what exactly is a blue chihuahua and what makes a blue chihuahua puppy different from other chihuahua puppies?  all chihuahuas are special and unique in their own way, but blue chihuahuas are best described as a chihuahua puppy that is bred to have a dull silver-grey-coat with a tinge of blue.

a blue chihuahua is rare and can be an apple head chihuahua or a deerhead chihuahua and is produced from mating a black and tan chihuahua, a chocolate, or even a fawn parent, but the parents must carry the recessive blue gene in their line of heritage.  the blue in a blue chihuahua can also be part of a merle patterned – tri-colored or multicolored coat.

the chihuahua club of america warns that coat color in chihuahuas is often linked to genes with undesirable traits or birth defects.  the merle pattern and blue coat color can often come with common health problems.  this is another reason that blue chihuahuas are rare.

like teacup chihuahuas, much controversy exists around the subject of breeding blue chihuahuas by blue chihuahua breeders as hidden defects on the gene that is linked to the blue color can result in serious coat problems and other health issues.  for these reasons, it is advised to never breed a blue chihuahua with another blue chihuahua.

because blue chihuahuas are rare, there’s a slim chance that you’ll find one in a shelter.  in some countries, they are highly prized and can set buyers back up to $10,000 depending on how popular they are.  chihuahuas are currently the ‘hot’ dog breed in japan, a country where their fast-growing pet industry is estimated at more than $10 billion a year.

paying high prices for a chihuahua with a particular trait as such is purely the decision of the buyer, however famous chihuahua would like to remind potential chihuahua buyers that rescued chihuahuas like papi the star of beverly hills chihuahua and loki, actor mickey rourke’s dearly departed chihuahua, are prime examples of big surprises than can come in a small package.

    Me and my girlfriend went over to a breeder to pick a chi. When we arrived, we were met by a proper blue colored, with dark spots, chihuahua. Not a tinge of blue, but actual blue. He were not posted on the ad, but he were in fact for sale, so i reckon it was to not have someone buy it, just to resell it. We picked one of the others, because he chose us right away. The blue one (called ‘bluey’ by the breeder) were too distracted playing with one of its brothers. I’ll never forget that marvelous color.

    I have a blue teacup chihuahua and she’s had a litter with 3 being blue and one is a beautiful golden color. I am unable to keep them and need to find them a good home so there will be a rehoming fee to homes I feel are suitable for these angels .
