Get both, make them fight to death, keep the winner.

Yorkies are better looking IMO... Most chihuahua's look like rats to me. Besides, the chihuahua's bark like poodles... None stop and high pitched.

I say go with the Yorkie.

EDIT::

LOL @ FROST! Good idea.

And yes, the Yorkie is WAY cute. :)

From what I have read the teacups, chihuahuas, and other small breeds do have a lot of genetic problems due to inbreeding in an attempt to keep the size down. Just something to be aware of. Me and my wife are on the other end of the scale. The largest (mass) breed as recognized by AKC. This is him at four months, he's now 130 pounds.

yea scratch the chihuahua. my mom just said hell no they are nasty dogs.

Sunsational04 05-31-2009 04:17 PM

CBRich.. wow your dog is HUGE! lol but he's adorable. I need a small dog only. and yes you are completely right about the inbreeding ive been doing a lot of research on it and thats a big thing they say

ChrisSlicks 05-31-2009 04:22 PM

The miniature dogs are mean, they have a complex from being beaten up by cats.

You can get a small dog (20 lbs or so) but stay away from the teeny tiny ones.

Crash 05-31-2009 04:32 PM

Well, my spaniel was about 25 Lbs for the most part and whooped other dogs butts of all sizes... So we had to keep her away from most dogs... If you get a tiny dog, be prepared to shell out a lot of dough and time for medical stuff. My dog racked up a LOT of bills because she's a pure bread. 15 years in and she's still fighting the good fight. But it's been hell for her at some points.

frost 05-31-2009 04:33 PM

I wouldn't get a pure bread again. It's not only bad for them, it's bad for you.

Sunsational04 05-31-2009 05:25 PM

why is it bad?

carguyg35 05-31-2009 05:29 PM

Get the Yorkie. They are a great dog. A little pricey but I know plenty of people who own them and are very happy.

CBRich that dude is going to be huuuuuuge, just research the breeder and see about referrals. Don't buy from a puppy mill. Good luck with the little guy. Here is my new boy, i'm co-owner, the breeder is going to show this one, Brass. Man i would be afraid i would step on something that small.

Purebred's have a weak gene pool (from repetitive in-breading) which means they typically have more health problems than a mutt. Even buying from a trusted breeder you still run the known risk of issues.

BanningZ 05-31-2009 06:55 PM

No purebreeds. Makes them stupid, unstable and many times physically impared (i.e.: Blind, hard of hearing)

Get a nice shelter mutt. :) Be the best choice you ever made. Talk about loyal and smart.
