interbreeding within a species

Chihuahuas and Great Danes do not interbreed. Why are they considered to be part of the same species?

The fact that a chiuaua and a great dane dont mate is simply because of the size difference. If a female great dane mated with a male chiuaua, it would be perfectly fine. The only problem would be if the chiuaua was female, because the offspring would be like, the same size as it at the time of birth.
