My friend Eric is breeding his chihuahua, Bruno, soon and I have dibs on one of his boy's. The breeding will happen next Wednesday and I'm so excited but I was wondering if anybody would know how long it might be before it can come home with me(through the gestation and weaning) from experience. I would really like to know when I can expect my little guy so let me know please. Also,

do your pups dig up dirt and yap a lot?? My mother wants to know :hmph:

Hi

Im not sure about gestation but one of the breeders will now for sure, but chis shouldnt leave mommy and littermates until 10 - 12 weeks as they need extra socialisation etc due to their small size, my 2 chis dont dig but they yap at strangers and if people go by the house - but other than that there fairly quiet :wave:

from the time the female takes till the pups are born is 2 months. The pups really shouldn't leave their Mom till they are 12 weeks (or about three months) but some breeders will let them go a bit earlier.
Is it worse to let them go earlier by 8 weeks?

I know I should wait out the rest of the weeks for weaning for the sake of the pup but I'm so anxious to get my baby now, before school too. And I'd love to have it over summer so I could take it swimming and outside. As stupid as it sounds, it's important to me because I've never had a pet of my own.

Okay so gestation period takes around 2 months, then it is okay if I let the pup stay with the mother for 2 more months? I want it to be as healthy and good as it can be but still giving my some hope for sooner arrival.

No it is wrong to take a tiny chi from the Mom before 8 weeks better to be 10 - 12 weeks , I know you are excited etc but surely you are more anxious to get a happy, healthy , well adjusted and socialised pup but be at school than get to have ot over the summer holidays :?: just be patience and think its only 5 months not that long really plus you will learn so much on here between now and then and that will make you an excellent Mommy who wants to right by her baby :wave:

Thanks for the advice! Your right, it's only right to have a good pup and wait a little longer^.^Thanks so much again! I'm so nervous of all the bad things that could happen to my baby when I get her as I look at other threads with parvo and peeing blood, so I guess it's only right to wait til its fully adjusted to have a healthier and happier dog. This site is so great, I'm getting great advice and meeting alot of nice people! :D

We do love pictures! Good luck with everything! I bet time will go by faster if you keep yourself very busy, but I know it will be hard not to think about it... Here's a thought: you can just let the time pass by preparing yourself for your new pup! Read a lot of the stickies/articles on here. They help a bunch!
