The Chihuahua originated in Mexico and was bred to be a companion to people. They were named after the Mexican state 'Chihuahua' and are classified as the smallest dog of the entire canine species! The size of these dogs are what makes them popular as they weigh a maximum of 6 lbs where the smaller this dog is, will be considered more sought after.

This breed is small, fine boned and delicate yet has a tough attitude and personality. They have a round head, large triangular ears that are pointed upwards and a long, thin muzzle. The Chihuahua's body is compact and their tail is slender and long. During the colder months, they will need a doggie coat when going outside because they have such thin fur that this will offer them no protection!

The Chihuahua is an extremely faithful dog, they trust 1 person and that is their owner. They will not make the best family dog as they tend to be snappy towards children especially if bothered or provoked. They have been known to be dog aggressive but this is due to their incredibly small size in comparison to the average sized dog!
