Hi everyone, I have never owned a chihuahua before, though I have had quite a few dogs. We just adopted a 4 year old male called Paco. We adore him already. I have never had such a small dog and he seems to have a bit of a "Napoleon complex." He is eager to make sure our other dog (a 25 pound female Puggle) knows his boundaries. In a way I think that is healthy, but I am watching him closely that he does not guard his territory or bed too much. He really likes to snuggle and be on our laps, this is definitely new for me. He is 8.5 pounds but looks like a classic chihuahua to me. He came from a shelter so I don't know his background, it said "chihuahua" and "mix" both on a note from a vet who saw him. But it seems possible he could be pure chihuahua right? Let me know what you think!
