The beginnings

Chihuahuas were first discovered in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, though their origins can be traced back to the Tox culture. This pre-Colombian culture was active between the 10th and 12th centuries. It is thought that the Chihuahua’s small size is attributed to Taichi, a well-known breed of dog during that time.  Of course today, as Chihuahuas are small enough to fit in your lap, it makes them an ideal companion.
They have become increasingly popular with celebrities such as Paris Hilton, who is known for carrying her tiny pup around in her purse wherever she goes.

Fearless and Fierce!

Chihuahuas are a great companion for those looking for a tiny, loyal pup. This breed is known for its small size, big personality and feisty attitude.
These tiny pups are one of the smallest breeds of dogs and typically weigh between 1.8 and 3.2 kg (47 lbs).
The Chihuahua is considered to be one of the bravest dog breeds according to FCI standards, making them excellent watchdogs.They are also intelligent, lively, pious, restless, gregarious, and loyal. Often, these dogs develop a deep attachment with their owners and can become extremely attached making them fantastic companions as long as you can give them the attention they need.

Health and fitness

Chihuahua puppies are born with a cranial soft spot. This is because the bones of the skull have yet to finish forming. While this is a hereditary issue that is common in small breeds owners should be aware of it. Chihuahuas are known to tremble from time to time. While it is common for them to shake due to cold temperatures, trembling can occur for a variety of reasons such as enthusiasm or fear.
If your Chihuahua is still a puppy, they may be trembling due to hypoglycemia (or low blood sugar) if they miss a meal, are overexcited or after exercise.  They do still require regular exercise and are easily susceptible to cold temperatures so keep them warm.
Despite their small size, Chihuahuas have a big personality and can be quite feisty and energetic.  Chihuahuas can live up to 20 years, making them one of the longest living breeds of dog.

Characteristics and charisma

Chihuahuas come in a variety of colors, including white, black, brown, and brindle. Chihuahuas come in two varieties—smooth coat and long coat. The long coat variety has a thick, silky coat that requires regular grooming. These pups are very intelligent and can be trained to do tricks and obey commands.
Chihuahuas are alert little dogs and make good watchdogs. They are known for their loud barking and can be a bit protective of their owners.  Chihuahuas are also becoming popular in the United States and Europe for their toy-like size and lively temperaments.
They are one of the most popular breeds in the world, and it’s easy to see why. With their loyal, brave, and feisty personalities, Chihuahuas are perfect for anyone looking for a loyal and loving companion.
