The Chiweenie is a hybird mix between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund, or weenie dog. They tend to have a sweet temperment. They are playful and love attention and cuddling. The Chiweenie doesn't do well with cold. It will tolerate and even appreciate a sweater on cooler days. Although they need exercise, they are good dogs for apartment life.
Like both the Chihuahua and Dachshund, Chiweenies come in longhair and shorthair varieties.
