Happy Trail's Belshazzar ~ Standing At Stud
Bell likes to sleep in Lindy's lap while she is doing her needle work! She enjoys this and so does he. He is quite settled and enjoys being petted. He also enjoys running, very fast. Some times he runs all over the place playing chase with Sam or a puppy Steve says, there goes Bell playing Zoom Zoom! He is a very friendly dog, socialized and people oriented. We see these characteristic pass on to his offspring as well.
Bell is just over a 1 year old in the above photo. We have enjoy his friendly and curious personality and his protective nature of sounding the alarm when strangers approach.

Make sure you carefully consider whether or not breeding is right for you before starting.
You will need to have some money set aside for the necessary health exams as well as any other unexpected medical costs. The necessary costs include the stud fees and the cost of whelping the puppies. The most expensive unexpected cost could be the need for a C-section since the smaller Chihuahuas can have difficult births. After birth it is also important that you take both the mother and her new puppies to the veterinarian for a complete check up to make sure everyone is healthy.
After your mother dog has given birth to the new puppies then your real work begins. You will need to have lots of food on hand for the puppies once weaned and be prepared to get them their vaccinations on time. For the first few weeks you will need to devote a lot of time to both the mother and her puppies. Make sure you weigh the puppies each day and keep tract of their weight. If you notice a puppy isn't feeding then you will need to bottle feed them every two hours.
