Chihuahua - Guide to Chihuahuas

Description: There is no arguing that the Chihuahua is the smallest of all dogs, but there is plenty of disagreement about its origins. Some claim that the breed was developed in Egypt over 3000 years ago, while others claim he is native to the Western hemisphere and evolved in Mexico. Some argue that perhaps the dog came to Mexico from the Mediterranean area during the Spanish Conquest, and yet others believe it arrived in Mexico as litttle as only 100 years with Chinese traders. Despite the confusion, the breed was discovered in Chihuahua, Mexico by American tourists in the 19th century who then brought the breed back to the States.

Temperament: The Chihuahua was developed primarily as a human companion, and as such he makes a good pet for the stay-at-home type. He is a jaunty, clever little dog and makes a good watch dog as well.

Health Problems: Chihuahuas are prone to several health issues which include hydrocephalus, epilepsy, seizure disorders, hypoglycemia and eye infections / injury among others. This breed is the only one to have a molera - or soft spot on its head which the Chihuahua is born with. Over time, it sho...
