The Chilier is a mixed breed dog, a cross between the Chihuahua and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog breeds. Friendly, sociable and affectionate, these puppies inherit some of the best traits from both their parents. You can find these mixed breed dogs in shelters and rescues, so remember to always adopt. This mixed breed has a good reputation for being a very family-oriented dog that enjoys the company of people and bonds quickly with family members. They are also relatively relaxed and calm. Due to their small size, they are often suited to flat living, although they prefer to have access to a secure, fenced outdoor space. If you are considering adopting a Chilier, be aware that they often have a very strong independent streak that comes from their Chihuahua side, and can result in the dog being more difficult to train than normal.
