Chihuahuas are a breed that are often mixed with other types of dogs.

These Mexican dogs are usually crossed with other small breeds to create a designer dog that can act as a companion pet.

However, sometimes a male Chihuahua is crossed with a larger dog, resulting in a unique mix.

There’s mixed views on whether dog breeds should be mixed to create these so-called designer dogs.

Sometimes it can lead to health issues, especially if breeders aren’t carrying out the necessary checks and screenings.

Of course, you’ll often find a Chihuahua mix at a shelter due to breeding between abandoned or stray dogs.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at 28 Chihuahua mixes.

The Affenhuahua

The Affenhuahua is a cross between an Affenpinscher and a Chihuahua. The mix usually results in a toy-sized dog that is usually relatively small and scruffy in appearance. They can also be called Affen Chi. Given the Affenpinscher usually has a coat that ranges from dark grey, dark black and dark brown, most Affenhuahuas will have a coat that is dark brown, black, tan or dark blue. Chihuahuas are usually long haired and short haired so an Affenhuahua could have a short fur or long fur.

BoChi

The BoChi, otherwise known as a Boston Huahua, is a mix between a Boston Terrier and a Chihuahua. The BoChi is a lively dog that make superb companion dogs. They like to be in the company of humans given both the Boston Terrier and Chihuahua usually function as companion dogs. Other characteristics include affectionate and loyal. Most BoChi will have the big, round eyes that are associated with Boston Terriers.

Bolo-Chi

The Bolo-Chi is the result of breeding between Bolognese and Chihuahua. The Bolognese is regarded as an excellent dog for first-time owners or senior people. They’re a docile and friendly breed. Chihuahuas can have big personalities in spite of their tiny stature. The traits that a Bolo-Chi inherits from each of their parents can vary from dog to dog.

Boxachi

Boxers and Chihuahuas are two common breeds. When you cross these two popular dogs you get a hybrid dog called a Boxachi. Like a lot of so-called designer breeds, the Boxachi is a relatively new mix so there’s not a lot of history about them. The Boxer is a larger dog than a Chihuahua, so a Boxachi could range from six to twenty inches, while they can weigh from ten to forty pounds. They’re coat color has a lot of room for variety as well: black, blue, white, red, fawn and cream.

Bullhuahua

When you cross a Bulldog and Chihuahua get a Bullhuahua. The mix usually results in a medium-sized dogs. The Chihuahua is best known for their sassy personalities, while the Bulldog’s standout trait could be their muscular frames. Of course, each Bullhuahua could inherit different traits from each parent so it’s difficult to stereotype the crossbreed. However, the Bulldog Chihuahua mix could have characteristics such as being affectionate, loyal, proud and social.

Cheagle

Chihuahuas and Beagles are two breeds that are universally recognised. The result of intentional or unintentional breeding between these two dogs creates a Cheagle. The mix can also be called Chi-Bea and Chibeagle. They’ll usually be smaller in size than the Beagle breed, reaching a height of nine to fourteen inches and weighing around nine and twenty pounds. A Cheagle can embody the affectionate and loving side of the Beagles as well as the sassiness of the Chihuahua.

Cheeks

The Chihuahua Pekingese mix is sometimes called Cheeks, Pekachi, Pee-Chi, Pekachu and Pikachu (for Pokemon fans). Chihuahuas and Pekingeses have served as companion dogs for centuries. Therefore, a cross between a Chihuahua and a Pekingese will result in a mixed dog that likes to be in the company of humans. They usually don’t require a lot of exercise. Cheeks are great apartment dogs given their moderate care needs.

Cheenese

A cross between a Havanese and a Chihuahua can result in a Cheenese. Like the Pekingese breed, Havanese dogs are usually affectionate, gentle and sweet. They’ve been used as companion dogs. The Cheenese can come in a variety of different colors, including fawn, cream, brown, black and white.

Chi Chon

Yet another dog that is perfect for first-time owner is the Bichon Frise. When you cross a Bichon Frise with the tiny Chihuahua, you get a small dog called a Chi Chon. These designer dogs are good-natured pups that will put smiles on faces with their happy personalities. Both the Chihuahua and Bichon Frise like to be around their owners, so Chi Chon should be the same. They won’t like to be left alone for long spells.

Chiweenie

Most dog lovers will probably be able to figure out what a Chiweenie is. When you breed a Chihuahua with a Dachshund, you get this so-called designer dog.

Chihuahuas are a small breed that have moderate exercise needs. However, the influence of the working Dalmation means that a Chimation will have more energy.
