We all know chihuahuas think they are big dogs but how well do they get along with big dogs?
I know my little Lucas adored his big 80 pound brother Buddy. In fact, when I came home one day and found that Buddy had passed away in his dog bed, Lucas was laying right there with his head on Buddy’s head. He was heartbroken when Buddy passed. They were the best of friends.
Recently I saw a post on our Facebook page where someone was asking if anyone else had a big dog along with their chihuahua. They had an adorable photo of a tiny little merle chihuahua and a big English bulldog.
I thought this subject would make an awesome idea for a gallery post and put the call out for big dog and chihuahua combos. We got almost 300 responses!
As hard as it was, I had to narrow it down quite a bit. So please enjoy this gallery post of big dogs with their little chihuahua companions.
This first one is the photo that started it all and was submitted Brooke Carmichael.
