The JackChi is a cross between the Jack Russell and the Chihuahua. A dog full of affection and fun, this Mixed breed dog has won the hearts of dog lovers the world over.

These intelligent dogs are also known for their loyalty, energy and spirited nature. Contrary to common belief, JackChis are also loving and happy dogs. However, his doesn’t mean that they cannot be stubborn and a little wary of strangers.

The JackChi is a short-haired dog, so they have minimal grooming demands. However, they are fond of digging in the dirt and therefore, regular bathing may be necessary.

The Chihuahua and the Jack Russell are both generally healthy dogs and hence, they should pass their healthy genes on to their offspring. A healthy JackChi can live up to 14 years.

2. Shi-Chi (Chihuahua Shih Tzu Mix)

Also affectionately known as the Chi-Tzu or Chi-Shi, the Shi-Chi is a cross between the Shih Tzu and the Chihuahua.

The Shi-Chi has grown in popularity in recent years, mainly because of the attractive combination of the Chihuahua and Shih Tzu’s spirited personalities.

Although it is a crossbred, the Shi-Chi is officially recognized by up to five different breed registries, including the Designer Breed Registry and the American Canine Hybrid Club.

The Shih Tzu’s old name loosely translates to ‘lion dog’. These canines were originally used to guard monasteries and palaces in Asia. Therefore, the Si-Chi has the potential to be a great watchdog.

They have a big personality and enjoy being close to their loved ones. They are sweet-tempered dogs who get along well with kids and strangers.

Your Shi-Chi will weigh anywhere between 5 and 12 pounds based on the size of his Chihuahua parent (teacup or toy).

These dogs have an average lifespan of around 12 to 15 years.

3. Chorkie (Yorkie Chihuahua Mix)

The Chorkie is the name of the cross between the Chihuahua and the Yorkshire Terrier. This sweet little dog is perhaps the most popular Chihuahua Mix out there.

The good news is that this crossbreed inherits the best traits from both parent breeds. Although both parent breeds are known to be quite vocal and aggressive, this crossbreed is known to be friendly.

In fact, most owners and breeders report that their Chorkies are just as pleasant as any other canine in the world with few of the typical Chihuahua traits that many people don’t like.

Both the Poodle and the Chihuahua are active, loyal, loving and affectionate dogs, so you can expect your Chi-Poo to inherit the same traits.

Both parents can be aggressive or reserved around strangers, making proper training and socialization extremely important.

A Chipoo will vary in size from around 5 to 20 pounds based on the size, height and weight of the Poodle parent.

A post shared by Churro The Chawming Chiweenie (@churro_the_chiweenie) on

Due to the fact that the Chiweenie is a mixed breed, it can be difficult to predict exactly how your puppy will look like once fully matured. In most cases, they have a large head, large ears and a long body.

A Chiweenie is commonly short-haired and comes in a range of colors, including black, brown and/or tan.

Like the JackChi, the Dachshund X Chihuahua is known for his tendency to dig. If you are considering adding a Chiweenie to your family, make sure you have a secure and well fenced-in yard for your dog to play and run around.

These dogs also enjoy doggie games such as chase and fetch.

7. Chug/Pughuahua (Chihuahua Pug Mix)

Also known as the Pughuahua, the Chug is a cute and sassy mix between the Chihuahua and the Pug.

This cross is funny, but in a sweet or pleasant manner.

Both parent breeds will pass the best traits on to the Chug, making it a great pet for anyone who doesn’t have children or other pets at home. This is because chugs are extremely territorial and aggressive towards larger dogs.

However, some of these dogs may still get along with kids and other pets, especially if they have been introduced to each other from a young age.

The Chug can also be a great companion, and perhaps better suited to homes with older children.

8. Chizer (Miniature Schnauzer Chihuahua Mix)

Also known as the Chizer, the Chihuahua X Miniature Schnauzer is one of the cutest Chihuahua mixes around. However, these dogs can also be very varied; some will take after the Chihuahua parent while others will get most of their traits from the Schnauzer parent.

Unfortunately, most Chizer dogs are very jumpy and do not get along well with young children.

They are either short or long-coated dogs. Their tail is normally docked. Moreover, these dogs are stronger than they look.

The Chizer can reach up to 14 inches tall and weigh around 2 to 15 pounds.

