History The Chacy Ranior is a breed that was originally called the Shichon. This breed was developed in the year 2000 specifically for special needs children. The breeds used for the development of the Chacy Ranior include the Bichon Frise, Yorkshire Terrier, Maltese, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Poodle, Havanese, and Miniature Schnauzer.
In December 2005, the name of the breed was changed from Schichon to Chacy Ranior because of the mass confusion over the name Schichon and the cross of the Bichon and Shih Tzu. In 2006, the Chacy Ranior Club of America was formed. It's still not clear whether the Chacy Ranior is still undergoing development or not.
Appearance Dogs of this breed have a soft and dense outer coat as well as an insulating undercoat. These dogs have broad shoulders and a wide chest. As athletic dogs, they do excellently in obedience and agility trials. They have round eyes that are dark brown or smoky brown in colour, and have halos of dusk gray or black. These dogs have black, fine lips. Their teeth meet in a scissors bite, and an under bite is considered a fault. The tails of these dogs are left naturally and are sickle-shaped. A corkscrew tail is also considered a fault. Their feet are tight and round, resembling the paws of cats.
Colours The coat of these dogs can come in a wide variety of colours. Acceptable coat colours and colour combinations include tan, black and tan, liver, liver and white, white, apricot, black brindle, and black and white.
Temperament Chacy Raniors are stable, playful, alert, and outgoing dogs. Due to their intelligence, these dogs can be fairly easy to train. They also make great family pets because they are loyal. These dogs also get along well with children just as long as the children aren't rough with the dogs. These dogs are sensitive and seem to have the intuition to know when they need to be quiet and when they can be playful. Dogs of this breed need human companionship and should not be left alone for long periods of time. If the owners have to be away for quite a while, these dogs should at least have other canines or even cats as companions. Other household pets such as hamsters or guinea pigs, though, should not be left alone with Chacy Raniors.
Weight These dogs are approximately 9 to 12 inches high, and they weigh around 15 to 20 pounds.
Problems Generally, these dogs are very healthy and have no recorded genetic health problems. They may, however, be afflicted with umbilical hernia, although this is not considered a serious concern.
Living Conditions These dogs can be kept inside apartments just as long as they are provided with enough exercise. These dogs may be relatively inactive indoors, though, so it's still best for them to be given at least a small yard where they can run around and play.
Requirements Chacy Raniors are active dogs who need to be taken out for walks daily. These dogs should be given the chance to play, but play alone will not suffice as exercise because these dogs have a primal instinct to walk. Dogs of this breed who do not go for daily walks are more likely to develop behavior problems than those who do. These dogs also enjoy running around in a large, fenced-in area.
Training Requirements Due to their high intelligence, these dogs are fairly easy to obedience train. It's important for owners, though, to make sure that they do not use heavy-handed training methods on these dogs. These dogs should also be socialized well at an early age.
Life Expectancy Dogs of this breed are expected to live for around 12 to 15 years.
Grooming These dogs need to be groomed regularly, especially those that have long hair. Owners will find it easy to groom dogs of this breed that have a puppy cut. These dogs shed almost no hair and are good for those who suffer from allergies.
