Default Made an inquiry about this little boy

I have really been tossing the idea around get a playmate for Lady. She tolerates all dogs but only seems to get excited about small dogs. There is another chihuahua in our neighborhood that she just loves. They are adorable together. I made an initial inquiry about the little guy in the link below this morning (via email). This is the same breeder that I got Lady from. I am pleased with her as a breeder. This is a tiny dog (2.1 pounds) should I worry about how small he is? Is he bound to have health issue, short life due to size? There is a video link embedded in the link below.

He is super cute but I personally would worry about the size. A friends Chihuahua has the same weight (she rescued him from being kept in a rabbit cage) and I was shocked how tiny and fragile he was compared to Rocky.

Also accidents can happen really quickly. As we were all sitting in the living room, the dogs playing, my friends tiny Chi fell off the sofa and layed on the floor without moving. He had to go to the vets straight away as he had a seizure. That was really scary and I am sure if he was bigger he would have been fine falling off.

Also I know that she always keeps him in a little fabric crate when she is gone as her other 2 Chihuahuas are a lot bigger compared to him and she is scared of accidents to happen (which I can totally understand).

I am not telling you that you shouldn't get him but just trying to show what can happen and how much extra care and attention he will need. If you think you can handle it than you should get him .

He is adorable! I have two his size. You just need to be really careful, accidents can easily happen with tiny ones.

Oh is he beautiful! Yes, there are concerns with his size. I would weigh if you think Lady would be okay playing with a dog that small? Is she gentle or rough? Dominant or submissive? Do you currently have stairs to the couch/bed for Lady? If not, you'd need them for this guy for sure.

If you think Lady will be okay an you guys can handle the few extra precautions you'd have to take for him, is say go for it!

Lady is exceptionally calm and gentle. I don't she think she would be too rough. He is very tiny. I think he is adorable but Lady is 5.5 pounds. The breeder said they would be fine together. I trust her on this since she knows both dogs, remember i got Lady as an adult. We actually don't have stairs for Lady. She can jump to the couch and jumps down too. We put her on the bed and she does not jump down on her own (our bed is one of the higher beds). The nice thing about that is, she stays up on the bed all night which I kind of like. If we added stairs, Lady could get up and down too....hmmm. I do like the fact that I can walk Lady but I doubt this little guy would walk far.
