Chi Chi Puppies

The Chi Chi is a crossbreed of the Chihuahua and the Chinese Crested. It’s unknown where and when this dog breed was initially bred, but it was first developed as a family companion dog. For example, this breed is smart, friendly, and prone to separation anxiety. If you want to learn more about Chi Chi puppies, keep reading.

Where to get Chi Chi Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Chi Chi puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption.

Most of these dogs have been at these places for a long time, waiting for the right family to come along. So, you can adopt and not shop while still getting a new furry friend. Plus, you’ll provide them with a forever, loving home. Celine…

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. Since this breed is a designer dog, you won’t go through the American Kennel Club since they don’t recognize this breed. You’ll need to find ethical breeders on your own. 

Luckily, you’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so (then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Allow the parents and the litter to live in their home as part of the family without the use of kennels (aside from crate training)
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations

In addition, a good breeder will want to meet with you in person to get to know you so you can meet them, the parents, and the litter before deciding on adoption. Also, they’ll be open and honest with you. For instance, they’ll answer all of your questions about the breeder, breed, dogs and litter, breeding, and adoption.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For instance, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average coat of Chi Chi puppies is between $400 and $1,000. However, the price can vary depending on a few factors, such as the time of year, the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, or the number of puppies in the litter.

Appearance

Chi Chi puppies will grow to be small dogs. For example, they can grow to be about five to 12 inches tall and weigh between four and ten pounds. In addition, they have a medium, straight coat that can come in the following coat colors:

  • Black
  • White
  • Cream
  • Gray
  • Brown

Temperament

If you’re looking for a small lap dog for your family, then the Chi Chi is a good option. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re great around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, as with all dogs, they need early socialization and proper training. They prefer to have someone home with them most of the other. Otherwise, they could get separation anxiety. So, if you’re going to be out of the house for a long time, make sure someone can check in on them throughout the day.

Finally, they have moderate energy levels. They can do well in an apartment or a bigger house with a fenced-in yard.

Chi Chi Puppies – Veterinary Needs

You’ll want to bring this dog to the vet a few times to keep track of its growth and development for the first year. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, for each year after that, you can bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

This breed is prone to inheriting some health issues, such as:

  • Patellar Luxation
  • Glaucoma
  • Lens Luxation
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Dry Eye
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Heart Problems
  • Dental Problems

However, this mixed breed has an average lifespan of about ten to 15 years with proper care. 

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. However, you also want to ensure that it’s appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism. 

Grooming

Grooming will depend on the coat type your doggo inherits. For example, if they have a medium coat, then you’ll want to brush them at least once a week. On the other hand, if they’re hairless, then you’ll need to wipe them down with a damp cloth at least once a week. Also, they’ll be more prone to getting sunburned in the summer.

Otherwise, be sure to keep up with trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, and brushing their teeth regularly.
