|Chihuahua Breed Information:
Chihuahua is the oldest breed in North America, and the smallest dog breed in the world! The history of the Chihuahua has been very difficult to trace, but through folklore, legend, and archaeological findings, there is sufficient evidence suggesting that the Chihuahua is an ancient breed originating from Mexico. The most common theory is that the Chihuahua descended from the Techichi, a companion dog favoured by the Toltecs, bred with miniaturised Chinese dogs brought to the Americas by the Spanish Conquistadors. Native to Mexico, the breed was named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua. The Chihuahua finally made its way to Europe towards the end of the 19th century. The Chihuahua is courageous, extremely lively, alert, and proud. They
give and demand affection. The Chihuahua is strong-willed, intensely loyal,
and very attached to their owners. Especially protective, the Chihuahua will follow its owner's every move when strangers are present, keeping
as close as possible. Chihuahuas recognize their own breed and sometimes
disapprove of others. All Chihuahuas should be properly socialized at a young
age to avoid excessive aggressiveness. They are very intelligent and learn quickly, but are most receptive to gentle training and positive reinforcement. The Chihuahua doesn't like to be poked, pestured or teased, and may snap if provoked. Because of their small size, they will resort to using their teeth if they feel threatened. Despite their small size, the Chihuahua loves to excercise and should not be confined to very small spaces. They are also very sensitive to the cold.
