Default So she wasn't the one, but...

The same breeder has a litter of 3/4 chihuahuas and 1/2 powderpuff crestie. I don't actually know that is but they look mostly like chihuahuas. She said they tend to be around the same weight and size but a bit more fluffy. Everything will be the same of Cassidy except the papers. Microchip, vaccination, puppy pack and the time and care that is put into them. There is a litter of 8. 4 boys, 4 girls. There is one long haired girl that she will be keeping, one short haired girl and two long haired girls that I am looking at; Lily and Savannah. She has sent me pictures of a past puppy and some adult ones...see below.



All of the ones below are from past litters apart from the second one in the pic of the two sitting up. The one on the right is Cassidy's full chi grandma Dixie. Alfie is the boy with the gorgeous red coat.



And last but most importantly is Savannah and Lily, the pups I am considering. Savannah is the sable one and Lily is the....she described her as cream but I'd call her more of a champagne colour? I like the look of the sable one but I'm not a big fan of curly coats. She said she thinks it would straighten out but the pup in the first picture is an example of one who surprised her and stayed curly. I don't really like the colour of her coat at the moment but I would LOVE it if she went the colour of Alfie. If she did she would be first choice, but of course I don't know. Lily is gorgeous and as they both stand, is my favourite because I love her the colour she is and now she has darkened she probably won't change too much. The breeder said she is charting to be very small. Her half brother has come back to live with them because the owners' circumstances changed and he's currently full grown and weighing in at 1.2kg (the same weight as Mylo at 10 weeks). Of course small is cute, but I worry about the size difference between her and Mylo and also her being more easily hurt when I have kids etc.



They're 550, which I think is a bit much for a cross but I would still be getting the benefit of a KC assured breeder even though the dogs are not pedigree.

So, what do you guys think? What pup if any? Sorry yet again for a stupidly long post!! And thanks in advance.

Update: she sent me an email to say that Savannah should reach about 5lb. Lily won't but should be quite robust. Savannah tends to be curious and on her trip into town in a carrier she loved the attention, fuss, cuddles, noises and watching the world go by and Lily is the quiet, cuddly one. She enjoyed the attention and cuddles but was happy to snuggle up in the bag after that. She said that she checked the undercoat of Savannah and it's a good bit lighter so she thinks she will lighten up a fair bit. She also just sent me a pic of her as a very young pup and she's pretty dark so she has lightened a lot already. Thanks for listening to my rambling!

Up to you, but for 550 you could get a full Chi.

I was literally writing the same thing....currently looking at many gorgeous chihuahuas online (KC reg, vet checked, insured and inoculated) for 550 some lower some a little higher.

It is a lot :/

Melissa of course they are cute, all pups are cute. But personally I wouldn't
support a breeder of mixed dogs. But this is your choice at the end of the day,
just keep in mind that health & temperament come before looks, make sure to do
your homework and not get scammed. I wish you luck, and will look for updates.

I have seen some Chi/Powder Puff mixes that actually look more like a purebred Chi than many true purebred Chis. If you don't care about getting a purebreed, go with your heart. But just remember, you can definitely get a pure Chi if you just wait a little. Those puppies are both really adorable, by the way. I would have a hard time deciding based off looks. Based on personality, I'd probably pick the more outgoing one. Gemma was the shy puppy and she's great, but I would probably never want to pick the shy one again. Much more difficult and more work to socialize and introduce to new things.
