While typically short-coated, both Chihuahuas and dachshunds can be long-haired, as can Chiweenies.
Are Chiweenies good family dogs?
Is A Chiweenie A Good Family Dog? Chiweenies can be suited to families, providing they are socialized from puppyhood.

How many times a day should a Chiweenie eat?
As a general guideline, your dog needs to eat between 1/2 and 1 cup of food every day, split into two meals. Luckily Chiweenies tend to regulate their food intake to cover their daily needs, so if you pay attention to leftovers, you’ll know pretty easily how much food she needs and when to feed her.
