Well we made it home safe with Pacino! He was so good for the car ride and then went to meet my hubby at work and meet his aunt Leslie at Woof Life. We then decided to bring him home to meet my crew and have a quick bath/blow dry. I have never met a better socialized chi in my life. He played with big dogs at Woof Life, kisses kids at Toyota, and did awesome with his bath. I'm kinda sad he and Damaris just left!! He's going to have such a great home with his new mommy. She picked up Fromm and Stellas to start him on and then eventually switch to The Honest Kitchen.
Enough about that, enjoy the pics!!!


Already has a buddy belt harness!





Getting so sleepy!




Leah has 2 gorgeous litters of puppies! They are all so sweet!




And this is Buffy, her daughter's chi! She was supposed to be 6lbs but ended up only 2.7lbs!! Pictures don't do her justice!




Damaris just sent me this text saying he's finally asleep!!

Aww he's adorable! He looks so happy and confident on these pictures, especially considering he's in a completely new situation. His attitude sounds like my Rocky. I had never seen such a sociable chihuahua before. :) Too many cute puppies in this thread, I want them all! :p

He looks fabulous!! Was that the first time you saw Leah's set up in person? Were you pleased with what you saw? From the sound of little Al Pacino, sounds like she knows what she's doing!

Camille, we were shocked! All of her dogs were dying for us to pick them up and kiss us. It was like a dream!! I was thinking he would maybe get sick in the car or cry a little, nothing. He ran right up to my hubby and started kissing him too. Then at Woof Life a couple big dogs came in and I picked him up initially, once I realized the big boys were harmless, I set him down and he ran up to them to play! My dogs would have ran in the other direction!
I wanted to steal all the puppies! She had short coats and long coats, creams, black and tans, chocolates, all varieties!

Thank you Tina! We are so impressed and pleased with him! Ya that was my first time there! Her house is very nice, big and newer. She has 2 litters of 4 pups with their mama's in 2 separate cages, then she had a cage w 4 chis, 2 of which are her and her daughter's pet chis, 1 was a 7 month old potential stud, and 1 more long coat older puppy. And finally Pacino and Rocket were running around the house playing. I crouched down and called "Sparky" by his name and he came running with kisses. I was shocked at how small and gorgeous all her dogs were, her pics do not to them justice. Pacino has these short little stocky legs, like maybe 3" long! And he's stocky, super coby, short nose and big applehead. I would highly suggest her, very professional and dogs are taken care of so nicely right in her home. I wanted to stay there and play with all of them all day! 💕

He is so cute! He looks so sophisticated in the 4th pic down, I love it!
Thank you! Haha, he does! He settled in with Damaris in no time and I think it shows!! He was really strutting his stuff after his bath and blow dry, lol!!

I've never made contact with her since I'm no where near in the market for another yet--just stalk her website constantly. lol I'm so thankful I have someone now that I trust who has seen it firsthand. I felt like that's exactly what you would say, but one never knows for sure. I noticed she recently changed her policy to no more shipping. I would not have shipped anyway, but I found that interesting and wondered what happened that made her change all of a sudden after so many years of breeding. I also love her dogs (the ones I have seen on her website). I love that she has a good amount of smooth coats as hubby prefers smooth coats, and I'm OK with either smooth or long. You need to tell your friend about Chi Ppl or keep posting pics of Al Pacino for us!! :D

He is such a cutie! Good taste too- did I see he already has a greenbelts collar and matching BB? I love that look too- our first chi experience was a foster that looks a lot like him.
Also she seems like the kind of breeder I dream about! We are nowhere close to another dog around here but I have been dreaming of a little, long haired puppy lately. If I started going to breeders websites I would just go crazy I think.

That's amazing!! They're gonna have a lot of fun with him. It sounds like that breeder is really good at socialising her dogs. Rocky is exactly the same and we couldn't believe it. On our way home on the first day, he wanted to see and lick everyone, every kid and play with every dog on his way. It's like he didn't even care that we were complete strangers. He's fearless. lol And I can see why you wanted to steal the puppies. I'm not looking to get a 3rd chihuahua, 2 is a perfect number for us right now... but I so wish I could get a long hair chi. :lol:

That's how my girl is too! Almost to a fault. Loves everyone and everything, from big dogs to little dogs and even cats! And people of all ages, but especially children! Smaller the better it seems! And I have heard her bark twice, and that was with me incecently teasing her, to hear her bark(mean mommy). I was so concerned with all the negative (and unsolicited ) comments I head about chis when I first adopted her, and she has proved everyone wrong! She the best puppy I could ever imagine! Glad your friend is so lucky as well with Pacino!!!

He's so adorable and so masculine. It's sounds like he's really comfortable with his new life already. What a blessing! I wish I were close enough to get a brindle pup from Leah. I have to suspect for the little info I could get that Mickey might have come from either her or one of hers. (Previous owner never had him neutered so, of course, no papers.)

I noticed she doesn't ship anymore either, I wonder if she had a bad experience, maybe an owner didn't bond with a puppy or something? She had a very nice home and the chis are definitely very well taken care of. I think she usually has more smooth coats than longs, each litter had 1 long coat and the rest were short. It would be so cool to meet you and for you to have a sungold baby!! Her dogs are 100x cuter in person, I wanted to take them ALL home! I will show D the forum and maybe she will join! I plan on adding her to the Facebook group, that may be easier for her to post in! So check in there too!

Thank you!! My friend Leslie gave him the buddy belt and we gave him a few greenbelts collars and clothes so that he's all set! She really is a great and ethical breeder, I think she's been breeding and showing chihuahuas for over 25 years! I can't look at chi puppy pictures anymore, makes me have puppy fever and with a baby coming, that would not be a good mix!

He is gorgeous. By the look of the pictures it looks like he already has a great temperament. Lucky you get to watch him grow up and enjoy him through your friend.

Just seeing all those puppy pictures makes me want another, but love having just my two also.

Where did you get Rocky from again? I forgot???? I think it's bc she has puppies all year round and people pick them up from her home so the chis are exposed to so many new people all the time! Maybe one day when you are ready, you can add baby #3! :)

That is great!! Most chis as pups are fearless and lovers, it's somewhere around 6 to 7 months they go through this fear stage and start being less social. Mimi and Leo loved everyone at first but definitely got more shy as time went on. Mimi is more out going than him for sure. When someone comes over, she runs over to bring them a toy like a gift, lol, it's so funny!! I hope your baby stays super social!

Ya I remember you saying you thought he is a Sungold baby. You can alway take a road trip! I love the brindle chis too, especially the long coat ones. My breeder had a reverse brindle from Leah once named Pixie and she was stunning! But ended up less than 4lbs so she couldn't use her for breeding. Damaris really got lucky with this little man!
