Have you heard of a Chiweenie?
The Chiweenie is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund.
This cross breed is relatively uncommon in comparison to some hybrid dogs, such as Labradoodles and Cavachons.
The Chiweenie is growing in popularity, partly helped by the viral sensation, Tuna Melts My Heart.
