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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Chihuahua puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

How much will my Chihuahua puppy weigh fully grown? How much should I be feeding my her daily?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The average weight of a Chihuahua when full grown is 4 - 6 lbs. As for feeding, it all depends on the brand of food you are feeding your dog. A grain-free diet will enable you to feed your dog less compared to a dog food with grains such as corn and rice in it. Use the bag as a guideline and adjust the amount you feed by if you dog gains weight, looses weight or stays the same.

What does purebred Chihuahua puppy mean? When a breeder advertises a purebred Chihuahua puppy for sale should I also expect the puppy be registered through the AKC or CKC or other recognized breed club?

1 Comment

To answer your question in one word, yes. A purebred dog, no matter the breed should be registered with a Kennel Club, such as the American Kennel Club, the Canadian Kennel Club, The United Kennel Club, ect. If you want a for-sure, purebred dog, then that is what you need to look for when a breed advertises puppies for sale.

I have a marble colored Chihuahua and a brindle male, are these rare?

1 Comment

The AKC standard coloring for a Chihuahua is 'any color or coat pattern'. Which means that any solid, patterned or merle coloring for the dog is fine. However, the brindle and merle coloring for any dog in which it is not the standard is less common. Because it takes both parents to have the specific merle or brindle gene to make a brindle or merle colored puppy. So in truth, yes, your two Chihuahua's are considered a less common coloration for the breed, so you could call it rare.

chihuahua-dachshund mix puppy nutrition needs? Adult characteristics around birds? Puppy nutrition needs and if raised around birds, would they become tolerant of them & gentle?

If a puppy is raised around something such as bird, then normally the dog becomes calm around them because they are used to their noises and movements. But make sure that you make the introductions with the birds slow, comfortable and positive for the puppy. As for food, a grain-free, high quality puppy food will give your pup the best nutrition.

Feeding your dog twice a day gives you the ability to watch your dogs eating habits, as well as decreases the chance of bloat or other stomach issues with eating a lot of food all at once. If you are an active person who loves to train their dog in new things or uses treats to play with your dog, use the food through-out the day. This will teach your dog that food is never free and he/she must listen to you when you ask him/her to do something to get his/her food.

If your chihuahua is a young puppy under 6 months old then you should feed every 3-4 hours. Each serving should be a fraction of their daily ration according to their weight. Puppies 2-4 months old should have a small amount of food left with them where they sleep, but after 4 months old they can go the night without eating.

At our home, we feed our Chihuahua's a homemade raw diet. We supplement with high quality brands of dry food like Nutrisca (potato and grain free), Wysong (starch free), Ziwi Peak (not overcooked like other dry foods). For easy to use remade raw foods try Honest Kitchen, Nutrisa Dinner Bites, Stella and Chewy's raw, or other raw dehydrated or frozen brands. The frozen brands only need to be thawed. The dehydrated varieties just add water until mushy. Your dogs will thank you with vibrant health for feeding them fresh foods!! I have lots of reading on natural health for dogs on my website www.tinychi.com

A Chihuahua's gestational period (pregnancy) is 8 weeks, just like any other breed. Typically, the owner of the father could charge a stud fee or get first pick of the litter. The remaining pups belong to the mother's owner and will be ready for a new home at eight weeks. If the litter consists of only one puppy, it belongs to the male's owner unless there is an agreement between owners to sell the pup and split the proceeds.

How many puppies can a chihuahua have in a litter? My chihuahua is 4 years old and in good health

Litter size depends largely on the size and health of the mother. Anywhere from one to four pups is normal. Very small chihuahua females would have smaller litters and more trouble giving birth.
