    I have a very cute Jack Russell terrier and he is very cute. His name is Tycin. He is 5 years old and I must say that he is very attractive but usually the problem which I face is this that he digs holes a lot. He has digges so many holes nearby our place which is very much unacceptable. So, guys I need some suggestions regarding this. I really want to stop him but he never listen.

    We are LUCKY with our dog. He is 4 now and we only had a problem(with his peeing) with him the first couple months. I don't know what we did but he will only go on the pad or go outside #1 and #2. We have rewarded him EVERY time after he goes #2 on the pad(maybe that was it for him). We don't let him jump up on the bed to sleep, he always goes to his cage EVERY NIGHT to go to bed. The only problem we have is giving him his pill for worms. NOTHING gets past him NOTHING. We tried everything. Because he likes yogurt we kinda force it down. We clean him off afterwards. That and his barking at anyone who comes on the porch OR who he hears outside(mailman, UPS-FEDX drivers). Would we get another dog this good if something would happen to him? I think not.

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?

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.

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.
