I have laughed out loud more since my Chihuahua arrived than I have in a long time. He loves to play with the cat and hang by the pool with the grandchildren. He loves going anywhere I take him and he is a very sweet little guy socially.
A Chihuahua can easily be summed up as a tiny dog with a huge personality. Typically standing between 5-8 inches and rarely weighing more than six pounds, these dogs share little in common with their bigger ancestors apart from their big-dog attitude. Their compact size makes them ideal for living in apartments or other small spaces.
Chihuahuas are considered a national symbol of Mexico and are one of the oldest breeds of the Americas. While the AKC did not recognize the Chihuahua as an official breed until 1904, there is documentation of them being raised by the Aztecs in the early 16th century. Standing between 6-9 inches for the standard breed and 4-6 for the Teacup variety, Chihuahuas come in many different sizes and colors, and in both longhair and shorthair varieties. Chihuahuas are typically light to moderate shedders, but the shedding lasts all year.
Surprisingly, these dogs are a top watchdog candidate due to their extreme loyalty and territorial personalities. They may not have much bite, but the bark is often enough to scare away potential intruders. Their loyalty also makes them a great choice for first-time pet owners, just makes sure that children know to play gently with such a small dog.
Those in the market for a Chihuahua should be aware of the time commitment; Chihuahuas have some of the longest lifespans in the canine world, most living between 10-18 years. Relatively speaking, Chihuahuas don't need much exercise, and 30 minutes a day should be plenty to keep these dogs happy and healthy. Chihuahuas are also capable of competing in dog sporting events, such as agility and obedience competitions.
