Hi Everyone!

When I took Tyty to the vet, the girl at the counter said, Oooooh, you have a Chug! And, I was like a what? And, she said a Chug, and I was like, well, I thought he was full blood Chihuahua.... I asked the vet and she said it was hard to tell, she looked to see if he had a curly tail and it was kinda straight at the time. She said, well, he could be full blood chihuahua.

Then, I started researching Chug's online. And, I saw pics that looked EXACTLY like Tyson. OMG! And, they said they were designer dogs... I haven't seen a chihuahua with a black mask like Tyson's. It doesn't really matter since I adore him no matter what. It's funny because I am a pug person and this was my big leap into getting into non-pug territory, and then I might have ended up with a part pug anyway...lol.. I guess me and pugs were meant to be.... I know this isn't a great shot since it was from my cell phone, but do you think Ty looks like a Chug?

Thanks everyone!

awww good, missy r. I hope he's a full blood chi, I think what would bum me out more than anything is that the people who I bought him from lied to me. As far as tyty goes, like I said, i adore him no matter what....

Oh, I didn't know you could get a DNA test done on dogs. I knew you could on birds.....

No, not from a breeder, from a family who said they had a long hair and a short hair and they didn't mean for them to breed, but after the birth they were having the femaile spayed. Ty doesn't look like he has any long hair in him, but then I read that sometimes it takes two months or so for the long hair to come out.... I'm glad to hear that there are black masked chi's. I haven't run across any pics so far, but there is an official Chug website. I tried to copy and paste in here, but I wasn't able to.

Yeah, Kittynkahlua, I almost died when I heard that term (online), because I had never heard of a designer dog before, shoes, yes. But, dogs? uh, no. And, I've seen some pug crosses that were really really ugly.... and that I didn't think were too cute.... I like regular chi's and regular pugs.... lol.... but, any dog that needs a home is good by me....and, this baby did need a good home and I adore him, and it is nice to have a dog that hasn't been abused. I've been housing shelter dogs and dogs from puppy mills etc for a long time.....

oH, that's interesting to find out that the long hair is a recessive gene. I've seen some LH chis on this site that are totally drool worthy....lol.... they are gorgeous! But, my lil Ty's coat is the softest thing! So beautiful with the black sable strip.... I've fallen for the chi bug bad. Thanks guys!

Gucci Grande! I vote for yours as the best sig.... I made it my desktop pic for a few days, but the gif didn't work, it was still cute!

Thanks everyone for your comments.... so happy we think he is all Chi... his personality grows cuter with each passing day... he's my very first Chi ever.... I'm going to post one or two more pics taken this weekend with his big brother, boo-boo.... they love each other sooo much:p

Here they are, I love my babies sooo much! I did some research on black masked chihuahua's this weekend and found that yes, there are black masked in addition to many many other colors, that's one of the things that makes Chi's so fun!

He has such a great personality.... I think I have a karmic connection with Marley....lol....

LOL LeStatKelly....

A Chiweenie is a cross between a dachsund and a chihuahua... OmG! When I was doing extreme trail riding out in the New Mexico Sevilleta, huge canyons where we canyon jumped, boulder jumped, trails straight up and down, the trail master had a chiweenie... and that was her name...she was tiny and looked like she had some terrier in her too, long like a dachsund and scruffy... she ran with those horses, jumped boulders, stayed out of the horses way, she was amazing! Then, he would put her up on his saddle and he would ride on the saddle with him, that's when I really started falling for small dogs and started wanting a chihuahua bad.... that little dog was tough. But, after reading stuff on this forum, I would never ever let my little Ty do something like that or even step out unsupervised. Right down the street from my house is a tiny tiny black and tan chi named Baby... him and his sibling are out all the time running up and down the street. They are not very socialized... but, these chis are not babied at all, no pun intended.... lol... and, seem to do just fine, but like I said. Not mine. It killed me to have to leave him to go to work today. It's his puppyhood and I want to be with him every minute. Yeah, the designer dog thing is just a gimmick for people to make big bucks. I like a full blood pug and a full blood chi, but that little trail dog chiweenie was pretty darn cool....

