Don’t Breed Those Dogs

Scores of mixed-breed dogs awaiting adoption should dissuade you from breeding a Chihuahua with a MinPin.

Q. I’m interested in breeding a male Chihuahua to a female Miniature Pinscher. Is it something that has been done?

A. I have to strongly discourage you from breeding a Chihuahua to your Miniature Pinscher. Huge numbers of Chihuahuas and Miniature Pinschers are sitting in shelters and breed rescues all over the country in need of homes. Dedicated, knowledgeable Chihuahua and MinPin breeders do full genetic screening of their animals and are totally committed to producing the soundest, healthiest dogs possible, with the very best temperaments. Please leave breeding to knowledgeable breeders, and don’t add to the problem by creating more so-called “designer” mixed-breed dogs.
