Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. They’re usually between two and six pounds. So if you’re looking for a pint-sized, portable buddy to take wherever you go, this pooch may be the right pal for you!
Their big personalities compensate for their size. In fact, these feisty fuzzballs can even be aggressive! It’s recommended that Chi owners socialize them as pups (as all dog breeds should be) so they can learn to put their best paw forward when making new friends.
The biggest brain in the dog world? In relation to their bodies, Chihuahuas’ brains are the biggest amongst dog breeds. But be careful with that noggin; Chi puppies have a molera, or soft spot on the skull (like human babies do). Some grow out of it, but some have it for the rest of their lives.
Chihuahuas are the spice of life. Talk about variety! This breed’s coat comes in a variety of styles; nine colors and six types of markings, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). Also, they can be either long or short-haired. Sounds like choosing a Chihuahua is like shopping at your favorite designer boutique.
They are popular pets in America. On the AKC’s” Most Popular Dog Breeds In America” list, Chihuahuas rank 24 out of the 178 breeds listed. Not too shabby!
Most likely they came from Mexico. And were named after the Mexican state Chihuahua. It is hypothesized that Christopher Columbus brought them to Europe, as he made mention of a small dog in a letter to the King of Spain.
Their life expectancy is high in the canine kingdom. Are you a long-term relationship kind of person? This dog has a long life expectancy, meaning the companionship with your Chi can last from 15-17 years (or more!).
Make sure to keep them warm! This peanut-sized pooch wasn’t bred for arctic temperatures. If you live in a chilly climate, make sure to get your Chi some extra layers for sweater weather. A romp in the snow is fine for petite pooches who enjoy it, as long as they’re monitored and don’t stay outside for too long!
