Chihuahua Dog Breed Information: 14 Facts and Tips About This Popular Breed

The history of the Chihuahua is uncertain. The dog is named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua, where the dog was discovered about 1850. Some experts think the Aztecs or Incas developed the dog; others say the breed can be traced to Spanish dogs as far back as the 1500s. The use of the Chihuahua long ago also is uncertain.

1. Basic Chihuahua Size

The average weight for a Chihuahua in perfect health is 5 pounds (2.3 kg), although many specimens weigh under 3 pounds (1.4 kg). Their coat varies in color from black to chocolate, though the chocolate variety is the most common. There are two color mutations. In the Gran-Zeta stripe, the coat is yellow with a red-orange strip down the center of the dog’s back and a dark line down the middle of the neck. This variety is slightly longer, the height of the back and slightly shorter in height than the standard Chihuahua. The two colors also have slight variations in face markings, one having a splash of white on its chin and one that has black around the eyes. Both of these varieties have blue eyes.

2. Basic Chihuahua Appearance

The Chihuahua is an active breed and there are few health issues. The Chihuahua may be light in color but most Chihuahuas are either brown or black with tan markings. A very few red, blue or yellow Chihuahuas are available. If the shade of red or blue does not blend with the body of the dog, the color may be aborted or stained after the puppy is born. Basic Chihuahua Health Issues Chihuahua puppies are born without mouths and with hair covering their eyes. After this, puppies are placed in an artificial mouth and can be taught to use it. As the dog grows, the teeth may be filed down so the Chihuahua does not have to work against its jaws. Chihuahuas have allergies to several foods, including carrots, corn and soy.

3. Basic Chihuahua Temperament

The Chihuahua is a lap dog. This breed is affectionate and will follow you around the house. Chihuahuas are also sociable dogs. They make good family pets and can do well as only children pets. They are excellent runners, and because of this, they must be placed in a household with plenty of room. Chihuahuas are happy and playful and, despite their small size, are very stubborn. They need a strong, reliable owner who will stand up for the breed and expect obedience and well-behaved pets. Chihuahuas need a lot of exercise to burn off excess energy. Chihuahuas are very good lap dogs, but not good show dogs because they have a difficult time standing and sitting still. They also are not suited for long-distance travel. Their length is their down side.

4. Basic Chihuahua Health Concerns

Eating Cheese Keeping Your Dog Active Discontinue feeding soft cheese because it will cause the stomach to become enlarged. Instead, hard cheeses or firm cheeses that are chopped with meals are good for a growing puppy. Make sure your puppy receives adequate exercise for health. Avoid providing exercise in the early stages of your puppy’s life. Your dog may be more active and learn faster if he is able to stay off the furniture, keep moving and have some room to run around. Check with your vet to see if your puppy can have access to the apartment complex’s yard. The exercise may be appropriate for dogs over seven weeks old. It is especially important that a puppy, like the Chihuahua, develops a proper bowel routine early on. For more information about your pup’s poo, visit this link.

5. Basic Chihuahua History

Chihuahuas are an original dog, but most of them descend from dogs brought to the Southwest and Southern United States by Spanish colonists. Mexican dogs are native to the country and were occasionally given as gifts to the Spanish by the Aztecs. Among these, the breed most likely to have survived is the Ariege, which is a smaller, terrier-type dog. One other, more widely used breed is the chihuahua papillon, which is a slightly smaller variant of the Chihuahua. The smaller chihuahua is the one most people are familiar with. Most of the dogs used in Mexico as guard dogs were brought to the United States by Mexican immigrants. These dogs lived with the Mexicans and became an important part of the culture of the southwest. One of the most common way these dogs were used was as a guard dog.

6. Basic Chihuahua Exercise

Chihuahuas are very fast breed dogs. They need to be worked on a regular basis to keep up their stamina and have enough energy to get around and play with the rest of the family. Your little Chihuahua will grow up to become a big dog. Chihuahuas are known for their intelligence, trainability, and playfulness. Training and exercising your dog should be a major part of your daily routine. Training exercises can include ball throwing, hiking, frisbee, etc. When working with your Chihuahua, keep in mind that there are two basic forms of exercise for dogs. The first form is loose-dog play. The second form is hard-collar exercise. This article will focus on the hard-collar exercise, which is generally considered a good training method. Chihuahuas love to play.


7. Basic Chihuahua Care

Cotton, wool or synthetic blends for coats Water and food dish should be kept bone-dry During cooler months, the Chihuahua can be left out without fear of getting ice-cold paws. Chihuahuas also don’t need a fire to keep warm. Upkeep Chihuahuas have a very short life expectancy; about 12 to 15 years for males, and about 12 to 15 years for females. Because of their long life, they should not be kept as pets unless you really love them. Breed Problems Condition The Chihuahua is one of the smaller of the dog breeds; the average weight is about 9 pounds. And their feet are of course small and dainty. You will need to get a vet to diagnose any issues that may arise in the breed.

8. Basic Chihuahua Training

Chihuahuas are very energetic, and can become destructive and even unmanageable. This dog is used to being the center of attention, not only at home, but also at a dog park or on the beach. The Chihuahua is good at just about anything you ask it to do, even as a house pet. Since these dogs are bred to have long, floppy ears, you can train them to respond to you by whistling, or by doing a simple trick, like putting their ears back, and then clicking your teeth together. Many things you can do with a Chihuahua include Dog Agility. They love to run, jump and play. The typical Chihuahua has a well-developed brain, and would be a good candidate for the Agility Program. Catch and Release. To get a dog used to being caught, first let it have free run of the backyard.


9. Basic Chihuahua Nutrition

Puppies need 24-hour care and lots of attention to maintain their weight until they’re about 4 months old. Young puppies need plenty of feedings and special snacks. Puppies that are fed table food should be moved frequently to avoid digestive upset. Use good quality food, free of corn or wheat, and available at stores that carry pet food. Puppies eat small amounts of dry kibble each time they eat. If given too much kibble at once, or more than one time in a row, the puppy can choke and become lethargic. There is no cause for concern if the puppy has a mild upper respiratory infection. How to Feed a Puppy Smaller puppies begin eating with a spoon, but over time they learn to eat straight from the dish.
