Chihuahua Puppies For Sale

Overview

The cute Chihuahua is one of the oldest canine breeds in the Americas and is the national animal of Mexico. Their genealogy may be traced to pre-Columbian ancient kingdoms, and their predecessors are seen in historic paintings in Mexico. The Techichi, regarded as a larger and heavier ancestor of the contemporary Chihuahua, was bred by the Toltecs, who governed Mexico over a thousand years ago.
The Techichi was developed into a smaller, lighter dog by the Aztecs after they defeated the Toltecs. When the Spanish conquistadors overthrew the Aztec civilization in the 1500s, it became regarded as one of Montezuma’s fabled jewels because of how highly esteemed it was in Aztec society. Midway through the 1800s, Americans began to show interest in the breed and discovered several in the State of Chihuahua, which is how the contemporary breed earned its name. In 1908, the AKC registered its first known Chihuahua. Beppie was his name.

Temperament

This canine breed is lively and alert. They are sometimes described as “tiny dogs with a huge personality” and have charming, graceful, sassy personalities. They can also be bold or hesitant. Whether they are bold or shy by temperament, early and frequent socialization guarantees they are self-assured. They typically treat kids and other animals with kindness. However, a Chihuahua with poor socialization and training may experience “small dog syndrome,” which can make them potentially aggressive toward people or other animals and prone to biting or nipping when stressed.

Adaptability

The adorable Chihuahuas can adapt to most situations. They thrive in both homes and apartments. If they receive a lot of care, they can adapt to practically any lifestyle. However, because of their small size, they are not suitable for playing rough with kids. Additionally, because of how sensitive they are to the cold, extra caution must be used when the temperature begins to fall.

Health

The fabulous Chihuahua is an overall healthy dog breed. There are several breed-specific health concerns to be mindful of, just like with any other dog breed. Heart conditions like mitral valve disease and patent ductus arteriosus, patellar luxation, idiopathic epilepsy, and eye conditions are a few of these health problems. Reputable breeding helps to reduce the likelihood of these problems since it makes sure puppies are as genetically sound as possible. Concerns about these health problems might be allayed by asking the breeder about the genetic background of the parents and asking to see any pertinent health testing.

Grooming

Such a breed of Chihuahua has either a long, fine, glossy coat that is close to the skin or a short, soft coat that is close to the skin. Their coats come in a variety of hues and patterns. Only the occasional brushing and bathing are required to keep the short, smooth-coated Chihuahuas healthy coat. To prevent mats and avoid tangles, a long-haired Chihuahua should get at least one brushing every week, if not more. Regular ear cleanings and nail trimmings are also recommended for your Chi. It is advised to regularly brush your dog’s teeth to avoid tartar accumulation and to lessen dental issues.

Activity level

This breed of dog occasionally exhibits bursts of energy, but they quickly tire. Since they enjoy running about and playing, they can usually get adequate exercise even in a tiny area. You can normally maintain a healthy Chi with a few short walks. Overworking yourself does require caution. If your Chihuahua is struggling to keep up and is heavily panting, it’s time to go home, and you may have to carry them.
