Renowned as the smallest dog breed, Chihuahuas proved that size really doesn’t matter. These toy breeds have huge personalities and great intellect.
Chihuahuas are icons of innate grace and wit. Their demeanor explains why they are well-loved “purse dogs” of the rich and famous. They became even more popular when they starred in the Disney movie trilogy, “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”.
When properly trained, Chihuahuas can compete with medium and large dogs. Even if they have high energy levels, do not overexert them during exercise.

GROOMING YOUR CHIHUAHUA
Due to recessive gene traits, Chihuahua can be long coated, but they usually have a smooth and short coat. Regardless which coat variety; shedding season is still manageable since they are small. Use rubber mitts and soft bristled brush to comb and detangle their hair. Just like any other dogs, keep their nails trimmed, along with a healthy ear and dental hygiene.
