What is a Chihuahua?

Chihuahuas are dogs, yes, it is true, they are also the smallest dog breed. As the smallest, they need a few different considerations than other dog breeds. This applies to other toy breeds as well.

Chihuahuas are second most often euthanized dog breed in USDid you know that Chihuahuas are the second most often euthanized dog breed in the United States according to the ASPCA? Why? Because many Chihuahua parents don’t understand their unique needs in both health and training.

Together, as a community, we can help change that. How? By helping each other understand the breed. Education is the key. We can help each other and maybe save a little one from ending up in a shelter simply because their owner got frustrated and didn’t know how to change bad behavior or what was causing it. Raising a Chihuahua is really not the same as raising any other dog breed.

Often Misunderstood

Whether you now have or have had or never had a Chihuahua, you can’t deny that they have a bad rap. I’m sure you’ve heard them all; “Mean little yippy dogs”, “ankle biters”, “vicious”. Just the other day I read a post on an animal forum that said this; “Why do people like Chihuahuas? They are just mean bug-eyed, little rats.”

I try to be charitable when I read or hear these things, but honestly, when I hear them, I feel a little defensive. I remind myself that these people just don’t know Chihuahuas, they are probably only repeating what they have heard or the only Chihuahuas they have ever known were ones that had unprepared and untrained owners or guardians. ChiChis And Me is here to help educate owners and guardians with tools they need to have a happy, peaceful, joyful life with their little one, and to help change their bad reputations.
