Hard to compare a large dog to a chihuahua. I have several chihuahua mixes and each one is different. If you want a lap dog and one that is beside you a lot a chi is a good choice but if you want to play alot and take long walks then a large dog would be better. Read up on both and then see what fits into your lifestyle.

It is true that most chihuahuas tend to be high strung and nervous. That usually has to do with socialization. I have a chihuahua that was given to me as a gift and most people that come to my house say they have never seen such a friendly outgoing chihuahua. It takes work, but it is better for the dog not to let them rule the house (chihuahuas think they rule everything lol) I agree with several of the answers above, you really cannot compare goldens and chihuahuas as breeds rather decide for yourself what your life with the dog would entail. They are both wonderful breeds if properly cared for and trained.

I don't know that it's fair to say one breed is "better" than another. A better approach to selecting might be to ask fanciers of each breed about the dogs and discuss what your reasons for wanting a dog are and what you expect from the relationship--the type of personality YOU want, type of activities you plan with your dog, your daily lifestyle etc. THEN you will probably be in a position to begin looking for the actual dog that will be the best match for you! Good luck--hope you find a friend for life.
