What Is A Chihuahua Like?????
The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog in the world.
A native of Mexico and named after a Mexican province, the
Chihuahua comes in two coat types - The Smooth Coated
Chihuahua and the Long Coated Chihuahua. Surprisingly
enough, this tiny dog will not hesitate to pick a fight
with a larger breed, preferring other Chihuahuas to dogs of
any other breed. Not particularly tolerant or cold weather
or unruly children, the Chihuahua requires some special
care in raising it.
A lively, courageous toy dog, this is sometimes an aggressive
breed due to its willingness to take offense
quickly with other animals. Chihuahuas are a good pet
and watchdog in an apartment,
Chihuahuas require care in winter as they
are very susceptible to the cold.
Height 6" - 9" tall at the shoulder
Weight Maximum 6 lbs
Coat Smooth - Soft, short and glossy
Long - Soft, lies flat with an undercoat,not like a
pomeranian which stands up.

a german shepherd dog

Body Small, well sprung ribs

What To Look For In a Chihuahua
Chihuahuas Come in "Any color, solid, marked or spashed". This is what makes every chihuahua litter exciting! One never knows what colors will pop up! Thats why it is difficult to order a specific colorwhen seeking a chihuahua. Here are the colors listing with AKC but there are many more combinations that exist!If your chihuahua is a rare color many times the breeder will have to get a special color code from akc. Long coat(and sometimes smooth) chihuahuas change colors so much as babies that the color might not be accurately recorded if they are registered under 6 months!
