DIXON, ILLINOIS -- IMPRESSIVE CHIHUAHUAS of Dixon, Illinois, DBA: Impressive Kennel/Chihuahuas. Di Di has Color Mutant Alopecia (blue syndrome) and was sold to me by Impressive Kennel/Chihuahuas as a show potential female. Di Di has been officially diagnosed as having Color Dilution Alopecia (blue syndrome) aggravated by airborne allergies. Not only is she completely bald from head (including complete backs of ears) to tail on the top side, she requires expensive medication and injections for the pus oozing sores caused by allergies often affecting dogs with Alopecia. This is a lifelong condition with no cure only medical management. Thyroid test, mange, etc. were negative. Di Di's breeder refuses to take her back and give me a replacement puppy or my money back. The truth of the matter is; She couldn't care less about Di Di and Di Di was someone else's problem as soon as the money was in her pocket. Chihuahua Puppy buyer: BEWARE!

Poor little puppy. I would find it hard to give back a dog after having it more than a day or two. I would think about small claims court to at least compensate for partial vet bills. I hope you fall in love with this dog and give it the love it deserves.

Put the dog out of it's misery. Sue the breeder for the costs. You don't want to have to spend thousands on a dog. They're great, but they're not human. Save your money for ER visits that you may need.
