I'm new to this choosing a puppy thing. My parents have always done it for the family...but finally, it's my turn. I'd love to hear your advice!
So, today at a certain Petsmart, there were some 9 week old chihuahua mixes. They have the mother, who is a chi, but no idea about the father, since this was a rescue.
The cost of one is $350, rightly to pay for the cost of the spay/neuter surgery, plus any other expenses incurred (i.e food).
Should I get one?! I want a small dog (she said they will remain under 10lbs.), already fixed, utd on shots, and dewormed.
I also want one that young, who has been somewhat socialized, since I want to socialize mine perfectly, as I don't want a yappy, dependent, protective chi. These dogs live with littermates and one other litter at the moment, and I will strongly continue socialization myself.
Thanks for the advice!!!
