Hey,

I was just wondering if my dog is good looking enough to breed - and im not saying i am going to breed her i am toying with the idea - and well she's far too young now anyway (8 months)!

Does she look like a kc'd dog - because she is!

I know i have to look into it more, but for the moment i am just wondering what you all think of her - honest answers plz.

Any chihuahua can be registered with the KC aslong as Mom and dad are KC registered it does not mean they are any better than dogs without a KC.

Please post pics as the ones in your siggy are really blurred :wave:

It`s not just about looks, it`s about the health as well. Was she checked for any hereditary diseases? In my opinion what you could do is try and show her for a while and then you`ll see if she`s a breeding material...... and also as someone mentioned, the size also matters as there is quite possible that a really small female might have problems while giving birth. That`s why breeders usually use slightly bigger females and smaller males for breeding.

All the best! :wave:

Any dog that is bred should have a clean bill of health read my sticky post it has alot of helpful information. Just because a dog is cute dosen't mean it should produce puppies dogs should only be bred to better are breed and introduce healthier dogs into and better standards.

yes i have checked back with the breeder and coco's family gr8 grandparents etc all have clean bill of health - which is good - i've also had her checked out and she's as fit as a fiddle. As far as showing is concerned that's why i got her in the first place because the lady who had her before had her for showing but coco wouldnt walk on that lead - i know she wouldn't like that sort of thing - she doesn't like being around ppl that she doesn't know but is ok once she gets to know them.

I have some pics of coco in the pictures forum so plz have a look - she truly is stunning!

If you chi is registered, if your chi is the right weight, if she has an excelent pedigree and there isnt a history of health problems then yes, but do a ton of research first okay. Talk to other breeders, read books, ask the vet about costs during pregnancy and if an emergency were to pop up.

Always have in the back of your head that your chi can die from breeding. Is that a risk you are willing to take? I am not telling you not to, I am just telling you what someone once told me. Is all the risks worth it to you?

Oh, you can also get your girl checked out by the vet...they can do an exam and let you know if her knees, heart, and everything else is in top condition...you dont want to pass on any health problems to the pups.

I would love some pups from her if all those things you say are ok. But i would never be willing to risk her life - i couldn't loose my girl, it would break my heart :cry:!

I heard that the other day and i thought definetely not going to breed her now - it's not worth it!

Thanks for all your advice anyway :wave:

I wouldnt have bread her if she was too small anyway i would have waited to see what maximum weight she'd reach if she was too small it would have been a no aswel!

But about the other pup, i dont know if coco would like it or not, she might get jealous :?
