I’m a chihuahua/yorkshire terrier mix, born on February 28, 2013. I’m a miniature 1.3 kg (2.8 lbs) and I got rescued from a puppy mill. My mom picked me up from Vermont where I stayed in foster care for a while. We met on! Since I crossed the border, I now live in Ottawa, Canada, with my human Hanako and my occasional foster brothers and sisters.
January 2019: We welcomed Tofu the chihuahua!





Kiwi is my first chihuahua that I got for my 9th birthday after years and years of begging for it. Together we traveled the world, competed in dog shows, earned multiple championships and became best friends. Kiwi will always be remembered as part of the family.