Oh wow, MChis, you show. How cool is that? Well, your darlings are stunning and I bet they'll do fabulous in the show ring, maybe I'll see you on animal planet one day? I'm single and have a half acre, old house, two horses, a pot belly pig, my birds and my two doggies, oh and two bunnies, one inside netherland dwarf, and one outside big red-eye white... So, I totally have my hands full. I guess there might always be room for another chi.....lol! maybe when I retire.... hehe.

Wow! Taking places in a show, hooray for Lulu! I think I'm with you, and my next Chi I want registered pedigreed and to be very very picky. I lucked out with Ty and I adore my boo-boo who is a pound puppy. But, OMG! Yes! My farm animals are a total blast. The pig, Sweet Pea is literally in love with the horses.. he follows them everywhere and stays right under their feet and they are very careful not to step on him. He jumps up on them and always always always leaves them some of his grain to eat... They all sleep together in the back manger. I have straw down for Sweet Pea to bury himself in and he spends his time finding sticks and building a little fortress so the horses won't pee or poop on his bed... pigs are so darn smart. My white rabbit lives in the pig pen with his best friend the guinea pig. They can come and go as they please, are not contained, can jump out, but prefer to just stay in their cozy little home... white rabbit will run around the property and one time him and the horses all broke into the barn and ate a bale of hay....lol! And, let's not get started on the lovebirds.... hehe, but I want a beauty like Marley for my next Chi.... if I wasn't such a farmgirl and had so many mouths to feed, I would revert back to wanting a Louis Vuitton Sac de chien to carry Tyty in... but, feeding and medical bills for my babies are much more important now... my how life changes..... it's really nice to get to know you Heather. I'm so impressed with you and Loulou. I've never showed my horses or anything. It would be intimidating, but I bet you get to meet a lot of cool people and see really cool chi's. Where I got my little blue netherland dwarf is a breeder who shows rabbits. She loves going to the rabbit shows. The netherlands are the chihuahuas of the rabbit world. They are sooooo adorable with these tiny little ears.... My netherland now is bigger than Tyty....lol!

Understood. I'm shy too and a loner... Horse people are really odd ones. I'm glad to finally have a place where I can have my horses at home and ride on my own.. although it's a little dangerous....but, the horse thing can get competitive and weird.

Good luck with your little Lulu, you have me scanning puppy pictures! LOL! I need to get to work and stop being Chi obsessed! lol... not likely... let me know how your next show goes.....

I would love a snow white chi....:rolleyes:

Yeah, it was fun. At the time (2 years past) I had a lab Sharpei cross who was the best dog! She was a great trail dog and came with us all the time, I also had a rescued (from the freeway) bassett hound and several rescued pugs, one blind, one from a puppy mill and crippled and one gorgeous but really freaked out and would run away. A person came to visit me and while I was sleeping one morning, why I don't know, he decided to let all my dogs out. The rescues ran away..since they were pure bred, the bassett and the pug, someone picked them up and didn't turn them in. The little blind pug I had to put down which just killed me and the pug from the puppy mill passed away. My lab Sharpei was used to being the alpha female of the pack, so she turned on the horses... she began nipping their heels and when I tried to contain her, she jumped through two windows to get to them. I gave her to a friend who simply adores her. She was a wonderful dog! I talked to him yesterday and he said that he loves that dog so much. So, that is a good ending and then I decided to go with a small dog, but I wasn't going to get two. I did though, and now my boo-boo is so much happier. He was stuck alone all day by himself. Yes, those little buggers can be really tough, but they can also be really fragile.....:confused:

aw thank you catz4m8z! Little Ty kinda looked like a teeny boxer cause of his coloring and his black face a few weeks ago; now he's starting to get that slender long look of the chi and his nose is becoming more pronounced.... Chiweenies are cute! I just love pugs too! They are so freaking cool..... but, I think if another doggie comes into my world, I'm gonna have to go with a Chi with a pedigree.... ugh, I'm turning into such a snob....lol! My gf want a Chi for Christmas and there are some for sale down by my house, so we are going Chi shopping on saturday... but only for her! I've got my babies and after this I'm going to be very very picky or should I say snobby! lol!
