This popular Mexican breed can sometimes be mixed with other small dogs to create some very cute companions. This page contains Chihuahua mix photos.
Mighty Molly is a 10 week old Schnauzer/Chihuahua mix. This wee one, likely the runt, had a rough start in her litter. She was picked on by siblings and lost weight from not getting enough to eat. The abuse and stress caused by her litter mates resulted in massive loss of hair as well. The baldness had made all of the fresh bite wounds/scratches and the many scars from old ones all the more apparent.
The owner, maybe thinking she was unadoptable because of looking bad, dumped her at the animal shelter where she was soon put on their euthanasia list. I adopted her from the rescue group who mercifully pulled her out of the animal shelter. They had cared for her over three weeks, bringing her to excellent health.
Molly is a love bug to her new pack; me in my role as Packleader/Mom, my husband as something like an uncle who spoils her, our Mimi the Terrier who outweighs Mo by 34 lbs., our Lulu the Labrador who outweighs her by 52 lbs. and four cats who all outweigh her too. Our amazing Mighty Mo is 2 lbs. of unbridled joy and happiness. One of the four cats has actually turned the tide and is becoming motherly towards the puppy.
Molly loves to chase after the cats, wanting them to play, while the big dogs chase after her, wanting to play. It is a repeating procession, Life is a Parade.

Your Pet's Breed
How and when did you get your pet?
I posted on a Facebook page where animals are in need of a home. Owner contacted me through message and I went and got her that same day. We named her Babygirl Nicole Hale.
What does your pet like to do for fun?
Everything, besides taking a bath. She loves to go outside and catch grasshoppers, loves playing with the kids and going bye bye. She's full of energy and just a ball of fun.
Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
She's energetic, protective and loves her sister and brother. I'm expecting another baby boy so I know she'll love him and protect him just as she does for the others. She's extremely smart, my kids will work with her to sit, give high five, jump, and paw. We are still working with her to roll over. She only took about 2 days to train, the kids and I would give her a piece of maple flavored bacon everytime she went outside to use the bathroom. She learned fast but would also try to trick us. Her favorite food is pizza and turkey and enjoys a nice warm bowl of milk every night, we learned that it actually helps them sleep better and it does. She sleeps with my little girl but sometimes she'll go into our little boy's room in the middle of the night. She enjoys reading time too and also gets her baths at least twice a week if not three. We treat her like our kid cause she is. She loves to tear the cotton out of her stuffed animals and the kids stuffed animals and will try to get inside. She's just an amazing kid and everyday she makes us happy and laugh. Every morning she wakes us all with kisses and she'll make it to all our rooms too. We are so blessed with her, can't have a better dog than her. When I first brought her into the house, I sat her down and she just started to jump around and wagging her little curly tail. It's like she just knew she was home for good. She made me fall in love with dogs and now I want more! I just lover her, she's my babygirl.
Li'l AJ is 12 years old. He is a Maltese/Chihuahua. He was an "accident" down at the campgrounds. His little 4 lb mother decided to take a stroll and back herself up to a Maltese (who was tethered cuz' he had been in trouble) and, Voila!
We moved out to the country, in the middle of Texas. Two dogs were watching my husband from the woods, dropped off strays. He called them over and they were overjoyed and hungry. The next day they came back again. I couldn't deny these 2 devoted friends a forever, safe, fun home off the streets.
We recently had been looking around for a puppy to share our love with and found him through an ad selling Chihuahua puppies. We fell in love and he's now a part of our family!
We got her at 5 weeks old in 2014. We call her Phyllis Dill because her hair gets long and wild.
I got Turbo, when she was 8 weeks old because my son had her for 3 days and couldn't deal with a hyper puppy.
Lil Fella is a 7 year old Japanese Chin/Chihuahua. I got fella 7 years ago when the lady I worked with brought in a box of her adorable puppies her own dog had just had.
Choco is 2 years old. She is a Maltese and Chihuahua mix. My friend was telling me that her neighbor had to return to Thailand, and needed to find a home for his small dog.
I was told that he was a Min Pin, I am thinking he's a chihuahua mix.

Muffin is a chihuahua, but is also mixed with something else, don't know what. Muffin was given to me by my oldest daughter, Michelle. I became disabled and she thought that I needed a pet to keep me company. Boy, was she ever right!
They gave her to us when she was two weeks old. She likes to run around, play with her food, play by herself, and sleep.
Humane Society of El Paso, Texas. He likes to dance, take walks, and play under the covers.
This is my 8 week old puppy. I still do not have a name for him, but considering Mac. Mom is a chiweenie and dad is a Chihuahua. I was told that the dad was a very small Chihuahua. Will my little man be more Chihuahua or chiweenie?
My puppy looks just like yours!!! See, I was told mine was Chihuahua, but had my doubts because he looks mixed! Either way we love him, but I'm so curious, can somebody help me identify him maybe
