Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I go to buy a puppy?
How it works: Go to www.chihuahuashome.com and browse through available puppies. If you don’t live near the shelter, the organization will handle transportation for your new best friend if appropriate. “We will fly the dog out in cargo if the flight is safe, the weather conditions are right, and the dog has the right health status to fly.
CAN I TAKE MY NEW PET HOME THE SAME DAY?
Just a few hours a day is possible for you to get your pet home but all depending on your location( state/city) from ours. Meaning it is possible, reasons being that if you’re close to us, you can come pick up the dogs by yourself.
But usually we love to accompany the dogs to their forever homes so as to have a look at the environment in which they’ll be in and also help settle them in and possibly take pictures the family and they will sign the transfer of ownership form the Nanny.

I receive many inquiries on the process of shipping a puppy–individuals often wonder if it is safe and how it works. Won’t he/she be scared? How long does it take? Won’t it be difficult for the puppy having to be all alone in a crate for so long? This is how I explain the shipping process to individuals to help them feel more at ease the process of getting a puppy: Shipping a Puppy Is Very safe: See Below Details
Shipping a puppy by itself to a new location always sounds cruel and embarrassing, but actually I think it is harder for us than the puppy(s). With my many years of shipping experience, I know for a fact that all of the pups are well taken care of. So if you stop and think about it, the airlines are not going to mistreat the puppy(s) for fear of lawsuit and customer dissatisfaction. I tape puppy(s) food and feeding instructions to the top of the crate and put frozen water in the crate, so it will gradually thaw out for the puppy(s) and the puppies are offered food along the ride.The average flight is approximately 2 to 5 hours. I always ask about any delays or layovers and know the exact times and departures of the flights, so I know where the pup is and am able to give you the information as well.
The pup will arrive the same day as it is sent–usually a few hours. I have a big fluffy bed of shredded newspapers in the crate for the puppy(s) to nestle in and usually a pig’s ear chew (they love them), and a toy or sock my scent on it–to help the pup feel secure.
If you decide on a puppy, I will guarantee -as I have many years of experience that he/she will arrive safe and sound. Puppies can be shipped safely between 20 and 85 degrees–All puppies ride in the belly of the plane where the temperature is kept at a comfortable 70 degrees–same as for the passengers–and they are the last on and first off the plane. Shipping during this time of year is completely safe and there is no problem so we need not to be afraid about that. Just like a person getting on a flight to go meet their relatives and/or friends for the holidays, shipping a puppy is very similar-and probably even a little easier. The only thing different about this time of year is that the airlines can be strict on the minimum temperature at each location (which is really good for the puppy(s) even though the plane is always kept at 70 degrees. I believe it is mainly for their liability and protection. Likewise, in the summertime–they will not ship if temperatures are too hot along the way. If this is the case, we will just wait for the next best day to ship or ship earlier or later in the day to combat the hot/cold part of the day.
NOTE.. Most shippers specialized in shipping pets will use a temperature regulation crate called an electronic crate.
These type of crates are used anytime since they can regulate the temperature to the one best for the puppy(s) travel
it helps me greatly if you can specify multiple times/days you (or any other person ID) would be available to pick up the puppy. So if you are interested in having one of the pups after all amounts have been received, I am able to book the pup. I will need to know the day(s) and time(s) you are able to pick up the puppy(s), your nearest airport, and your home address and phone number.
Due to the shape and size of Teacup Yorkies, one must be careful of their puppy breathing. Overexertion, heavy breathing, and other repertory problems may be more prominent. As well, yorkies are not the best swimmers. Because of this, you should not leave your puppy unsupervised around bodies of water. It would be a good idea to also keep any pools in your backyard enclosed.
Usually small-town vets are best. Word gets around small towns very quickly & if a vet has bad practices… small towns will talk Usually (not always). Small town vets are inexpensive as well. Also Try to search for a vet in your area & see reviews of consumers in your area as well.
