When our son brought her home to us, she was 5 weeks old in a shoe box.

Her last weight was 4.8lbs and she'll never get any bigger.

However, when strangers come around, you can hear her bark a block away!

My wife is Mexican and grew up thinking dogs were just there as guards. She never dreamed of hold and caressing one. Now, she loves our little girl as if she were one of her children - all grown now.

She's had a little skin and hair problem but I started a new supplement about a week ago and can already see results.

We'd like her to have a litter before spaying her and just hope we can find a male here in Las Vegas that is suitable.

There are no health benefits to her having a litter before spaying her and there are so many puppies in this world needing homes, if she's already got skin and hair problems she's prob not the best bitch to breed from considering they may be hereditary, why don't you get her spayed and just enjoy her as a pet. I think she's a little small to have puppies too, it could prove very dangerous for her health.

If she has skin and hair problems you don't want to breed her as there is a chance it is heridatory meaning you will produce a litter that could show the same problems. Unless you're keeping the pups you'll have a few upset people after you if they have lots of problems!

Oh shes just beautiful!! She has such a nice lavender color, I have a blue chi who also has skin problems aswell. The vet confirmed she has alopecia and demodex mange. The mange is not contagious but it causes her hair to thin, after expensive and overwhelming treatment for 9 months she looks "normal". I still have to buy special shampoos and dips monthly to prevent it from thinning again, also the vet recommended to spay her since having her cycle will stress her and cause her immune system to go down and she will loose hair. The thought of my girl Nina having a litter unimaginable since both skin conditions are generational meaning theres a high chance most if not all puppies would have skin problems too. When I asked my vet why I rarely saw dogs with hair thinning like mine, she said it was because people put them down. I was shocked, but I know its true. Its a sad reality, since you have such a beautiful girl!! I can see why you would want more puppies like her, im sure shes unique! I just ask that you think about it, I know its tempting she has such a beautiful coat.

Would love to see more pics of this pretty girl.
I can only imagine how bonded you are after raising her from 5 weeks.
