Several Varieties Of The Chihuahua Mixed Breeds

Sep 9, 2008
When you are planning to buy a designer puppy, and would be interested in one of the Chihuahua mixed breeds, you should be careful to buy it from a reliable dog breeder. A good dog breeder knows how to cross breeds, as he matches their characteristics to make designer puppies and cross breed dogs. He should be extremely well informed about the breeds that he is matching, especially their genetics and any common problems associated with the breed. Only then can he be sure that the designer puppies will be long-lived, healthy and intelligent.

Of course there are certain problems that the dog breeder can face. For example, the dogs may not be 100% purebred, which reduces the authenticity of the match. The new designer puppy could then be a product of a multi generation cross. The American Canine Hybrid Club has published a list of hybrid crosses of purebred dogs. Amongst the list of the Chihuahua mixed breeds, the Chiranian, is the most common one, which is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Pomeranian.

Buy your designer puppy only from a well-known dog breeder. He should be able to offer healthy, home-raised and well-socialized puppies. Common cross breeds with the Chihuahua, which the American Canine Hybrid Club recognizes, consists of about fifteen breeds. The Chihuahua with the Dachshund is called the Chiweenie and with the Jack Russell Terrier the breed is called Jack Chi. The cross between a Chihuahua and a Japanese Chin is the Chin-wa and that with a Maltese is the Malchi.

Chipin and Chion are the names of the cross breeds of MinPin and Papillon with the Chihuahua. The cute name of Cheeks is the cross with the Pekingese and Chug is the hybrid cross with the Pug. The Rat Terrier and the Toy Fox Terrier crossed with the Chihuahua give birth to the Rat-Cha and the Taco Terrier. The Shih Tzu, when crossed with the Chihuahua is the ShiChi and the Yorkshire Terrier with the Chihuahua becomes the Chorkie. The Poodle and the Chihuahua have been named the Wapoo.

When a responsible dog breeder selects two breeds to crossbreed, his ultimate goal is hybrid vigor. In other words, when two breeds are paired together and genetic diversity is added, some inherent problems in one or both breeds can be bred out as in Chihuahua mix breeds. This is relevant especially for health problems, and the newly bred dog is healthy and long-lived.

When there is cross breeding, such as with a Chihuahua mix, the puppy has the characteristics of both breeds. It is the job of the dog breeder to make an idealistic match, so that the new breed turns out to be healthy and can enjoy a long life. So it is hybrid vigor that each dog breeder is looking out for.

A cross breed of a poodle and a Chihuahua will give you a healthy, intelligent dog which is also playful and lovable. The first two traits belong to the Poodle and the last two to the Chihuahua and is one of the favorites of the Chihuahua mixed breeds.

Basically the intention of cross breeding is hybrid vigor. The dog breeder wants to bring out the best of each breed and tries out the best combinations. Health and long life are important for the dog, because that is what a dog owner is looking for. As a dog, the Chihuahua is very playful and extremely lovable. It is very attached to its master and the attachment sometimes borders on jealousy. Each dog owner has to spend enough time with the dog, so that it also feels loved and wanted.
