Look, I love all dogs. But, enough already with this fake-breed-creation when you’re really just mixing two dogs together. Not everything has to be mixed with a chihuahua, and their personality and size just doesn’t call for it. And, there are plenty of mixed breeds in shelters that don’t cost thousands of dollars.

Also, chihuahuas are second only to pitbulls as far as being the most euthanized dog in shelters.

Huskies are high-energy and can be too much for the small and fragile Chihuahua.

Bullmastiff

Again, the size disparity can lead to practical and health problems.

The robust nature of the Bullmastiff can be overwhelming for a Chihuahua, potentially leading to accidental injuries.

Malamute

Similar to Huskies, Malamutes are large and energetic, which might be a risky mix with a tiny Chihuahua.

Rottweiler

Their powerful build and strong personality might not complement the small size and sometimes nervy temperament of the Chihuahua.

Greyhound

Although gentle, their size and fast speeds are not a good match for the small, fragile Chihuahua.

Dalmatian

Dalmatians are very active and need a lot of exercises, which could be too much for a Chihuahua mix.

Their large size and herding background make them unsuitable partners for breeding with a Chihuahua.

Known for their guard instincts and strong build, mixing with a small Chihuahua could pose health risks.
