Chorkies are an adorable combo of the Chihuahua and Yorkie and can be more docile and affectionate than other Chihuahua mixes, while still retaining that naughtiness found in Yorkies. This is a much smaller mix compared to others, so you can easily carry a Chorkie in a small carrier.

Rat-Chas are a combination of a Chihuahua and a Rat Terrier. With this mix, you’ll never be bored. They’re bold and curious, attacking small prey when given the chance. If you’re lucky, the Rat-Cha will retain the gorgeous Rat Terrier spotted markings and long, soft ears.

4. Shi-Chi (Chihuahua + Shih Tzu)

The Shi-Chi is a mix of the Chihuahua and affectionate Shih Tzu. Shih Tzu’s typically have long, silky hair, which could combine beautifully with long-haired Chihuahua fur. Shi-Chi’s can be equally playful and slightly larger than the average Chihuahua.

5. Chi-Poo (Chihuahua + Poodle)

One thing’s for sure about the Chihuahua Poodle mix: these pups are friendly for those with allergies! If you’re not jumping on the Doodle train, perhaps a Chi-Poo is for you. Both breeds are intelligent, active pups, and hopefully, your dog inherits a more eager-to-please demeanor thanks to the intelligence of the Poodle parent. Also note that their smaller size likely comes from the smaller Poodle breeds, although a larger breed is possible with the Standard Poodle.

6. Jack-Chi (Chihuahua + Jack Russell Terrier)

This fun combo of a Chihuahua and Jack Russell Terrier keeps you on your toes. This dog is quick, alert, and curious. They know what they want and are highly vigilant, especially when protecting what’s theirs. Both breeds can be wary of children, so be careful when bringing them into families.

7. Chug (Chihuahua + Pug)

Known for their quirkiness and chunky stature, Pugs bring a special sass to this Chihuahua mix. They will steal your heart with their charm and big, bulgy eyes. But be careful, as they’ll use their adorable smile to get out of trouble! Ultimately, the Chug is a great option to add to the family, but you will need to brush up on some common health conditions found in brachycephalic breeds.

8. Chiweenie (Chihuahua + Dachshund)

Chiweenies are long and slightly chubby with distinctive long legs, just like their better half. But like their Chihuahua counterparts, they’re alert and have no problem saying what’s on their mind. Because of their attitudes, Chiweenies do best in families with older or no children.

9. Cheagle (Chihuahua + Beagle)

The Cheagle, a cross between a Chihuahua and a Beagle, is a popular designer breed. This dog is a bit hefty while retaining the famous long beagle ears. They have a large head, pointed muzzle, and a beautiful double coat. Cheagles can be vivacious and very social and can occasionally inherit the Beagle howl as well.

10. Malchi (Chihuahua + Maltese)

The Malchi is a mix between the Chihuahua and Maltese. This mix is small, gentle, and loving, but still has an attitude and loves to show off. Malchis can have either long or short fur and come in several colors, although pure white and tan are the most common. Malchis do best in homes with adults and no children, as their small size can make them prone to serious injury if they’re mishandled.

11. Chion (Chihuahua + Papillon)

The Chion, a mix of Chihuahua and Papillon, is a small and social dog. They can be a bit temperamental, but with good socialization, they can get along with kids and other pets just fine. Also, Chions have either medium or long hair and require daily brushing to stay beautiful.

12. Chipin (Chihuahua + Min Pin)

Chipins are fun, energetic apartment dogs that are playful and overall make great family pets. Also called a Pinhuhua and Minchi, this dog has a short coat that usually comes in black or tan. Chipins are pretty territorial, but they love people and make great watchdogs.

13. Boston Huahua (Chihuahua + Boston Terrier)

Boston Huahuas are one of the most heartwarming Chihuahua mixes. These dogs are loving, playful, and lively. Boston Terriers are known to be “polite” dogs, and although Chihuahuas are known to be the exact opposite, this mix retains both loving sides while keeping the guard-dog instinct. They also do very well in small families with older children.

14. Italian Greyhuahua (Chihuahua + Italian Greyhound)

The Italian Greyhuahua is a cross between the Chihuahua and the Italian Greyhound. These dogs love people, although you have to ensure they’re socialized properly. But they’re also very intelligent. The Chihuahua’s stubbornness can shine through, and potty training is a challenge, but with some patience, this breed can make a great addition to a home.

