    We were told yorkie/chihuahua mix but I'm not sure (all images I try to look at of this mix do not look like him)--
    What do you think?

    He looks dachshund x yorkie to me. I don't see chihuahua in him at all.

    ETA: After googling pictures, I stand by my guess:

    hmmm

    those puppies do look similar to him (although his hair is wiry--I suppose it could be a wire haired dachshund)
    he isn't short though and he doesn't have a long body at all--
    The vet suggested maybe some Rat Terrier of some sort too?
    He is an enigma! :)

    Could easily be Yorkie Chihuahua, even though google images doesn't neccesarily match.

    Could be Yorkie JRT. My Silky Terrier (very similar to Yorkie looks-wise) had a litter of puppies with a JRT when I was a kid, and one of them looked IDENTICAL to Plinko. Same coloration (but with some white), face shape, coat type, ears, etc.

    Yorkie JRT from google:

    The dachshund/yorkie looks pretty dang close, though!

    I'm wanting to say Min Pin, they are also very small, and black/tan.
