Funny Chihuahua Pictures
The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named after the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. Chihuahuas are noted for their nervous temperament and diminutive appearance.
The Chihuahua’s history is a puzzling one, as there are many theories surrounding their true origin. The Chihuahua was used in sacred rituals as they were considered holy to pre-Columbian Indian nations.
They were also popular pets among the upper class. The breed draws its name from the Mexican State of Chihuahua, where the first specimens of the breed were discovered.
Being naturally territorial and protective, Chihuahuas can be easily provoked to attack, and are therefore generally unsuitable for homes with small children. The AKC describes the breed as, "A graceful, alert, swift-moving little dog with saucy expression, compact, and with terrier-like qualities of temperament."
The breed tends to be fiercely loyal to one particular owner and in some cases may become over protective of the person especially around other people or animals, but may be attached to more.
They do not always get along with other breeds, and tend to have a "clannish" nature, often preferring the companionship of other Chihuahuas over other dogs. These traits generally make them unsuitable for households with children that are not patient and calm.
Chihuahuas crave attention, affection, exercise and being petted. They can be hyper, but eager to please.
They have a reputation as a "yappy" dog, which can be resolved with proper training. Chihuahuas with proper breeding are not "yappy"; the AKC standard calls for "a terrier-like attitude."
