I never thought I would be a Chihuahua 'person'...But we got one as a rescue, and we fell in love with her.  We decided to breed her, but when we took her to the male, she said no...She said it in a way that almost left him blind.  I wanted so badly to raise a Chihuahua from a puppy, and this little guy was a 7 week old pup from Gracie's supposed mate.  He was so tiny that I couldn't leave without him - he and Cee Lo are our only 'non-rescues'.

He is 1 1/2 years old, and weighs less than 3 lbs.  He is the most loving little dog you will ever encounter, and he dearly loves his Gracie.  They are inseperable, and I truly believe they would die of a broken heart if anything ever happened to the other one.  Diesel has so much attitude for such a tiny dog!  We fostered a Great Pyrenees for a few months, and no fear Diesel tried to snap his nose off the whole time we had him.  All 3 lbs of him took on a 95 lb dog every chance he got.

Now, his target is Cee Lo, our 3 month old white lab pup.  Diesel really can't get his mouth around any part of the pup, so basically it is just comical.  But, if you want a tiny dog who really thinks he's a bear, I would highly suggest a Chihuahua.  They are very loyal and protective, very much lap dogs, and highly intelligent and easy to train.
