    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.

    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.

    Use the green pad ... It works great.

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!

I rescued my dog and was told he's a long hair chihuahua . If it's true, he's the biggest Chihuahua I ever saw. 15 lbs. I'm pretty sure he's a Chion. I'll post a picture.

I'm looking for a little applehead. I just lost my best friend in the whole world. I never thought I could hurts so much in my life. My beloved Gloria is gone and now I have all this love to share with a little one. But I'm having a problem finding them in my area. I'm looking for a female smooth coat. I'm hopeing to find a black and tan baby. She was my world and I'm so lost without her. Can someone please help me find my new baby? I don't have a lot of money even though my baby was a show dog. But when I got her I retired her. So papers are not important to me I just want one that is a applehead and will not get any bigger than 6 pounds. Thank you so much for listening.

    I am very sad to hear of your loss. We live in a area where they are not common. I don't want to think about loosing our pippa marie. Sometimes I come across someone wanting to get rid of their chahuahuas because they are more work than expected. I will look for you and let you know . Best wishes to you and sorry for your loss.

    I would suggest you check with your breeder. Possibly it didn't demonstrate enough of the show qualities of a perfect Pekingese, so was sold as a pet. That could account for some of the variability in its traits.

    Here is the difference. Coloring patterns and build are different. Japanese Chins also come in red/white (we have a boy that color).

I rescued a 4 yr old male long haired chi/ pomeranian mix. He looks like a long haired chi. He wieghs 6 pds but the vet said he is underweight because you should not feel his spine. He does look real thin. Anyways, he doesn't like dry dog food and I have tried several brands. So I am going to make my own dog food. I found a recipe online . Will have brown rice, turkey, chicken, beef, peas, chicken broth , water and eggs in it. I read they should not eat beef so I will eliminate that. But I have no idea what size portion to feed and if once a day or twice. I have not owned a dog in 30 yrs, since I was a kid. I have had cats, 2 recently passed both were 19. Any ideas? Also is beef really bad and why .

    Feeding can be an art with these little guys, as some develop allergies, gain weight quickly, or other things. There are recipes for chihuahuas that include beef, so I don't think it is necessarily bad for them unless they seem to develop issues that are diet related. These little dogs do require frequent feedings in small amounts. Some suggest feeding about every 4 hours. In general, the amount of food fed each day is based on the chihuahua’s weight. On average, they will eat 1/4 to 3/4 cup of dry food per day. But it is important to offer a high quality diet and read the manufacturor's suggested amount for the weight of your dog.
