Chihuahua



Introduction

Do you want a portable dog? Then you might want to get a Chihuahua!

 

History

The Chihuahua originated in Mexico and were even claimed to be companion dogs to ancient Aztecs.

There is no clear history of how the breed came about. One thing’s for sure though, the size of Chihuahuas continues to decrease as breeders choose to breed Chihuahuas for their tiny size.

 

Appearance

Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dog in the whole world. When they first come out in this world, two or more puppies can fit comfortably in the palm of your hand.

There are two types of Chihuahuas, the smooth coat variety and the Long Coat variety.

Chihuahuas have many varieties in coat colour and it does not affect the breed standard.

Because Chihuahuas are tiny, they appear to be weak or fragile. So care should be given while they’re still puppies to avoid any broken bones and other complications.

Chihuahuas also have very big eyes that look ready to pop out of their sockets when they are excited. 

  

Temperament

Chihuahuas may be small but they can still deliver a powerful bite. In fact, these little dogs are notorious for being aggressive and fiercely territorial. They can become overly attached to one person and will attack other people for no reason at all if they get too close.

They don’t mix well with other dog breeds and will refer the company of another Chihuahua over any other species. Socializing your puppy early on is the key to having a great Chihuahua adult in the future.

Although this breed is not a first choice as a family pet, they can become really great additions if they are socialized properly.

 

Health and Care

Surprisingly, Chihuahuas have very little genetic defects.

They do have weak teeth so dental care must be given regularly to prevent premature loss of teeth.

The thing that truly affects Chihuahuas is a genetic defect that affects their heads. Chihuahuas can suffer from hydrocephalus which can be lethal if not attended to immediately.

They can also suffer from an incomplete skull formation which makes them the only dog breed to have this unique condition.
