Hi and Welcome :hello2:

I hope you will find lots of helpful information here.

Been to DM-AFB a long time ago. No doubt it has changed ALOT.

Welcome

Welcome to life with a chihuahua, they are unlike any other dog. My youngest child was 4 when we got Jenny. You hear alot that chihuahuas aren't good with small children. I disagree, some people don't teach their young child to respect a small dog. I taught my children that Jenny is not a stuffed animal or toy. They learned that she was really alive and could get hurt. Some chihuahuas snap at kids if they keep picking at them. Jenny sometimes does this to other kids. I just tell them to leave her alone. If you need any advice let me know. But my kids are still doing great with her 3 years later and always respect her and take care of her for the special little girl that she is.
