What Breed Is My Dog?

Vet seems to think "but is not sure" that my dog that I bought as a long haired chihuahua may be a cross with a jack russell terrier .Can I have your thoughts please? She has been with us roughly 4/5 months.

From loking at photos online of Long-haired Chihuahua/Jack Russell mixes, I think your vet is probaby correct in identifying those 2 breeds in your dog. One thing is certain, she is abolutely adorable!

She looks like a Long haired Chihuahua , as well as Chihuahua/ Jack Russell mix. Here are a few to look at , She has similar looks. www.bing.com/.../search?q=chihuahua+and+jack+russell.... Also have pictures of Long Haired Chihuahua's, looks like she could be among this group as well. The only way to know for sure is through DNA -www.bing.com/.../search?q=pictures+of+long+hair+chihuahua....

Thanks Ana im thinking shes more long haired chi by the day, with maybe a smidgen of something else, shes getting so hairy and fluffy and a proper chi tail, im guessing i will have to maybe wait a few months to tell for sure, she certainly turns a few heads when we are out walking.

What a cutie! Your pup does look like she has some long haired Chi and Jack Russell. www.google.com/search?sxsrf=ALeKk01lZ6eBcGue2koHYKPLBcPsxpguvw...
If you want to have a DNA test done for your pup, there are some here that have good reviews:

She is probably a mix but definitely has a lot of Chihuahua; more than any other breed. She has the ears and facial flags of the long haired Chihuahua and some short flags on her legs but since I cannot see her body it's difficult to tell about flags on her body and tail especially. Her face is Chi and that is why she is so cute!

You will be able to tell more about her features as she matures a little more. Her personality and temperament should give you a few clues also. If she has very much Jack Russell background she will be more hyper and her body will be less fragile and a little more stocky. More Jack Russell and she will be taller and weigh more than the Chi normally does.
The Jack Russell chihuahua mix weight is usually anywhere between 8 and 18 pounds, depending on which parent they take after the most, as well as their gender. The height is around 15 inches.
You can always check out sites online to see how she progresses and how she changes and maybe relates more in breed direction.

The most important thing you can do for your baby is to complete all of her shots/vaccinations and since you mentioned her vet then hopefully she is in good hands.

She is adorable - I have had 2 'true bred' long haired Chi's (one was from a champion mother but they were gifts to me and my daughter so price I did not know.
Generally their tail will curl over their back and 'flags' will hang down over their body.
They also will have flags hanging everywhere and if from a true bred they will kinda prance instead of the normal walk/run of other dogs.
It doesn't matter how much Chi she has as she looks Chi through and through.
If you get her DNA and it does not match the seller's description you might get some of your money back but a DNA test is nice to have just because....

I have to agree with your vet on this one. She does look like she has some jack Russell terrier mixed in with her. When people sell dogs and claim they are one breed they should produce you with the bloodline of the dog if you paid a good price for this dog. Many breeders now just breed dogs and sell them off for a more expensive breed when they are mixed. No matter what she is adorable and you should have years of love and fun with your new pet.

Thankyou for your reply, yes you are right i dropped the ball with my purchase of Honey, i paid 1400 for a long haired chihuahua puppy, i should have been more aware but now ive got her i wouldnt change her for the world she is amazing, but yes still annoying that people feel the need to cheat and lie to you, someone would have bought her as a jack chi.. i dont understand why they would lie. Thanks again.
