Welcome

Chihuahuas are also known as “pocket pets” or “purse dogs” if you will. These tiny canines are the oldest breed in the American continent and the smallest dogs in the world. Arguably, their most prominent character trait is the proportion of their bark to their bite. Even Chihuahua puppies are as feisty as they come. They will bark endlessly at anything that they believe could threaten their own safety or of the people they love – even dogs that are many times bigger than them. If this loving breed has piqued your attention, we can connect you with one of the Chihuahua breeders and help you find the best companion for you.


Find Chihuahua Puppies for Sale

Adopting a puppy is not as simple as it may seem. You cannot rely purely on instinct or automatically pick the first Chihuahua for sale that you come across with; there is a lot more to consider than that. Not all breeders put up healthy Chihuahua puppies for sale. It will take a lot of time and effort to find good breeders and compatible pups.

We are here to make things easier for you. With our long list of quality breeders and our expertise in dog breeds, we can help you find Chihuahua puppies that are not only well cared for but with personalities that complement your own. Think of it as a match made in heaven.


Breed Summary

While Chihuahuas enjoy their reign as the smallest dog breed in the world, often nestled in especially made purses, they enjoy spending time with their human companions more. They will stick to you like glue. Most Chihuahua owners find this trait endearing, especially after seeing their apple-shaped heads, disproportionally large ears, and big, round eyes. But don’t let their simpleminded nature fool you. Chihuahua dog breed info sites often describe this pooch as very intelligent – more so than the size of their brain implies.

Perhaps the most intriguing Chihuahua characteristic is their bravery, which is conceivably a compensatory mechanism for their size. They will get all yappy when faced with potentially threatening situations and can snap if cornered. But it’s nothing that a little training and discipline won’t fix.

This is not all that there is to know about this breed. Additional information could be found in the “Facts and Information” section of this site.


Perfect Matched Breed

If you have found yourself smitten with the sassy yet loving Chihuahua, adoption is just a few steps away. You don’t have to trouble yourself with all the excruciating details that come with the search for quality Chihuahua breeders – we will do that for you.

With our deep-rooted understanding and know-how on these precious pooches, we will find for you the perfectly matched Chihuahua puppies. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Just read the “Happy Puppy Placement” segment of this site for more details on the process. We will make sure that your lifetime commitment with your pup will end in a ‘happily ever after.’


Facts - Overview

One of the most popular and ever beloved canines, according to American Kennel Club polls, is the Chihuahua dog breed. They have consistently been ranked as part of the top 20 most popular breeds in the world, currently reigning at 13th place. Their main appeal lies in their teensy frame marked by oversized, erect ears and big, dark, round eyes that look at you with endearment.

The demand for Chihuahuas considerably rose after a popular Taco Bell ad campaign featuring a dog of this breed. This demand was amplified when many high-profile personalities have been spotted sporting these dogs in designer bags. These were the events that introduced the Chihuahua to the Barbie-esque lifestyle where you can brush his hair and dress him anywhere – a lifestyle that this breed does not mind having.

Chihuahuas do not pose many demands; they are easy to care for, have small appetites, are portable, and do not require a lot of exercise. Yes, they are the perfect indoor pets. Their only big demand is a huge chunk of your attention; these dogs often seek your company. No matter where you are – be it the bedroom, kitchen or even the bathroom, you should expect to find your pup nearby. If you don’t mind acquiring an extra body part – specifically, your very own tail, then this breed is perfect for you.

Perhaps the most important Chihuahua breed info you need to know is their big dog attitude. This breed knows no fear; they are self-designated protectors of the home and the people living in it. Whenever they see strangers enter into their territory, they will bark at them. When other animals – even those that tower above them – approach these pooches, they get all yappy. When Chihuahuas or the people they love are faced with what they perceive as a potentially threatening situation, they will – as you have guessed – bark and bear their teeth. Yes, this adorable canine has the soul of a big and brawny dog that stands 2 feet tall. How that managed to fit in a tiny, 6-9-inch-tall ball of fur remains a mystery. This is why Chihuahuas should be exposed to different people and animals early on.

