Default Should chi,s come in pairs?

Hi everyone, I,m now looking for another chi, or two, been waiting for Charchi to recover fully from his patella opp.So i was wondering because i would love three all up, but would like to know, if two is company, and threes a crowd, so to speak? I know some of u have three, and would like to know if u have three, do two chis ever gang up on the other? and i would like another male and female, so would have two males i female. Do u think this would be ok? thanks -janet.

How exciting to be adding to your family, I have one of each but often look after my daughters Chi mix who is male. The three of them get on very well although Bella the smallest of the the lot is definitely the boss, she keeps the boys in order.

I have two of opposite sexes, and I also often have another male and female at my place, all the Chihuahua's get along wonderfully.

Don't start me about NON Chihuahua's in my house though... the chis become a band of mean little stalkers.. ha ha

Yeah, i cant wait now, my little man is well and trully ready for a little playmate-or two he, he, he , just want to make sure there was no probs with having three, i dont want two picking on the other, or never letting one play with them,otherwise i would settle for just two.

We have 3 and it's great! But I had only two for about 3 years and then we got Leo at the end of March. I would be worried that the two new puppies may leave your boy out if they come home together, but I'm not sure? This is just my opinion. Either way, how exciting!!! Be sure to show us what you find!

Two is a good number but we had no problem with 3...or even 4. After the fifth it got a bit crazy but....I think it also has to do a lot with temperament & pack dynamics of who you have as well. It doesn't have much to do with a certain number.

I agree with this. When we bought Mercedes (our latest chi pup purchased to keep our Chi X company after his companions passed away) we were offered to take her brother too. We were very tempted but ultimately thought that introducing two puppies from the same litter could mean they would bond with each other more than our existing dog. I think we made the best choice to just get the one pup. You can always add another at a later stage
