Chihuahua Thread

Official PbNation Chihuahua Thread

This thread is for the discussion of the Chihuahua breed.

The Chihuahua is a small toy sized dog. The Body is longer than it is tall. The head is well rounded, apple in shape and the muzzle is short and pointed with a well defined stop. Puppies sometimes have a soft spot called a molera, which usually closes by adulthood.

The breed has a rep as an accessory dog or that owning a Chi somehow revokes ones man card, these are misconceptions as the Chihuahua is a lively and fun loving dog. They are extremely loyal to their owners and are very intelligent, but some can be stubborn and hard to train. The key is early socialization which tends to create a more calm and relaxed Chihuahua.

Common health problems are rheumatism, slipped stifle, colds and gum problems. Also their eyes are prone to dryness and secondary glaucoma. They also tend to gain weight easily and can become diabetic if they are not exercised well to shed the extra weight. Because of their short snouts, Chi`s tend to snore or wheeze. Some are born with or develop Thyroid issues which can effect weight gain and thickness of their coat.

Despite their small size, Chihuahuas need regular exercise. This allows them to burn off extra energy and helps stimulate their mental and emotional wellbeing.

All-in-All the Chihuahua is a great breed and they make loving companion dogs. If you ever need advice regarding ownership of a Chi, please feel free to contact me.

My chi always loves to go for a ride in the car. Every time he hears my keys jingle, he is at the door ready to go.

that must be a chi thing.. once uheard for the door there they are wanting a ride.. my mom had hers for 14 years, then all of a sudden he started making this wierd coughing sound, turned out he had water on the lungs, enlarged heart and some other things that seem to have just popped up over night. she kept on on pills for a few weeks but couldnt stand to see him like that so she had him put down.. i miss that little guy..

I am sorry to hear that

My aunt also had a chi who had some health issues and she was forced to put her down. I cant imagine the day I have to make a decision like that.

i have one named sassy that has the colorings of a rot.. i think she thinks she is one as well but i think its that "little Dog" syndrome haha.. she was "buster's" best friend she seems kind of lonely now and mom wont let me buy her a new dog, at least she says she doesnt want another one.. so i left sassy at my moms so she would have that companionshi or w/e..

Very nice guys! Keep em coming.

Also I have to use certain kinds of shampoo on my Chihuahua. His skin tends to get really dry and some brands of shampoo make it worse.

I am not sure if your dogs have a problem with that, but I found a brand of shampoo for dogs with dry skin and it works great at preventing dryness.

I will give you the name of it when I get back home later on.

Yeah nelly is 5. I notice all chi's like the same stuff, borrowing into blankets, laying down with their bellies up (cause they always want stomach rubs) and car rides, lol.

I'm lucky too cause Nelly is literally the quietest chi (i'd say quietest small dog) i've ever seen. She only barks when someone knocks on the door and even then its only one or two little chirps. other than that she just makes weird little sounds instead of barking.

Rosie, she's big for a chi and her ears don't stand up most of the time. Maybe not pure bred after all, still love her to death.

Cute Chi`s!

Mine also comes to the sound of a chip bag lol.

The shampoo I use for Chico is called Sergeants Fur-so-Fresh. It really helps with his dry skin and keeps his fur really soft.

I've always said that I'd never have a small "rat" dog. My wife and I have had our chi for 3 years now and I love her.

Carley is the chi, and Bailey is the ****zu thing.... Lol
