The Ultimate Chihuahua Guide

About Chihuahua

Often a one-person dog, Chihuahuas are one of the most dynamic breeds of dogs. Their one quest in life is to receive unconditional love in the same measure that they give.

Chihuahuas are also fiercely loyal and brave. These are gigantic Alaskan Malamutes or Mastiffs bundled up in a tiny body.

Chihuahuas require minimal grooming to maintain their coat health.

Origins

The origins of the Chihuahua breed have been a topic of speculation among historians.

Many believe that these dogs originated from the state of Chihuahua, in Mexico during the 1800s.

Initially, they were not given a name but were identified based on their geographical locations.

The Chihuahua dog, known by names like the Arizona dog, Mexico dog and Texas dog, eventually settled with the name Chihuahua that has endured over time.

Experts in history and canine enthusiasts suggest that Chihuahuas originated from the Techichi, a small sized dog that was domesticated by the Toltecs civilization.

The Toltecs took it upon themselves to refine the Techichi breed by crossbreeding it with the Perro Chihuahueno, a breed in the Chihuahua mountains. This breeding resulted in what we recognise as the modern day Chihuahua.

There is a theory regarding the lineage of Chihuahuas. Some speculate that when explorers came to the New World, they mixed the Techichi with a hairless dog giving rise to today’s version of the Chihuahua.

Key Characteristics Of Chihuahuas

Are Chihuahuas Family-Friendly?

While these dogs can be friendly with families, they are also delicate. They tend to be wary of strangers. It’s advisable for children to be supervised when interacting with them.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Chihuahuas may suffer from:

Injury

Patellar luxation

Dental issues

Hypoglycaemia

Heart murmurs

Hip dysplasia

Nature / Temperament

Loving, companionable, alert and brave.

Suitable Environment

Chihuahuas thrive in warm environments and are well-suited for apartment living as long as they receive adequate exercise, attention, and are protected from the cold.

Other Considerations

  1. Two main varieties of Chihuahuas exist: short-haired and long-haired.
  2. There are ‘deer head’ and ‘apple head’ Chihuahuas.
  3. The apple head have apple-shaped skulls and more prominent eyes.
  4. Deer head Chihuahuas have facial features that look like a young deer. These include long muzzle and ears, longer legs and flat-topped heads.
  5. Dental crowding is a health risk for Chihuahuas. To prevent dental problems, their diet should not have excess sugar or carbohydrates.
  6. Chihuahuas are sensitive to cold. Therefore, they should be kept warm always.

How can I take good care of my Chihuahua?

Nutrition

Adult Chihuahuas should be fed approximately twice a day and the puppies about 4 times. They are approximately a quarter to half a cup of high-quality dog food. Being a toy breed, they don’t eat a lot.

Grooming

Shorthaired Chihuahuas shed less compared to the long haired ones so their fur requires less upkeep. Brushing them once a week should do the trick.

For long haired Chihuahuas, it’s recommended to brush their fur at least thrice a week. Regular grooming reduces the need for baths.

Exercise

Chihuahuas like to mirror the activities of their owners. So if you’re a homebody, they’ll likely follow suit.

Nevertheless, it’s important not to overlook exercising your friend. Around 20 – 30 minutes of exercise is usually sufficient. You can opt for one longer walk or two shorter walks, throughout the day. If it’s too chilly outside, engage them in indoor activities instead.

Training

Chihuahuas are quick learners but also possess strong will and independent traits.

When you’re teaching them, it’s best to focus on positive reinforcement. Give them praise and treats as rewards when they do something correctly.

Most Asked Chihuahua Questions

There is only one breed of Chihuahua. However, these dogs come in main types of coats: long-coat and smooth-coat.

Smooth coat Chihuahuas can be identified with shorter hairs. These dogs also shed less than their long-haired counterparts.

The long-haired Chihuahuas have longer, velvety hair that is very soft to touch. Because of the longer hair, they need more frequent grooming.

Unfortunately, Chihuahuas are mainly not the kind of dogs you can bring to a home with other pets. They get along well with their own kind/breed. But this is where their tolerance ends. If there are other kinds of dogs or pets, there’s likely to be fights between them.

This is not to mean that it’s impossible for Chihuahuas to live peacefully with other pets. To achieve this, try introducing the pets when they are both young. This way, they can grow up with each other.

The other option for pet lovers is to get a second Chihuahua as opposed to getting another dog breed.

Chihuahuas have a pretty long lifespan, up to 18 years. In fact, these dogs are more vulnerable to injuries than illnesses.

Chihuahuas for sale cost between $500 to $3000 approximately.
