I know what I am doing and I work for a vet and have for a long time. I have him to continually check Roxy Mae out. She is going to get health tested further by OFA. Anyway, I don't have to explain myself. I just thought you guys would know by now that I am an animal lover, not someone who just wants to make money off of them. Oh well...
No, I understand where you're coming from and apologize for my "jumping" on you. You sound very knowledgeable... I just wear my emotions on my sleeve, somtimes

Oh no no no Invisible. I was just saying that I had found out that Chi's have a tendency to have neck problems. Not that mine had them, just that they are common.

I know what I am doing. Enough said... I am breeding for temperament and size mainly. She is a good sized Chi weighing right at 6lbs. and foot to shoulder she is around 5 and 1/2 or 6 inches tall. Not too small, not too big. Another thing I am going to get checked out before I allow this to happen... I will enroll her in Puppy School and get the instructor to evaluate her temperament.

By the way, apologies accepted!

Pro... as a past reputable breeder, I can understand your wishes.... you've got at least two years ahead of you before you actually are ready to breed. All the tests etc and finding the right sire. This will be your hardest find. You wouldn't believe the calls I got from people wanting to bred to my males ! Unless it's great breeding, it's not worth the thousand dollars you will be putting out. Please get the book " How to raise a Puppy You can live with " It will help you with the decission if you are serious .

Hey Pro! Good for you! If you really want to breed and you're doing it for the right reasons than I applaud you. Have you thought about the risks though I mean LOTS of things can go wrong with the breeding and delivery of puppies and your doggie (who looks VERY cute and VERY sweet) could end up not being the same as she once was or even worse. I think that would be one of my main concerns if I ever bred one of my females (which I know I won't because I don't know the first thing about puppy raising).

Good for you, Julie, Puppies are alot of money, work and time ! To do it right it's at least 1 hours a day per pup...8 pups and 8 wks... plus the socializing . Lots of newpapers, bedding washing etc etc etc. Not to mention proper paper work etc. I loved what I did as my pups went to wonderful homes and I still hear from the few that are living on. I wish I could have continued my line. It was 30 years of wonderful memories and great connections. I'm now into rescue which is very rewarding and not as costly !!

I agree I feel she said everything I wanted to hear she will have Roxy health tested and she said the male will be too. And that will only breed in the distant future. I have no problem with you Pro you sound like you have your priorities straight as far as i can tell. Just make sure she is tested extensively to make sure not even a tiny problem if wrong and all will be cool with me .

Hey Pro, my first thought when I saw your thread was that you know what you are doing. I know you work for a vet and care about dogs a lot. Maybe not everyone knows that.

I hope you'll keep us up-to-date on what's happening. Chi pups must so adorable. I've never seen any.

Innocent question - Is it more dangerous to breed Chi's due to their size? I know very little about different breeds...

And about L4P. She had told us all about what she does before she breeds long before this last litter. Same about how she feeds... Her daily life. She's quite chatty (I love you Scar!!) so I guess there wasn't much else to say... I don't remember you mentioning breeding so maybe that's why people where twitchy lol - my friend is twitchy right now. It's a good word.

Thanks everyone. And I understand everyone's "hastiness." Yes, it is very dangerous to breed Chihuahuas. You have to be very educated to know what you are doing. I have extensively researched the breed and have many more things to learn. I know things can and do go wrong. I saw a very small dog have to have a C-section the other day and that puppy died because the mother wouldn't take to it. Roxy is small right now, but she will grow a little more. She hasn't even had her first estrus yet, so there is no way in heck I would breed her soon.

I know puppies cost a lot of money, but I will have my boss supervising my every move, if something is to go wrong. Plus, I know a lady that shows Papillions and breeds them. Her Pap's are beautiful and wonderful representatives of their breed; I am going to contact her when the time is right for all of this. Thanks L4P for your support, that means a lot to me.

PS. As of right now if I do proceed with my plans, my grandparents'(not the ones who gave up Spud), my aunt, and me and my fiance are keeping a puppy. Plus, if the sire's parents so desire, they will get pick of the litter. So more than likely I am not going to be "selling" any puppies. And all of these people know how picky and funny I am about this kind of stuff. If they ever don't want it, they know where to send it!!
