Chihuahuas and Small Dog Breeds
Being a miniature breed themselves, Chihuahuas generally don’t face many problems mingling with other toy breeds. In this section, we will analyze how well they bond with some of the small dogs.
Chihuahua vs. Chihuahua
We will start with one of the most straightforward partners. The new Chihuahua has no issues befriending dogs of their breed. Two chihuahuas get along well in no time, and there is a sense of familial bond or treatment associated with a family member on display.
As a dog owner, you are in for a fun show leaving your Chihuahua with another Chihuahua alone in a room. You will probably see each of them jumping in excitement, inviting the other dog to play; it will be a jolly ride and a fantastic sight. In short, they end up being best friends and keep each other company at all times.
Chihuahua vs. Pitbull
Unlike the previous combo, these two dog breeds are not suited for each other. The Pitbull’s muscular physique and serious demeanor can intimidate the tinier Chihuahua. They will snap, and due to the apparent difference in physical strength, this situation could lead to Chihuahuas ending up getting injured.
The bottom line is, do not bring a Pitbull home if you already own a Chi.
Chihuahua vs. Yorkie
The similarity in physical traits makes these two breeds a viable option for companionship. Both of them can share a loving and fun relation with some minor training activities.
Adult supervision is advisable in the initial introductory stage. But in a couple of weeks, they should be good at sharing a common space at home or a dog park.
Chihuahua vs. Shih Tzu
Chis and their high-pitched voice can be annoying to the Shih Tzu. These breeds are not generally the best of friends. We recommend you think twice before bringing them under the same roof.
We have witnessed rare cases of an amicable bond formation between them at our dog training center. Human supervision is crucial to prevent unwanted duels and injuries.
Chihuahua vs. Pomeranian
The average Chi and Pomeranian have a natural sense of attitude and pride associated with them. When these two breeds are brought together, a clash of personalities is likely to occur.
Without human supervision or left unleashed, the air seems to get tense, and things end in confrontation rather than bonding.
Chihuahua vs. French Bulldog
Their inclination towards playing games and energetic nature helps them be decent playmates. This combination is worth trying, provided you have the time and interest to engage the dogs in regular gaming sessions at home or outside.
So far, we have seen the Chihuahua’s chemistry with similar-sized pooches. What if the other dog is a large-sized breed? Let’s check that out in the upcoming section.