15. Cheeks (Chihuahua + Pekingese)

The Cheeks is a cross between the Chihuahua and the Pekingese. This dog is small, fluffy, and has a shorter muzzle than most Chihuahua mixes. Their floppy ears and loving demeanor make them irresistible, although they can be a bit grumpy at times. They don’t really tolerate children, so homes with older kids are best.

16. French Bullhuahua (Chihuahua + Frenchie)

The French Bullhuahua mixes with the charismatic Frenchie to make an independent, stubborn, protective mix. French Bullhuahuas can be pretty fun at times but can also be a handful since they’re easily provoked. It’s no surprise this mix loves attention and gladly accepts any interaction with people, even if it means barking at strangers.

17. Chizer (Chihuahua + Schnauzer)

The Chizer is a combo of the Chihuahua and Schnauzer. The result is an alert, gentle, bold dog that loves their owners but doesn’t tolerate children and strangers. With proper handling and early socialization, Chizers can be friendly, laid-back dogs. They’re great for homes with older children and do very well in city life.

18. Chi-Spaniel (Chihuahua + Spaniel)

A cross between the Chihuahua and Spaniel, the Chi-Spaniel is an affectionate, confident, friendly dog who can become very attached to one person. Of all the Chihuahua mixes, this one leans toward the sensitive side and can have their feelings hurt easily. With those long Spaniel ears and soft eyes, who could resist cuddling this tiny mix?

19. Taco Terrier (Chihuahua + Fox Terrier)

The Taco Terrier, a mix of Chihuahua and Fox Terrier, is one of the smallest mixed breeds with big dog energy. At less than 6 pounds, the Taco Terrier has short to medium-length fur, a pointed muzzle, and floppy ears. They’re very courageous and will protect their families at all costs, even if it means “breaking the rules.” Because of their strong will, you have to be firm with Taco Terriers.

20. Toxirn (Chihuahua + Cairn)

The Toxirn mixes the Dog of Mexico with the Dog of Kansas—the Chihuahua and Cairn Terrier. Toxirns are small, wirey, frumpy dogs with tiny upright ears and a muscular body. Toxirns have a spunk that tells people they don’t care what you think. They love spending time with family, going on walks, and even hanging out with other animals. Ultimately, Toxirns are one of the better family-friendly Chihuahua mixes.

21. Shiba-Chi (Chihuahua + Shiba Inu)

Shiba-Chi’s don’t have any regulations right now, so it’s hard to guess their temperament or physical features. Generally, both breeds tend to be vocal, temperamental, confident dogs, so you can expect a similar temperament in a Shiba-Chi.

22. Chi Chi (Chihuahua + Chinese Crested)

The Chi Chi is an adorable mix of the Chihuahua and Chinese Crested. Both are small, energetic, alert dogs that do very well in city life. Chi Chis are reserved at first, but once they’ve deemed you as friend material, you’ll see their spunky side. Chi Chis are well known for their fluffy, wispy fur, so expect daily grooming with this breed.

23. Schipper Chi (Chihuahua + Schipperke)

The Schipper Chi is a Chihuahua Schipperke combo. It’s not as common as other Chihuahua mixes, but it sure is one of the cutest. Schipper Chis are reserved but highly vigilant dogs that love to play. They have sturdy bodies and are short but confident. Schipper Chis are close to their family members and love to follow them everywhere. Thankfully, children and other pets are tolerated.

24. Chussel (Chihuahua + Brussels Griffon)

The Chussel—AKA the perpetual grouch—is a cross between the Chihuahua and Brussels Griffon. This is a smaller mix with wire fur, short muzzle, and bent ears. Chussels can be very bossy and stubborn, so training can be a challenge. Chussels are very fearful of strangers and take time to warm up to people, but they make great companions for families with children and other pets.

25. Cheenese (Chihuahua + Havanese)

A Cheenese combines a Chihuahua with a Havanese. The result is a faithful, affectionate dog with straight, silky locks and large, bulging eyes. This is one of the more social Chihuahua mixes. These dogs are bright, independent pups that can fall on the sensitive side. Like most Chihuahua mixes, Cheeneses don’t do well with children or other pets.

