We just adopted a 6 week old Chihuhua Feist Mix. He is so small and cute and loving. We named him Bandit. (The husband picked it out)

He's adorable! Be VERY careful, given his age he can barely regulate his own body temperature right now and given his breed mixed with the age he's at serious risk of his blood sugar going too low as well. Make sure to feed him multiple meals during the day and watch for him becoming lethargic, and you will also want to have him on a heating pad (under a blanket on low) or with a hot water bottle when he's sleeping so that he stays warm enough (or put him in a room of the house where the heat can be cranked up). 6 weeks is VERY young (should stay with mom and littermates until 8-10 weeks) and in mini breeds can be dangerous so please be very very careful.

Good luck he's adorable!
