You want a chihuahua... I don't think that would be a problem sicne they are small, bark, yes they will bark so you have to control the barking from young coz all puppies and dogs bark. Anyway, Seriously see if your neighbours don't mind some barks here and there, generally, chis are a bit barkish... but I'm not sure since I only read about them and don't have them.
A female is better and easier to have in an apartment, if you spay her early, it would be good too so you won't have blood stains when she is on heat. A male would pee everywhere to mark his home, if you have a garden then he won't do it, but normally males will pee everywhere because it is in their nature, natural for them to mark their territory.
5 month puppy is the best to train and if you work and live alone, it is better to get a 5month puppy but you cannot breed the puppy after it is 2 years old or there will be problems like hard birth, death, small puppies or surgery..... it is advisable to leave the breeding of dogs to profesionals, if you're first time dog owner, you will have a hard time coz you'll have to have some1 at home everyhour, you will need to send the dog to the vet more and the $$$ will be very high if you breed dogs..... and you wil also need to know who willl take the puppies? Where will they end up? Sell to petshops, then that would be worst.....
Think first before acting......
Willy, my beloved shih tzu (22 March 1994- 8 August 2005) May you rest and live happily in Rainbow Bridge with the rest. You will forever be deeply missed by all.
Puppies and kittens, helpless and innocent are always roaming the streets as strays. Adopt from animal shelthers to save them.
