I think the only two types are long haired or short haired and she's obviousely short haired and there are pocket Chi's but they are extremly unhealthy and are not show worthy so im assuming Roxy is not that either. Just taking a guess

Roxy Mae is definetely not pocket Chi! She is a healthy 6 pounds. And yes, she is a shorthair. I prefer them. She is a deerhead. She still has the rounded off forehead, but her snout is a little longer. Her eyes are full, but do not "poke" out of her head and her ears are beginning to stand. When not alert, they sort of poke out to the side or lie down, but when alert, they stand tall and proud. Her walk is just beautiful. She sort of just floats quickly across the ground beneath her.

You are correct Invisible, a 'deer head' shape does not follow the breed standard.

why don't 'deer head' shapes go with the standard? I mean does it mean there is someting wrong with the dogs? Like health issues or somthing?

I think it sounds great, you sound very responsible. What breed is roxy mae?
I just want to say something, Showpug mentioned that a dog should be bred if they are a good representation of their breed, I think cross breds are fine also, we had a bully/boxer and we crossed her with a good looking mixed male, beautiful pups and they all found good homes, some people prefer mixes remeber because they are cheaper and have traits that you can't get in pure bred dogs,

for example... labradoodles, the first ones were bred as service dogs that didnt irritate peopels allergies.

there is my two cents

Is it crossing to breed two mixes? I mean, if the mother's a bulldog/boxer and the father's a whatever, that's at least 4 breeds. Not that I don't like mutts; my last two dogs have been mutts and perfect in every way. Just questioning the effectiveness of breeding two different mixes if you're trying for a standard of physical beauty. For temperment, now, that makes sense.

It doesn't make ANY sense to breed mixed breeds or purebreds that don't exemplify the standard of the breed or meet genetic health and other tests. There are plenty of mixed breeds already stacked up in shelters who are being killed for a lack of a family to love and care for them. It's deplorable to purposely breed mixed breed dogs.
