In the interest of educating any new buyer I would have to say "In my humble Opinion, I would steer clear in this case.

If you are looking to find a chi, here are some hints

1) Look for a breed who only has 1 or 3 litters per year (not the case here).
2) Look for a breed who does not advertise rare colors like blue since blue chi's are known to have skin related issues
3) Look for a breed who does not advertise teacup or toy chihuahuas. These are ficticious names used to discribe very small chi's and gain more money for their size from a buyer
4) Get a written health guarentee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5) Make sure the puppies do not leave their mother before a minimum of 8 weeks
6) Be careful, DO NOT IMPULSE BUY. It could end up costing you heartache and thousands of dollars in vets bills in the end. Visit the AKC website and educate yourself about what a good chi looks & acts like.
7) Visit a dog show and talk to chi breeders. Any Good breeder will be willing to answer any and all your questions!

Nope

Nope, Im not a breeder, never would want to be one. If your breeding healthy tested dogs that meet the breed standard, your definately not in it for the money. There are too many risks involved, too much heartache and so much personal time involved. Breeding should be left to the true professionals!!

Having said that, Im very very familiar with the ins & outs of good breeding practices and what or how one should go about finding a good quality healthy puppy. I've lived, I've learned the hard way in some instances and I've educated myself. Dogs are such special gifts and should be treated as such, not as money making machines.
