Originating in Mexico, the Chihuahua is a social, fun-loving and energetic breed whose personality is ten times bigger than his physical size. Usually weighing less than 6 pounds, Chihuahuas make up for their small size with larger than life personalities.
The Chihuahua comes in a multitude of colors and his coat can be long or short in length. Since the Chihuahua is a small breed, they may need to be protected in cold climates.
Chihuahuas may be feisty in nature, but they don’t need great amounts of exercise to stay healthy. The usual daily walks and indoor play will suffice for Chihuahuas who are happy to just be in the same room as their owners. Chihuahuas are also good with children so long as the kids are gentle with them.
This intelligent, loyal breed of dog is perfect for those who live in the city and don’t have as much space for larger dogs to move around. When you choose a Chihuahua as your pup pal, you will not be disappointed with this selection.
