Overview
The Chihuahua is the smallest of all breeds and has the distinction of being the oldest breed in America. They were named after the Chihuahua region in Mexico. It is believed that this breed descended from ancient breed that was larger in size and highly prized by Aztec royalty. The Chihuahua of today has a very fine bone structure, but are actually quite muscular.
Character
The Chihuahua is a very individualistic breed. They each have their own unique personality, so only a few generalizations can be made. They are commonly referred to as a "Chi". They are energetic, graceful, and display a human-like expression. Their life span is the longest of any size dog.

Does your Chihuahua bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Chihuahua is deeply devoted and fiercely loyal. They typically become extremely attached to one or two people. They are bold, fearless, and highly protective of their masters. They thrive on inordinate amounts of attention. The Chihuahua is by nature gentle, loving, and sweet-tempered. They are wary of strangers and make excellent watchdogs. This breed is not well suited for children or other pets. However, they are sociable with their own kind. Chihuahuas are excellent companions in the right circumstances.
Care
The Chihuahua requires minimal grooming. The Smooth coat variety requires only occasional brushing. The Long coat variety should be brushed several times a week with a soft bristle brush. Both varieties only need bathing once a month using a mild shampoo. Special care must be given to not get water into their ears as they are prone to ear infections. Dental hygiene is a must to prevent tooth loss. The health issues that affect this breed include slipped stifles, open font or soft spot, eye problems, and heart disease. The Chihuahua does not tolerate cold climates and must be protected when taken outside.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Chihuahua coat comes in two varieties: The Smooth and Long coat. The Smooth coat has a glossy, soft, and close coat which is full textured over the entire body, but quite scanty on the head and ears. The Long coat has a soft, longer coat that can be slightly curly or flat. This variety does have an under-coat. Either coat type comes in a variety of colors such as fawn, brown, black, and white. The coat may be solid in color, marked with splashes of color, or tri-color. They are an average shedder.
Training
The Chihuahua can be difficult to train, but with patience, love, and consistency do well. They respond best to positive reinforcement. Chihuahuas can be housetrained by either the crate method or the paper training method. Early, extensive, and intensive socialization is an absolute must for this breed. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Chihuahua puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Chihuahua is an excellent apartment or condominium dweller. The majority of their exercise needs can be met indoors with toys or play sessions. However, they greatly enjoy going with their owners and benefit from daily walks. Using a harness is recommended instead of a leash is best given their delicate neck and bone structure. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How come Chihuahuas heads are all different shapes and some Chihuahua pups have big bug eyes?

The Chihuahua breed can come with different head shapes, as there is a big difference between confirmation show quality Chihuahua's and pet quality Chihuahua's now a days. The confirmation show quality Chihuahua and kennel club standard says that the Chihuahua breed must have a round, apple shaped head. While some breeders have bred away that head shape so that it is easier on the dam to give birth. Sometimes the eyes of the Chihuahua can be bigger than the skull and seem like they are bulging out because the skull is more rounded and apple shaped and/or there are different head shapes in the pedigree of the dog.

What is wrong when a new Chihuahua puppy has blood in its stool?

No matter the age of the dog, if there is blood in the stool, it is time for the vet. This could be something such as easily treatable as coccidiosis or even the Parvo virus which can be fatal. Please get your dog into the vet a.s.a.p.

Is there anything I can do if my Chihuahua mated with another breed other than another Chihuahua? If she has only been in heat for a week can she still get pregnant?

On average a dog will be in heat for 3 weeks, however, it can be longer or shorter. The first stage of heat, in which the dog is actively bleeding will last 3 - 10 days, the second stage, in which the bleeding will stop and she will excrete a clear or pink mucus will last 3 - 7 days (this is the time she can get pregnant) and the last stage, in which she could bleed again, or not but her vulva remains enlarged can last 3 - 10 days.

Some heats have lasted 45 days, but that is very rare. If your dog has mated, in which a tie has happened (meaning that the male dog has become attached to the female, ie: tied) then pregnancy is most likely going to happen. If you do not wish for your dog to have puppies which you'll have to put up for sale or for adoption, then an emergency spay or E-Spay needs to happen. Consult your Vet as to the next opening he has for a surgery so you can get the E-Spay done ASAP. Please note, that if an E-Spay does happen, then your dog will be spayed and she can no longer have puppies in the future.

My 4-year-old baby girl Chihuahua just had her first litter and she had 5. However, one passed away 3 days after birth. Is that considered a large litter for her first litter of puppies? She and the dad of the puppies are both long hair. She weighs 5.2lbs and he weighs around 5.5-5.8lbs. She had 3 normal coloured babies and one completely light grey one. I have never seen a 100% grey Chihuahua before. Is this normal? Also, I am selling the puppies and have no idea what to sell my grey one for if it's rare. Also, the parents are both registered and the grey one is a female. Please help me. And I am fixing her. I just decided to breed her this one time. I could use all the help I can get. I appreciate the help.

A Chihuahua's average litter size is 3 - 5 puppies, so 5 is considered normal to large for the size of the dog. I am sorry you lost a puppy, but unless you take the puppy to a vet for a necropsy, no one will know why the puppy passed away. But most likely it was Fading Puppy Syndrome. Grey puppies can happen, though you are right as it is not common. If you are registering the litter, then the puppies can be sold between $500.00 - $750.00. But if you aren't going to register the litter of puppies, then you should sell them for what it would cost for an average spay/neuter (between $150.00 - $250.00). This gives you the knowledge that the new puppy owner can afford a spay/neuter and you know they are going to a good home.

'Grey' is not a Chi color - the color you are describing is most likely blue and yes it is normal, it just depends on what parents coat colors have in their lines.
