    I have a Chihuahua Papillon mix. She was transferred to a local humane society from a kill shelter. She is the smartest dog I’ve ever had. I have searched high and low to find another one like her, but, have had no luck. She gets nervous when there is lots of family around. And she will bite if she thinks we are in danger. Nobody will ever sneak up on us in the middle of the night! I wouldn’t recommend this dog to a large loud family, but, they are great companions for a couple in a calm home. Wish I could find another one.

    We’ve had our little Lacy for about 1 1/2 yrs. She was a rescue dog. The vet thought she was Pap & Terrier mix, but I’m thinking Pap & Chihuahua. She is very smart & very loving. I get a kick out of watching her run. When excited, she almost hops like a rabbit! She is so little & so very joyful! Previously, my smallest dog weighed over 30lbs. Lacy clocks in at about 8lbs with a full belly! She loves our summers & isn’t too fond of the winters. She already has 2 sweaters since her fur is so thin. While she is my dog, I take a 2nd place to my Mom. Lacy adores her!

    My mom and step dad rescued Tucker from an abandoned house, he and his friend Sarah were both covered in fleas and had been neglected for weeks in the summer. After fixing them up and many vet visits, my mom kept Sarah and I took Tucker. He was just what I needed. I had just lost my roommate and was extremely lonely and sulking in my depression, but he was my reason to get out of bed every morning and to go outside and walk.

    It’s been over a year and I would give my life for him. He’s still a bit nervous around new people, but he’s the most loyal dog I’ve ever known, he’s my little spoon when we go to bed, never leave my side, and only barks when people come to the door or possibly threaten me.

    My depression and anxiety have recently gotten worse, but I’m hoping to register him as a therapy dog so that I can keep him with me in class to stave off my panic attacks.

    Just lost my Mindy yesterday and my heart is breaking. She was such a good friend to my mom and myself. Fabulous companion to my mom, excellent watch dog, great with the grandkids, funny and silly, smarter than most people. No training required, she just knew how to fit into the family.

    Got my Chihuahua Papillon mix from animal shelter. Can not believe someone abandoned her at Dollar Genrral’s busy parking lot. She is the best thing to happen to me. She is so loving, smart and takes me for great walks. Wouldn’t trade her for anything

    • Billie says:

      That was us. We got mine from the local shelter. He has been a joy. So smart and loving. Could not imagine someone letting him go. Their loss my gain.

    We have just got our little Chion Max, he is fabulous, so clever and funny, he was house trained within a week, could not believe it , such a clever boy, we love him dearly , don’t think we have to worry about loosing him as they live to twenty and more and we are in our 70’s so we will have to put him in our will I think ha ha , we take him to puppy class every week and everyone loves him and he is cleverer than a lot of the big boys,

  9. Colleen Drane says:

    I rescued my Chino (Emma) 2 1/2 years ago. Love her dearly. She is very loyal and lovable. She loves people and other dogs. She is the best dog I ever owned.

  10. Karen Gunter says:

    Our Chino (Star) is not a licensed Therapy dog but she came into my life at a kinda dark time and she saved me. They are such a sweet and loving breed and will make you laugh. She is very protective and Loyal. They love their daily walks and play time. We are Blessed to have her.

  11. Suzette Koshi says:

    I love my little Chion poochie. He sleeps on me and yes he loves to play with and bite his daddy cat and my

    chihuahua/shitzu. This is not a breed for small children. When he gets tired he gets alittle moody but he lets me know when he needs to recharge his batteries

  12. Jennifer Almestica says:

    Got my Chi on 6 months ago….love him to pieces…very loyal, energetic, fiesty…you must be consistent with training and if you are, it will be successful…he loves to go outside, run in the park…all in all a GREAT dog

  13. Rick says:

    We got our little 13 pound baby 2 years ago as a rescue, she was abandoned at a Safeway. Best thing that we have ever gotten at any supermarket! She is so smart, gentle, loving, faithful, athletic, she averages 22 miles a week hiking. I can’t say enough good about her. Our neighbor just today purchased a rescue Chion from a shelter, he is as sweet as our Frannie. Dread the day we lose her….

    I rescued my little chion 6 years ago. His name is Boz. He is the sweetest smartest dog I have ever had. Loves everyone and loves to play ball in the park.

      I don’t know if you will see this but I purchased my chion from a woman who needed to sell her for money. The dog weighed 4 lbs and shook constantly for several weeks. Eventually she shook less and less. Two years later she has come a long way but is still very cautious. I have never ever yelled at her. No problem. She trys real hard to be a good dog. Think she had been caged before I got her as she found my house and yard overwhelming and too big. She has finally learned to like her food and put on weight. She was afraid of everything and everyone. Now she is just wary. What it takes is a ton of your time and love. I am retired so have the time. If you work it may be difficult to give this dog what she or he needs. My email is mjrlovescats@gmail.com if you would like to chat more but the answer is lots and lots of love and attention.

    • Christy says:

      Just give her some time. She just needs to gain confidence. Just be patient and soft when you talk to her. That has always helped me when I had timid dogs. She’s also young. So she has lots of room to grow!

    • Parker M Bell says:

      Give her lots of love… they are very emotional. Please have her examined by a vet. Many vets will do an initial exam for very cheap.

  18. Chachi's Mama says:

    Our little chion, Charlie, was the gentlest (yet spunky!) & most loving dog I’ve ever known. He passed away recently and I miss him terribly. I am looking for another after my wonderful experience with this sweet breed.

  19. john Ioannouu says:

    Best dog I ever had will break my heart when she goes.

  20. Rhonda says:

    I bought my Chion from a breader a year and a half ago my daughter has 2 from the same breaded a male and female they are small 3 &5# and have the brown coat she had hers for a couple years so thought I’d get one from the same place but got the black and white instead the breader said it was only the second time they ever had a black and white (all the others in the litter were the brown coat) needless to say he is not the little lap dog like my daughters he has grown double and triple the lengthy her dogs and weights 21# at last vet visit. Every one mistakes him for a boarder collie even my vet…lol….but he has become a great little companion to my husband and I. He is very active and loves to play with the laser every night. We got him a few months before we had to put our golden retriever/chow mix dog down. He is very loyal and loves people.

  21. Katie says:

    My little Chion was supposedly a “chihuahua” but looked just like the mom so guessing the mom was the generation 1. Definite characteristics of the Papillon including loving to fetch little toys, and chasing after flies! She is more feisty than our full chi, and can get herself into trouble with big dogs. Also loves to play stalk and pounce with the cat. Only weighs 3 lbs.

  22. Gregg Rasor says:

    Where can I find these dogs for sale? We just lost ours to old age! Best dog we ever had, and very loyal to my wife! She is broken hearted and I really would like to find one for her.

  23. Ahman says:

    This is really out of date. Pahuahua’s are a hardy dog. They handle all types of weather, well as long as they are on the move. Their ears need to be combed regularly and a nice bath monthly, they shun baths, but after they show lots of love and affection after. Their hair is unique in that it has little to no smell and should only be trimmed and not cut. They do like to rough house on the bed and floor, plus should be walked twice a day to keep the barking down.

    Food wise at a young age they like Apples and Banana’s, but as they get older a little raw meat is wonderful for them a few times a month. Dog food wise they tend to lean towards poultry and should not eat human food as they are prone to gaining weight.

    They are mixed tempered, depending on the mix of Chihuahua Papillon.
