This little dog was discovered in the Gobi desert in China on 155-mile race.
The thinking that this dog is a “chihuahua cross” is a bit wrong, I think. I think she’s something a bit more special than that.
I think she is a landrace East Asian toy dog, the ancestral form that leads to the Pekingese, the original pug, the Japanese chin, and other dogs of this type.
I don’t there are many chihuahuas in the Gobi Desert, and she certainly should have her DNA tested.
