She definitely looks like a full bred chi, you can always have the vet do a DNA test just to be sure, but its my best guess that yes, she is. How much does she weigh? generally a chi wont be over 6 lbs, although there is always exceptions to rule.

Yep, looks like a pure Chihuahua to me alright. I wouldn't mind your Vet, sometimes they can get pretty grumpy with me too. I have no idea why.

Yeah, she definitely LOOKS like a chihuahua. But fact is, without an actual pedigree (where you have proof of lineage) or the DNA test there's no real way to know for sure. Being labeled a "chihuahua" and actually having the documentation to prove it are very different things, lol. None of mine have proof; so while I do call them 'chihuahuas' I don't call them "purebred" since I can't prove it either way.

The commercial DNA tests can be fun, but not as accurate as the vet. Finn tested 100% Chi three generations back. I didn't know what he was. I didn't know about long hair Chis. I just took him home so he wasn't killed.

can i also ask ye two other questions since ye have been so helpful.. Shadow is our first dog and she has a habit of humping thing for no reason before and after she's been nurtured is there any reason for this?? and also i asked for small dog flea does and only realised when i got home the vet gave me medium dose does it matter if i give it to her or not? its flea dose for back or neck. not a tablet????

Wait! don't give the bigger dose of flea preventative! take it back and get the one for
her weight :)

humping--can be a sign of dominance...

3/4 Chi and 1/4 terrier: One parent is a Chi, One is half Chi half Terrier...
