FOR THE LVE OF CHIHUAHUAS!
OF SPECIAL NOTE TO CHIHUAHUA BREEDERS:
If you are considering breeding the Merle Chihuahua, please visit the Chihuahuas of a Different Color Forum - the place for information geared specifically towards the responsible breeding of the beautiful merle Chihuahua!
Also, if you are a show breeder, whether you have years of experience or are working on your first show hopeful, and are tired of the flaming & harassment found on the other "show lists," please join us at ChiWags-N-ShowBrags - a Yahoo group specifically for those involved in exhibiting Chihuahuas and who want to have a positive impact on this special little breed!
EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO RESPONSIBLE BREEDING!
NOTE RE MERLE DNA TESTING FOR "HIDDEN" MERLES:
GENMARK is no longer performing the Merle DNA test. This test has NOT been proven inaccurate, incorrect or false as some anti-merle breeders are claiming; rather, the submission methods could not be verified by permanent ID (i.e. by microchip or tattoo number as is done with OFA for hips, etc.), thus it was possible for those wishing to call the validity of the test into question to send in DNA from the "wrong" dog and then claim the test was not accurate. Hopefully someone else will offer the test again in the future along with a way of verifying results by way of permanent ID. OF COURSE MERLE HAS BEEN BRED SAFELY AND RESPONSIBLY FOR MANY MANY YEARS WITHOUT THIS TEST AND CAN AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE DONE SO BY RESPONSIBLE CHIHUAHUA BREEDERS.
