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.

 

10. Basic Chihuahua Diseases and Conditions

Dog Facts about the Chihuahua Fully grown Chihuahuas stand about 18 to 25 inches at the shoulder and usually weigh 5 to 10 pounds. Chihuahuas can range in color from black and brown to tan and white, but they are almost always black. Chihuahuas are smart, energetic, and playful. They need exercise daily, and they are not good pets for very young children. Chihuahuas also require a low-stress environment. If you are looking to adopt a Chihuahua, ask about the length of the dog’s home stay. Adoptable Chihuahuas for Adopters There are about 10,000 Chihuahuas in animal shelters and pounds across the nation. A dog can have many health problems if it has never been socialized or it was left outside in the backyard too long.

 

11. Basic Chihuahua AKC and UKC Standards

Chihuahua puppies come in various sizes and colors, including black, golden, tri-colored, bicolor, brindle and red/brown. Although not all puppies have the same features, they do share certain important traits: Chihuahua puppies should have short, neat pups. The nose of the puppy should be narrow. These are the coat traits of a Chihuahua: White: Unless the pup is of pure white coat, the gray coat is acceptable. To pass as a black, tri-color, or bicolor, you must have a body that is one inch longer than the height of the white markings on the head. Blue: Although most blues are based on solid colors, some blue-base Chihuahuas come with a solid, light blue back or chest area. This can be a dominant color, and should be considered if you have a color puppy with blue eyes.

 

12. Basic Chihuahua History

The Chihuahua is one of the smallest breeds of dog, with small stature and a short coat of soft, silky fur. As the third largest of all dog breeds, the Chihuahua’s body is rectangular and the muzzle short and squat. This breed is usually short-legged. They weigh between 6 and 12 pounds. The Chihuahua’s coat comes in two basic colors: black and tan. Both are very soft and long-lasting, making this a great dog for outdoor play. The black coat color is long and loose with a contrasting white strip along the belly. The tan coat is more dense and soft. Both dogs come in several solid or solid/cream colored variations. The Chihuahua is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, due in part to its similarity to the many other smaller dogs that are popular in other countries.

13. Basic Chihuahua Price

Chihuahua puppies can cost anywhere from $200 to $600, depending on where you buy them and what the quality of the breed is like. The average price of a Chihuahua today is about $500. The difference between a good puppy and a poor one can be many hundreds of dollars. For instance, sometimes puppies are shipped from China with a few seconds of health care before being slaughtered. These puppies are not perfectly healthy, and the medical care given before and after they ship are rudimentary. Related: Chihuahuas for Dog Lovers Other popular breeds of dog that go for $300 to $600 include the Jack Russell Terrier and the Beagle. The Chihuahua’s name is difficult to spell. The word is spelled Chihuahua but spelled Chiweenie, Chivo and Chiwachicha.

14. Basic Chihuahua Puppies for Sale

As the Chihuahua continues to gain popularity, many people wonder what goes into raising a Chihuahua puppy. With a few common-sense practices, you can create a special pup who will become your family’s best friend. Below are some of the top-notch suggestions that will help you find a puppy who will fit into your family and your home. What to Look for in a Chihuahua Puppy for Sale The first thing you should do is call your local animal shelter. If your dog is a tiny puppy, there are chances that someone just gave him or her away. Local shelters often run sales when they need to get rid of pets, and the puppies can be sold for very little money. Take a look at any available puppies at your local shelter and see what type of breed is in the litter. A chihuahua can reach a length of approximately 10 inches to 15 inches at the shoulder. Chihuahuas are among the most popular breeds of dog. Even with their small size, they can act as guard dogs or act as therapy dogs for children. The Chihuahua comes in three colors: red, yellow and black.
