I adopted a teacup chihuahua and he has mixture of smooth hair and wire hair. He looks like chihuahua and is supposed to be purebred but not so sure. I seen papers and parents. I attached photos please let me know what you think.. He is a cutie either way was just wondering what you think

Edit: sorry this I my first time owning a chi didn't realize it was such a bad thing calling the, teacup that is just hat the people said I adopted him from.

What do you guys think about this site where others say they have a wire? I am used to owning pitbulls.

Welcome to CP!

I hate to say it, but I think you have a mutt. From what I understand Chihuahuas only come in 2 varieties, smooth coat and long. And there is no such thing as a teacup chi. It's just a term some people use to make small breeds sound more appealing. It doesn't matter though, your chi is a real cutie! :)

agreed , there is no such thing as a tea cup, breeders, sellers, people that wanna make money will say anything to sell there pups. Now i do know some breeders will tell u it will be tea cup size, or micro tea cup size, or tiny toy, or toy , and or just reg chi , but that doesnt really mean anything , i think in some cases its just a way for them 2 kind of explain what size it will be. In my opinion they cant really guess or say what size, they are like us in a way i think. When we r born they dont say oh its going 2 be a short fat human, or a skinny tall bald person. We are all diferent, just like chis. Chihuahua is a breed, weather its tiny, small or regular size. either way they are all gorgeous dogs :), and your doggie is precious.

EEek he is so cute! I agree with the others though; the wire coat means somewhere along the lines another breed was mixed in. But, it could be a couple generations back in the lineage; his body shape and head shape look all chihuahua to me.

I'm guessing that these people don't know much about the breed....

BTW there's need to be sorry. Sounds like you're willing to learn about chis, which is always a good thing. :)

He's adorable! 100% Chi or 50% or whatever,
he's still super cute and I'm glad you got him!
