I am so lucky to get this little dog. We got him from my son who got him from my granddauther's friend who could not pay the deposit for him at the apartment where she and her father live. My son has three other dogs and he did not get along with the smallest of them. Therefore we got him Memorial Day weekend.
He is such a sweetheart. He does not know what to do to please us. I already love him dearly.
I know he is part chihuahua but now idea what else. Not that it makes any difference. He found his forever home.
His name is Tucker and he is going to see the vet next wek.

Thanks for all your help,

I would say there's a bit of Pekingese in that adorable little pooch :))

Maybe Pomeranian. There are DNA kits where you can take a swab --- I think in their mouth --- send it off & they tell you the breeds your dog is made of. They cost about $45. But really --- who cares --- you love him & that's what counts. The only reason for finding out for sure would be to know what he may be genetically inclined or predisposed to health wise or otherwise. Might come in handy in a health wise situation one day if the vet is trying to figure out what may be wrong with him.

Since I have a Japanese Chin, I am going to guess it could have some Chin in it. Here's my Ella. The tail, shape of the ears and the feathering behind the legs all look Chin to me. Also the pattern of the hair growth on the chest. But after looking at the hair growth on the longcoated Chihuahuas, I see much of the same on them, so maybe that is all from the Chihuahua side. He sure is cute whatever he is and I'm so glad he found a good home.Thumb of 2011-07-04/stilldew/d24a75

He looks a lot like my Chico, who is a long haired Chihuahua. He is very lovable and doesn't have a bad bone (nasty) in his body. The only problem we have is that he barks alot at strangers, birds, dogs, etc. Get the picture? We just him to death. He is a great companion to Shanghai, who is a peke.

I guess he would not consider himself lucky, since he's just been 'fixed'.
We did it last Friday, since I wanted to have a couple of days off to watch him. It turns out it was a good idea, since he did not take it very well. He was in a lot of pain and I had to give him his pain pills all the way till Sunday. Even today, when he moves funny, he will yelp. I think the stitches are sometimes bothering him. He is getting better and I hope soon, he will be 100%.
He got so spoiled (I hid his pain pills in morsels of NY steak, that I saved for this purpose) that no he does not eat his dog food and most of his treats.
My poor Bobbie Lou, the cat, is not terrified of the evil cone anymore. You should have seen her the first time she saw Tucker after he came from the vet. She is a big cat, almost 15lbs, but as any cats when they are frighten, she doulbled in size. I am so sorry that I did not have the camera handy. lol

Ella, Chico and Shanghai are beautiful. Tucker looks a lot like Chico.

Hope Tucker is feeling better. Doesn't sound like he's spoiled at all. Rolling my eyes. Sure hope you can convince him to eat dog food again once you run out of steak. He's a lucky fellow.

I hope he gets the message that he needs to eat his dog food, though first I need to make my husband not feed him .
He looks at you with those sad eyes and he makes you give in. Sentimental blackmail. :O)

Carol, you could be right. No idea. We love him no matter what he is. :O)
He is back to normal and he still wants our food. I keep telling my husband and my GD not to feed him people's food and I find myself doing it too. We call him Tucker the beggar dog.

What did dogs eat before the early 1930s when commercial dog food became a more or less common commodity? They ate the same thing the family did. Usually at the same time if they were the little house dog. My dogs have commercial food out all the time but they also get rather frequent people food treats. When we only had a couple smaller dogs and I had more energy for cooking more, our dogs ate just what we did.

I hide medicines in pieces of weiners, cream cheese, or ground meat. Works great for the dogs who are all gulpers. The cat on the other hand - - - .

Just dropped in on this form and rodica and saw that darling picture of your pup. She sure looks like my Molly-Bea. Molly is part pom. and part terrier. We got her at the pound years ago and she is so very special to us. She is white with a couple tan spots and a long bushy tail.Thumb of 2012-02-08/Samigal/d1a6b4
This picture was taken a few years ago.

You can get a Doggie DNA kit but I have no idea as to price. If you NEED to know that would be the way to go....So cute but I love them all....

Doggy DNA kits are about $60-$75, but I don't know how accurate they are. We had a houndy-looking dog who weighed over 100lbs. His analysis came back Whippet x Border Collie x Lab. I would have guessed Beagle x St Bernard!

I know he is a long hair Chihuahua but I was wondering if he has some pomeranian in him.
Not that it matters. We love him whatever he is. lolThumb of 2012-06-20/rodicap/b7e908
