I rescued a 6 to 8 year old. Red nose x boxer more pitt bull he is such a jem he miss behaves the odd time but he is a dog. 99 percent of the time he is very well behaved. I love him so much. Her sometimes try’s to dart out in traffic to cross the streets. No street or car smarts. What can I do to stop this behaviour? Thanks!

I have a 13 year old chug, I got him 11 years ago. He was a rescue from the high-kill animal shelter.  He is the best dog in the world and everyone is crazy about him. He is very smart, and good-natured, hes more than jsut a dog, hes like a little angel. He is gentle and friendly to all humans and dogs and cats. He has traveled with me all over the country on planes, trains, even a bus one time due to an airport closure. He is portable, easy to take care of and very adventurous. He sheds fur like crazy and need brushing all the time. His fur will cover the whole house if left un-checked. I use a swiffer alot and furniture wipes and brush him alot. He cant help his shedding. When he was younger, we went hiking every weekend and hour long walks every day. He can rock-climb, swim, and hike for miles. He is very quiet, and didnt even bark until we moved to a house with another dog who barked and he started barkng with her at the gate. But he is not an excessive barker at all. He is not aggressive at all as some others descirbed their chugs. I think it is not the breed that is aggressive. When I first got him he was totally wild and couldnt walk on a leash. He could jump really high onto the kitchen counters when he was young and steal any food that wasnt in a cabinet. He was very athletic. Even though they are small, they need to burn off their energy every day on a long walk. Now he is suffering from BREATHING DIFFICULTY for the past year off and on. I have been maintaing his health for a year, with herbal and holistic remedies. I still have him in good health when they wanted to put him down a year ago. Except for the occasional wheezing and snoring, he acts like a puppy and is so happy. As soon as they start snoring, go to the vet and check it out. I went to 6 vets before I found one I liked who listened and didnt just want to put him down. Mainly I keep him well with the home remedies. REMEDIES I USE;

 -NuVet dog supplement powder, it is a mix of supplements that help dogs with tumors, cancers and illnesses. It contains all of the stuff to help dogs fight cancer.  (NuVet.com)

-Rescue Remedy, and L-Theanine to keep him calm and not breathing too hard. (vitacost.com)

- Licorice oil drops for soothing his throat (vitacost.com)

-Colloidal Silver, to get rid of tumors, growths and infections (vitacost.com highly reccomend this)

-NEM or natural eggshell membrane for the natural collagen to supprt his windpipe (vitacost.com) 

-Cold-pressed, high lignan organic flax oil for omega 3's and health support (vitacost.com) 

-Trachea Support for kidney not grasping the Qi , apparently it is the best blend for his condition, they have many blends available and will even call you on the phone to find out which blend works for your dog.  Pawhealer.com

-Hound honey KC attack syrup Pawhealer.com

Also I elevate his food bowl on a stack of magazines with a dishcloth on top against a wall so he doesnt have to dip and bend his throat to get the food down. He chokes and gags on his food if he has to bend his neck down to eat it. He keeps his neck straight and eats smoothly. 

I also boil a sauce pan of water every night and turn the heat off after it boils, and drop a teaspoon of Eucalyptus oil (vitacost.com) in the water, take it with a pot holder and holding a dishcloth underneath, I wave it around where he is sitting or set it nearby him on a safe table or shelf of course, and the vapors help him breathe alot. Sometimes I carefully hold him above the pot of steam and make him breathe it in. You could do the exact same thing with a Vick's vaporizer/humidifier too, I just prefer to have the portable sauce pan technique. I try to keep the house really clean of dust and use the eucaylptus pots to clean the air and set it in every room once a day. All of this stuff is really easy and only takes a few minutes a day.

    Hi, Autumn! Thanks for the info about your sweet little Chug! I just got one a few days ago and she's just precious! She's so sweet and so smart! When she needs to go outside to pee or poop, she will whine until I take her out and she's ONLY 8 weeks old! I could hardly believe it! I hope I'm lucky enough to have her as long as you've had your sweet baby! Thank you again for the info and recommendations!

