A Chihuahua is a tiny companion dog that originated from Mexico. It is easily recognized anywhere because of its size and characteristic bug eyes. They are great pets for adult households but can also be with children, as long as kids are taught how to interact with such a small dog. The Chihuahua is affectionate but also alert and feisty, making it a great watchdog.
Chihuahuas can live up to 16 years or more (the oldest Chihuahua reached the age of 20!) but like all small dogs, it is prone to several health issues including luxating patella, tracheal collapse, and various tooth and gum diseases. This should not be a cause of concern though -- proper breeding effectively reduces the risk of the health problems in a Chihuahua. That’s why it matters where you get your puppy.
Chihuahuas are intelligent and trainable and it’s best to start teaching them commands and expected behavior early on. Remember that these dogs have a big personality so you need to be consistent and firm when teaching them!
