The Chion is a crossbreed of the Chihuahua and the Papillion. In addition, this doggo goes by a few other nicknames, such as the Pap-Chi, Chi-A-Pap, Pap-Wa, Chi-Pap, or the Papihuahua. Initially bred in the United States in 2001, this hybrid was first developed as a companion dog. For instance, they’re intelligent, stubborn, and friendly. To learn more about Chion puppies, keep reading.

Where to get Chion Puppies

You can begin your search for this pup by calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Chion 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. Hector…

On the other hand, if you have your heart set on getting a puppy and you want to know where the dog came from, then 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, the breed, the dogs and litter, the breeding process, and the adoption process.

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 Chion puppies is between $300 and $750. 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

Chion puppies will grow to be small dogs. For example, they can grow to be about seven to 11 inches tall and weigh between eight and ten pounds. However, they can look like either parent breed when it comes to their appearance.

However, they typically have a short to medium coat that’s wavy. It can also come in a few different coat colors and markings, such as:

  • White
  • Black
  • Fawn
  • Brown
  • Cream

Temperament

This dog breed inherits some of its parents’ best traits. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re good with young children, other dogs, and meeting new people.

However, they need plenty of early socialization and training. They’ll do better with older children and get along well with other pets if socialized well. They can be tricky to train since they’re stubborn. So, if needed, you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out.

Finally, they have moderate energy levels. This doggo will live well in an apartment or a bigger house with a fenced-in yard.

Chion Puppies – Veterinary Needs

As with all dogs, you’ll want to bring your pup to the vet a few times during their first year. This will keep track of their growth and development, and you can also keep them up to date with their shots and boosters.

Then, for every year after that, you can bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

Chion dogs are known to get some health issues, such as:

However, with proper care, this mixed breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 14 years. 

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

This doggo needs regular grooming. For example, you can bathe them at home as needed. Or, you can bring them to a professional grooming salon once every six months or so for a good cleaning.

Also, they shed a moderate amount, so you’ll want to brush their coat at least three to four times a week to keep the loose hairs under control.

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