I have a female long-hair chihuahua named Haley.(I know this is silly but I named her after best rapper ever,Eminem, his daughter Haley but bc of my last name i couldn't name my child that bc Haley Whaley, well, u get point, lol so my dog got it,lol. Neways, Haley is extremely smart, obedient, well mannered, loving, good with ppl, children,and other dogs. She stays away from bigger dogs however she will sniff them sometime but won't have much to do with them and is not aggressive towards them whatsoever but dogs who are smaller than her, her size, or a little bit bigger just not 2 much bigger, she will check out of course then once she feels comfortable it's go time! LOL she plays with the neighborhood dogs like a basset hound who lives down the street and two Yorkies that are in the neighborhood and a couple other chihuahuas that live around here and her favorite, a min pen, aka Miniature Pinscher which I call her boyfriend because occasionally when he gets loose or they let him out he makes it a point to come visit her he'll look in the windows (little window peeker, lol) that are low to the ground and he'll sniff around for her and if I see him outside I'll let her out to visit and then when I take her for walks.... (bc she's very well trained and very obedient and listens to me and because of this and because of the neighborhood we live in doesn't have too much cars or anything like that and it being safe, I do not put a leash on her when I take her for a walk however I do keep a leash in my pocket in case it was ever necessary or if I see this particular guy in the neighborhood Who Walks a big huge dog it's actually a pit bull who happened to attack his neighbor's Chihuahua and almost killed it! So if I see him out then I will put a leash on her or pick her up and I do not walk her up that side street that he lives on but that's beside the point back to the story whenever I am walking her up and down the street where the cul-de-sac is on each side when we pass her boyfriend's house & she makes it a point to go through a crack in the fence to go back there and see him she's only back there for maybe 5 minutes or less I guess she goes back there says Hi in dog language and. Leaves him wanting more, haha & comes running rt. By my side. It's too cute, funny, & sweet. She's so silly and playful especially with my 8yr old,and our other lil chorkie Rosie. Rosie is 3, and full of energy constantly aggravating Haley, but she just plays with her until she's over it then ignores her even when Rosie starts making a scene, doing her play bark, running bouncing off sides if furniture ect. I tell you it's a site 2 see. RPODR IDVHaley is 5&1/2, and my lil girl was 3 when we got her. We taught her how to be gentle and just love on her and they had a blast running around the house, Megan with toy in hand while Haley would Chaser up and down the Halls barking wagging her tail and having a good old time and when Rosie came along it became two barking dogs running around the house chasing her with the toys they sleep in the bed with her one will sleep on the pillow next to her in the other one will sleep either next to her body her legs or literally on top of her side Haley doesn't like to be picked up by children however she would never bite nor has she ever even acted like she would bite she just jumps out of their hands if they try to pick her up my daughter is the only one she allows to pick up that is a child Rosie on the other hand will let any child pick her up fling her over her shoulder put her in a buggy and push her around and she's so little and lightweight that it's not hard for children to pick her up but I am always right there watching to make sure that she's being handled carefully and in no danger of being dropped it's so cute we will go bike riding and put them in our baskets and they love it and when Megan got her a electric four wheeler Haley would sit in the passenger seat and ride around with her in the grass because it wasn't really faster anything so there was no worries of her getting hurt,plus I NEVER leave them alone, but she's extremely smart and knows better than to try to jump out neither dog would ever try to jump out of anything moving I have worked a lot with them I have worked with dogs since I was a child and I love to work with animals especially dogs and train them and train them to do tricks my daughter's favorite trick that my long hair Chihuahua does is stick em up bang and my dog will hold her paws up in the air and when you say bang she'll fall over dead I got my daughter a go kart 2 seater that is fast for Christmas and when I took it for a test drive in my neighborhood which is a secluded top small subdivision where there's no traffic really the only people that comes up through here is people that lives here there's a cul-de-sac on both ends of the road and Haley of course wanted to ride with me so I strapped her in and she just laid next to me being strapped in and she..we loved it and when me and Megan ride, of course we do not allow the dogs to ride with us but they watch us through the window and it absolutely drives them crazy especially Haley because she wants to ride with us so bad because both dogs love to ride in the car when we go places we usually take them almost everywhere we go. my long hair Chihuahuas one of the best dogs I've ever had I've had three short hair Chihuahuas prior to her I love the breed but she is my first long haired and after her I will stick to the long-haired breed from now on I've had all sorts of breeds growing up and some mixed as well but most were full blooded breeds and I will have to say that my Collie, I got for Christmas when I was a kid because I was crazy about Lassie was the best dog I have ever had and my Chihuahuas especially my long hair Chihuahua, is my favorite small breed.* I am thinking about getting a big dog and I really want a collie however one breed that I have never owned well actually there's a couple of breeds I have never owned that I have always wanted 2 own one day and I would like to own a German Shepherd at some point, golden retriever and or a husky or Alaskan Malamute and there's a couple more but before I decide to even think about getting a large dog especially if it's a breed of never owned I'm definitely going to do a lot of research before I make any decisions and it definitely won't be anytime soon I have owned all kinds of large breeds growing up and they are great as well they can also be excellent for protection because people see some breeds and decide they ain't even going to go there even if the dog is just a big baby they don't know that, lol.

my border is Bert. His story: too smart, wish he helped the kids with their homework!!!. Knows every toy by name, will get the one i ask for on the first command, and usually takes only 3 times for him to know the name of a new toy. He has close to 30 toys. Never yard trained, he just seemed to pick up on the boundary. We live in the city with a small yard. We run / walk a lot. We use plain terms and commands ie; when on a walk he leads the way. I can tell him which direction to go by just saying turn right, left, go straight. He knows his right from left including which paw to give which comes in handy when cleaning. This is a small sample. He constantly is learning and always seems to want to learn. I can't see ever getting a different breed.

My little Poquita (Poqui) is a 16 mo old female papillion chihuahua mix that was given to me about a year ago.  I have had a cocker spaniel, pekinese, toy poodles, yorkshire terriers and a shitz tsu. These were all wonderful dogs and I have so many loving memories of all of them.  As you can probably tell I am a dog loving nut case.  I now have 2 pomeranians (Rascal and Katrina), a chihuahua yorkie mix (Baby) and Poqui.  I also have a cat (Mr. Meow).  Poqiu took to her new family immediately.  She loves them all but especially Baby who watches out for her as she is very active and impish.  She can jump on the bar stools and on to the counter so nothing is safe from her.  Mr. Meow and her love to wrestle and chase each other all over the house. She even gets Rascal, who is 14 yrs old and arthritic, to play with her. She is the most active yet lovable dog I have ever been around. She really knows how to cuddle.  I have never had a better dog and recommend this breed over any other.  

I am thinking of getting her bred to a little chihuahua the next time she comes in heat.  She just finished a heat last week but I thought it was to soon.  I also dont to do anything that would have detrimental effects on her health.  She is such a wonderful addition to my life.

    I had a chiion and when she was 10 years old I took her to the vet and they gave her a rabies shot and she died a few days later. I am heartsick and please let me know if you decide to breed your dogs. Where are you located? Thank you so much. Kathleen
