    Hi

    I'm a new dog owner so apologies in advance!

    We have in the last 4 months got a beautiful rescue dog from Romania called Patch. His history is hard to pin down, but he is just over a year old, and the nearest breed (he does look exactly like the pictures, white and tan) is a Cava Chi.

    I had never heard of the breed before and wonder if anyone has any information. He is a lovely little fee and so good, we are very lucky to have him

    As in a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Chihuahua?

    I only heard of these because I met one a month ago. He was a rescue and really cute.
    Do you have a pic of yours?

    If you mean a Cavalier crossed with a Chihuahua, then this is not a breed but a crossbreed and they will vary in looks from one dog to another depending which parent they inherited their genes from.

    I highly doubt there are many purebred CKCS and Chihuahuas on the streets of Romania. You'll have a little street-dog mongrel, who is lovely I'm sure, but not a ''Cavachi''.

    Yes, agree.

    There are not many purebred dogs in the streets of Romania. You most likely have a very mixed Breed, but none the worse for that.

    Jessie, the middle dog in my signature, is a Romanian rescue. Lovely little girl, but no telling what she is. A mixed Breed terrier type is the best description, I think.

    I'm sure your right, I am only going on what the vet says and his passport. Personally I don't care what he is as we love him to bits

    [​IMG] Mark and Patch

    hope to hear lots more about Patch as he settles in and that we see lots of pictures of him. I've never heard of this cross before but he sounds very cute.
