19 Chihuahua Facts So Interesting You’ll Say, “OMG!”

Bold, intelligent, and confident, the Chihuahua is an explosive mix for a small dog and the smallest in existence at that. Rules have to be laid down explicitly and obedience has to be painstakingly trained. It is advisable to start consistent training as early as possible. Dog owners shouldn’t lose themselves in the sweet face that this breed of dog exhibits, especially as a puppy. Consistency is always required, otherwise, the dog will exploit it mercilessly.

In return, the Chihuahua will do anything for its human if the human is attached to it. The Chi wants to be present everywhere and to be the center of attention. His upbringing requires consistency and empathy, the little Mexican withdraws his affection from his loved one just as quickly as he gave it to him before. Not forever, but he starts a game with his caregiver. The Chihuahua must give the Chihuahua a clear, unmistakable direction right from the start.

#1 Is the Chihuahua a family dog?

Conditionally yes. He needs a single caregiver in the family and he is not really a children's dog. The children have to know exactly how to handle the little dwarf.

#2 There are two different types of fur in this dog breed, short and long fur. The physical constitution does not differentiate between long-haired and short-haired variants.

The Chi weighs between 1.5 and 3 kilograms with an average height of 20 centimeters. All dogs that are smaller and weigh less than 1.5 kilograms count as torture breeding. This means that external characteristics are bred that cause the dog health damage. The smallest dog doesn't have to be made any smaller either, he's a fan favorite anyway.

#3 Anyone who has ever had or has a Chihuahua often finds other dogs boring.

Life with the little dwarf is an experience every day. Clever ideas, but also nonsense, mature in Chi's head, which is shaped like an apple and hangs by two large, erect ears. He confidently carries his tail over his back and "fashion" is what pleases. The coat can be brown and white, black and white, red and white, or tricolor, all colors are allowed by the breed standard. Protruding, dark round eyes complete the overall picture.
