Due to their small size Chihuahuas must replenish their energy more frequently than all larger puppies. The only way to do this is by supplying plenty of nourishment in the form of extra food and water. You must remember that puppies only eat very small amounts of food at a time but they use large amounts of energy. When you get your puppy home you don't want to switch its food right away, If you are going to make a change, do it gradually by slowly adding more of the new food to the old food each day until they are totally switched over to the new food.

Here are more about these basic supplies below 


The most important thing I feel is to have a baby puppy playpen or play yard type area pen. A small to meduim size enclosed fence area like a X-Pen which comes with 8 panels to keep your puppy confined in whenever you are not playing with them. This must be a area with enough room for their bed at one end and easy access to food and water on the side and a place for a potty pad or news paper at the other end, This is where they can rest, eat in peace and potty when needed. This area should be no larger than 6 ft x 6 ft if at all possible you can use a 3 ft x 3 ft baby playpen or a puppy x-pen or you can use a baby gate across a door area, like a bathroom or small bedroom? Yes some people use their bathroom and use a childs gate across the door area so you can leave the door open to hear your puppy if it needs you or it crys. 

Never give your Chihuahua puppy the run of the whole house until they are at least 6 months old or older. With such a large space to run around in, it is easy for them to tire and lose track of where their food is and most important their potty pads or potty place! And if their not getting food on time, that could result in a hypoglycemia attack or even death for your puppy if they cant find their food and water Please This Is No Joke!! For the first few weeks do not let your baby Chi out to play for longer than a one hour period at a time, Just play with them for a short time like 15 mins, then give them a small dose of the Nutri-Cal or 1/4 spoonful Karo Syrup and then place them back in their play area so they can potty, eat drink and rest for a while. Remember that they are very small babies and tire easily. Please be careful not to over-tire your puppy especially in the first few weeks. A puppy will play until it drops. It may play so much that it is too tired to even eat or drink water. It is up to you as the owner to be responsible and see that your Chihuahua puppy gets enough rest. Most very small puppies need as much as 20 out of 24 hours rest. Be especially aware of the amount of time children play with the puppy, you don't want your puppy getting really sick. These are just like human babies and must be treated as such, and I think of the tiny teacup size puppy just like a premie human baby that really needs extra care! 

 IMPORTANT > STRESS: in Chihuahuas 

Puppies can become stressed easily and this is the main cause of illness and even death to newly acquired puppies!!! Taking your puppy to your home from the breeder, holding him/her too much, having to deal with other pets in the home, not eating right or playing too much in a big open area are some of reasons your puppy will become stressed and can get real sick. Your puppy should be in a warm dry area to sleep, Crates, Playpens, and ex-pens are great for keeping your new puppy in, it provides a safe place for your puppy and will help limit the stress he or she may feel. It can also help with potty training, and give them a sense of security as their safe place. Provide a comfy bed in the area as puppies do sleep a lot. They will need food and water available at all times (this will also help with hypoglycemia) Avoid handling your puppy too much, this can add stress and and overtire. A tired puppy will not eat, he will only want to sleep and missing a meal can be life threatening to your new chihuahua puppy. As the puppy grows older and stronger he/she will be able to play for longer periods of time. its also important that puppies are not left alone for many hours each day, this too can cause over stress and could cause your puppy to refuse to eat and drink.

