Hi Guys, my name is James, and I’m new to this forum. I’m in need of some advice. My partner and I are thinking of breeding our KC registered Chihuahua. She’s registered on the Kennel club as a smooth coat, but she looks more like a long haired Chihuahua. Both her Mum and Dad are smooth coat. Ive checked all the kennel club papers online, going back up the family tree. I can only assume that our precious dog’s mum and dad have a “hidden gene” that has made her a long coat, even though majority of her siblings were smooth coat. 5 puppies as her siblings, 2 long haired looking chihuahuas, and 3 smooth coat looking chihuahuas all registered as smooth coat. If I was to breed my precious Chihuahua, wouldn’t this affect the time of selling my puppies. People seeing smooth coat puppies, but the mum having a long coat. Some friendly advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
