Size and Appearance:Chihuahuas are one of the smallest dog breeds. Usually, they weigh between 2 and 6 pounds (0.9-2.7 kg) and stand about 5 to 8 inches (13-20 cm) tall. You will not be able to get enough of those large, expressive eyes set in a rounded head. They look absolutely adorable with erect ears, a small snout, and long or short coats.
Temperament: Chihuahuas are the embodiment of tiny but mighty. These feisty and brave dogs are loyal and lively, and fiercely protective of their owners. They are quite intelligent, but can be stubborn; training will require time and patience. If you are looking for a small dog that packs a punch, you'll fall in love with the Chihuahua.
Exercise and Training: Chihuahuas have moderate exercise needs. They enjoy short walks and playtime, but need much less physical activity than larger breeds. They will be happy to spend time inside a compact flat, playing with their humans and some dog toys.
Health: Chihuahuas live relatively longer than other dog breeds; with proper care, they will be by your side for up to 20 years. Apart from regular check-ups, they need mental stimulation and the companionship of their loved ones.
Care and Maintenance: Chihuahuas are small in size and have thin coats, and not particularly suitable for very low temperatures. They are great apartment dogs and can adapt to various lifestyles. Short-haired Chihuahuas require minimal while long-haired ones need regular brushing to prevent tangles and matting.
Proper care, training, and socialization are important factors in raising a well-adjusted Chihuahua. From us, a premier dog breeder in UK, you will find yourself a wonderful, loyal friend.