 We want everyone to know that we do reserve the right to refuse to adopt out any of our puppies if we feel that the puppy may not receive the right home and all that it needs. Like the lack of personal quality time between the owner and puppy, all puppies need dry food, and can use some can food, and clean water daily and have continuous positive interactions with people at least every two to three hours every day, Having children below the age of 8 yrs, This can cause real problems, children can drop the puppy, sit on him, stepping on him, put him in the tolet and a whole allot more that could go wrong with your puppy and child, Plus the super tiny puppies which some of us call Micro Teacups, they are really extra small and these Tiny chihuahua puppies have Tiny Little Tummies - but a very fast metabolism! This basically means that their little bodies 'use up' their food very quickly. To help make sure that their blood sugar levels remain constant in spite of this, it's important to make sure that your puppy eats 'little and very often'. Any chihuahua puppy should be fed at least 4 times a day, for the first 6 months or just leave the dry food out all day for them. After that, 3 times a day should be okay until your puppy is mature (around 1 year of age), when you can go down to 2 feedings per day.  Little dogs like chihuahuas will always need to be fed at least twice daily when they are adults. Water and dry food should be freely available always, but make sure the water bowl is tip-proof and not big/deep enough for your puppy to fall into! Tiny puppies may try to climb into a bowl that seems too big, and it is perfectly possible for them to drown in this way.  It's also important to be prepared for hypoglycemia, just to be on the safe side.  Before you bring your puppy home, familiarize yourself with the symptoms of low blood sugar (can include weakness, confusion, low body temperature, poor co-ordination, drowsiness or even loss of consciousness), so that you know when to take action fast. Hypoglycemia can be a very serious condition, so have a tube of Nutra-Cal on hand before you bring your puppy home. Nutri Cal is a vitamin and calorie rich paste, which is used as a dietary supplement,  gives an extra 'boost' of energy. If your chihuahua is ever having problems with his/her blood sugar, a little of this paste could save his/her life. To learn more about hypoglycemia in puppies and other health issues please visit our Chihuahua information page.

  

 FEEDING TIPS AND PUPPY CARE

 

Water: Water is necessary for good health and should be available at all times. If your puppy is not drinking enough, add one part goat milk or puppy formula to two parts water. This will need to be changed every hour and may cause loose stools. If your puppy still does not drink enough, you may use a dropper.
 
 
Food: Knowing when, what and how much to feed is critical to your puppy?s success. If possible, a set schedule is very helpful, especially as you work on housetraining. Put the food down for approximately 15 minutes and then take it away. If you have to be gone over a meal time, put the next feeding out. Leave fresh water out at all times. Remember that every puppy is different. How much and how often he feeds will depend upon his size and metabolism. The following recommendations are just that--recommendations. It is your responsibility to monitor and adjust your puppy?s food intake.
 
6 - 12 weeks
You will most likely be taking your puppy home during this age span. We recommend feeding your puppy 4 times a day through this growth period. When you take him home, he may tend to skip a few meals because of the new environment, new schedule, new people, etc. A small puppy cannot afford to do this, as it may cause low blood sugar (see hypoglycemia). If he refuses to eat, try softening his food with warm water, or offer him canned puppy pedigree--lamb & rice. If necessary, experiment with several different foods (make sure it is a high quality puppy food) until you find one he will eat. A lamb and rice formula is easy on the stomach. If your puppy develops diarrhea as a result of stress brought on by all the changes in environment, food, and more, try cooking rice and adding some canned dog food to the rice. Make sure he doesn?t skip more than one meal per day the first several days.
 
3 - 6 Months
We recommend 3 daily feedings during this stage. unless its a Micro Teacup, Your puppy may start to show less interest in one of the meals. Don?t worry about a small skipped meal but watch his body condition. Dogs of the same breed and size may require different amounts of food to maintain the same body weight. Micro teacups need to have extra food because of their body is so small
 
6 - 12 Months
Somewhere in this time-span you should be able to reduce the feedings to just twice a day. Supplements are not necessary. If you are feeding a dry food, the only supplement he needs is water. Careful observation tells us when a puppy is healthy and growing well (but not getting fat). By this time you are the expert. You know his schedule, likes, dislikes, feeding times and amounts, and you know better than anyone else what is best for your puppy.
 
