Is the Chihuahua / Australian Terrier Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Chihuahua / Australian Terrier Mix is a cross between a pure Chihuahua and a pure Australian Terrier, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Chihuahua or the Australian Terrier traits dominate. Either way, you can expect a small, often scrappy little dog that can make a fine family pet.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, there are some reports that the Chihuahua / Australian Terrier Mix can be "feisty" and a bit of a diva. Know how to socialize and train a proud, attention-loving little dog that thrives on attention.
