Chiuahuas most of the time need a caesarian.I had to take my female to the vet on March 14th for one and lost her on the 16th of march.So now I am bottle feeding her babies.I have been breeding Australian Shepherds for 7 years so I know what to do but she was the first Chi that I have ever bred.Don't bred your female leave it to a Chihuahua breeder that know what to do.. If you are asking about rare Chihuahuas you don't need to breed...... I will never breed Chihuahuas again.
Like another member said, Chihuahuas come in a variety of colors. A lot of breeders will tell you certain colors are rare to make more money. I have never heard of black and white (even with spots) as being rare. I have a chocolate and white with spots and I see Chis like her all the time.
Usually the colors they say are rare are merle and blue. I know that blues are recessive genes, but I don't know about merles. Usually recessive genes have more skin problems. People tend to be more mesmerized by a certain color and some breeders profit off of that. Blues are really popular in my state. I have heard of merles in other states, and chocolates in others. If black and white are really popular in your area, people will want them more and pay more. But it doesn't make it rare.
Like other members have said if you love your dog then dont breed them. Just because a chi has a good coloring, doesnt mean that the puppies are guarenteed to look exactly like that. You should wait until the dogs are 2 years old to make sure that they have had proper testing. If you think you have to breed, please make sure that your female and male are very great examples of the breed
My chi is white with black spots all over it. I hear alot of people saying that they don't see black and white chis that often, but I agree with what the other members are saying, they are not rare. I have seen some black and white spotted chis, though. One day when I was walking down a street in Philly I saw a chi that looked very similiar to mine. It was cute and fiesty little thing!
I think many people get in trouble breeding small dogs when they use super small females. If your female is on the medium side and the male is very small, chances are she will be able to pass the pups just fine. Plus, when purchasing a female pup with the intent of breeding, you should always pick the healthiest pups w/ excellent bloodlines AND always ask the breeder before purchasing if the pup you are interested in was born via c-section or free-whelped. Good luck.
