Hi, I am new to the Site... I have had my boy Chihuahua Joey for about a year now and he is a year old. He is the sweetest thing to me and my mom. But he is very anti social. He goes crazy around people he doesnt know... and people that he has been around before... I guess he just dont like them. My fiancee plays with him alot and gets him all rowd up and they play... but when he trys to be sweet to him, he starts growling at him! I dont know if he thinks that he is trying to play or if he just doesnt like him. Hes never bit anyone... but sometimes I think he will!! If someone new comes into my room or near him, he starts barking like crazy, growling and everything. Sometimes he gets use to them and calms down, but sometimes i have to put him into another room. Is it just a chihuahua thing or is he just scard or what!! HELP?????????? :wave: :?:

its a chi thing--you dont want to encourage rough play ever as that is a "rank" type of move......Have you tried any training with him? Sometimes no matter how well a puppy is socialized you can still have problems (not sure how you socialized him) but chis are generally 1-2 people dogs and are very loyal and protective.

Have people give him treats and things and approach him in a gentle calm fashion. Giving praise when good behaviour is achieved. Lots of old threads about this too. :wave:

Hi and Welcome :hello2:

You don't want them to ever bite your hands and fingers (or anywhere else) they need to learn it's not acceptable behavior to bite human, ever.
