Just this past week, my wife and I suffered a loss in our family when our 6 1/2 year old dog ran out in front of a truck and got killed. We have about five acres of land that she loved to run around.She was an extremely smart girl who would listen and never before ran in the road...she just wanted to play with another dog that was across the street. What we are wanting to know is if anyone can help determine her breed. She was given to us in a box when she was just a few weeks old by someone who came home to her sitting in a box on their step. She was like a child to us and now she is gone. She weighed around 8-10 pounds. I have attached a photo of her for anyone who could help identify her breed because we would someday loved to find another.

Her picture is on her profile...Please help...

Possibly a Toy Fox Terrier, Chihuahua or mixed?

She looks minpin Chihuahua mix to me too! I know where I live there are several in the shelter. Go on www.petfinder.com and type in miniature pincher and the mixes will come up as well. I am so sorry about your dog. There was a dog that looked exactly like that who was adopted last week at the shelter here so I think u will be able to find what u are looking for at the shelter.

I looked at her pics and she reminds me a lot of my dog, who is a dachshund chihuahua mix. She had the arched back, same face, same ears.
Did she like to tunnel in the covers, sit/stand up on her hand legs ? chiweenies are masters at tunneling.

my condolences. she looked like a sweet girl. hug

she certainly looks like she was a chihuahua/dachshund ("chiweenie")> there are many in shelters, to echo the post above

Thank you all for your responses. One thing common in all of them is that she must have Chihuahua in the mix. She did love to stand on her back legs and get way down under the blankets on the couch or the bed. Also, when she was in the yard and very excited, she run real fast and sometimes almost look like a deer the way she would start hopping about...fastest dog I've ever seen.

Most everyone is agreeing on the fact that she was either a Minpin/Chihuahua or a Chiweenie mix. I have looked up pictures of both of these and they both look very similar. Once again, thank all of you for your responses...

I'm so sorry! My first dog died after being hit by a car. I can imagine how hard you are taking it.


She looks more like Rat Terrier and Chihuahua to me.

I am so, so sorry for your loss.cry

Looking at the pictures, I would say perhaps a Chipin? (Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher)

I am almost 100% sure she has Chihuahua. She is long like Hazel is too and Hazel is a 1/3 dachshund, so she may be part that as well.

My guess would be a (Chiweenie) Chihuahua/Dachshund mix.
