Maybe these photos will help you determine what type of chihuahua you have. planetchihuahua.com/chihuahua-dog-breed
I think you may have a Deer-Head Chihuahua.

Your dog looks so much like a Deer-Head Chihuahua to me. I think it could also be mistaken for a short-haired but I would day dear head for sure.

Please tell me, why does it matter? It's a beautiful dog. I would take it in a skinny minute. Sometimes we pay too much attention to detail. And sometimes we misinterpret those details.

I had a pure bred chihuahua. I would have loved her just as much had she been a mongrel.

I had another chihuahua mix. Shortly after I got her, I took her to a vet for a checkup. They asked the dog's name, I said 'Dog'. (I called her dog initially while learning a little about her nature. I decided I would give her a 'real' name later that suited her nature. She came to know her name as 'Dog' and I never changed it).

They also asked what I fed her. I said 'What I eat'. When I got a copy of the bill, it contained a profile on the dog which included her name and diet.

Her name was listed as 'No Name'. I wanted to call them and tell them, 'My dog's name is 'Dog', not 'No Name'. But I didn't.

They listed her diet as 'table scraps'. I wanted to call and tell them I did not eat table scraps. I fed the dog what I ate. For the most part, a nourishing, balanced low fat diet But I didn't.

So much for details.

By the way, calling her 'Dog' was so easy. When I took her for outings, people would ask her name. I would say 'Dog'. They would smile and say 'OK'.

When I took my pure bred for outings, people would ask her name. I would say 'Chiquitita de Chihuahua'. They would reply, 'Say whut'? 'Why such a big, big name for such a tiny dog'?

(I wanted an impressive name for her pedigree records).

So much for details.

My family has had several Chihuahuas - all were lovable dogs but I'm not sure we ever wondered which 'breed' they were.

There are differences of course but most are minor:
Apple Head - has an 'apple shaped' head
Dear Head - has between an apple shaped head and flat head
gets larger than an Apple Head
Short Hair - almost flat head
Long Hair - seems to be a mixture but has long hair

I guess we've had at least one of each and I agree - is there a reason you wish to know the breed?
They are usually all very good companions and need to be loved for just being there.