9. Pomchi/Chimeranian (Pomeranian Chihuahua Mix)

Also referred to as a Chimeranian, the Pomchi will always be a toy-sized dog, since both the Pomeranian and the Chihuahua are toy dog breeds.

Depending on the parent breeds your Pomchi takes after most, you might end up with one that looks like a Chihuahua or one that resembles a Pomeranian. However, you might also end up with a pup that is a nice combination of both. Unfortunately, you won’t know until you get your dog.

When it comes to temperament, the Pomchi can be a very sweet and playful dog. They can also be quite active with plenty of energy.

Therefore, proper training and exercise will be vital. While it is not easy to predict the temperament of a mixed breed dog like the Pomeranian X Chihuahua, you can transform his behavior and train your pup with some suitable obedience techniques and a consistent approach of teaching him to learn and obey.

PomChi dogs usually weigh around 5 to 12 pounds and have an average lifespan of approximately 12 to 18 years.

24. Bolo Chi (Bolognese Chihuahua Mix)

The Bolo-Chi is an offspring of the well-liked Chihuahua and the not-so-well-known Bolognese. The main issue you can expect is where to find this breed, as there aren’t many breeders that produce this mix in the United States.

Both parents are considered to belong in the Toy breed category and were developed for companionship, so the Bolo Chi can be a good choice for anyone living in an apartment or a small house.

The Bolognese side gets along well with strangers, but the Chihuahua is somewhat wary of strangers. Therefore, the friendliness of your Bolo-Chi puppy could go either way.

However, these hybrid dogs are very loyal and affectionate. They are also hypoallergenic dogs, so they would be suitable for people with allergies.

25. Chi Apso (Lhasa Apso Chihuahua Mix)

The Chi Apso is an interesting cross between a Chihuahua and a Lhasa Apso dog. These sweet-tempered dogs make excellent companions for virtually every dog lover.

The Lhasa Apso breed was originally used as watchdogs by Buddhist monasteries in Tibet. These canines were bred for this purpose due to their loud bark and their small, compact size.

The Chi Apso may not be as small as the Chihuahua, but they still weigh just 10 to 20 pounds. They have a long, double coat that needs to be brushed weekly to prevent matting.

26. Bullhuahua (English Bulldog Chihuahua Mix)

While not particularly rare, the English Bulldog Chihuahua Mix is not as popular as the JackChi or the Chorkie.

These canines are small to medium in size. They weigh around 20 to 30 pounds and stand between 9 and 12 inches tall.

The Bullhuahua dogs are more difficult to train than many other dogs. This is because both parent breeds are quite strong-willed.

Once properly trained, Bullhuahuas make great family dogs, especially if you have children.

They are moderate shedding dogs, so you need to invest in a quality vacuum to prevent loose hair spreading around your house.

A Bullhuahua dog can live up to around 14 years.

31. ChiPit (Pitbull Chihuahua Mix)

More commonly known as the ChiPit, the Chihuahua Pitbull Mix is definitely not the best choice for everyone.

If you want to get a better understanding of what you can expect from this crossbreed, it’s important to learn more about the Chihuahua and the American Pitbull Terrier and know that this mix could by anything in between the two.

Both parent breeds have very strong personalities, making them hard to train. Some people think that Pitbulls are aggressive and dangerous dogs, but that is only true for breeders who produce and raise their puppies improperly.

The ChiPit can be a great mix to own if you have the time to train your puppy how to behave, and raise him properly.

The ChiPit has an average height of around 12 to 18 inches and weighs anywhere between 15 and 30 pounds.

Buying a Chihuahua Mix

No matter what type of Chihuahua Mix you’re considering, you should always purchase your puppy from a reputable breeder.

As mixed breeds, there are a lot of unethical breeders and puppy mills out to take advantage of the popularity of the Chihuahua mixed breeds, so you need to be cautious.

There are a number of ways you can differentiate between good and bad breeders.

One of the best ways is to meet the breeders and their parent dogs. A breeder that allows you to meet the parent dogs and the litter is a good sign.

Once you meet the breeder, be sure to ask a lot of questions about the puppies, how they are raising their pups and what training or socialization the puppies have had.

They can do well in different homes, since they are very adaptable. Some may not be the easiest dogs to train, but most of these Chihuahua mixed breeds are worth the hassle.
