Other Names
  • Silky Chi

The Silkyhuahua is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chihuahua and the Silky Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Rosie the merle Silkyhuahua shown here at 8 weeks old—"She is a really smart puppy. At 4 months old she looks for ways to get to certain places by climbing and she acts like she's a Billy goat. As small as she is, she jumps amazingly high. She should have been named Zipper because she zips around the house so fast it's hard to keep your eyes on her."
