Hello,
I adopted Leopold about seven months ago. We were told he was a pure chi but that's obviously not the case, and I'm very curious to know what his mix is! He has a very long, lithe body and angular features. He weighs 5.5lbs. He's VERY smart and quite skittish. My best guess thus far is a Chipin-anyone agree? Or have a better guess? Thanks in advance!!

He's so cute! I agree, he doesn't look like your average Chihuahua. Was he from a rescue? If that is the case I would guess mix, but if someone bred him he may just be a "Deer-head" Chihuahua. These are long-thin chihuahuas with pointed instead of rounded faces like the now more common Apple-head chihuahua.
