We rescued this little guy a few months ago. His paperwork says Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix. I see the Jack Russell in his markings but not the Chihuahua. Anybody help me guess? According to the rescue he was a year old in December 2015. He's about 8 pounds, very dainty bone structure compared to my Jack Russell though, not as solid. Can you help me identify?? :p

I said minpin to a friend and they laughed. He does burrow a bit, mostly picks up the blanket with his teeth to move it lol.

Could be minpin, ours is something else. Have to be careful where we sit, he can be a bump under a blanket or a jacket or a towel.

Chi/JRT is possible. I suppose MinPin might be too but they usually have some pretty dominant dark colored genes if I'm not mistake. Maybe some Rat Terrier in there too.

Chi/terrier sounds very possible.
i think the head form looks a bit like that of a chihuahua, but I'm not the most knowledgeable when it comes to small dogs, so i could be wrong.
I'd probably go with Terrier-mix.
