No, its not a new breed, its a MUTT. Its just two breeds mixed together and the ones that bred it are passing it off as a new breed to get money from the unsuspecting. Hope they didnt pay a fortune for it.

She paid I think around $400 at a pet store. It is very cute. I will not tell her as it might make her feel bad.

Gee thats a huge price to pay and its only encouraging backyard breeders and puppy millers when you buy from a pet store. But anyway as long as she looks after it and loves I suppose it has a great home. Pity that she is under the influence that it is a new breed though....lol.

Its not a new breed, its actually a mutt. . a cross between a Dachshund and a Chihuahua. If your friend rescued it from a shelter, then good for him/her. If they bought it from a petstore, they seriously got ripped off.

Ouch...she did buy it from a petstore. I will not tell her as it might make her feel bad. It is just the cutest little dog though.

Why not tell her? Spread the knowledge. Its better to know than to go through life continuing to make the same mistakes. Maybe if its possible she could take it back and opt for saving a dog at a shelter instead of supporting an enterprise that cranks out dogs for profit without any concern for their health.
