  1. My first service dog was named Pixxi. My current service dog is named Zari. Both are Chihuahuas.

  2. I had a little rescue chihuahua and his name was Beanie. It was a great name for such a little lively boy. I will be getting another one in two weeks, thinking of using one of the names on your list, Mia. I also like Zoe.

  3. I had a chihuahua years ago that was this perfect Irish cream color all over his body. Even his nails eyes every tip of him so it only fit for his name to be Bailey for Bailey’s Irish Cream. My Husband just got me another chihuahua for my birthday we picked him up yesterday it took about a hour of being home to have the name Benny just pop in my head and he started coming to the name right off almost like he told me what his name is. He he is Black with the tan/brown markings. Is has become already one of the biggest loves of my life! My Husband of course is getting very special treatment right now cause of this too. LOL

  4. Our little niece named our two boys Tater and Tot! Why? Only the mind of a 7 year old little girl knows, but we love them and their names!

  5. My Chihuahua had a puppy and she is black with tan markings. What is a good name for her having trouble figuring out a good name for her.
