Luckily, I have yet to meet anyone with a negative outlook about my dogs, or the breed in general.

My security guard calls Tifa a squirrel, but he means it in the best of intentions lol!

Everyone at High Park where we regularly take them also love them, and although they are surprised to see them happily playing along side the big dogs, I haven't heard anyone make any ignorant or farfetched comments.

Most people I encounter are very curious and open to being educated about them.

I myself, call them Mexican Pit Bulls all the time in good humor! <3

Default Breed discrimination questions

I have have my sweet foster dog for one week today. When I tell people about her they have very discriminatory comments to share. I even told the vet how snuggly and affectionate she was and she said, "That doesn't sound like a Chihuahua." Most people comment on how yappy she must be, this dog rarely yaps at all. Just three or four barks when someone knocks on the door. I have been told to not even bother to try and train her not to growl at strangers because "all Chihuahua's do that."

So my question is, what are the traits that really are specific to most Chi's that may be just to hard to train away in the short time we will have Jenna? I didn't plan on trying to teach her not to shake (although she rarely does that.). I am focusing on potty training, not growling at people, and the basic commands like sit, stay, and come. Oh also, the "don't climb on the table" command .

Thanks!

This thread is from 2010. Try starting your own thread instead of resurrecting an old thread, you'll get better advice.

before i started reading up on chi's, really after i got this guy because i had no intention of ever getting one. i just thought they were "ankle biters" and all they do is yap. and they were the dogs for the stuck up rich people. stupid thinking i know, but that was my thinking before i got on this forum. even after i got him. but after i got on this forum and read up on them, and had yoda for a few days my ideas changed so much.

My husband wasn't thrilled when I brought Winnie home 3 months ago and with my training and her loving him, he has totally turned around, he had her little 3 lb self in his lap the other night
He had so preconceived notions
