    Yes please check the local shelters and there are also many chihuahua rescue groups.
    I got my long haired chihuahua from a rescue group through He is just the sweetest thing ever. He is 4 yrs old, house trained, sits on my lap all the time, very affectionate and enjoys car rides.

missy wimer - 2012-01-06
We have a long hair chihuahua she is so sweet, but the only problem we're
having is she has real long hair on her butt so everytime she has a bowel
movement it sticks and hangs in her hair. I've tried cutting it but it still sticks. Any ideas please help.

    You have seen a poodle with the typical poodle cut? I have seen that on the long haired chihauhua. Literally from the hip bones and down to the knees the pup is shaved - completely shaved. From the back knees on down, there is hair. The tail except for the tip is also shaved. I never thought about there being a actually reason for this - just thought the people had a preferance. If I was having the problem you describe - that is what I would do - different but cute look.
  • Deb - 2014-08-06
    Just shave her butt. Use a comb and place it between her and the shaver. I shave both of mine all the time. If you do just the rear no one notices it at all. There is no need to ruin their hair and shave the entire dog! It works, using the comb and cutting it short. Hope this helps. :)
  • katrina - 2016-04-05
    I used to be a groomer. You just have to shave it or have someone do it.

    Dry dog food does the trick.  I have a long haired male and never had a problem.
  • Rosemarie - 2016-12-04
    My mum had one and when I took mum in Muffy came too. I use to wash Muffy's rear end every time she came in. Only solution. Muffy was good. She'd sit at the door until I came to wash her. She NEVER attempted to come in without a wash. If she hadn't done her business she would just run in. They are VERY intelligent.

I have a long haired chihuahua. She never wants to eat her dog food. We buy her a lot of different kind of dog food but she won't eat it. What should I feed her?

    I recently adopted a 3 month old male long Chihuahua puppy. I feed him the Chicken and Brown Rice flavor of Simply Nourish for small breed puppies. He loves it I feed my other dogs (a Maltipoo and a Golden Border Retriever) Chicken and Brown Rice Simply Nourish for adult dogs. They love it. The little puppy eats their food, too, when he can get to it. This food provides sound nutrition and is sold at Pet Smart. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
  • Kristy - 2016-03-22
    I got mine dry puppy food, but she prefers the Maltese's food which is Beneful with Little Caesar's mixed in. I put a quarter of a tray of Little Ceaser's in with it (her dry puppy food) at dinnertime. She picks out the Little Caesar's and then eats the dry food at her leisure.

    Have her checked by a vet there could be blockage. Try salmon.dogs can sense what their bodies need. Try a variety of foods. Dogs like grass to help them self medicate.

I used to have a special chihuahua ... I adopted her when she was still a puppy ... She loved me in a unique way for more than 13 years ... My most incredible memory of her is when i took her the first time to the beach with me ... She always hated cold water ... So i let her with my parents ... when she saw me swiming she was barking my parents she wouldn't stop even howling ... Suddenly i didn't hear her voice anymore so i began to swim back my way to the sand ... And then surprise ... A littl brown hair emerged from the water she swam all the way to reach me thinking i was drowning ... she did the same each time since so i begin to stop taking her to the beach cause it was each time an emotionnal trouble for her ... She's gone now since ten months ... mamal cancer got her ... and for me it's still like it was yesterday i'm still mourning her ... She was defnitely the best dog of my life ... She loved me more than her own life ... she was my mate ... my one and only .... I tried to recomfort my self by getting a cat ... It didn't work ... Then i decided to buy a lil chihuahua who would remind me of her so i ended up rescuing a long hair one almost 18 months who already gave bird (she was proprety of a dog trafficant) she is really loving and lovely ... She didn't knew love before me ... I already love her it's been two weeks now ... she so sweet that she's nice with my cat and don't provoque her eventhough chihuahuas are known to be 'possessive' ... i put boundaries for time to sleep and she accepted it ... I know i'm gonna love her again .. But i realised that she will never be my sweet beloved doggie ... the love of my life ... i miss her so much my sweet Lady .... Her name was Lady .... she died on my mothers arms ... I still feel guilty not making it home at time to be with her ... cause i'm sure she was waiting for me to say goodbye by all her strengh ... But that day i had an emergency with one of the other loves of my life ... one of my horses ... (yes i got horses too i'm an animal lover and equestrian since 6years old horses are part of me ) If the death of my sweet Lady almost killed me ... How am i gonna survive if something bad to my horses ... it drives me crazy i'm sure i will not survive i'll never make it ... I could die only by this kind of heart break ... but at leat i'll may end up reunited with my sweet Lady .... Please ... If you own a chihuahua or willing to get one , if you do , be sure he s the only pet in the house ... chihuahuas like exclusivity like monogamous love even if they can adapt and adjust ... and love them like they deserves to be loved ... Their Loyalty have no price . M

