Default no deerheads?

I just finished reading another post informing others that there was no such thing as a teacup chihuahua. Someone there mentioned the term "Deerhead". Friday was given to me as a gift and presented as a "Deerhead", the person explaining the lack of protruding forehead and difference in eyes. I just took that to be the truth, so that's what I was telling people when they asked. Is that incorrect? Here's a picture of her. Not that it matters to me (I see her as a baby anyway!), but I just don't want to pass along incorrect information.

There is no such thing as a "teacup" chi...that word is just a marketing tool to entice people into thinking they are buying a "special" or "rare" type of chi.

i have learned from people on this forum that "deerhead" and "appledome" are two different structures of a chi's head. "appledome" being accepted by the AKC, and "deerhead" not being accepted (at least i think thats what the AKC website says, i'm sorry if i'm wrong). my chi is a "deerhead." i think it's just a way to describe a certain feature about the chi.

I hate it when people selling/breeding Chi's use the word "teacup", it is so mean to make someone spend all that extra money when they are simply selling people lies!

I cant really tell by the picture what kind of head structure Friday has but she sure is cute!

By the way, Welcome

Yael

well think about if you have one of each parent and the one type isnt predominant on the newborn then sure you can say apple-deerhead..... Sounds good to me.

hehe i know paris is an applehead ...and cosmo 's a deerhead for sure ;;; but i'm not sure about vienna somebody said here on the forum she had a great applehead but i'm not convinced. all of my three baby's have different heads ...so to make it easy i call her an apple-deerhead for now maybe when she's fully grown i can say better ......

kisses nat
