AKC Chihuahua Puppies For Sale
I have two litters of puppies some black and white and some
fawn color. Have had first shot and have been wormed. These
puppies are seven weeks old.
your ad is scarce on important details, so i have some
questions. what are the parents' OFA scores (or registered
names, so that their scores can be looked up)? what about
CERF? what genetic health problems are common in Chihuahuas
and what have you done to insure that they don't occur in the
pups you've bred? what have you done to obtain an impartial
evaluation of your dogs' temperaments? also, why are you
selling these pups at such a young age? in many states it is
illegal to sell pups before they are 8 weeks old and
responsible breeders of toy breeds generally keep their pups
even longer than that.

If you are a person looking for a puppy let me make a suggestion about
deciding whether an advertisement is worth your time. Generally an
advertiser chooses to include those things that are of importance to the
potential buyer. Most of us who have pets care much more that our pets
are healthy and of good temperament than what color they are. So if you
are looking for a healthy pet with good temperament look for a breeder
who also values that. A breeder who advertises color and says not a word
about health or temperament is not a the best prospect for a carefully
An educated chihuahua buyer would know to ask a breeder what steps
they've taken to reduce the risk of patellar luxation in the puppies.
An educated breeder would be able to give a good answer and would also be
prepared to discuss the risks of other common problems.
