The Chipin is a result of cross breed between a miniature Pinscher and a Chihuahua purebreds. They are small size hybrids that are produced for apartment life style. They are about 8 to 12 inches and weigh around 6-18 pounds. These small size hybrids are very good family dogs.
They are found in many colours. Usual colouring for these dogs are black, black with tan, tan and white, light cream, tan, tan and chocolate and stag red.
The Chipin has a smooth, silky coat and is short in length.
The Chipins are high energy dogs despite their small size. They are playful, intelligent, social and friendly. They need lots of interaction with their family. They are not the dogs to leave alone for a longer period of time. They want to be with their family most of the time. They need exercise and walking routines daily to use up their high energy levels. If not properly exercised, they will be running around the house and may show some undesirable behavior. They may not be suitable for small children due to their highly excitable nature. They get excited very easily.
They should be supervised when near children as they may harm them during their play.
They are easy to train. Due to high energy levels, training is a good energy releasing routine for these dogs.
They need to burn up their high levels of energy in some positive way. Regular long walks and ample playing opportunities are one way to fulfill their need for exercise. They love to run and will be running around the house if they are not properly exercised.
