Default So where did you get your Chi?

I'm sure this has been done plenty of times before, but I'm on mobile and can't get Past the first page, so I hope it's all right.

Where did you get your Chihuahua?
For those of you who got them from a breeder, did you have to drive a ways?
Has anyone got them from online? How did you know it wasn't a scam?

We got Leila from the Humane Society, and we're gettIng her a little sister probably from a breeder who lives in town. We're going over hopefully tOmorrow to meet her and her parents and my husband will make a decision then.
I was just curious about you guys

Odie came from a breeder, who is a family friend of my best friend. My friend offered to drive from Jasper (Alberta) to Calgary to pick up Odie and she had her for a week and then we drove to meet her halfway in BC (around 3 hours). The breeder is now a Facebook friend and she always likes and comments on my photos of Odie and is around to give advice anytime I need it. If we ever welcome another dog into our family, I would like it to be a rescue, but I would have to be pretty sure it was pure chihuahua, since I'm allergic to most other breeds and have asthma.

I got my first chi from a breeder from far from were I live, and she turned out to be sick from word go and was way too lil, the breeder lied to me she looked bout 5weeks, n she cost me 900 + vet bills. She ended up dying and Was the saddest thing iv had to go threw, I never got my money back and I'd only had her for a week. So that was a bad experience. But now iv got another chi, and she only cost me 300 and she is healthy n happy. And I got her from a breeder closer to me.

As I've mentioned before I got Rolo in completely the wrong way. My husband found a website, I went " I want that one", the breeder showed me him via Skype then we drove to the other end of the country to get him! I am soooooooo lucky that didn't backfire on me and I got a good one! It was the first website we looked at as we'll! I'm an idiot!

I got tiny from a non-profit org that ran an all animal santuary. I saw her and got her at petsmart, it was unexpected. As for penny, i got her through a breeder who was 4 hrs away but met him halfway.

Kristal, I'm so very sorry you had to go through something that horrible! I'm glad that Lolly is healthy--she sure is a little cutie.

We have a 9 year old toy poodle (a gift from generous friends, after a particularly difficult time in our lives) and a 1 year old yorkie-poo (who we rescued from our local humane society), but I found myself really wanting to add a chihuahua to our furry family, after learning how affectionate and devoted they are. So I went back, on my last birthday (29) , to our local HM, but they didn't have any chis available for adoption. I then drove an hour+ to a different humane society in a larger city, and that's where I met Chica. I spent time with a couple of other chihuahuas there as well, but I knew Chica was the one as soon as we interacted. I just loved her mix of snuggly affection and curious independence, and I still do.
