Default Looking for a Chihuahua

I am looking for a Chihuahua (puppy or rescue) in the KY-TN-OH area. I have no preference of sex, age, color, or color pattern. This dog will be a pet, no Champion bloodlines necessary. Am willing to pay up to $200. I know this may seem cheap for a good quality puppy, but as I said it will be a pet and not used for breeding, stud services, or showing of any kind. An older dog from a rescue organization is great too. If anyone has any puppies or adults for sale or can give me any information I would gReAtLy appreciate it! If anyone would like more information about me,my family, etc. before giving me info, just let me know! Thanks!

Default finding a chihuahua

Good luck brittany, thats a very cheapo price. the shots for the puppy cost that much and to raise it, with shortcuts can only be a nightmare.. think carefully, as you get what you pay for in this breed. Best of luck!!

There are several people where I live who are hobby breeders and do not charge thousands of dollars for puppies. I think that breeding puppies should not be a method of paying paying bills and making a living but rather a labor of love for the breed...a hobby. I believe that $200-$300 dollars is not a "cheapo price" but rather the price set by a responsible breeder who isn't out to "get rich quick" by making their prices un affordable.

Hey Brittany

I just want to say thank you for considering to adopt a rescue. I think that there are so many wonderful Chi pups in shelters and rescue that deserve a second chance at a happy life. I think that a rescue Chi will be perfect for your lifestyle. You are looking for a furry companion to share your lap with. I found a place in Fraklin, KY that you might be interested in. I hope that this helps you as you start your search for the perfect little Chi. I will also keep my eye out for any other rescue groups in those areas, and keep you informed. Again, thank you for considering to adopt from a rescue. All of us volunteers appreciate it very much.

Here is the link to the rescue in KY http://members.tripod.com/little_fee...cue/index.html

Good Luck!!!

Default chihuaha cost to raise

Brittany,
Although you might think 200 is a reasonable price an you deserve to get a good Chihuahua dog for that, I can assure you that that is not way a person can register, dna, and vaccinate a litter of healthy Chihuahua pups from a champion pedigree and sell them for dollars. I didn't say anything neagative to you just that the price was cheap. Your not gong to ge a show quality animal at hat price. ssuming that greed is the motive of show breeder is completely erroneous. It's your choice to buy a cheap dog. Thre is a market for mixed brees as well as a market on the other end of the price continuum for show quality pets. But I can guarantee you a breeder who is showing/breeding select breeding AKC champion (titled)stock will have no way to sell a dog at that price.Even the shipping costs more than that. Breeding for a hobby is a money profit business.Breeding show dogs as a hobby is not. The entry fees, gas, parking, grooming and care of a well card for show dog is extremely expesive and no money is ever made off show dogs even no matter if they run 3500. A person breeding mixed breeds and selling their dogs 200 a piece at 7 weeks old can make much more money than anyone who cares to hold on to their dog,till age 7-12 months old, selecting out the show prospects, weeding out pet qualit, and guarantees them(all) as healthy, gives all puppy shots,wormings,rabies shot and grooming, training etc, tests, and championship titles and da the parent. Believe me, there is no profit motive of profit on a price of 2500 nd up etc. on a show quality dog that is asking price of 3500. It takes thousands of dollars to campaign a dog to it's tiltle and by the time it isall said and done, there was absoutely no money made. I have records to prove this...Breeding dogs is not a hobby, showing dogs is the hobby. Just breeding them and selling them at 200 dollars at 7 weeks before any shots are needed, no time is spent an no reserh done by showsetc on the stck, is pure profit. If someone profits,its a pet breeder, not a show breeder, for example, say, 200 dollars on each pup at 250 per sale, and a show breeder profit nothing on a dog at 3500, after 1-2 years of care , training, vet etc etc, then who is profiting?? The hobby show person has not profitted at all, just the pet quality breder. But the hobby show person's animals will be alot closer to the AKC breed expectations which we call the AKC breed standard. Shw people won't sell breeding stck topet breeders and they limit the AKC papers on pets or spay and neuter, so things are not going to change on this either. Like I said have fun with your dog you buy or rescue for 2-300 dollars. Even rescue here charges 250 for a pup.

I fully understand what you are saying and I didn't mean for you to have to take defense. I accept that people who breed show quality dogs and have champion sired puppies will charge thousands of dollars for puppies with the intent that the pups will be shown and bred. Because it takes preparation and time and money more so than for that of just a normal pet they do have the right to. I only mentioned the price range to express the point that I wanted a pet, I don't require champion bloodlines and I don't have to have show quality. That really doesn't matter to me as far as the quality of a puppy. Sorry if you misunderstood.
Brittany

i guess its a very good point to beware of ne one who seems to be breeding soley for profit. As theese people will breed dogs even if they have gentical disorders or poor temperaments, they probably wont spend enuff time with the puppies as people who breed for profit often will have a house full of dogs. so the puppy u will get will be unsocialised and unhealthy
so when you find a breeder make sure u ask alot of questions, the two important things when looking for a pet quality puppy is health and temperament!
i hope you find your chi baby soon! please keep us updated on your search!

Hi Brittany. I have just joined the forum and I have a couple of 3 week old pups available, and a 4 month old pup, all males. I live in Middle Tennessee and my prices are very reasonable. If you would email me at
mamajchis@heatoftn.net , we can discuss this farther.
