Pronunciation: [Bos·ton ter·ri·er chə-ˈwä-(ˌ)wä]
The seemingly bizarre cross-breeding of the Boston Terrier and the Chihuahua is not nearly so odd as it may first seem. Both dogs were recognized early on and within a few years of each other by the American Kennel Club, became known in the United States around the same time and have similar personalities. The slightly larger size that may occur thanks to the Terrier along with the more friendly demeanor also helps to make the Chihuahua a little less headstrong. The result is a friendly, active and cute hybrid dog that can adapt to most home environments.
This hybrid can go by a variety of names: the ChiBo, the BoChi, the Bohuahua, or the Boston Huahua. Some owners even call these crossbreeds Boston Chi Parti dogs.