Chihuahuas may be toy dogs, but they are not to be played with. Due to their courageous and defensive nature, they will growl – and at times, snap – when threatened or hurt, albeit unintentionally. Children should be taught to handle these pups gently to prevent such behaviors from arising. It is all a matter of reciprocity.

The Chihuahua is a force to be reckoned with. Despite its small frame and shadow-like behavior, it acts like a big dog with a very big heart. Although the Chihuahua personality could greatly vary from canine to canine, there are still distinct characteristics that remain true to all dogs of the breed:

Intelligent: This breed is known to be very smart. If they are presented with a structured environment and a consistent set of rules, they will be able to learn new tricks effectively.

Loyal: All dogs are known to be loyal to their owners, but Chihuahuas are especially steadfast in their devotion and love. Usually, these pups pick a favorite person in the house and will stick with them no matter what - sometimes to an obsessive extent. Of course, with an equal distribution of love and attention from their owners, all members of the family will most likely be their favorites.

Protective: While Chihuahuas do not even measure up to a 12-inch ruler, they are compelled with the need to protect what is precious to them. No matter how big their foe is, they will bare their teeth and fight back to defend themselves and the ones they love.

Lively: There will never be a dull moment with an awake and alert Chihuahua around. With their penchant for causing mischief and their ever energetic nature, these dogs tend to be the center of attention and will provide a good show for you.

Affectionate: Most Chihuahua owners would agree that the pinnacle of the Chihuahua temperament is their overflowing affection. These dogs will follow you wherever you go and will sit on your lap whenever they get the chance. They don’t even mind getting dressed up in the most ridiculous outfits as long as they are getting their daily dose of attention.


Facts - Care

The basics of Chihuahua care include exercise and discipline. These are imperative for your dog’s health and happiness. Since these dogs are the indoor type, they won’t need a great deal of vigorous activity. Just make sure to walk them at least once a day to prevent obesity.

Chihuahuas are commonly misconceived as hard to train. However, this false impression is largely influenced by human error. A lot of dog owners think that because this breed is so small and seemingly harmless, they do not need to undergo training, which is one of the biggest mistakes all dog owners make. No matter how small or docile the canine is, he must be trained to instill discipline and facilitate proper behavior. In fact, Chihuahuas are highly intelligent critters that take well to instruction.

It must be noted that the ease of Chihuahua training depends upon the dog’s individual personality and family background. If the dog’s parents are lax and friendly, he will also present similar behaviors. If he comes from a majorly temperamental lineage, expect this dog to exhibit these qualities as well. This is why finding the right breeder is important.

Regardless of the pooch’s individual behavior, the training regimen should always include positive reinforcement and food rewards. Never treat your dog harshly as this will make them develop destructive behaviors.

The only problem about these dogs is their refusal to relieve themselves during cold or rainy weather. This is why Chihuahua puppy care should begin with house training. Some owners prefer to use indoor grass patches and litter boxes to address this problem.


Facts - Grooming

Appearance

Toy dogs are typically petite. The Chihuahua, in particular, possesses a stocky body that is supported by short, slim legs. This is topped with a large, apple-shaped head and a pointy snout. On either side of the head rest large, perky ears that defy gravity. These are complemented by similarly large, round eyes that should be very dark in color. Although some brown or white-furred pups may have light colored eyes.

The measurement of their length should be slightly greater than their height and their tail ought to arc towards the front.

Coat and Color

Chihuahuas have two types of coats: short and long. The short-haired variety usually comes with a smooth, glossy coat that lies flat on its skin. The long-haired kind, on the other hand, can sport either straight or curly locks that should also be smooth to touch. There is a thicker concentration of hair around the tail and neck area, but thinner fur grows on the ears and head.

