  • Overview

  • Charming, graceful and sassy, the Chihuahua is the smallest breed in the world and sport a personality much larger than themselves. Chihuahuas are energetic, lively and small enough to get their exercise simply by running around your home.

    They enjoy short walks and exploring the yard, but what a Chihuahua really loves is to be in its owner's arms. Chihuahuas are fiercely loyal to their families, often growing extremely attached to a single person. They are typically suspicious of strangers and have been known to be snippy with children.

    Chihuahuas are adaptable and can live just about anywhere so long as its inside. Due to their size, Chihuahua are more susceptible to physical injury than larger breeds. Therefore, Chihuahua puppies require extra special care, patience and a lot of love. If you're willing to invest your time and energy into caring for a Chihuahua, then you will have a loving and loyal companion for years to come.

  • Chorkie

    Chorkie is a crossbreed between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Chihuahua, and it was initially bred in the early 1990s. Just like the other mix-breeds, Chorkie’s temperament can uniquely assimilate to its parent’s characteristics. Chorkie has a high energy level, so they require lots of daily exercise and playtime. This breed is intelligent, confident, self-assured, and highly trainable, but can also be stubborn and might refuse to follow the rules, even from his puppyhood. Keeping this breed can turn into a nightmare if you don’t give him proper leadership. Such as Chihuahuas, Chorkies may often feel to bark and alert their pet-parents if they suspect anything unusual. This dog is a good choice for singles or families with older children. The size of the Chorkie is about 6 to 9 inches, and its weight is about 8-10 pounds.

  • Chug

    Chug is a designer crossbreed between the Chihuahua and the Pug and it was originally produced in the USA in the early 2000s. Chug’s personality is like being goofy, running around all the time, or being loyal. This breed is very cuddly and playful but on the other hand it can be very territorial as well. Chug is a great watchdog; he will alert you at any time when he feels something suspicious. This breed doesn’t fit into a family with small children because, due to their tiny size, they can get hurt easily by excited children. With early socialization, Chugs can get along well with other pets if they are introduced to each other calmly and slowly. This silly goofball breed has a high energy level, so make sure they get enough daily walks and playtime. The size of the Chug is about 10 to 14 inches, and its weight is between 10 and 20 pounds.
