Default People keep asking me what kind of dog I have?

Does he not look like a chihuahua? His papers say chihuahua,although they also say (unreg.) Does that mean he is a mix?
Please help,I know nothing about this stuff.

It's hard to tell from your avatar what he really looks like.

The fact he is unregistered doesn't mean he isn't a chihuahua. Many chihuahuas are unregistered.

See if you can post some pictures of him - upload them to photobucket.com, then click on share and you will see a variety of codes, pick the one that begins with IMG and then click and paste that link in to your post.

I wouldn't worry there are so many breeds and there are many I don't know and there are bound to be those that don't know what a Chi looks like

People are stupid.. i got asked what Daisy was and i said a Chihuahua and then i got but she's fluffy... so had to tell them she was long haired and i got told that meant she wasn't a chihuahua so told them to look at the kennel club and shhhh i find it quite insulting when they're adament they're not and they blatantly look like one!!

Daisy is unregistered.. don't worry about it, it doesn't bother me, i'm not showing her and not breeding her so i don't need a piece of paper that says my dog is a chihuahua!

Post pics i want to see!!!!

yeah i had someone argue with me there was no such thing as a long coat chihuahua when i first got Twig years ago...still get asked occasionally what mine are not so much since ive had B but even a lady who was walking a chi asked me if they were poms when B was about 4 months and had his fluffy baby coat

It doesnt automatically mean his a mix because hes not reg, just means his parentage cant be proven (as generation after generation are registered with the KC)

People argue with me all the time and say there isnt a long coat chi and I got duped. They always tell me either I have a Pom or a Pap and Chibi looks nothing like either of those breeds, LOL! Everybody's an expert on everything, I have considered carrying books around with me on Dane colors and Long coat chihuahuas just so I can show them when they run their mouths. I have a lot of people tell me that I was ripped off because my Dane that I show in AKC conformation is a Dalmation mix, LMAO!!