My long hair chihuahua suddenly during a lot of water and not wanted to eat

Maria Perez - 2016-07-23
I have a long haired chihuahua and she surprised me and my granddaughter this morning. My granddaughter had a friend sleep over and they went to sleep in my bed and Candy went and laid between the two girls and wanted to get her so the girls could be comfy and she tried to bite me and she would not come with me, wonder why, she just stayed between the girls and is asleep. Is she protecting them?

I have a long haired chihuahua that just turned a year old on the, 19th dec. His name is Lucky Boy. He is very smart, but every morning I find that he has peed all over the tiles outside my house this happens everyday. I do beat him and try to teach him not to do it but he still does it this is the only problem I have with him, other than that he is a really smart dog. How else can i train him to stop doing it ??

    It will never do any good to hit/beat a pup. Besides you are doing it after the deed is done so your dog just thinks you are hurting him for no reason which leads to anxiety and possibly the behavior. Could he be afraid of morning? That is a little pup and he can only hold it so long. You can remove water after 6 pm - should bedtime be the 11 pm. You can take him out earlier and possibly in time, he will be able to hold it longer. He is going per you he has 'peed all over the tiles OUTSIDE my house'. You can try and put paper down (or a wee wee pad on the tile and then move to grass. Hurting the dog each morning and the pup has no idea why will just lead to anxiety. He is housebroken and per you going outside -- now you have to figure out a way for him to go where you would like. You can walk him earlier.
  • Lucy - 2011-12-28
    Never beat a dog! Are you walking the dog outside? If you are just letting him out by himself..please change this routine and take him out on a leash and show him where to go potty. This will take time to correct his bad behavior but it can be done, only if you put in the time. (One of my dogs is 9mos, but I walk both of them in the rain and snow). Also, you can remove water early, so he can get all his pee out before you go to bed. But remember to give him water as soon as you get up is the morning. He is just a baby and can not hold his pee too long. But if you don't have the time to spend with him to train... either find him a new owner or get the water hose out and wash the tiles off each morning.
  • sk - 2011-12-31
    You don't deserve to have a dog if you are going to beat him!
  • amanda smith - 2012-01-06
    No wonder he is peeing all over the have pissed him off literally. don't beat your animal, how dare you!
  • Suzanne - 2012-01-16
    Do not hit your dog. He won't learn that way. Keep him a crate or the bathroom at night. Make sure you feed him just twice an day, take him out about 15-20 minutes later, praise him when he makes. At bedtime, lock him in the crate. Put a towel or old blanket in the bottom. Take him right out to make in the morning. Praise him again. Look online for good hints about potty training, too. Good luck!
  • debbie - 2012-04-27
    I would take him away from you
  • Donna Castro - 2012-04-28
    Are people so 'stupid' that they would actually hit a dog? Any breed of dog. We raised the most wonderful rott. with the help of a trainer, he was the best dog ever. We now have a long hair chihuahua we rescused from a shelter. Make a loud nosie when they bite, or are doing something wrong, they learn quickly. Donna
  • Cindy - 2012-05-07
    I wish I knew where you lived, you are abusing this poor chic, I have a 12 week old and would never think of hitting him, or hurting him in any way at all, maybe you need anger management classes and but first please put your dog up for adoption or give it to some that loves dogs
  • tootie - 2012-05-09
    I have found with my chihuahua, that if you get into a routine helps alot. I routinely get up at a certain time and take mine outside to the same spot, this has helped with accidents tremendously.
  • Holly - 2012-05-12
    Never beat a dog! My dog was beaten and now I give him extra protection, he is also a long-haired Chihuahua and personally I would take him away from you! You should be kind and use a POSITIVE attitude! Seriously, you make me wanna cry because you have beaten your dog!
  • loretta hoolmaa - 2012-05-14
    if u beat your dog YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE ONE
  • vicest - 2012-05-30
    My long hair pees too so I take her out before I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up and this helps a lot. She hardly ever pees in the house. Chihuahuas are strong willed dogs and don't respond well to being hit or beaten so try and not do that anymore. It's a little dog and it needs a lot of attention and I'm sorry but you decided to get the dog and take the time to do what your dog needs you to do and that's take her out to pee
  • gloria - 2012-07-23
    try putting his nose in it some times that will work
  • Selena - 2012-07-23
    A stern tone of voice is best, don't beat!!!!
  • Michelle - 2012-11-13
    I am finding the word beat problematic because its sounds harsh. I'm sure you just mean you reprimand. Try not to yell I have learned that Chico cringes and looks so ashamed everytime I do it and he's not listening to what I have to say. What I've found works is to say 'NO' when you see him start, stick his nose in the pee, and then take him to the litter box or outside or puppy pad and put him there and tell him firmly. 'THIS is where you go!' I did that and the next day when I was standing in the bathroom he walked over to the litterbox and made sure I looked as he went, I was so proud. I will forgive him for missing with his wee wee....he still made the attempt! LOL Michelle

