Of Special Note to Chihuahua Breeders: If you are considering breeding a merle Chihuahua, please do your homework beforehand, as choosing to include merle in your breeding program does come with very specific dos and don'ts. I am in the process of building a site geared specifically towards the responsible breeding of the beautiful merle Chihuahua and to be a resource for those choosing to include merle in their quality program. As with ALL breeding, education is key!
