Chihuahua (Smooth)

Breed History / Description

The smallest breed in the world takes its name from the Mexican state where it became fashionable in the late 19th Century. From there its popularity spread to America, and with the publicity gained through celebrity and film star owners, the breed became a canine sensation. Bold and saucy in temperament, the breed comes in two varieties: the smooth coat and the long coat, and share the same physical attributes apart from coat type. Outgoing and confident, the Chihuahua has a huge personality in a tiny frame. The Chihuahua is in the Toy Breed Group. 


Alert little dog; swift-moving with brisk, forceful action and saucy expression. 


Gay, spirited and intelligent, neither snappy nor withdrawn.