    Um, why beat the dog?
  • Jan - 2014-06-10
    Never hit a dog. Unless you catch him in the act, he will never know what he did and why you are mad at him. Dogs live in the moment. I cant believe you would do such a horrible thing like beating your dog.He is to small to defend himself. If I knew where you lived I would take that dog away from you with a couple of cops behind me.
  • Beverly Martin - 2015-04-09
    You beat him??!! You should be flogged and never be allowed to have an animal friend again. So what if he pees on the tile outside your house. That is what a hose is for. Obviously your dog finds it to be an appropriate place. Please don't tell us this tiny animal is left outside all night. I believe you need to be reported to the Humane Society. I have had dogs all my life and I find a soft, quiet, firm voice to let them know you disapprove, then show them the proper spot works.
  • Anonymous - 2015-04-27
    Never under any circumstances 'bet' a dog. A firm vocal 'No' and gently pick him up and place him where you's like him to pee. Three or four times your dog will stop the unwanted behavior. Unless he's a nervous wreck around you!
  • Fog - 2015-05-02
    I will beat you & report you u coward
  • Dee - 2015-05-14
    I won't even touch on the subject of you 'beating' your dog. Many before me already have and hopefully you've gotten the point. Basically, you are a criminal who should be brought up on animal abuse charges. To the person who suggested 'putting his nose in it,' this is absolutely the WRONG thing to do. This ridiculous notion teaches NOTHING. A dog is not capable of understanding why he's getting his nose forced in his own excrement. Please, pick up a reputable training book ie: The Monks of New Skete or go online and do some research. Training has come a long way. The above 'methods' are archaic and in no way have ever proven effective. In fact, as others already mentioned, those 'methods' create more/different problems and issues for the poor animal.
  • A.A. - 2015-07-06
    How dare you beating your dog. How would you like it, if your parents beat you up when your little every time your making your diaper wet. You don't deserve to have a dog, give it up , give it to someone who can take responsibility and patience. It seems like your so proud telling your story how you beat your dog.. I wish I know who you are.
  • ALEX - 2015-07-23
    Im pretty sure he didnt literally mean he is beating his dog. . . . Get a grip here. . . I spank my dog if he pees on the carpet and i put his nose in it and he know not to do it again because it rarly ever happens. But dont do it later he will get confused. Do it as it happens. Dogs are just like children they need to be taught right from wrong and they will understand by your tone and movements. . Just make sure you do it properly.
  • Anonymous - 2015-10-01
    Shame on you. You should be protecting your pet. Never ever beat any animals. All they want is love and to feel safe. How could you hurt any animal? Someone should hit you so you know how your pet feels. My heart aches. I don't understand how someone could hurt a pet. How do you think he feels? I wish that I could protect him from you. Please don't ever hit him or any other animal again. I am so upset just thinking about your pet. I wish I could keep your dog because I would give him so much love.

  • cindy - 2015-11-07
    First of all...... it's considered abuse to beat him. That's your first mistake
  • Anonymous - 2016-03-06
    What kind of person would "beat" any animal. Especially one who weighs 5lbs at most? Excuse me you are already outside what is wrong with you. You have trained ur dog to go potty outside and he is still a baby all you are doing is makeing him nervous to go outside to go potty. Your training him to piss in your house by hitting him every time he goes on your preciouse OUTSIDE tile. Find someone who will love and cherish that baby. And you keep your OUTSIDE tile.
