Chiweenie Puppies For Sale

A Chiweenie is a mixed dog breed that comes from a Dachshund and a Chihuahua. It also goes by several other names like Weeniehuahuas, Choxie, German hot dogs, and German Taco. Breeders of the Chiweenie puppies for sale say that the best dogs are produced when a purebred Dachshund is mixed with a purebred Chihuahua and apparently, they avoid subsequent breeding of two first-generation Chiweenies puppies or even a Chiweenie with one of the parent breeds.

Baby Chiweenie puppies for sale are social, friendly, energetic, and loving. These traits make them friendly and fun lap dogs. Due to their size and temperament, the Chiweenie dog is best for families with older children, singles, or seniors. Although they are an energetic breed, the Chiweenie puppies do not need a lot of space due to their small size.  Therefore, they can adapt to smaller living spaces with or without a yard. Chiweenie dogs also tend to bark, making them good watchdogs.

Just as Chiweenies differ in appearance based on their lineage, their temperaments differ, too. Dachshunds are known for being rather strong-willed, while Chihuahuas are best described as feisty (or “saucy”). Chiweenies can inherit any traits from their pup parents.

Chiweenies puppies for sale will work in almost any family situation. They are happy-go-lucky dogs that offer the best of both breeds and make much better family dogs than Chihuahuas.

Chiweenies puppies are small dogs with big dog personalities who are steadfastly loyal and develop tight bonds with their owners. While the breed can be playful, affectionate, and cuddly lap dogs, Chiweenies often reserve the sweeter side of their personalities for their owners. They tend to be suspicious of strangers and may worry that their favorite toys, comfy bed, or yummy snacks will be kidnapped by these unfamiliar humans. Make sure to socialize your Chiweenie early in life so he can learn to be comfortable around new people and in new situations.


The Chiweenie is a Chihuahua-dachshund hybrid and isn’t recognized by the American Kennel Club as an official breed. Therefore, there isn’t much documentation about their history.

Gregory suspects that a dachshund and Chihuahua produced a litter of puppies that were so adorable, demand for the “breed” skyrocketed. These pups are the new dogs on the block, and their popularity has been growing over the last couple of decades.

Beware of “too good to be true” Chiweenies, because many designer crossbreeds are the product of puppy mill schemes. This means they might not be born into a healthy environment that focuses on their well-being.


While mixed breed dogs are generally believed to have fewer health issues than purebred dogs, Chiweenies are prone to some of the same health problems as their ancestors.

Chiweenies, like dachshunds, are at risk for back issues like a degenerative spinal condition called intervertebral disc disease. Hardening of the intervertebral disc, a material that helps cushion the spaces between the discs, causes IVDD. The disease causes severe pain, impairs movement, and can lead to partial paralysis. In severe cases, surgery is the only treatment for IVDD.

“We see IVDD more often in Chiweenies that have long backs like dachshunds,” Gregory says.

The disease might not be an issue in Chiweenies with Chihuahua-like bodies. Just like with dachshunds, keeping Chiweenie’s weight in check and not allowing them to jump on or off the furniture can minimize the risk of back injuries and IVDD.

Luxating patella is another health issue that’s common in small breeds like the Chiweenie. It’s diagnosed when the kneecap moves out of its normal location, making it difficult for the dog to put weight on the affected leg.

Although a luxating patella often causes no pain—and some dogs learn how to kick out their leg so the kneecap moves back into place—more severe causes can cause chronic dislocation and increase the risk of other injuries such as torn cruciate ligaments. Surgery can help correct more severe or chronic cases.

Like all small dog breeds, Chiweenies are also at high risk for dental disease. Bad breath, tartar buildup, and swollen, red gums are early signs of dental disease which, left untreated, increases the risk of infection. In addition to regular professional cleanings, Gregory says an at-home dental care program that includes dental chews and an at-home tooth brushing routine can help keep your pup’s teeth looking (and smelling) fresh.

Chiweenie Lifespan

Chiweenies have long lifespans, living 12–16 years.


Chiweenies are low maintenance and low shedding breed. Smooth-coated Chiweenies have “wash and go” coats that require minimal grooming; an occasional bath and brushing are all it takes to keep him looking his best. In colder climates, smooth-coated Chiweenies—just like their two parent breeds—may need a stylish sweater or coat to keep them warm.

Wire-haired or long haired Chiweenies also need occasional baths, but their coats will need more frequent brushing to prevent matting. Gregory advises brushing them a few times per week. Regardless of their coat type, all Chiweenies need regular nail trims to keep them from click-clacking across the floor. And routine teeth brushing is essential, as these little guys can be prone to dental disease.

Despite being small enough to curl up in your lap, Chiweenies won’t want to stay there all the time. Both dachshunds and Chihuahuas like tagging along after their owners, often following them from room to room (and accidentally tripping you from time to time). Chiweenies have the same need to be part of the action.

You won’t need to provide the same amount of exercise that active breeds like border collies or Labrador retrievers require, but your Chiweenie will require daily walkies and regular playtime. Even a game of fetch or tug of war from your living room will keep him happy.

Tired Chiweenies will happily claim lapdog status and curl up for a long nap beside their favorite people.


No two Chiweenies look alike. Depending on the traits they inherit from their parents, Chiweenies can have short legs, long bodies, erect ears, and bulging eyes, or long legs, short bodies, floppy ears, and overbites—or one of a dizzying number of combinations of these traits. Whether they resemble their mom or dad more, all Chiweenies are petite, standing just 6–10 inches tall and weighing between 5–12 pounds.

Both dachshunds and Chihuahuas have two coat types: Smooth and long-haired, and dachshunds also have a wire-haired coat. Chiweenie fur can be in any of the three. Those with smooth coats typically shed less than those with wire or long-haired coats but are by no means considered “hypoallergenic.” No matter the length or texture, coat colors can include white, tan, brown, and black; you can even find merle and brindle Chiweenies.
