If you are having difficulties with any aspect of this board, POSTING PICTURES, using any features, ask your questions here and I will "try" to answer them (I'm new at this too!) ... and if I can't maybe somebody else will know the answer! That's why it's a Discussion Board ... No ONE person can know everything -- oh some come close, but ... ;) NOTE: If you are a member but for some reason are unable to access the board to post a question, please e-mail me at loveschihuahuas@cox.net and I'll see if I can help (but first, make sure your browser accepts cookies and reboot, as that happened to me and this fixed it!)

No New Posts Responsible Breeding: What Does It Mean?

What does it mean to be a responsible breeder? How is being a responsible merle Chihuahua breeder different than being a responsible breeder of Chihuahuas in general? How can we do the most to be sure that these precious little dogs we know and love are not only beautiful but healthy and happy too?

Instead of a buy/sell forum I have created this place for breeders to place links to their websites or other contact information only (NO PUPPIES FOR SALE PLEASE) so that those interested in a new best friend can find someone to contact about that here. There will be no selling or buying on the forum and all transactions will remain private between the parties. PLEASE NOTE: This is a public board and anyone with an e-mail address can join. PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH whether buying or selling as the Administrator of this board cannot take any responsibility for the relationships between buyer/seller.

No New Posts THE NEW & IMPROVED MERLE CHIHUAHUA DISCUSSION & BREEDERS BOARD

This is just to let you guys know that in light of the CCA's decision recognizing the merles (GO MERLE) there will be some changes to the board. I will be archiving the pro/con debate - you can still read it but it won't be active- and rearranging boards, etc. so we can get on with the fun of learning and sharing all we can about living with these beautiful Chihuahuas -- and all Chihuahuas in general! FEEL FREE TO MAKE SUGGESTIONS ... IT'S YOUR BOARD TOO! Watch for the debut of the New Board after the Memorial Day Weekend!!

No New Posts Choose a Merle Registration Coding System: Cast Your Vote!

Let's choose a universal coding system for registering merles! Tell at a glance from the registered name of a Chihuahua if it is a known merle or a merle bred Chi and thus avoid any chance of breeding merle to merle unknowingly!
