Wow, 3 moderators against me. When I see a breeders forum I also expect to see a conformation forum for that breed. If you think the Taco Bell dog was a representative for my breed, sorry your wrong. Not even close. It was a good representative for the "millers" and "BYBers". Kind of looked like a rat-terrier-chihuahua cross to me. Deer heads are not breed standard "per say". A chihuahua muzzle should be 1/3 the length of the head with the nose slightly pointed. :wave:Kemo's mamma said:Well alot of us rescued............we here love the breed regardless if they look "off" to you............that was not a very good statement to make here :shock: . We only have a handful of breeders and they are all GREAT sources here not puppymills or out to make a buck.
I agree with you completly Boogaloo.Boogaloo said:I don't think any of us are disputing the things you wrote above - I agree the Taco Bell dog is not a true representation of what the breed is. I have not seen anyone on the board say that they think the Taco Bell is a good example of how a Chi should look, so I am not sure where your comment came from? I know that a "deer head" is not how Chihuahuas are supposed to look, but several people own them on this board and wouldn't trade them for all the money in the world. Some prefer that look despite the fact that it is not the true represenatation of that breed and some own that type of Chi because they are rescues.
Again, I will reiterate - you are welcome to start a thread on conformation. As that thread grows, I can ask Admin to make a whole section for it.
Sorry if we came across as being "against" you. That was not my intention!
