When it comes to temperament, it is really difficult to pinpoint a super specific set of personality traits that you can expect from a chihuahua mix dog. It depends on the personality traits of both parents where the mixed pup could take after one parent or a mix of both.
One of the greatest concerns is whether or not they will be noisy. Chihuahua mixes bark a lot mainly if the dog is mixed with an equally yappy including yorkies, schnauzers and beagles. In such cases, you have to start training early to get them to only bark when necessary.
However, when mixed with calmer breeds, the designer doggies tend to be a lot easier to manage. This is the case with breeds like golden retrievers and labradors as well as pugs. You will still have to start training early just in case.
Chihuahua mixes more often than not end up being hyperactive and playful regardless of the other parent involved in the mix. Fortunately, it doesn’t take too much to make them happy and keep them sufficiently occupied even with small spaces like apartments.
You also have a lot to look forward to with chihuahua mixes when it comes to affection. These dogs are loving and loyal to their families. With training and socialization, they also get along well with other pets and with guests.
In a nutshell, chihuahua mixes are actually fantastic family pets. They are loving, playful and very intelligent. You just have to make sure you invest in training and keep them mentally and physically stimulated.
