  • Overview

  • This tiny designer dog is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund. First developed in the late 1990s, Chiweenies most often have the large, Chihuahua ears and long, low body of the Dachshund, but vary in their coloring and hair length. These dogs tend to be vocal, are generally easy to train, and are well-suited for indoor living, in apartments or larger homes.

  • Dachshund

    Originating in Germany, this dog was historically not intended to become the easy-going lap dog it is today. Dachshunds were bred to be badger-hunting dogs, with their sensitive sense of smell and low-to-the-ground stature. Today, Dachshunds come in two sizes (standard and miniature) and in three varieties (smooth-, wire- and long-haired). They are curious and friendly in nature. These long-bodied, lively pups are sure to steal the hearts of everyone they meet.

  • Chihuahua

    Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world, and are one of the oldest as well. They are ideal lap dogs, with loving and sweet personalities. Chihuahuas tend to attach quickly and strongly to their owners, and do best with older children because of their delicate bone structure and small size. These loyal, sassy dogs come in two varieties (smooth coat and long coat), and typically have a medium energy level that is perfect for living in either a home or an apartment.