Picky Eaters:
The smaller size puppies can be picky eaters. We normally hold onto these little ones until they?re past this stage, but in case you end up with one, here are a few suggestions of things that may help whet their appetite. Offer Gerber baby meats such as veal, chicken, or turkey. Its easy to slip some onto the puppy?s tongue to get those saliva glands working. For a puppy who is not thriving properly because of lack of appetite, you should contact your veterinarian. Avoid giving your tiny young puppy people food as their system is not able to handle sugars, and starches, etc., except for meat such as chicken, turkey, or hamburger. But remember hypoglycemia can happen real easy mostly with a new baby, so you should keep nutra-Cal on hand or at least Karo Syrup or Pan Cake Syrup in the house and give your baby at least a 1/4 teaspoon at a time every ten minutes and if not better call your Vet!!
 
IMPORTANT!!
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar):
This is a central nervous system disorder caused by a low blood sugar. It occurs mainly in toy breeds between 6 and 12 weeks of age, but it can go all the way into adulthood and is often caused by allot of 'Stress, Exhaustion, Over-Activity, Etc. Hypoglycemia can occur without warning when a puppy is placed in its new home, or while being transported. It might even appear if a puppy misses a meal, or has an upset stomach, or chills. The first signs are those of listlessness and depression. They are followed by muscular weakness, tremors (especially in the face and legs), and later convulsions, coma and death. The entire sequence is not always seen. The dog may simply appear depressed, wobbly or jerky, or may be found in a coma. Prolonged or repeated Hypo' attacks may cause permanent damage to the brain. Treatment is directed at restoring blood levels of glucose and should begin immediately. If the puppy is awake, karo syrup, honey, or sugar in water may be given by mouth. Pedialyte may also be given. The puppy should begin to improve in minutes. If the puppy is unconscious he will have to be given a Dextrose solution (IV) intravenously. In this case, a veterinarian should be seen at once. Recurrent attacks may be prevented by feeding a high quality puppy food diet and adding to it sugar, syrup, or honey. At times it may be necessary to feed a prescription puppy food (such as AD) for a certain length of time. the most important thing is to not leave your puppy alone for more that a few hours at a time, without you checking on the puppy or having someone else check on the puppy and know how to give treatment and take the puppy to the vet if needed.
 
 

 Here is a good food recipe that I use for all my puppies and dogs that are finicky eaters

This is setup for a weeks worth of good food for 2 puppies, or 1 pup and one adult so change to fit how many pups or adults will be eating this for 5 to 7 days while keeping fresh in fridge.

 1-cup to 2-cups of cooked rice

1/2-cup of your puppies dry dog food mixed in 1-cup of hot water, then wait 30 mins. to expan to a mush

1/4 cup frozen veggies without corn NO Corn!,  YES To 'green beans,peas,carrots,

1- egg cooked scrambled, (But Not Really Needed but good protein)

1/2 cup of finely chopped up meat or 1 can of dog food, 'The meat or dog food can be chicken, turkey, or beef,  NO Pork! its not good for dogs.

  A cup of warm water, But you can use either, water, chicken broth, or beef broth

 Mix all above into a large bowl and place in the fridge with cover, this can last up to 5 days in fridge

I feed this rice mush above 2 times a day to puppies and only 1 time a day to my adult dogs, But this is besides their dry food and fresh water that's left out all day and night.  I DO HOPE YOUR PUPPY OR ADULT DOG ENJOYS THIS RECIPE !

"OTHER PUPPY TIPS"

Environment & the Den Instinct:
Your puppy must be kept warm and away from drafts but not overheated. A little known fact for new puppy owners is that most puppies like their pet carrier, especially when its padded with a soft blanket (like a den). It is their haven for relaxation and sleep. If you limit the daytime use to several hours, he will be ready for bed at night. By nature, he doesn?t like to soil his den. This can help teach him where and when its appropriate to go potty. A good pet carrier is well-ventilated and suited to the size of your puppy (he should have plenty of room to stand up, lie down, and turn around comfortably).
 
