Default Conformation forum

This is a very nice board but why is there no chihuahua conformation forum? All breeders should strive to make thier puppies true to breed standard. JMHO. A purebred chihuahua should look like a chihuahua.

Well alot of us rescued............we here love the breed regardless if they look "off" to you............that was not a very good statement to make here . We only have a handful of breeders and they are all GREAT sources here not puppymills or out to make a buck.

You are welcome to start a thread on conformation if you would like - we can always benefit from additional knowledge.

The vast majority of people on this board have Chihuahuas just as pets and companions - we do not show them or breed them, so we aren't too concerned with the conformation. We just love them for who they are.

Wow, 3 moderators against me. When I see a breeders forum I also expect to see a conformation forum for that breed. If you think the Taco Bell dog was a representative for my breed, sorry your wrong. Not even close. It was a good representative for the "millers" and "BYBers". Kind of looked like a rat-terrier-chihuahua cross to me. Deer heads are not breed standard "per say". A chihuahua muzzle should be 1/3 the length of the head with the nose slightly pointed.

I don't think any of us are disputing the things you wrote above - I agree the Taco Bell dog is not a true representation of what the breed is. I have not seen anyone on the board say that they think the Taco Bell is a good example of how a Chi should look, so I am not sure where your comment came from? I know that a "deer head" is not how Chihuahuas are supposed to look, but several people own them on this board and wouldn't trade them for all the money in the world. Some prefer that look despite the fact that it is not the true represenatation of that breed and some own that type of Chi because they are rescues.

Again, I will reiterate - you are welcome to start a thread on conformation. As that thread grows, I can ask Admin to make a whole section for it.

Sorry if we came across as being "against" you. That was not my intention!

I agree with you completly Boogaloo.

Tom as a breeder and shower, I have and as I am sure you have as well, come across those litters that you are breeding for show and one or more of the pups come out not to be a good representaion of the breed. And I also know that there are alot of " backyard" breeders out there trying to make a buck. No matter what your opinoin is they will ALWAYS exsit. You will never stop them.
As in defence of my fellow members, I think what you said will offend most that do have have the "deer" chihuahua and your comment was very unessary. This is not a breeding board, It is a place for all that have
cobby, deer and mixed type of chihuahuas to come and share the love of thier chihuahuas, hopefully without the fear of being attacted by someone telling them their chihuahuas are not a representation of the breed. I am 100% sure that 99.9% of the members here have done their homework on the breed and are well aware of the breed standard. If not, then we try to educate them with there questions. As I can tell by the little beauty you have on your avtar, this is not a show dog and lacks the " breed quailty" but that does not stop you from loving any less

Thanks KJ in fact there is always an edge to Tom's posts and I am getting a tad weary of it!
