Actually, even well bred and well socialized chis can shake/shiver. My girls do when they're cold... they even sleep underneath the covers in bed, whereas Tucker can't stand to be covered up.
I think it just has to do with them being so small, they loose body heat quickly.
And yeah, I don't recommend most breeds to people when they ask what the "right" breed is for them.
I know people who think all Chis shiver all the time, are snappy and afraid of their own shadow. They obviously never met the ones like I saw at the weight pull ... now THAT is a sight!! lol And this was proper size too ...