 
House training: House training your puppy isn?t hard, just be consistent. He is already partially paper-trained. At first, confine him to a small paper-covered area. Put his food and water on the paper and the pet carrier/bed in the corner. Gradually allow him in more areas of your house as he becomes consistent with going potty on the paper. Feel free to move the paper a little at a time if you want to change his potty location. For example, if you want him to start going potty outside, move the paper several inches a day toward the door and then eventually put it outside. Once he is used to going outside, timing is everything. He will probably need to ?go? after each of the following: waking up, eating, and playing. Remember, until your puppy is around 3 months old, he will have to relieve himself quite frequently (every couple hours). However, he is naturally less likely to do so in a confined area and may be able to ?hold it? until the next potty break. All tiny breed dogs especially Chihuahuas and Yorkies have very tiny bladders & need to go more frequently. If you work or are gone for many hours, litter box training or puppy pad training works best especially for really tiny dogs such as Chihuahuas, Maltese, and Yorkshire Terriers and tiny Poodles. A litter box is more natural for females and neutered males who don't lift their legs.You can put potty pads or newspaper in the box and it's easy to change. There is another method that helps with male dogs and that is the male dog diaper, its not really a diaper, but a cloth type belt that fits around its lower back side in front of its back legs and raps around his (stomach/male area) and it can be fastened by Velcro or pined on top of his back, some people even place a panty liner inside the diaper to give it more padding. He wears this in the house and its taken off every few hours to let him potty outside or on the potty pad. These diapers can be bought on Ebay for very reasonable prices. If you let you tiny dog roam free around the house until it is trained it will use your house as a whole bathroom.  It is a fact that any tiny breed dogs can be difficult to housebreak, so stay on top of it at all times. You must confine your dog to a crate or some other way when your not playing with it until it is either outdoor trained or littler box trained. Either way they can still have a few accidents here and there or if the weather is not to their liking, (Like raining) they will go in the house that is why it is best if you are having problems to train both methods. Some go indoors only in the winter or if it is raining. If you live in a very cold climate sometimes impossible for them to go outside so this is the best solution but you will still probably have occasional accidents. Be patient. That is what you deal with when you are raising any new puppy or have very tiny breeds of dogs. But you love them anyway.
 
Vaccinations:
We provide the first vaccination shot for all of our puppies. This shot needs to be repeated every three weeks until he is 16 weeks old. Avoid exposing him/her to other pets that may not be vaccinated (particularly at pet stores and Pet places ). Remember that your puppy is not fully immunized until he has had the fourth and final shot. He will then need a yearly booster shot.
 
 
 
SPECIAL NOTE TO YOUR VETS: This breed has been known to have major reactions to Lepto. If Lepto is needed in your area, give separately after 16 weeks of age. We also recommend giving the proper dose of Benadryl prior to all vaccines. We are only stressing this due to the health and welfare of our puppies and dogs. .... Note: "LEPTO IS NOT NEEDED IN THE GREAT NORTHWEST AREA!!
 
 

CHEWING: If a dog is chewing on a forbidden object correct him with a stern NO while he is chewing. Immediately give him an acceptable object to chew and praise him when he does so. Remember, puppies have to chew so make sure the dog knows which things are acceptable. Don't confuse him with many chew toys, stick with one or two and never use old shoes or socks unless it is okay for him to chew new ones. Chewing may be out of boredom or anxiety. Correct these problems and you end the behavior.

BARKING: Barking is a dog's way of communicating. If he is alone for long stretches he will bark because he is bored and miserable. Solution: spend more time with him, give him more exercise. If he is barking from separation anxiety, gradually teach him it's okay to be alone by leaving for short periods and praising him when he behaves. If he is barking because he wants out of a crate and you let him out while he is barking, you have rewarded and reinforced the behavior. Never let a barking dog out of a crate. Correct him with a stern QUIET and wait until he has been quiet for a few seconds before letting him out. A squirt gun or bottle can be used as a last resort on incorrigible barking dogs, but ignoring them until they finally shut up and then praising them and letting them out is the most effective solution. But people need to remember that a dog is not bred to stay in a crate all day or a playpen all day while your at work! Any person that works 5 to 10 hours a day, needs to get a doggie caregiver to come in each day for their dog so they don't become frustated and become sick or learn behavior problems, then their owners decide they have turned into a dog they just dont like so the re-home the dog. But it's not the dogs falt!! If its owners gave it hours of care that family and dog would still be together and happy.  

