    I've never had a Chi before. Is this normal with toy dogs or should I be taking her to the vet? Most guides say that half an hour a day is necessary, like this one, but I'm not sure if that's too much for her. She's about 16 months. Any advice from any Chi parents here?

    I need help figuring out the breed of my pup. Thank you!!! Photos and videos: I know my puppy has some kind of chihuahua in him, but I'm not sure what he's mixed with. He's very fluffy!! The owner who sold him to me said he was a Maltipoo, but now I know that's not the case, and he's...

    So I just got a new dog and he was listed as a pomchi (half Pomeranian and half chihuahua) and we went to see him and he was absolutely gorgeous and I was so in love that I didn’t even think about the fact that he was supposed to be a pomchi. (I also didn’t really know what they were supposed to...

    Our chihuahua is toilet trained to piss and poop outside. Recently he has also been bell trained to ring a bell by the front door to go out to the loo. He’s good at it and will always ring the bell to ask to go out now. This morning I left him downstairs and took a video call without feeding him...

    No matter what I do, I can't seem to potty train my two dogs. They're both 7 year old chihuahuas who live in an apartment and use pee pads, but tend to miss alot and cost me my carpet. Now they're even starting to go in places I never wanted them to go, forcing me to put a pad there. They came...
  7. Dog Health Questions
    This started out as a small black lump, kind of like a pimple, and eventually fell off. It turned into a scab then hair grew over it. The scab came off and now it’s like this. The dog doesn’t seem to be in any pain or discomfort. Anyone see something like this before?

    My family has just gotten two young female chihuahuas. I am new to owning dogs but my partner is not. He has been able to train the dogs to do basic commands like sit and roll over. However, one of them is particularly aggressive towards her sister and towards us. She will attack his sister out...

    We have a 8 year old chihuahua who’s on the obese side. She’s on a normal diet and was fine up until this morning. My mom will take her to the vet tomorrow but we are worried. This morning she’s been lethargic, doesn’t have an appetite, seems to be in pain and yelps if picked up the wrong way...

    I'm new here, and thought I'd visually introduce my dogs! Rusty never leaves my side. He's rather anxious, but very good at reading human emotions. He's the only non-rescue, non-stray dog I've ever had, but he's not from a breeder either: he's an odd story. I was 11 years old, almost twelve...

    Hi, My boyfriend and I adopted a 3 months old chihuahua almost two weeks ago and although he's been potty trained by the breeder he seems to have more and more accidents. At first, he was peeing and pooing on the pad, but for couple of days he's been doing his needs all over the house. He...

    Hello, I have a 2 year old rescue, named Indiana, I think he's a Chihuahua Terrier mix. He's generally super sweet, but can be aggressive. He is very aggressive towards other dogs, whenever he sees one he goes crazy, barking, jumping, lungeing at them. Even though he only weighs 8 lbs, I have...

    Hi all! So I have officially adopted George. He is a 2 year old Chihuahua that was found as a stray. He was pulled from the shelter by a local rescue because he was yappy in his kennel and the rescue didn't think he would be adoptable. Therefore, I don't know much about his upbringing, but he...

    Today I started my Chihuahua, Daphne, on Natures Variety Raw Instinct, after reading that the sodium content and preservatives in commercial kibble can have a greater negative effect on Chihuahuas vs. larger dogs, because of their size. I've had her for a little over three weeks, and...

    I apologize in advance, because this might be a novel, but I feel it's important to give you a feel for our dynamics before I ask for advice. Our situation is this: my husband and I have a pack of dogs- 1 male german shepherd mix (7 y/o), 1 male lab/bassett mix (3 y/o), and 1 female chihuahua...

    My two adult Male cats (both are 4 years old) have only once saw a dog (my former neighbors adult calm pug mix dog). Cat A got freaked out and ran to hide, while Cat B stood his ground and swiped at the dog. My cats are extremely bonded with me and will follow me everywhere and sit in my lap...

    Hi everyone, I have a chihuahua that whines non-stop. He is turning 4 years old, and I've had him since he was a puppy. Even when I first got him, he wouldn't stop whining all the way home. Little did I know that would be a permanent trait of his. I do not give into his whining, I never did...
  20. Dog Grooming Forum
    Our dog's a border terrier/chihuahua mix (I've attached a photo of how she looks like). I used to take her to the local groomer, but they always shave her bald that she looks ends up looking like a hairy kiwi. I know border terrier's have an undercoat and to groom them properly, you need to use...
