@tubby1,
Since they're relatively small dogs, they don't eat much and they don't need a lot exercising.

You need to make sure that you get the pup from a respectable breeder. These faddish dogs can get really neurotic with the plethora of genetic diseases that afflict these factory produced breeds. The worst ones can be nervous freaks of nature.

But they still can be cute and convenient sized for small apartment living.

@tsarstepan,
I knew a woman once who had to wipe her chihuahua's butt every time it went to do number two's, because it always got stuck....mind you it was the runt of the litter.

A friend's mother had a chihuahua in an apartment and it learned to use a litter box. (She later inherited it and her cats were not impressed.)

Hi tubby1,

every animal require responsibility on your part. It doesn't matter if the dog
is small or big, you need to care for it just the same, with the exception that a
bigger dog needs more exercise. Small dogs, especially chihuahuas can be
a nuisance as they like to yap quite a bit.

I would suggest you head down to your local animal shelter and spend some
time there. Chances are that you'll find lots of chihuahuas t who were
dumped there when they became a nuisance. Those poor dogs suffer the
same fate as the dalmatians did a few years back after the movie (101 dalmatian)

@tubby1,
In addition to what CalamityJane wrote, yorkies also tend to be barkers or yappers. Both breeds like to chew on walls.

I have a 1/2 yorkie 1/2 chihuahua that I got when she was approx. 4 months old. I am lucky in that she doesn't bark unless someone is outside my house. I was unlucky in that she chewed on the walls when I wasn't home. She did stop doing that and finally I could fix the walls.
