want to watch his eyes, as these bugged-out features are an injury risk around brush and other debris.

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! Search for the breed-combo name you’re looking for and start DMing people! Sadly, people often look to rehome Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes, as these long-lived doggos frequently outlive elderly owners.
  • 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!

At any rate, don’t hesitate to tell us all about your favorite Chihuahua mix in the comments – especially if you have one! Do you have a cute little Chihuahua terrier mix? Does your family include a cocker spaniel x Chihuahua? We’d love to hear all about them!

You could even send us photos, if you like!

I had a Chihuahua and Pomeranian which I called a taco pom but I know she would have been called maybe a pom chi or chiapom

Ben Team

It doesn’t really matter what you call her, Kat — most of these breed combo names are just made up. Only a handful of them are “official” in any capacity.
Besides, she doesn’t care. She just wants yummy treats and scritches.


Which type of chi mix is your cover photo? That’s my Jasper exactly!

Ben Team

Sorry, Lily — that particular image is just a stock photo, and unfortunately, it isn’t labelled.
But if you really want to know about Jasper’s ancestry, you can always use a dog DNA test.


Anne w/ an E

I just adopted a 6 year old Chiuaua/Terrier Mix a week ago today. She is very sweet. I got her at a shelter, she was a stray. I was just looking for a small dog, not a specific breed, but I got lucky.

Ben Team

Congratulations, Anne w/ an E!

I have chihuahua dog healthy ad eat homemade food such as, meat chicken pork rice fruit vegetable soup egg milk etc etc he is in good shape l go to veteranía doctor

Bob Haskell

It’s just my personal reaction, but some of these photos seem like shots from a bizarre sci-fi film where unnatural cross-breeding has been going on.

Were these crossings encouraged and arranged by human beings, by any chance? They look very weird to me. Especially the pitbull chihuahua.

Ben Team

Hey there, Bob.
Some of these are definitely more “conventionally cute” than others, but keep in mind that ALL dog breedings are “natural.”
We don’t know the specific circumstances surrounding many of these pooches, but even if humans deliberately tried to encourage the breeding, the results are still “natural” — humans are just as natural as trees, butterflies, or dogs.

Elizabeth Sherrylee Guerette

I’m just curious if any of y’all had ever seen a chipit? that is what we call a combination of pitbull and Chihuahua LOL

Ben Team

Can’t say that I’ve seen one myself, Elizabeth, but that certainly sounds, uh, interesting!


I used to work at a pet friendly store and one of my favorite customers had a chi pit named Gemma. She looked like a pocket bully with big ears.

Hey there, Stephanie.
You could probably find a Chihuahua-pug mix — you’ll just have to start searching all the usual places (such as local shelters, PuppyFinder.com, etc.
Best of luck!


We have a sweetheart Chi whose great gramma was a Rottweiler-Pitbull mix. Don’t know what you would call him. Kody sits, lies down, heels and will fetch his 6 favorite toys by name (gater, weeny, rags, elly, bunny, teddy). He was born with a “docked” tail. We adore him!!!

Ben Team

He sounds wonderful, Sharon! Thanks for sharing!

We have a ShiChi, a Shih tzu-Chihuahua mix.
She looks more like a Papillon, but out of four litters, she’s the only one who didn’t look more Shih tzu.
We joke that we have a Chinese-Mexican dog with an Irish name: Teagan Moira.


I have a mix of a chihuahua and I think he’s either a Carhuahua or a Chat Terrier I don’t know, but I think he’s a Chat though cause it looks like in that pic my dog has the same design but black body, white chest and paws, and brown ankles and the tip of his ears are brown.

He’s also a very fast dog so can you help me out, I need to know what breed he is… cause we go him from the pound and they never said his breed, but he did say he’s about five yrs old.

Ben Team

Hey, Tiana.
Unfortunately, the only way you’ll really know is to use a doggie DNA test.
Let us know what it determines!

