So, yeah. I just got a Chiweenie pup as a Christmas gift; while I do have a good deal of my own dog experience (several summers volunteering at a local animal shelter, plus a short stint working at another), I have never before encountered the Chiweenie "breed," nor do I know altogether too much about either Dachshunds or Chihuahuas.
So far, no major health problems have emerged - fleas and worms, which are being handled - however, I don't like not having more of an idea of what to be looking for. The internet is very unhelpful with the hybrid itself; I did look up seperate info for Dachshunds and Chihuahuas, but I would feel alot better if someone more experienced with the breed could provide me with some info. ^_^ So far, the only thing I really know for sure is to be careful of his longer spine, since he did get that Dachshund trait.
Thanks in advance!
