Default Deer Head Chihuahua?

My husband is telling me that our new chihuahua is a deer head chihuahua. I mentioned how she looks so different compared to my other and he said that. I didn't know there was such thing? Is there? What do deer head chihuahuas look like? My other has a very short snout and a round head-- the breeder told us when we purchased him that he was an apple head chihuahua.

They have a longer snout & their head is not as round. Like my Bella she's a deerhead I think she's beautiful

Dolly is a deerhead. When I saw her, my first thought was, "She looks like a baby deer". So cute. I love them all of course, but since I have my deerhead, I do think they are pretty darn cute.

the difference is apple head is closer to the breed standard, a deerheaded chi cannot be shown and since the head and body are fuated shouldnt be bred for or from in order to keep the chihuahua as we know and love it.

the difference in looks is the "deer head" chi tends to be longer/taller. longer legs, longer nose, slimmer build and not quite as round a head.
the "apple head" is closer to the breed standard (not saying all apple heads are show or breed quality) but it would be a stockier looking dog, small but solid with a round domed skull and a short nose.

personality wise...both are the same dog in basis..,so it realy makes no difference.

Perfectly put foxywench!

I had to laugh when a person I was talking to on another nonchihuahua forum very blundtly told me how difficult it was to breed chihuahuas.
I said yes, I know small breeds CAN have a more difficult birth. Then she said, yes definatly! Especialy with those 'apple heads' that sometimes are born. So horrible that must be! The 'deerheads' was so much easyer to give birth to and so much more elegant..

*LOL* I had to laugh!

I tried to tell her that "those" 'appleheads' are the way a good bred chihuahua is supposed to look like (there is always exceptions yes) but anyways. She would argued with me till death, but I just got out of the conversation. Now there was a narrowminded person. She new it all!

I always thought a 'deerhead' looked a little more like a Miniature Pincher or the Russian Terrier. (they are soooo cute!!!)
