Description: Chihuahua puppies, also known as Chi -Chi, or Chi pups are thought to be descended from the Techichi, a companion dog favored by the Toltec civilization in Mexico. Chihuahuas are the smallest breed recognized by some kennel clubs..
Appearance: Chihuahua puppy coats come in many patterns and colors such as fawn, red, cream, chocolate, brown, mixed, white, and black. No color or pattern is considered more valuable than another, and can have a smooth short haired coat or a long haired coat. There are 2 main types of Chihuahua pups differing only in head shape: namely the "Apple" or "Deer" varieties. Apple head varieties have rounder heads, close-set eyes, and relatively short ears and legs. Deer head varieties have flat-topped heads, wider set eyes, larger ears, and longer, more slender legs. Deer heads were the breed standard conformation in the mid-20th century, but current breed standards defined by registries such as the AKC specify the apple-head conformation

Chihuahua owners tend to struggle with housetraining, and often find that their dogs are not compatible with small children. Their small size makes them delicate and vulnerable to injuries and attacks from larger animals. Like all dogs, they benefit from appropriate socialization and training. Chihuahuas love their dens and often burrow themselves in pillows, clothes hampers, and blankets and may share some cats behaviors as they also enjoy climbing up to high perches and platforms.
Care: Not hypoallergenic, but coats are easy to groom and to care for. Unlike many longhaired breeds, longhaired Chihuahuas require no trimming and minimal grooming. Contrary to popular belief, the longhaired breed also typically sheds less than its shorthaired counterparts. Up to three or more years may be needed before a full longhaired coat develops.