Hi, my Jack Chi Charlie (Jack Russell/Chihuahua) can pull me out of any pandemic boredom funk with his happy upbeat personality. He’s, not only, my best buddy & companion but he’s the best alarm system ever.
He’s smart as a whip too. I’ve never had a dog this dang smart. He learned to fetch on our first go… although sometimes we play by “Charlie” rules which means that he’ll bring bony, (his toy) just out of my reach enticing me into a game of chase. He also knows every single one of his toys..by name. So if I say, “go get bunny” he’ll run and find his bunny toy or if I say,” go get froggy” he’ll run and find his froggy toy etc, etc. He was a dream to housebreak.
Make no mistake, these little guys are packed full of energy and will NOT get their needed exercise out of a simple game of fetch…unless it’s XGames fetch. Which for us, means going to the grassy lot across the street where Charlie can run non-stop at full throttle as I throw his fetching toy as far & as hard as I can. It’s impossible for me to stay depressed around this little guy….and I LOVE HIM the most for that. Even when he naps he naps right by the front window (his favorite spot) where he can be aware of EVERYTHING that goes down in our house. My Jack Chi has the color & markings plus the personality and energy of a Jack Russell with the ears, eyes, pointy muzzle, curled up tail and spindly back legs of a Chihuahua.
My Jack Chi has brightened up my life in more was than I ever thought possible.

I use to have a chi-winnie named spike I had him for 18 yrs. He was wonderful. He passed away from a heartache five yrs ago. A mix breed are just as lovable as a full breed. I have a Chihuahua now plus a pit mix and these to love each other. Thunder the pit mix protects his little brother poncho. Like I said mix breeds ate wonderful.

I had a Boston Pit, and it passed away. We miss her so much. Does anyone know how I could get another 1/2 Pit 1/2 Boston Terrier? People would stop us all the time and ask where we got a miniature pit bull. I’d explain that it was a mix. Miss her like crazy, val Arturi [email protected]

I love Chihuahuas. I have a Chihuahua that I rescued. She was scared of everyone when I got her. Her owner would kick her with steel-toed boots. It’s a miracle he didn’t kill her. Now she is spoiled rotten. She has clothes, coats, sweaters, little boots, hats (she hates the hats LOL). SHE HAS ALL KINDS OF TOYS.

Tina Chavez

It’s awful to see a beautiful ancient breed like the chihuahua and other breeds being mixed like this, it’s just awful. Who knows what will happen to these breeds down the line and the harm it will cause.

Judy A Hummel

The pictures of these “designer breeds” as they’re called now and sell for enormous amounts of money are adorable BUT when you crossbreed there is no quarantine what each individual pup will look like and what it will look like when it’s grown. When I was growing up and 2 dogs of different breeds had puppies they were called mutts and you gave them away. Does the AKC accept any of these “breeds”? Because I have a deerhead chi and it upsets me they are not recognized by the AKC. They are chi’s just like the apple head.

Our good little boy Gizmo our Min Chin is suffering from a back injury. He is the best dog we have. He is a rescue and has stolen our hearts. Do you know of any rescues in Kansas that we could possible adopt from? A life without a Min Chin is not one I want to go back to! Doxo

Get ready for high energy dogs that are hard to house break. I adopted two chihuahua mixes. Very cute and loving but also high maintenance and crazy compared to my other dogs. Every other day they don’t recognize my husband and act like he’s an intruder and want to attack him. Cute but not a breed for everyone, lol!!

Chihuahuas certainly have strong personalities! Thanks for reading, Karen.

I had a pure breed Chihuahua for 8yrs, till he passed. 2yrs later I was given a Jack Chi (Jack Russell/Chihuahua) as a gift from an ex. I never had any problems house training either one. I actually used to joke that It was almost as if they house trained themselves because it happened so quick. My first little guy didn’t have a doggie door so he actually had to let me know when he wanted to go out to potty (we have a completely fenced in yard) but with my Jack Chi we installed a doggie door for him so he came in and out at will. Also, “accidents” were very, very rare, maybe only a couple of times in a lifetime and only happened during cold rainy weather and always right next to his doggie door….but that’s just my experience.
