can you breed father and daughter Chihuahua

That is never wise in any breed. Some breeders in the past have done it to strengthen qualities they found desirable in the father. However, if the father had passed a recessive trait for a genetic defect (say blindness) their pups would have a much greater chance of exhibiting that trait. This is what is meant by a smaller gene pool. Always look for a non-related, healthy male.

No please, never!! You never know what recessive genes are hiding in their gene pool and can be released when doubled.
