  1. Three Brown Dogs

    Dog Pictures Forum
    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...

  5. Perfectly Imperfect Rescue Dog

    Attention All New Members
    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...

  7. Switched to raw for 5lb chihuahua, seeing immediate results???

    Dog Food Forum
    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...
  8. Territorial Chihuahua with baby on the way

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

    Dog Training Forum
    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...

    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...

  19. So, not hitting my dog = spoiling my dog! (VENT + seeking advice)

    General Dog Forum
    I just wish the idea that you need to hit your dog in order to be a good owner would just die already! That and that chihuahuas are an odious little hellspawn breed. These two bad notions combined have brought me much grief with my otherwise wonderful boyfriend. I believe in positive...
