Chihuahua mixed breeds are some of the cutest hybrid dogs there are. You only need to look up some pictures and ask current Chihuahua hybrid owners to know that these little cuties are great additions to any growing homes.
Some people ask, why do people like cross breeding Chihuahuas? Well- have you ever seen one? These dogs are adorable! As with all cross breeds, the offspring will get many of the traits that their parent has and Chihuahua mixed breeds not only inherited their parent cute gene, they have other great qualities as well.
Chihuahuas are the smallest canine there is. This doesn’t mean they are weak though. They are actually the oldest breed in America so you know they are sturdy little things that can thrive in almost any environment. While they originated from Mexico (hence the name), they are appreciated by pet owners from all over the globe. There are long coated Chis and short coated ones and they are both average shedder, which may pose as a problem to some allergic individuals.
Now, just because Chihuahuas are tiny, you shouldn’t let them get away with things that a larger dog cannot do. For example, if a big dog jumps on you, of course you discipline and correct them, but sometimes people don’t think much of it when Chihuahuas do. After all, how much damage can a 5 lb dog do, right? While you may not be injured, this type of behaviour will be detrimental to them in the years to come. They will become aggressive and harder to train. If you do decide to get a Chihuahua or a mixed Chihuahua breed, it is important that you keep these training tips in mind.
