Back to TG's Chihuahuas

Chocolate is a rarer color in chihuahuas, but only because it seems to not be popular with many breeders. It is a beautiful color none the less. It can appear brown, like the color of a chocolate bar, or somewhat reddish. In terms of genetics, chocolate is in the same class as the blues. The b and d groups have similar results, in diluting, or changing the black pigment. It is the b/b gene that causes the chocolates.
