Hello all, I'm a brand new Chihuahua owner in Ontario, Canada. My dog is a 5 month old long haired black-tri apple head boy who is expected to be 6 pounds. I initially got a big GSD but unfortunately an unforeseeable incident happened with my grandmother and I had to move somewhere that was just too small for him to be comfortable. I decided that I should look for a dog that could be comfortable in smaller quarters, and I was drawn to the loyalty and devotion of Chihuahuas. Yesterday I went to a Chi breeder's house to meet an adult red-tri girl, but when I got there it was keeping its distance and there was a black-tri puppy who was glued to me from the first minute I got there. I asked about the puppy and learned he was available due to his previous owner running into health issues and having to return him, I knew he was the dog for me. He was the alpha of the puppy pack, when two would have a dispute he would walk up to them, they'd stop, and he'd walk back to me. He's quiet, friendly, and is either laying around you or ready to play. I named him Shadow for two reasons, one is his resemblance to Shadow the Hedgehog, and the other is his tendency to follow me around everywhere, like a shadow. Below is a picture the breeder took of him.
