What Is My Chihuahua Mixed With?

July 8, 2014

small brown and white dogMy little puppy is almost five months old. He's grown so fast from when we first got him. He has also gotten a lot darker from the first day we got him. We know he's mixed because everyone tells us he is, but we just do not know with what.

He probably isn't mixed with anything! He looks like a pure bred Chi to me. Many people have a preconceived notion of what a Chi is supposed to look like and any that deviate from their notion simply must be mixed with something else.

The fact is that Chihuahuas come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. There is two pound Chis and 12 pound Chis, apple heads and deer heads, tall slender Chis and short stocky Chis. The "original" Chihuahua that came from Mexico these many years ago looked very different from today's Chihuahuas.

Breeders have made them even smaller than they already were. They have tried to breed in the round "apple" head and the "bug" eyes because people thought that was cuter. The fact is that only the show dogs really look like the show standard any way.

I love Chihuahuas and have had Chis since I was 12 years old. I am not a breeder, I could never go that route. But I do know Chihuahuas. I have a brindle Chihuahua which admittedly is not a common Chi color. And she is a larger Chi at around 9 pounds. I know that she is 100% Chihuahua but I don't have to prove it to anybody. LOL

I have had people that I don't even know ask what she is mixed with. Its none of their business, so I usually tell them that she is half Chi and half Pit Bull. I don't even think that would be possible, but some probably believe me. LOL

Don't worry about "IF" your baby is mixed or "WHAT" he might be mixed with and just enjoy your beautiful little one.

I bought my beautiful baby girl from a lady who said she is a chihuahua mix. I think she said terrier but she runs like a greyhound and is remarkably fast.

I think she is mixed with greyhound, what you think?

There is one dog that is called an Italian greyhound which is actually what people call a greyhound chihuahua mix. When I see the photos of this dog it sure looks a lot like your dog.

The actual name for this dog is talian Greyhuahua. This dog can live up to 15 years and is a great dog.

I agree she looks like Italian Greyhound, she is taller than a Chihuahua, and her features are unique to a Italian greyhound. This dog is a smaller version of regular size Greyhound, therefore making her a very fast and energetic dog. Here is some history on this lovely dog .- www.petfinder.com/.../ - en.wikipedia.org/.../italian_greyhound

I do not believe the picture gives a good enough profile to really tell very much but generally a Chiweenie's ears fold over towards the front and I cannot tell about that from this picture. To form a good opinion, pictures should show the full side profile so you can see the shape of the body and the tail. Also a full face picture with normal posture showing full face, head and ears.

How old is she/he - how tall - weight?
Your pup definitely has plenty of Chihuahua and that makes her a loving little dog.

You can always purchase a DNA test kit and find out for sure as well as lots of information about any future health problems to look out for. DNA kits can be purchased online, pet stores or the vet and usually cost from $45 - thousands according to how in depth you wish to go.
Most important is to be sure she has all of her shots/vaccinations to protect her from the diseases floating around.

What a sweet little face and those ears! I just want to scratch those sweet fuzzy ears!!

I see mostly Chihuahua in your little guy!! Have you asked your vet to check out his teeth, jaw, hips and bone structure and give you an idea.

Wishing you a lovely history together!! Hugs!

In order to tell what the dog is really mixed with they should be around 8 to 12 months old. The first 2 years the dog changes so much. From the images, you have shown us here it is really hard to say one way or the other.

I do see a lot of chihuahua in him for sure but when he grows a bit more it will be easier to see the other breed of dog he is mixed with.

I have a 13 week old puppy who weighs 2.6 pounds. I was told she is a long haired Chihuahua, but her ears are floppy so I know she isn't full Chihuahua.

I have to say that due to the soft white of the hair he almost looks like he has Maltese in him

Here's some fun sites with great questionnaires to see what she might be: pethelpful.com/.../breeds-in-mutt

acovant.com/mutt.html

of course to truly see what sort of dog she is, a vet's attention, and possibly a DNA test, are the only way to tell.

I'll take her! She is adorable! Years ago we had a pure bred long haired Chihuahua and she sure looks like him - but there are several breeds that have some of the same characteristics, even Pomeranians.
As you can tell by the answers, not many agree on the same mix so the only sure way is to pay ($100.00) for a DNA test.
You may want to spend that money if you plan on breeding her but if you just want to know - then maybe one of these sites can give you a better idea. You just upload a photo and most of the time the answers are pretty spot on.
If nothing else - do it for fun.

I have 3 small dogs. They are all rescues and I was told the black is full chiuauaua, and the other two are chiuauaua mix? What do you think? They are all probably less than 10lbs.

I see more pug in this sweet baby than anything so perhaps it is a Chug (Chihuahua Pug mix).

If that is the case, be sure to establish good vet care for your baby as Pugs have a whole host of respiratory issues that require regular medical look sees to keep them healthy!

What a sweet face!!! Perhaps the vet can give you the best guess by looking at teeth, hips, bones etc.

Thanks for sharing that adorable baby with me!!
