  • I would, they rock! There will be an adjustment period and a little jealousy when the baby comes though.

  • I personally don't like small dogs. They bark too much! Not ideal for a newborn =(

  • I would love to have a small dog, but my husband does not want one. You could probably use the company right now when you are waiting for the baby to come, but once the baby arrives you will be too busy for the dog. Find out if the dog needs a lot of attention or if it is of the age where being ignored is ok.

  • I would. I took a chihuahuain right before I got pregnant. She is my DD's little sidekick. She even sleeps by her bed at night.

  • nope, I have never liked chihuahua's.. even though I love dogs. They just bother me for some reason. Not my kind of dog

  • I have a Chihuahua ...her name is Princess. She is the BEST dog ever..she loves my kids and other people. She's not a yappy barky dog at all. Shes very calm. We got her when she was 8 weeks old, and has been raised around 3 kids. Id say get it if you can afford to take care of it. There very low maintence and very loyal loving dogs

  • I would! Every Chihuahua I've ever met has been great. On of my neighbors has one and he is so sweet. I've never heard him bark. To the person who said small dogs bark too much; it depends on its TRAINING not its SIZE.
