Is the Chihuahua / Chinese Crested Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Chi-Chi, Chi Chi Dog

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 Chi Chi Dog is a cross between a pure Chihuahua and a pure Chinese Crested, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an eye-catching toy that fits easily into many families. And by "eye-catching," we do mean you sometimes need to have a unique sense of humor to appreciate this mix.

Appearance / health:
Year after year, Chinese Crested and Chinese Crested Mixes win the title of World's Ugliest Dog. The Chi Chi Dog could be partly bald. If you're into "so ugly they're cute" breeds and mixes, this one might be worth a look. However, the appearance of a mix is never guaranteed, and some of these little dogs are more conventionally attractive.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, owners have described their Chi Chi Dogs as being utterly devoted. They are social and expect to be with their people, so don't choose this mix if you think you might weary of the novelty and start leaving it alone for long hours of the day.
