    Lovely sunny Perth! :-)
    Good on you Candace :D

    I'm from Australia too, and the whole backyard breeding thing is not known about as much here as it is in the States. And it really should be - it's a massive problem and awareness needs to be raised.

    Your little girl is SUCH a cutie! Oh! Love..... I'm so glad you made the right decision - not only for her, but for her puppies which will just be another lot to add the tens of thousands who already need homes. That's if they survived.

    Good for you!! :)

    I haven't read through all the posts, but it is very dangerous to breed chihuahuas because of their small size. I would never breed a chihuahua under 4.5lbs (which I feel is even too small to breed... 5-6lb preferably). Also, while your baby is gorgeous, she does not appear to have perfect confirmation... she looks like she has a deer type head, rather than an apple (which is fine for a pet quality chihuahua... my Madison is a deer type chihuahua as well and I love him to death).
    Good luck with whatever you decide :D

    Very cute! Ditto on the breeding. It's a territory for experts.
