    I would use a higher quality food.  Look at ingrdients, you do not want the first ingredient to be a filler like corn.

    I would not recommend puppy food for even puppies, as most puppy formulas have milk powder in them. This could cause the puppy, or even older dogs to have the runs, which could be hard on both the dog and the owner, and could also cause dehydration. I feed my little dog moist dog food that comes in small packs. He seems to enjoy it much better than the hard 'small breed' foods.

    Appleheads do NOT do well on a beef dog food. You should find a dog food with poultry and brown rice as the main ingredients. I hope this helps you and your you lil pup.

    3 months old is very young to feed them hard food, maybe mix it with baby formula and make sure its warm (not hot) and soft.

    We feed our applehead chiuahua little rice with ground beef and green beans with a powder supplement (sundow). For the first year then add dry food less ground beef less sundown and now he eats his dry food with no grains and we always add veggies in the dry food with a small amount hot water. Has been very healthy and is our angel from heaven above.

We have a long haired chihuahua that's about 2-3 years old. She was rescued and given to us. She is so sweet and we love her dearly. The only problem that we have is feeding her. I've been giving her raw chicken legs ( skinless ) and she was doing great with that but now she doesn't eat until she is really, really hungry. The vet told to me give her a half of an allergy pill every day ( well, I give it to her at night ). I give it to her in a little bit of peanut butter on the end of my finger. She loves that. So, maybe she loves that so much that she doesn't like her chicken anymore. I'm worried she's not eating enough. She weighs 6lbs 8 ozs. Any suggestions?

My daughter purchased a yorkie about a year ago. He is such a joy and a very precious little dog. He knows that he is a very important part of our family and is treated as such. Cotton is his name and he is, or think he is, a big dog. Talking about protective, he is so protective. We thought we couldn't love a tiny dog but when he came home it was love at first sight. I call him my little grandpuppy (grandson) :). A very good dog and a very special part of our lives.

    They are awesome dogs, I bet you are having a wonder ful time. My sister-in-law had one, and he had so much character! He did think he was a big dog though, and had no fear of any other dog he encountered on walks. So she had to keep a close eye on him:) Still he was such a joy!

I have a longed haired chihuahua who is 8 years old. She is white with three black spots one covering one eye the other two are on the same side one on her stomach area the other near her butt and tail. she is a sweetheart and loves everybody yes she may bark at people when they come in the house but once they're in the house she wants to be all over them.

She is very smart we spell out words and she knows what we're saying. She has a licking fascination she loves to lick your face and basically your nose. Anyone else have that issue with their Chihuahua? She's very picky when it comes to her toys She only plays with the one which is her bare which she loves I bought her new toys one time and she would not touch them. She lets us know when she needs to go outside she'll sit there and stare at us.

Also I would like to let everybody know that has a chihuahua To watch out for their anal glands they may become filled. my dog had this problem and we took her to the vet but I had already excreted what was in there so they gave her medication for the inflammation and pain but she was still scooting her butt so we took her back and turns out she has allergies so they gave her a shot and ever since then she's been fine.

I love my Chihuahua and her name is Chloe She is my best friends and I don't know what I would do without her. She came at the perfect time after I had lost my best friend She was a great therapy for me and I love her and she still helps me through my hard times. I couldn't ask for a better dog. I wanted to breed her with another long haired But I believe she is too old now. Funny thing is that Both her mom and dad and brothers and sisters Or short haired and she was the only long haired. So I had to have her plus she's adorable.

She knows our car doors and won't bark But any other car she will bark. We spell outside O-U-T And she knows what that means. She knows a lot of words when we spelled them. She is very intelligent. Sometimes she can be a little stubborn Like when she's outside and doesn't want to come back in But we found a trick to get her back inside Since she loves her bear we say that we're going to get her bear and she comes running. she greets us whenever were gone for a period of time short or long she'll jump up and be all over us. This is one of the best dogs I've had besides a black lab I couldn't imagine my life without her.

    You may want to housetrain your dog to go to the bathroom indoors. Check around the web, as there's lots of information about indoor training available. It's usually done with paper spread on the floor or litter in a box or other type of container.
  • Maddy - 2014-12-19
    I agree, I have 2 small breed dogs and they are easy to indoor train. We use potty pads and they go only on the pads. They were very easy to train and as long as you change the pads often it is not unclean or smelly.

    I rescued a 1 yr old chug from a animal shelter and he is a good boy when he wants to be other time's he is chasing my 2 cat's and getting in the trash can in the bathroom. I have trouble getting him to go outside after it's rained and the back porch is wet. So I go out with him.

We rescued a four-year-old female Basenji from Colorado Basenji Rescue (WONDERFUL organization - only Basenji rescue within a five-state region) five years ago. At the time, her name was 'Pretty Girl'. We have a very good freind (the Priest who married us) from the Congo from where Basenjis originated. We asked him to name her in his Congolese Dialect. Her name is Muana wa Bakagi Mulenga. She answers to 'Bakagi'. She is absolutely one of the most amazing 'creatures' with whom I have ever had the pleasure of sharing my life. I would never have any other 'dog' other than a Basenji. They are no less than amazing. We go to a Rescue Reunion every year where there are sometimes 50+ dogs and NO barking! There are yodeling contests, dancing contests, etc. but spending those few hours with that many of God's special creatures is an UNBELIEVABLE treat! Thank you Peggy for all that you have done and continue to do in rescuing these amazingly beautiful creatures!