Their coat comes in a wide variety of colors, namely chestnut, silver, fawn, blue, sand, white, gray, solid black, chocolate, tricolor, spotted merle, brindle, or any combination of colors.

Size and Weight

The tiniest dog in the world only stands at around 6-9 inches tall and weighs between 2-6 pounds. Some of these dogs are so small that they are capable of standing erect on the palm of your hand.

Grooming Needs

Many dog owners do not know how to groom Chihuahua breeds, especially the long haired variety. This uncertainty is probably influenced by the “purse pooch” reputation these dogs have and their inclination to the glamorous lifestyle. What many don’t know is that Chihuahua grooming requirements are only minimal – both for the long and short-haired kind. These dogs only need to be bathed 6 times a year – that is once every 2 months. But their teeth need to be brushed on a weekly basis as this breed is susceptible to dental problems.

Chihuahuas shed their fur all year round. Brushing their coat once a week with a soft-bristled brush should remove loose hair and keep their coats shiny and healthy.

Tear stains are often found on the Chihuahua’s eyes. Use hypoallergenic baby wipes to wipe these off.

Keep the ears clean by gently wiping the outer portion with a cotton ball. This should be dampened with a liquid solution prescribed by a veterinarian. Avoid using cotton buds as they will push the earwax further into the ear canal. 


Facts - Health

Chihuahuas have a long life span, averaging at 15 years. Sometimes, they may even exceed this estimate. But in order for them to live a full and healthy life, you must pay attention to Chihuahua nutrition. It is especially important as this breed is as delicate as they are small.

The most common health problems these dogs face involve their teeth. Because they have small mouths, there is not enough space for their teeth to develop properly. Some dogs may need to have a tooth or two pulled out to prevent them from becoming impacted and allow them to develop properly. Moreover, their large, slightly bulging eyes are prone to physical injury. Always keep a watchful eye on your dogs and keep them in a safe and structured environment.

Most dog owners feed their pup to obesity, which is dangerous for Chihuahua health. Be sure to regulate the amount of food these dogs eat. Their tiny digestive systems can only contain a small amount of food. But do not feed them too little food either as this breed is also susceptible to hypoglycemia (abnormally low blood sugar levels). Consult a veterinarian to know the right amount of food you should feed your dog.

Also, Chihuahuas tend to get cold easily. Make sure to keep your dog warm at all times – especially during rainy weather.

Timely visits to the veterinarian and properly timed vaccinations are essential for all dog breeds. Take good care of your Chihuahua and it will reach – or even exceed – his maximum life span.


Facts - History

The history of Chihuahua breeds is veiled in mystery. What we know about these peewee pooches is that they have been named after the boundary between New Mexico and Texas. What we do not know for sure is their exact origin.

The earliest evidence of canines with frames and appearances much like the modern day Chihuahua was found in ancient artwork and text in various corners of the globe – with the oldest dating back to the 9th century. Most historical records point towards a strong connection between this breed and the Techichi – a hairless canine domesticated by the native Mexican Toltecs. Some claim that it was when the Techichi was bred with a hairless canine from China that the earliest Chihuahuas came to be.

Interestingly, the early Mexicans believed that the Chihuahua’s ancestors were spirit guides that guarded the human soul as it passed through the underworld. This is evidenced by the presence of tiny dog remains in human graves. Even after death, these pooches stood dedicated and brave – at least, that’s what the ancient records say.

Needless to say, the first explicit record that acknowledged the Chihuahua’s existence was in circa 1850 when Mexican merchants were selling these dogs to travelers. And it wasn’t until the year 1904 that these dogs were officially registered in the AKC. It was around this time that this breed enjoyed a quick rise in popularity. Thanks to high profile celebrities, the Chihuahua’s reputation transitioned from a “protector of souls” to a glamorous “purse dog.” It is a true story of doggie rags to riches – a definite mark in Chihuahua history.
