All puppies are purebred and come with a one-year limited guarantee against genetic defects. The guarantee applies to the original owner only and is Not transferable. Defect guarantee must be based on the decision of two qualified licensed veterinarian’s determination that such defect(s) are genetic in nature and would:
(a) significantly and substantially diminish the quality of life and,
(b) require surgery for corrective repair in order to sustain life and,
(c) be terminal in nature.
Purchaser is responsible for determining the necessity of veterinary care and agrees to provide original veterinary diagnostic records from both determining veterinarians, proof of any medical treatment performed on the puppy, along with the treating veterinarian’s name, address, and phone number. Records are also to be provided prior to any decision for credit to the seller within 30 days of the determination, should any claim arise during the guaranteed one-year time period. If any defects should be found, the purchaser may return the puppy for a credit towards the purchase of another puppy within the first year. This guarantee does not cover "size," “reverse sneezing,” or “allergies.”
All claims are subject to independent medical and legal review.
There is a 14-day health guarantee for illnesses such as Canine Distemper, Parvo A type 1 & 2, and Para-influenza.
We do “Guarantee" our puppies to be free from Infectious Canine Diseases at the time of sale.
At the purchaser’s expense, Puppy's vet approved health certificate when flying, and the airline approved crate suitable in size. All puppies must be examined by your local licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of acceptance from a breeder, or the guarantee is void.
Our puppies may begin at $1,850 and can range up to $3,750 with occasional variances. Prices depend on parents, size (we can make no guarantee but give you birth weight and size of both parents), sex, and quality of the individual puppy. Mostly we raise pet quality with some show potential which may not be reached until they are at least six months old. Of course, the tiny ones are more expensive due to the nature of care required from birth until they are fully capable of going to their new home. We spend a lot of quality time with each of our puppies to insure they are healthy and well established before leaving and most are about 95% housebroken to piddle pads by the time they go home.

The breeder reserves the right to refuse any sale she/he feels would not be in the best interest of the puppy.

One of the most interesting aspects of these phenomenal little dogs is the many transformations of their coloring and coat as they mature into adulthood.
A long coat Chihuahua takes on several changes in the early developmental stages. When the puppy coat is shed, and the adult coat comes in, this is usually when color changes become more obvious (sometimes drastically) -depending on the puppy.
Most often, it only takes a few short months to transition from puppy coat to adult, beginning from about three-four months up to six-nine months. Occasionally, they can take "up to" three years to completely achieve their full adult coat. My advice is to take lots of pictures throughout these life stages because the changes are absolutely amazing when you look back and compare them later in life.
As with any pet, "proper" training, training, and more training are so vital early on. In doing so, NEVER hit or strike these "wee" little ones. It is equally as important to teach children "responsible" pet care and "appropriate" small pet play.
* * * * Did You Know... That 80% or more Chihuahuas have what's called a "Molera" (sometimes referred to as a "fontanel"), which is similar to a baby's soft spot on the head. As the puppy grows, the "Molera" will often close. However, this is not always the case, which is another reason children and adults need to be cautious not to hit or drop the puppy. Precaution should also be exercised when bigger puppies/dogs interact, as even innocent play can lead to a powerful (or fatal) blow.
* * * * Did You Know... Small dogs who live close to the floor (as the Chihuahuas do) are more susceptible to an eye injury. Therefore, it is advisable to watch out for sharp objects, toys, the cat's claws, rose bushes, or anything with thorns - to help prevent an accident from occurring both indoors and out.
* * * * Did You Know... Toy breeds can develop Hypoglycemia or (low blood sugar) even when they are otherwise healthy. Hypoglycemia Symptoms include (but are not limited to) lethargic behavior, loss of appetite, glassy eyes, wobbly or staggering gait, and possible seizures or even death if they do not receive immediate treatment. Your vet can take a simple blood test to confirm this condition. These are just a few of the signs... having some Honey, Karo syrup, Sugar Water, or canned dog food available may help but be certain your puppy is still responsive enough to swallow properly.
Hypoglycemia, although not uncommon, is treatable if recognized early. Do your research ahead of time! Ask your breeder or small animal vet for more information on this subject if you are not familiar with it. Also, as with any newly acquired fur baby, it is not recommended to expose your puppy to public environments, multiple family members, or other people early on to avoid unnecessary exposures to unknown germs.
* * * * Did You Know... Keeping a tube of "Nutri-Cal," "Super-Cal," or "Puppy-Cal" handy if your dog is prone to the above condition can be a lifesaver as well. Most puppies, if afflicted, will have outgrown this condition prior to leaving the breeder, but some can have it for life. Like people, there are days when the appetite is not the best. This can also be helpful for those days "a meal" may be missed. But if it continues, by all means, see your veterinarian.
* * * * Did You Know...Sometimes the best way to "Puppy Proof" your home is to get down on the floor at their level and look around! No Kidding, they can find things you never knew were on the floors no matter how many times you've cleaned. Also, watch out for those poisonous plants, room deodorizers, carpet cleaners, extension cords, kids' toys, pest sprays or traps, fresh paint, chemicals, and other pets, just to name a few possible dangers with your new arrival.
* * * * Did You Know...How to successfully introduce your puppy to their new home if you have other pets? It is always best to introduce them on neutral territory, which can be done in several different ways. But the best way to do it is outside if the weather permits. It can be on a porch, outside in your yard, in your apartment hallway, or even at neighbors. And it won't take a long introduction to make things much easier once inside your home. Be certain always to use CLOSE supervision!
* * * * Did You Know...It is never advised to give your new puppy the run of the house from day one, as it can be too overwhelming. They also need to earn freedom little at a time, and then it should only be with constant supervision in the beginning. Keep in mind; that these little dogs usually prefer having their own quiet, safe place in the home, a place to rest and out of the traffic area so they can feel safe and secure by being out of harm's way in their new environment.
