10 things you need to know about chihuahuas

  1. Chihuahuas are the smallest breed of dogs, this makes them very delicate but by no means does their little stature match their personality. 
  2. Chihuahuas come in a range of sizes with different coats; the short or long haired.
  3. They really do not realise how small they are! So you have to be careful with them around children and larger dogs.
  4. Due to their size they don't need as much exercise as larger dogs but this doesn't mean they shouldn't have a walk at least once a day.
  5. Chihuahuas are extremely loyal and become very attached to their owners.
  6. Being highly intelligent they learn quickly and love the attention that comes with it.
  7. They don't need to eat a lot, but that doesn't mean you should share your food with them, because they are little it doesn't take much to poison them.
  8. Poorly bred chihuahuas can suffer a range of serious health problems.
  9. The cold is something chihuahuas HATE! Which is why most chihuahuas, if not all short-haired chihuahuas, need to have a coat when being walked in the winter.
  10. The chihuahua is definitely not just for christmas, they can live beyond 15 years.
