Chipin Characteristics

The Chipin is an intelligent, energetic hybrid breed descending from a Chihuahua and a Minature Pinscher. With a short, easy-to-maintain coat, and a knack for learning quickly, they’re often a good match for families and new dog owners. They adapt well to apartment living with moderate exercise each day.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

Commonly found in black, brown, and cream-colored coats, the Chipin is a very small breed, standing about 8-12 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 5-15 pounds. This portable size makes them popular for those living in high-rise apartments or small spaces. These dogs prefer the company of adults but can learn to be around children and other animals with early socialization and obedience training.
 
Like many other small dog breeds, the Chipin is often strong-willed and can think it’s quite the “big man on campus.” Keep an eye out for your Chipin if he is socializing with bigger dogs, since he may overestimate his size and pick a fight! However, this assertive nature can come in handy as they make great protectors and loyal companions. To keep them obedient, set rules and stick to them. Chipins thrive with clearly enforced boundaries. 
 
Chipins can suffer from dental issues due to their small-sized jaw. Taking your Chipin to get regular checkups at the vet will ensure any dental disease is caught early.
 
Chipins are easy to groom and keep clean and only need moderate amounts of exercise. They may start barking a lot if left alone too long – make sure they get plenty of love and attention!
