What are Chihuahua and Papillon mix puppies?

Answer

A Chihuahua and Papillon mix is commonly called a Chion. Sometimes, these mixed dogs are also referred to as a Papihuahua.

The Chion is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club and the International Designer Canine Registry. These dogs typically weigh between 5 and 8 pounds and have a long life between 10 and 15 years.

Chions tend to bark a lot, especially at strange noises. Because of this, they make excellent watchdogs. They can be shy around strangers but are playful and friendly with their families. They get along well with children, especially if raised with them, and they are energetic, playful dogs.

Although mixed breeds are generally healthier than full breed dogs, Chions have a few health issues that prospective owners should be aware of. Dental issues and bad knees can be common in these dogs, and because of their large eyes, eye injuries tend to be somewhat common as well.
