The Chihuahua is a sassy little dog with a massive personality. They are one of the smallest dog breeds found in the world today. They are feisty, yet loyal companions that love walks or being carried along with you on your daily routine.
They come with both short and long coats that come in a variety of colors. Their head tends to be round and apple shaped, but sometimes it can be shaped more like that of a deer with a small and elegant muzzle. They have large expressive eyes, large perky ears, and a long tail that is sometimes straight or sometimes curled over its back.
