I was just wondering if you can have two female chihuahuas living in the same home. I've searched all over the internet for an answer and can't find it. Does it make a difference if they're from the same litter?

two pups to train at once can be a huge challenge (especially when it comes to house training) but I have 2 females myself - one spayed, one not. We dont have any problems whatsoever, but they arent from the same litter. Be warned though, some breeders wont allow you to buy 2 pups from the same litter at once!

I have 3 female chi's. They get along fine...even play together occasionally....but they do get along better with my male.

I always try to keep a "balanced" pack, but I know a lot of people that have only males or only females with little trouble. I agree with Natti, though -the prospect of training one pup can be daunting, let alone two.

I have one female chi and one female cocker spaniel and they get along great. My poor husband is the only boy in the house. ;-) I have noticed however, that the girls sometimes get jealous if my husband is petting one and not the other. They don't seem to care if it's me. ;-)

I have 2 female chi's. Get along fine. I would rather you not get litter mates. They tend to bond to one another, and are harder to train together. Get one, then another one 6-12 months later. My two are 2 years apart. Good luck. Sue Davis and the chi's

I have three female Chis, all joined the pack as adults. One is senior, and interestingly she only has issues with one young male, not the other two females.

My two do really well. They are not litter mates. they are just 2.5 weeks apart in age but I got them 2 months apart.

Really, I am surprised that it was not harder having two puppies at once. Got potty training over with at the same time! They play together and run together and yes they will fight over the same toy occasionally. Just like children will! haha! Our first is the leader. She is/was so high maintenance and needed so much of our attention and play that we got nothing done but attending to her. Now that she has her sister, she is more independent and they keep each other occupied really well!

I have 3 females. Two puppies from the same litter. They have such different personalities that it's been no problem. They all like to wrestle and play then they each go to their separate beds, on their own. At first they would sleep together but lately they've decided to sleep alone. So it just depends on the pups I suppose.

Hi,

I have two girls, half sisters a year apart, and they get along just fine. My neice has two girls also sisters from different litters, actually sisters to my girls and they get along fine and all four enjoy getting together for play dates.

Minnie and Tootsie are sisters from the same litter. they have a beautiful bond and also they each crave attention from me. very good natured girls they are. and when i added Peyton around 6 months ago ( she's a yorkie that will be 3 in June ) , she fit right in. they all get along perfect :)
if i were to do this all over again, i would get 2 girls from the same litter again.

I only days ago brought home another female Chi, Nala. Fiddle (Original Chi) is 11 months old and sofar there has been no issue. I know that when Nala is a little bigger it is likely there will be a dispute over who is top dog, but you can expect that between male/female as well. :)

I have 3 female chihuahuas and we have no problems. Neeci is 7 months older than Ellie and Ellie is a year older than Chloe so they weren't puppies at the same time. Neeci and Ellie are really close but they are adults and Chloe is still a pup so I imagine they will incorporate her a little more when she isn't such a pain in the butt. LOL

My 2 girls get along great. They sleep together, groom each other and play all the time. However my boy is abit moody and likes his own space so dog number 4 will be another girl I think.;)
