A Tiny Dog With A Dash Of Cat
The dog that eats like a mouse, plays like a cat and thinks like a dog. Created for
companionship the world’s smallest breed is loyal, affordable and affectionate. This
breed tends to shed a little but is highly trainable and otherwise very low maintenance.
Some do not care to be picked up, over exerted or restrained. Most are leery of loud
noises, strangers and rambunctious children.
Ideally suited for an individual, but with the proper training and precautions in
place, Chihuahuas make a fabulous family pet as well. Chihuahuas prefer the warm
quiet life in the company of their amigos and fellow Chihuahuas. They are very alert,
agile, entertaining and possibly the most reliable security alarm system ever created.
Our little buddies all love playing, sleeping and learning as a pack but nothing
beats the master’s lap or a sunny siesta on the patio, if you’re a Chihuahua.
Much like cats they prefer having a partner, not just for the fellowship but to assist
in the grooming of those pesky hard to reach areas. Even more catlike traits often
include being sneaky, possessive, moody, comical, curious, agile, stubborn, lazy
and others. They come in smooth and long coat and a variety of color schemes. No
two are alike as each one comes with a very unique personality.
Chihuahuas are fun, easy to care for and love their owners dearly. Unfortunately
they’re also fragile, fearful and often vocal. We prefer to find single owners or
small quiet families for our Chihuahua puppies. We seldom place them in families
with children under the age of five and recommend a standard Shih Tzu or perhaps
a designer breed for those with little ones. Please refer to the AKC for the official
Chihuahua breed standards.
Height: 6 to 9 inches

Selecting the appropriate breed is often more important than choosing which puppy.
It’s always best to refer to the AKC to obtain a general idea of the breeds structure,
temperament and care requirements before selecting your breed. We also have some
very reliable “pick of the litter” methods on our shopping tips page.
Secondly, you should try to speak with someone that actually owns the breed as a
pet, rather than just the folks trying to sell you one. Also keep in mind, how they
were initially cared for and later trained greatly determines how they look and behave
MODOG breed descriptions are based solely on our personal interpretation of, and
experience with, these particular breeds. These are not official standards and may
or may not accurately reflect the general characteristics of each breed.
