All puppies are purebred and come with a one year limited guarantee against genetic defects. The guarantee applies to the original owner only and is Not transferable.

Our puppies begin at $800 to $1,500. Prices depend on parents, size (we can make no guarantee but give you birth weight and size of both parents) and quality of the individual puppy. Mostly pet with some show potential which may not be reached until they are about six months old. Of course, the tiny ones are more expensive due to the nature of care required from birth until they are fully capable to go to their new home. We spend a lot of quality time with each of our puppies to insure they are healthy and well established before leaving.

One of the most interesting aspects of these phenomenal little dogs is the many transformations of their coloring and coat as they mature into adulthood.
A long coat Chihuahua takes on several changes in the early developmental stages. When the puppy coat is shed and the adult coat comes in, this is usually when the color may change (sometimes drastically) -depending on the puppy.
Occasionally they can take "up to" two years to completely achieve their full adult coat. My advice is to take lots of pictures because the changes are absolutely amazing to look back and compare later in life.
...A Word on Training...
As with any pet, "proper" training, training, and more training is so vital early on. In doing so, NEVER hit or strike these "wee" little ones. It is equally as important to teach children "responsible" pet care and "appropriate" small pet play.
* * * * Did You Know... That 80% or more Chihuahuas have what's called a "Molera" (sometimes referred to as a "fontanel") which is similar to a baby's soft spot on the head. As the puppy grows, occasionally the "Molera" will close. However this is not always the case, which is another reason children and adults need to be cautious not to hit or drop the puppy. Precaution should also be exercised when bigger puppies/dogs interact as even innocent play can lead to a powerful (or fatal) blow.
* * * * Did You Know... Small dogs who live close to the floor (as the Chihuahuas do) are more susceptible to eye injury. Therefore, it is advisable to watch out for sharp objects, toys, or the cat's claws, rose bushes or anything with thorns - to help prevent an accident from occurring both indoors and out.
* * * * Did You Know... Toy breeds can develop Hypoglycemia or (low blood sugar) even when they are healthy. This common ailment is treatable however, when recognized early. Ask your breeder or small animal vet for more information on this subject if you are not familiar with it.
* * * * Did You Know... Keeping a tube of "Nutri-Cal", "Super-Cal", or "Puppy-Cal" handy if your dog is prone to this condition can be a life saver. Most puppies, if afflicted, will have outgrown this condition prior to leaving the breeder but others can have it for life.
* * * * Did You Know... Hypoglycemia Symptoms include (but not limited to) lethargic behavior, loss of appetite, glassy eyes, wobbly or staggered gait, and possible seizures or even death if they do not receive immediate treatment. Your vet can take a simple blood test to confirm this condition.
