So, I thought this would be the perfect place to get some advice on Princess. Princess is a little over a year now and I got her for my Grandma for Christmas last year. She really wanted a Chihuahua, but couldn't afford to spend lots of money to buy one, so I did
I am very close with my Grandma and she means the world to me, so I figured a couple weeks before Christmas that I would get her a little girl. Let's just say I was stressed because I had two weeks to find one. I ended up finding Princess a couple hours away from where I lived. She was $350 and wasn't registered or anything. My Grandma didn't want a show dog or anything, so I figured it wasn't a huge deal. Anyways, the lady who I got her from admitted that it was an "oopsey" litter for sure. She had a very clean, nice home and was a very friendly girl. I got to see Princess' mom, but not the dad
But she said that the dad was a full blood Chihuahua.
Anyways, people in my family say that she is a mix and it just kinda hurts my feelings because they seem very negative about her. My Grandma loves her to death and that's what matters, but it just bothers me. She does have a long muzzle and not as much of a prominante dome-like head, but she is such a sweetie and I think she looks like a Chihuahua. I think my family is use to seeing Tinkerbell, the one in the picture, who is 3.5 lbs and Mia who is also 3.5, so with Princess being around 5-6 and not as small, they assume she isn't full bred. She does have very course fur, is that normal in some Chis?
What do you think?