26. Chin-wa (Chihuahua + Japanese Chin)

The Chin-wa is a very small mix of Chihuahua and Japanese Chin. Their coats can be long and straight, and the tail dramatically curls back. The ears can be erect or floppy, depending on genetics. Chin-was are alert, loyal, and affectionate. They don’t like to be left alone. They also don’t require a lot of exercise and do very well in big cities and apartments.

27. Chi-Apso (Chihuahua + Lhasa Apso)

Chi-Apsos combine the Chihuahua and Lhasa Apso into a floppy-eared fuzzy dog with a slight underbite. Chi-Apsos have long, sturdy bodies with short legs and dense coats. The muzzle is about medium in length. Ultimately, this is a friendly, trainable dog that’s good for families. They can be stubborn, though. They do well around children, but strangers are hit-or-miss.

28. Chi-Chon (Chihuahua + Bichon Frise)

The Chi-Chon is a popular mix of Chihuahua and Bichon Frise. This little pup is sassy and playful and makes a great family pet. They’re full of energy but equally sensitive, so don’t be too harsh with punishments. Their sweet demeanor means they are great with kids, but there should always be adult supervision nearby. Chi Chon coats are generally soft and fluffy and require little maintenance.

29. Chi-Whip (Chihuahua + Whippet)

The Chi-Whip is an interesting combo of the spunky Chihuahua and agile Whippet. These dogs combine grace with energy and are generally very curious. They make great athletic companions to active families. Their looks can be unpredictable, but they typically have sleek coats with a slender frame.

30. Chilier (Chihuahua + King Charles)

Similar to a Chi-Spaniel, the Chilier is a combination of the Chihuahua and King Charles Spaniel. Chiliers tend to inherit the long ears of the King Charles Spaniel, although their coat colors and texture can vary. Chiliers are a nice combination of sweet and sassy. They’re reserved but still friendly and are willing to give friendship a chance.

31. Affenhuahua (Chihuahua + Affenpinscher)

Also known as the Chipinscher, the Affenhuahua is a sweet and sassy pup who has a tail that won’t quit. This short-legged fluff is lively, intelligent, and stubborn. They have big personalities and intend to get their way, so you have to be firm in training. But stay vigilant—Affenhuahuas know when to turn on the charm!dogster paw divider

Medium to Large Mixes

32. Chipit (Chihuahua + Pittie)

The Chipit is a beautiful combination of the Chihuahua and Pit Bull. This combo is also slightly more muscular, larger, and friendlier toward children than a standard Chihuahua. Pit Bulls aren’t nearly as sassy as Chihuahuas either, so you could have a beautiful combination of sweet and sassy with this mix.

33. Chorgi (Chihuahua + Corgi)

With Chorgis, you get all the fun of a Corgi with the same attitude as a Chihuahua. They smile like they’re on vacation and are extremely loving. Chorgis tend to be larger than Chihuahuas yet slightly smaller than Corgis, but you can find a smaller Chorgi depending on the genetics.

34. Chi-Dane-Dane (Chihuahua + Great Dane)

A Chi-Dane-Dane is much larger than most Chihuahua mixes with a head shaped like a Greyhound. They love cuddling but maintain their Chihuahua-like fierceness. They’re very relaxed dogs and do well in city life, although they’re tough to manage when you get them going.

35. Shepchi (Chihuahua + German Shepherd)

Image Credit: Imasillypirate, Shutterstock

Another mix that seems impossible, the Shepchi combines the Chihuahua and German Shepherd into an unpredictable dog. Some Shepchis are alert and friendly, and others are skittish and standoffish. There are no guidelines for this mix, so it’s always a gamble.

36. Labrahuahua (Chihuahua + Labrador)

Image Credit: Cyndi Corya, Shutterstock

This mix comes with all of the wonderful qualities found in a Labrador with the protective instincts found in Chihuahuas. Labrahuahuas are very social and love almost everyone. Snuggling is their favorite activity, but they willingly jump off the couch for a long walk. They can be a little stubborn, but the Labrador’s eager-to-please attitude shines through eventually.

37. Chiweiler (Chihuahua + Rottweiler)

The Chiweiler isn’t as common as other Chihuahua mixes, but they’re certainly just as cute and fun to have around. Also known as the Rottahuha, Chiweilers can be willful and stubborn, but equally as loyal and affectionate. They love to spend time with their owners and can be big balls of energy.

