Meet our new puppy, Mouse.

20210223_201613.jpg

She is twelve weeks old and weighs just three pounds!

Here she is on the ride home from the rescue:

And here she is meeting one of our cats:

Mouse is a chihuahua mix. She is the smallest puppy I've ever had. It is going to be a full time job keeping her happy and safe while she grows.

This is the smallest dog toy I could find at Petsmart:

She is just so darn cute.

What is she mixed with other than cuteness?

Congratulations on your mini barker :starshower1:
She is a shelter dog, so her breed is a bit of a mystery. Visual breed identification is pretty unreliable. The rescue got her from a kill shelter in California and they were unable to provide any details of her parentage or past history prior to coming into their care. We don't even have an exact birth date, just an approximate age.

She might be pure chihuahua or mixed with other small breeds. Based on her small size, I think she is mostly chihuahua. We are guessing she will be about 5 or 6 lbs fully grown, but only time will tell for sure.

Just wondered if possibly there may have been a touch of min pin in her :swoon:
Entirely possible. One of my other dogs is a doberman and her coloring reminds me a lot of hers. I don't know how common this kind of markings are among chihuahuas.

She also has large floppy ears. From what I've read, they should get perkier as she gets older, if she is all chihuahua. If they stay floppy, that would suggest she is mixed with something that has big ears.

What a cutie pie! The pic with the cat is just adorable.

Do you have Pet Supermarket? They have smaller toys IMO. I like the tiny tennis balls.

Adorable! She does look to have a lot of chihuahua in her. I have a chihuahua mix, and instantly recognized that chihuahua lip curl in the picture with the cat!

Miniature pinschers can often look a lot like chihuahuas as puppies, but I think they tend to be a little bigger overall. My sister has one.

I've always had bigger dogs but small dogs have a way of wiggling into your heart.
