Im looking for a chihuahua, but some of the older ones look really messed up, i saw a few with their eyes popping out and tongues out while doing research on them.


How does this happen? WHY does this happen? i've never seen it in another dog, im not sure if it has like a scientific name
I want to make sure i get a healthy chi that is still going to look normal when they get older :l
what should i look for when buying a chi?

heres examples:

that is the way that some are - all chihuahua's have the "apple head" look, their eyes are always going to look like that (that is a standard for the breed), of almost 30 years of being around them, I have never seen a chihuahua with a tongue hanging out all the time - I think that is a trait of certain lines, but I am not for sure on that as I have never experienced it.
look at this link: http://www.akc.org/breeds/chihuahua/

LOGAN - you aren't a vet - if you were, you would have a lot more technical & professional terms other than "old man". Geez. Look at some reputable websites of breeders & you will see that the standard for chihuahua's is the apple head & their eyes do water & have a little bit of a bug eye to them. Go to the link above & you will see what to expect.