38. Golden-Chi (Chihuahua + Golden Retriever)

If you love Golden Retrievers and don’t want a Doodle, why not try a Golden-Chi? Although their personalities are very different, the Chihuahua and Golden Retriever make an energetic, intelligent, family-friendly mix. Golden-Chis can be a lot more stubborn than Retrievers, though, which can make them harder to train.

39. Chi-Dobe (Chihuahua + Doberman)

A Chi-Dobe, which is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Doberman, can look like a Miniature Pinscher from afar. However, they can grow to be up to 60 pounds depending on genetics. Chi-Dobes are energetic, loyal, territorial dogs. They only tolerate strangers but are affectionate toward their owners. They like to bark and shed a lot, so be wary of apartment life with this breed.

40. Boxachi (Chihuahua + Boxer)

The Boxachi is a relatively new mix combining the Chihuahua and Boxer. There isn’t much information on this mix, but you can expect a loyal, alert breed that is wary of strangers and devoted to their owner. Both the Boxer and Chihuahua can be stubborn, so training could be challenging.

41. Borderhuahua (Chihuahua + Border Collie)

The Borderhuahua combines the Chihuahua and Border Collie into a stubborn, loyal, and energetic breed. Borderhuahuas come in either black and white or brown and white. They often have long, silky coats with shorter muzzles and wide-set eyes like the Chihuahua. These are very fun dogs to own, but they’re harder to train than purebred Border Collies.

42. Aussie-Chi (Chihuahua + Aussie)

The Aussie-Chi is a fairly new crossbreed of a Chihuahua and Australian Shepherd. Combined, these two breeds make a loyal, easy-going, trainable companion that is equally affectionate. Aussie-Chis do relatively well around children and other animals, but some dogs may be more tolerant than others.

43. Chi-Heeler (Chihuahua + Heeler)

Chi-Heelers are an unpredictable breed since there are no standards set right now. Generally, Chi-Heelers tend to be highly active, intelligent, trainable dogs. They’re less vocal than other Chihuahua mixes but still have a lively attitude. Physically, they have robust bodies and small heads while maintaining some of the Heeler’s spotted fur.

44. Chisenji (Chihuahua + Basenji)

The Chisenji is another mix with no guidelines and very little reference. But generally, this mix has an alert, upbeat personality with a compact body. It’s not commonly known how they do around children and other pets since they’re rare, but both breeds tend to only tolerate children and other pets.

45. Chimation (Chihuahua + Dalmatian)

The Chimation—a cross between a Chihuahua and Dalmatian—has the iconic spotted look of a Dalmatian, similar to a Blue Heeler, but with a slender body and floppy ears. Chimations love their owners but are wary of strangers. Little kids wouldn’t do well with this breed, but older kids and docile pets would do just fine.

46. Chimo (Chihuahua + American Eskimo)

Chimos combine the stubborn Chihuahua with the friendly, eager-to-please American Eskimo. This breed is relatively friendly and patient and gets along very well with other animals. Small children and strangers are only tolerated. With enough socialization, Chimos prove themselves to be easy-going, loving creatures.

47. American Bullhuahua (Chihuahua + American Bully)

American Bullhuahuas are feisty, high-energy dogs. They love running around and enjoy playing with people and animals they know. Supervision is always recommended around other animals, as they can be temperamental, but strangers and small children can become their friends over time.

48. Husky-Chi (Chihuahua + Husky)

Husky-Chis have the striking colors of the Husky with the big boss personality of the Chihuahua. This isn’t a common mix since the two breeds are very different in size, so there are no guidelines for this breed right now. Generally, both breeds are very territorial, vocal, and loyal.

49. Scotchi (Chihuahua + Scottish Terrier)

A combination of the Scottish Terrier and Chihuahua, this a strong-willed mix with a wiry coat, long muzzle, and expressive eyes. Scotchis are considered hypoallergenic and only need a short walk per day. Scotchis are not welcoming of strangers, but they love those they accept. They’re not friendly toward other people or pets but can be accepting of others who match their demeanor. So, Scotchis do best in homes with small families with no children or with single people.