JUMPING: Trying to be quick enough to correct this problem is usually futile and frustrating. Simply teach the dog that the correct way to greet you is with a sit then with praise. If he/she is told to sit and responds, and isn't jumping he/she will learn this is the way, then you have found a good way to corect this problem.


A Secure Chihuahua 

One of a Chihuahuas most noticed traits is its determination to burrow under blankets, sheets, pillows, etc. & most anything soft so that it can get warm. This is quite normal and common. Many owners will also notice that their Chihuahua will also sleep snuggled up against them to help keep them warm on the coldest nights. It's actually a mutual benefit if you are the one who will let a little dog sleep at the base of your bed or snuggled against your legs.  Most tiny dogs are nervous by nature, Nervousness can make the small dog shiver or appear to shake, as if it is cold. However, the Chihuahua is a very small dog, making it even more nervous than most, plus, because of its small size, it does get cold much faster. It likes to stay under some soft cover. By providing it with either a warm bed with a blanket, a sleeping bag made of fleece is a wonderful choice & it can be on the couch or bed with you so he/she can feel the security of being by your side. 


 
Exercise:
Chihuahuas love to romp and play and get most of their exercise this way, but some may need to be walked on a regular basis. Some benefits of daily physical activity include building muscle mass, keeping their heart strong, and maintaining healthy joints and an appropriate weight. However, be sure to avoid extreme temperatures as hot or cold can be really bad on puppies. .
 
Grooming:
Bathe your puppy only when necessary and make sure he doesn?t get chilled. Several baths per month are sufficient. To avoid ear infections, keep all soap and water away from his ears. If necessary, wipe the ears with a warm cloth. Use a soft brush on his coat daily and keep his nails trimmed.
 
Soft Spot:
Most puppies, just like babies, have a soft spot on the top of their head. This is especially true of the teacups. It normally closes in the first year and a half, but until it closes, its extremely important to protect that spot from injury. To help prevent injury, keep your puppy from bumping his head and playing too rough. In addition, don?t allow anyone to touch the soft spot. The Chihuahua is the only breed that a soft spot can be normal.
 
Diarrhea:
Diarrhea has numerous causes and can be very serious especially in young puppies because it may cause dehydration. Some home remedies include feeding cooked rice with the puppy?s food mixed in, cottage cheese or chunks of regular cheese, and trying even a tiny amount of pepto,  you can also try soaking hard food instead of feeding canned food. If the diarrhea continues for 2 - 3 days, it may be necessary to have your puppy tested for coccidia or giardia. Your veterinarian may prescribe a treatment of albon or antibiotics for a week to solve the problem.
 
Again, see your licensed veterinarian for specific instructions!

Exposing you puppy to your other pets?
 
If you already have a dog(s) or cat(s) in your family, then you must introduce them to the new puppy slowly and always supervise them when they are together until they have excepted one another fully. Here again, there is no way of telling how long this will take, they may like each other right away or it may take time for them to get use to each other, they will work together at their own pace, Now you cant rush them to like each other its up to them to work things out, Please watch them when they are together and soon they will except each other as family members.

          Read About Dangers Outside !!                      
Like other small dogs, the Chihuahua faces a danger outdoors that does not threaten his canine cousins that weigh more than 15 pounds he is just the right size for a meal for a bird of prey or a coyote. Large hawks, eagles, and owls have been known to swoop down on pets and carry them away, and coyotes are becoming a more common danger in some city fringes and suburbs. Another danger is yard fencing for young Chihuahuas, Being so small Chihuahuas can walk right through many different types of  fencing, if you need to potty your puppy outside make sure you stand near by and watch him/her closely.

