Hi everyone, just joined the site looking for info, tips and lots of cute pics of chihuahua's!!
I love my two little ones and love reading other stories and lots of info bout the little darlings :)
I have a cream smooth coat little boy who's 1 year old called Alfie and has just 2 days ago adopted a gorgeous white long haired little girl who is also 1 :p

I thought bringing up a puppy was hard but adopting a chi at 1 is harder!
Her previous owners didn't want her as she didn't grow big enough to be shown and is too small to breed from. Kept in a pen with lots of other dogs with newspaper to pee on and a small bowl of food and water to share between them all!
She has not been socialised, doesn't know to pee and poo outside and does not respond to any commands/calls you give her!
This could be hard work but i'm prepared to do all i can to get the best out of her so any tips or advice would be very much appreciated!
I will try and post some pics for you all to see once i realise how too!

She weighs 3.4 lbs at the moment, but hoping to get her a bit fatter and healthier as you can see and feel her little bones. A few mths with me and she will look so much better :) x

My Chi is 9 now & has me trained better than I have him. But started over his training recently. You can teach them, but realize... They are one of the MOST stubborn little dogs there are. Plus they have "big dog complex"; which makes it even harder.
When they want your attention (luke pick them up), you ignore them... But when they're doing what they're supposed to be, that's when you pet them, pick them up & give good lovings.

Welcome to the forum. Your little girl is so cute. Patience with her. She has not had a good beginning. Hopefully Alfie will help her adjust. Maybe once she sees it is alright to be loved and cuddled she will settle in. Alfie may help with the potty training. Taking them both out at the same time to do their business where she can smell where Alfie has gone will give her the idea. Good luck, and thank you for giving her a forever home.
