I met one for awhile that was pretty well mannered and stable. But this may have to do with the fact that he had a great owner that trained him and was a marathon runner. So that dog got at least 7 miles of running in everyday plus hiking on weekends.

The weims that I've seen board at work all seem to have major seperation axiety issues...right now we have a 13 yr old weim staying with us...apparently his owner has to drug him every time she leaves the house, because he just can't handle being alone & ends up hurting himself.

Very nice looking dogs, but not a breed that I would get.

i do love Weims...i'd be weary about getting one with a chi though. they're big big big dogs, and are also rambunctious, a little hyper, and not the easier to handle. I personally think it'd be too easy for a weim to step on or sit on or fall on or lay on or play-bite or jump on a chi and hurt it.

They are stubborn! But very smart, and do need attention. Lots! The ones I've met, aren't good with children! At all.

Thank you Christine!

I've never had a 'good' experience with one. I've never had a bad experience one per say, but temperament wise, all the individuals I have met have been less than pleasant. Not the qualities I would look for in a dog. Very stubborn, needy, pushy and far too over the top with energy. They can also be snarky with other dogs.

Of course, I'm sure not all Weims are like the above. But the individuals I have met have been exactly as I described.

A Weim and a Chihuauha are not a great mix in my opinion. A 5lb Chi will be no match for an 80lb full-grown, high energy Weimeraner. The risk of accidental injury would be far too high for me to risk.
