Miniature Pinscher Chihuahua Mix Breed: A Guide To The Chipin Dog
The chipin dog breed originated from China and it was first recognized in 1881. There are two types of chipin dogs: the puget and the chihuahua. They have different appearance, but they share many characteristics such as their small size, their friendly nature and their love of music.
The chipin dog is a medium sized dog with a long body and short legs. Their head measures between 20–25 cm (8–10 inches) in length and weighs between 10–15 kg (22–32 pounds). The ears are large and round while the nose is pointed.
Their eyes are brownish black or dark brown with some white around them. The tail is long and slender.
They have a wide chest, which allows them to stand upright even when carrying heavy objects. They have a short muzzle that makes it easy for them to hold things in their mouth. Their bodies are covered with hair, especially the underbelly fur, which gives them a furry look.
Some chipin dogs have no underbelly fur at all; others only have light colored ones.
The chipin dog has a sleek, shiny coat. This breed comes in a wide range of colors, such as black, dark brown, red, gray, silver or white. The hair is short and smooth and it needs to be brushed at least once a week.
They shed their undercoat twice a year, so it is important to brush them more frequently during this period. They skin is also prone to sunburn, so they should only be allowed outside during the night or in the morning. The chipin dog has a sense of hearing and smell that is more advanced than a human’s.
The chipin dog can be either quiet and shy or very active and outgoing, but they are always affectionate and loyal to their families. They get along well with children and other dogs, but they tend to be wary of strangers.
