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

The Red-Nosed Pit Bull is a result of close inbreeding of the "Old Family" strain of Pit Bulls in Ireland in the mid-1800s. These dogs made their way to the United States through immigration with their owners. Efforts have been made throughout the years to preserve the strain, but breeding with other strains has made Old Family Red-Nosed Pit Bulls less common.
The Old-Family Red-Nosed Pit Bull is usually red in color. Red-nosed dogs of other strains, or that are products of the breeding of various strains, may be any color. These dogs are stocky, and tend to be on the large side of normal for Pit Bulls. Average height is 18-22 inches for males and females, and average weight is 35-65 pounds, with females weighing slightly less than males.
Care and Feeding
The Pit Bull diet should contain beef, poultry, brown rice, and corn. This breed needs lots of fiber and few carbohydrates. Essential fatty acids are good for the Red-Nosed Pit Bull's coat. Red-Nosed Pit Bulls shed moderately, so they require regular brushing. Baths should be given as needed. Red-Nosed Pit Bull owners sometimes have their ears clipped, but it is not customary to do so.

Handling and Training
Red-Nosed Pit Bulls must be well socialized when they are young. They excel at obedience, tracking, and agility training.

Jamie - 2015-07-31 I just got a Red nosed pit. She is a beautiful baby, thinks she is a lap dog! ;) but her fur is very stiff, itchy and dry. Any suggestions to help ease the itching for her?
Clarice Brough - 2015-08-06 These little guys are prone to more skin problems than other breeds. It's said they can have allergies to some food ingredients, so you might look into that.
Chrystal - 2015-09-04 Hello my dog has a lot of allergies to grass and stuff. so my vet told me to give my dog benadryl. you will have to ask your vet the dosage. but works great. I a lot give her an oatmeal bath when she starts itching a lot.
jean - 2016-10-01 for itching, etc we have found that one teaspoon per day of LOCAL non pasturized honey really works to relieve such symptoms. and our tally really likes it. good for allergy relief without benydril drug.
paige - 2016-06-08 you can rub coconut oil in her hair and leave it on for about a hour. do it 3 times a week and it'll show results.
Jeff Pendergraft - 2016-09-24 My wife shampooed ours with tea tree oil shampoo, upgraded to a better food, and used coconut oil on his fur a couple times a week and a little in his food and people are shocked how silky soft he is now. He was very course before and had terrible dandruff when brushed.
