Thank you so much! What an excellent point!! Wow! My older girl, she just sits back annoyed at the two younger ones always play, though she jumps in to play occasionally! So hopefully bringing another spayed older female will even it out. I'm really relieved to see all this positive feedback!

I thought she would be a jealous nightmare with my chiweenie pup but she took to him instantly. Now they have a great bond and the dogs tend to pair up and play (I think the older 2 are secretly relieved that Heidi plays with Alfie so much so they dont have to!LOL).

I have 4 chi's mischa 4yrs, bazza 6 yrs and two disable twins mira and kelvin who have wheelchair I see it this way if you can deal with one chi you can deal with 3 or 4 or more just takes longer,.i rescued mira and kelvin in june they were scheduled to be euthinised as previous owner passed away very ill and lots of bladder infections from dragging little bodies along the ground and I also work with swans and their baby cygnets and rescue and rehome other chi's and surprise surprise my boyfriend was not watching mischa and bazza and bam she is now 6 weeks pregers.I find taking in mira and kelvin really helped bazza he was badly treated before I rescued himand now he plays he loves walks and it has helped him deal with his problems he is a totally different chi, even the vet says he has life in his eyes since we rescued him .

I have only one chi, one golden, and one cat. I would love another chi but I have 2 concerns. One is that Angel's "nastiness" might rub off on another one (oh, the things he oes our golden!) and the other one is expense. I don't expect anything to happen to any of them, but I don't know that I could afford it financially if it did! And then there's the cat - she hides because she is afraid of Angel and if she gets too stressed she loses fur on her ears!

Who knows what the future will bring! Maybe someday I will "stumble" on one!

I have 5 and they all get along just fine now. I had a bit of alpha issues when my new one came in but they worked it out and now do fine now. So the only thing may be a bit of alpha issues if the new dog wants to try, but they will work it out and everyone will be in their places in a short time.

I have two chihuahuas, a chi/yorkie mix, a pomeranian, and the "big dog" a Lab/beagle mix. All of the tiny dogs are female. Lacey is 2 years old and likes to think, she is alpha but for the most part is pretty laid back and relaxed. Though occasionally she feels the need to play the fun police if the others are playing too rough. Osha is 4 years old and is a puppymill rescue. She is very very timid. I have noticed though that she can be exposed to more with her "pack" and she handles it much better than when she is alone. All of my dogs help her on some level. Lacey has taught her how to be brave and confident, Faye has taught her how to play and function like a dog really should. I truly believe if Osha was a only dog in the house she would still be that extra fragile shell of a dog. Faye is a 1 year old Chi/yorkie and is everything you would expect that mix to be. Tenacious, hard headed, energetic, little ball of love and life. She was the 5th and final addition to my family and she brought a breath of life with her. Lacey, Osha, and Honey (4 lb Pom) all lived walks and exercise but none had much interest in playing. But Faye came in and pushed and pushed each of them until they each would wrestle and play with her. She brought fun, young, friendly energy into our home and changed everything for the better. Believe it or not we have been lucky enough *knock on wood* to have no fights or issues of that nature. Occasionally Lacey and Faye will get growly with each other, but that is only if Faye is pestering asleeping Lacey. Or they both get possessive over an item. But it never escalates and it is every once in a blue moon. Yes I live in a small home and it can be overwhelming at times. But in my case the good far out weighs the bad
