Default Cocker/Chihuahua Mix

I bought a cocker spaniel/chihuahua mix puppy last year. I've been
looking for info. to see if this mix exists anywhere and haven't found
anything. Has anyone ever heard of this mix?

First off, hold back on the rude tone - I was simply asking a
question.

Secondly, we didn't breed the puppy, we are not breeders. We are a
couple who wanted a dog and happened on her in a pet store. She was
very cute but very sick. We nursed her back to health and saved her
life. We don't know that much about dogs, this is our first one. She
has a very unique look so I'm just wondering has anyone else heard or
owned this mix.

And we call her a Cockahuahua.

Hopefully you didn't actually "pay" the store anything for a mixed breed dog
when they can be found by the millions in shelters. I applaud you for seeing
her through her problems, but actually buying "any" dog - purebred or mix,
from pet stores only encourages puppy millers and irresponsible breeders to
breed again.
However, what's done is done now.
I would imagine and hope, that none are breeding this mix, especially since
they are so diverse in size.
I would respectfully suggest that you "don't" tell people she's a
Cockahuahua. Designer names such as this, given to mixed breeds, often
encourages others to actually consider breeding them. The vast majority end
up facing the gas chambers of our shelters.
Cutsey names have done little to inform a gullible public and millions have
been taken to the cleaners, thinking them to be "real" breeds.
I suggest if anyone asks you what she is, that you just say she's a mixed
breed and leave it at that.

We hear what you are saying, but we fell in love and that was that.
We didn't know about this breeding issue. We understand the point you
are trying to make, but that wasn't what we were asking.

You must be a democrat

Thanks for the nice words.

If you have any sites with pix of cocker/chihuahua mixes, we wouldn't
mind checking them out. Our puppy has such a unique look, we are just
curious to see what other ones look like.
