Default My new Merle baby

My first Chihuahua Stable passed away last Tuesday at the young age of 8 months due to live failure Today I decided to go to the pound and find a lost little soul that needs a home. I was about to leave then I come to the last kennel and there he is. A 5 year old "chunky" blue merle chihuahua on the e-list because of his weight problem and his bad/missing teeth. Any way Lon story short I have a new baby boy named spike! He is so cute and sweet he looks like a teacup cattle dog lol.

Thank you I'm so excited to have Spike. He is so shy he only will come to me of the other dogs are in my face and want my attention. he is also extremely over weight. I took him to the vet and she said he needs to lose 9-10 pounds he should be the size of my other Chihuahua Cowboy around 7-8 pounds not 17! Does any one have any experience with much weight loss in Chi's?

Wow 17 lbs. my Bailey's weight is up and down. He was just 8.4 lbs the last time he was weighed. I put him on a diet, basically cut his portions and cut treats out of his diet completely.

Now that he is in a new home, on good food, getting regular walks the pounds may fall away naturally. I would personally go with a smaller volume of the regular food, the healthy weight formulas tend to try to fill with stuff, in my opinion it is often better to go with less of a high quality food.

He is adorable by the way! I am sure he is happy you rescued him