COLORS AND WEIGHT & SIZES
 ( Plus Chihuahua Puppy weight chart below)
 
We have several colors of puppies to choose from (in most every litter) we have Chocolates, Black n Tans, Creams, All White, Reds, Dark Browns with black masks, Fawns, True Blacks, Blues, that are light or dark, Lavenders, We should get around 20% to 30% of Blue colored babies when we breed to our new male, because he carries blue also. Most of our puppies come with different kinds of patterns of white markings along with their main color, like tips of toes or boots and diamonds on the chest and strips on faces as well, And most of our litters we have had both the short coat and the long coat as each three of our females bloodlines carry both coat genes so they can and do produce both coats.
 
Our puppies sizes run from 2-1/2 lbs to 6-1/2 lbs and so far our average size of puppies when full grown is 4-lbs to 5-lbs, But I do have to say we did have one puppy out of all our pups that grew larger, He grew to around 10lbs' But the home he went to was perfect for him,  it had small kids that loves to run and play with him daily and they cant be more happier!
 
Some people call the really tiny ones TINY TEACUP or Micro Teacup Chihuahuas And The Little Bit Larger Size called The TOY Chihuahua, But in all honesty All Chihuahua's are from the same "Toy Breed" YES... Our dogs do produce both the real tiny and mid size Chihuahuas, so when looking for a certain size of Chihuahua we feel its best to talk it over with the breeder to find out which size Chihuahua will really fit best into your family. that is really the key to your Chihuahua Happness! 
 
Even though it's the "Hollywood Fad" to carry around a super tiny Chihuahua like Paris Hilton, Most of those super tiny babies need constant care, extra food and water at least every two to three hours a day and need someone to help them up and down stairs and off couches and protect them from other larger animals and little kids from playing to ruff with them and causing them to break a leg or to even receive a head injury that they may not ever recover from. Those tiny babies need round the clock care!
 
And if you don't live in Hollywood and cant higher a nanny sitter for your Chihuahuas like Paris and Brittney does, then You really need to re-think if a super tiny baby is really the right size of Chihuahua for you! That's why I always try and suggest a Chi baby at least 4-lbs to 6-lbs when totally grown for people that work outside their home, or have smaller age kids, or their expecting children at some point or even if they live a fast pace life style. Chihuahuas are the longest living dogs and they can live up to 19 years old and some times even older and its important that if we want a Chi, we really need to think over all the different possibilities that will happen and can happen so these little fur babies will live a long and happy life together with you in your home. Now if you are at home daily and you have time to care for a tiny micro Teacup baby Chihuahua like caring for it every two to three hours thru' out the day, taking care of it with giving it can food and water and to take it to go to potty and they also need to be given extra meds so their sugar level wont drop till about 6 months old, Honestly its really like having a one or two year old for 15 or longer years!! If this is really what you want? then I will try and help you with finding the right little baby your really wanting and if I don't have one that small here at the time, I can try and refer you to someone that  might.
 
But for those super tiny Chihuahuas that do need the constant care all the time just as the micro size Chihuahua puppies mostly do, Honestly I have seen with my own eyes, because I own one myself.... 2-1/4 lbs These tiny chi's will need that same type of care for the remainer of their life and some of these super tiny babies can come with health problems and they seem not to live quite as long as the other chihuahuas do.
 
I myself feel it's much better to adopt a puppy with less known problems, Than to just buy a puppy for it's size, I try and suggest to people wanting a micro teacup is to adopt one that at least reaches 3-lbs to 4-lbs these tiny babies seem to do so much better in health and conformation and even with their intelegence. But this is really up to the person adopting, I will try my best to help everyone with the Chihuahua information they need.
 
 
~The Chihuahua Puppy Weight Chart~
 
What will your puppy weigh when it's an adult?
Checkout the chart below, Remember that this is not an exact tool below,
Your puppy can be smaller or a little larger as an adult than the chart says so, 
this isnt proven science for knowing for sure but it can help to know pretty
close to what your puppies weight will be when it reaches adulthood. take down 
 what your pups age is, and by it's weight now, then cross together and you will get the estimate.
