What Are the Traits of a Chihuahua and Fox Terrier Mix?

A Chihuahua and Fox Terrier mix may have traits such as short stature, stocky weight, tightly curled tail and large ears that stand upright. Also called Taco Terriers, these dogs can be a first-generation mix of a Chihuahua and a Fox Terrier or a multigenerational cross of Taco Terriers.

Taco Terriers are also called Chitoxy. These diminutive dogs can be many different colors, including brown and white, black, light brown and white. Their ears are typically larger than their heads, and they tend to stand up straight and slightly fold over like a Chihuahua's ears. However, their faces and stocky shapes are more similar to a Fox Terrier's features.

Toy or Mini Fox Terriers are a small American breed of dog. These dogs weigh between 3 and 7 pounds, and they are between 8 and 11 inches high at the shoulder. Historically, this breed of dog was used to chase rats and hunt small game, but they are also family companions.

Chihuahuas are also small, weighing between 3 and 6 pounds. Chihuahuas stand between 6 to 9 inches high at the shoulder. These small dogs come in a range of colors, they have fun personalities, and they can learn tricks.
