Guess her breed!

February 6th, 2007, 11:07 AM
I really want to know her breed. I've done lots of research on this since we got her when I was in grade 6 and I'm now in Grade 9. I know for sure her Dad was a Chihauhau because my Uncle told me it was his dog's daughter... Long story. Unfortunately, I have no idea what the mother's lineage is. The people moved shortly after the puppies were grown and my Uncle never got the chance to ask.

So, any educated guesses?

Oh yeah! Here are the pictures:

(more coming... Heh, have to organize. -.-'')

looks like a yorkie to me

I agree. But she has the temperment of a Chihauhau. She thinks she's bigger than everyone. -.-''. Heh. Oh well. I just want to make sure that I'm close or right?

Having found a dog and then saying it is you uncles dog that sires it is a bit weird

but anyways it seems you have a powder puff chinese crested the long legs and unshaven face that I have seen in some makes me believe she is

there are 3 varieties powderpuff which has a full coat like what yours looks like , Hairy Hairless which has hairy head,tail and feet and sparsely coated here and there and then the hairless which normally has hair on head an tail only

This is my dog Winnie's Mom she is a powderpuff but face and ears have been shaved which is typical with grooming them

Winnies dad is a hairless he has no body of leg hair

Winnies baby picture but groomed with shaved ears, face and body

Here are more examples of powderpuff cresteds

If her face was cleaned up she would look much like Pixie wearing the coat in the picture in this link

I hope no puppies result, as this is a breed that can produce very severely defective puppies , some born with no ear canals, blind, severe deformities of bottom jaw, which could be so bad the dog cannot eat without reconstructive surgery, legge perthe disease of the hips( the ball of the hip will literally rot away) a $6000 to $8000 surgery to provide pain releif and give the dog chance to walk and the problems go on and on they have severe very expensive or life threatening deformaties or diseases, so knowing pedigree and having genetic tests is a must before any breeding these dogs because of the severity of the defects

Nothing better than showing what breeding boo boos can result in he is blind skin is horrid, teeth and jaw is a mess
another with a jaw deformity

Because you have no background pedigree info on her and no genetic testing there is no guarantee she will not produce pups like these, and yes some of her pups can have no hair
