I'm getting a new little sister

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

Chihuahuas are great dogs! But you do have to be very careful with them... especially if there are larger dogs around. Be sure not to leave your new pup alone with a large dog. Also, never leave her on the furniture and walk off. Make sure to put puppy on the floor so she doesn't try to jump off and end up breaking a leg. Feed a puppy several times a day so that she doesn't become hypoglycemic (they can die very quickly from this). Fifi even got 2am feedings when she was a pup. You should really go buy a breed specific book on chis. It will cover everything from feeding, grooming, training, potential health problems, etc. Also make sure your new baby gets vaccinations and regular vet check-ups.

Don't let things- bother you!

Its best not to get a chi before it is 12 weeks old:

Please wait until your chi baby is atleast 12 weeks old, when mommy brought me home I was only 6 weeks old and she didnt know any better. I almost died from being hypoglycemic!! I am doing fine now, but the longer a chi baby can be with its mommy and brothers and sisters the better!
