The Chihuahua was originated in Chihuahua, Mexico and descended from the ancient breed, Toltec, in the 9th century. The first breed of Chihuahua wasn't discovered until 1850. There were no records of the Techichi available prior to the 9th century. It seems to be probable that his ancestors were advent to the Maya tribes about the 5th century.
There are two versions if the Chihuahua, the smooth coat and the long coat. They stand about 5-8 inches tall and can weigh between 2-6 pounds. Chihuahuas with a smooth coat have a soft, glossy coat. Longhaired Chihuahuas are never coarse and are relatively easy to keep neat. Their large, round, bright eyes are a hallmark of a sprightly breed. Chihuahuas are very proud of their tails. They carry it around like a high flag.
A fawn to red with white color is most frequently seen, but all colors are accepted. They are very comical and entertaining. Also they are very brave dogs. They enjoy exercise. Also they are very playful.
When getting a Chihuahua puppy you must be extra careful not to step on them since they are so tiny. When walking around Chihuahuas use a shuffle motion to avoid stepping on them. Also, children should be supervised when playing with Chihuahuas, carefully and constantly. They have a loud bark that imitates a quacking duck. They also don't like other humans to invade their homes without permission from their owners. They can live peacefully with other pets. But have been known to raise some ruckus when they see a strange dog. Chihuahuas don't like bad weather, so it may be complicated to house break them. So it is recommended to have an indoor litter box.
In the American Kennel Club (AKC) the Chihuahua's popularity is 8th out of 146. In the AKC dog show some disqualifications include; any dog over 6 pounds, a broken or cropped ear, a bobtail or cropped tail. If your Chihuahua has a long coat, it can't be too thin as it resembles bareness.
