Couple looking for Long hair Chihuahua. Resonably priced.
I would like to buy a long haired chihuahua. My son has one and I would like to raise one too. I live in York Pa. Please respond PJ Gryp
I live outside of Fort Worth. I have chorkies, one a year old and three 2 years old. The older ones both parents were registered but I did not register them because I couldn't find papers on the dad. Mom was a blue deer leg chihuahua-very rare in color, dad was silver and black yorkie. I need to find homes for them because I now have too many. The younger one was sired by one of my males and is very unusual looking...he somehow came out with blue eyes. Charlotte Boeker-Burris
Indeed a teddy bear chow. 8143376096 Christopher Martin
I live in Michigan, near Clinton Twp. Would like to find a reasonably priced Westie, not too old, with all shots and in good health. I do have a cat, so the dog would hopefully be cat-friendly. Lind Grammatico
With regrets, my mother has learned that she is allergic to her Westie. Westie is housed trained, up to date with shots, have his records and history of his linkage. Westie is 4 years old. Willing to practically give him away. Lenner
