A Chiweenie is a designer hybrid dog created by crossing a Chihuahua with a dachshund. This dog is also known by the nicknames "Mexican hotdog" and "German taco."
The Chiweenie has a long body and short legs like a dachshund and large ears like a Chihuahua. It is a highly energetic dog, making it a good choice for active individuals. It is loyal to one or two people in a family situation, but it needs to be watched around children. Although it is a friendly dog, it can be stubborn and needs to be trained at a young age. It does best in an indoor setting, but it is especially difficult to house train. The Chiweenie also loves to burrow and bark.
