Chiweenies are very friendly, energetic dogs. They are incredibly loyal to their owners and can become jealous when other pets steal the spotlight. Chiweenies require a lot of attention and affection during their younger years but are incredibly content sitting on their owner’s lap as they grow out of the puppy stage. They are intelligent dogs but do require training. Some Chiweenies may bark excessively in the presence of a stranger while others are more mild-mannered. Overall they are social, affectionate and loyal companions who just want those same qualities in their owners..
