The Chihuahua originated in Mexico, and because of its small size, it was often used as a fighting dog. The word Chihuahua comes from the term Chihuahua, which in Spanish means small dog. The Chihuahua was also called the Mexican Pit Bull, or Chizzahua in the United States.
Today, the Chihuahua has attained popularity not only in Mexico but in many parts of the world. In fact, the Chihuahua has become one of the most popular pets today. One of the main reasons why the chihuahua has become so popular is its small size and cute appearance. But did you know that not all chihuahuas look alike? And that is the key to selecting the right Chihuahua breed for you and your family.
The Chihuahua is probably the most recognizable of all the chihuahuas. Its body is a creamy white with black markings and spots that look like the spots on a bulldog’s coat. These black spots can vary from dark colored to platinum blonde. Because of the Chihuahua’s basic color, it is one of the least expensive chihuahuas and most people tend to keep them indoors. Most of the Chihuahuas that are bred tend to be short haired and have smooth coats, making them very easy to care for.
The Chihuahua comes in different sizes, but all have the same standard features. They are usually between twelve and fifteen inches in height and between three and five pounds in weight. Breeders often do not breed any bigger than ten pounds as the smaller ones are more prone to become ill. Since the smallest breed of chihuahuas is the oldest, you may find older ones at a flea market or an animal shelter. You may also see pictures of older chihuahuas in dog kennels.
Chihuahuas are prone to becoming sickly because of their delicate bones and skin. They are very susceptible to bone diseases, skin diseases and even respiratory illnesses. This is why it is advisable not to get your chihuahuas from puppy mills. Puppy mills are breeding grounds for a number of different problems including sicknesses and disease. If you choose a breeder from the internet, it is not guaranteed that he will be reputable as he may be from another city and the puppies could be from another breed of chihuahua as well.
The Chihuahua has a higher risk of developing hypoglycemia than other breeds of dogs. This is because they have a lower blood sugar level than most dogs. Hypoglycemia can lead to serious conditions like hypokalemia. A low blood sugar in a Chihuahua can make them weak and prone to diseases and infections. This can only increase if they are exposed to harsh conditions, such as shipping and breeding, because a Chihuahua’s metabolism is so fast, it can be hard for them to regulate their body temperature. If you think your chihuahua may be suffering from hypoglycemia talk to your vet about ways to treat this condition.
As already mentioned, a Chihuahua’s personality makes them easy to confuse with other animals, especially when crossing the road. Chihuahuas are small dogs which make them easier to steal than larger dogs. It can also be tempting to try to pet a chihuahua because they look so cute and small, but don’t let yourself be fooled. A Chihuahua makes a great watch dog, but don’t let yourself be fooled by this. Smaller dogs can be just as feisty as large dogs, but they have a tendency to get jealous of bigger dogs’ attention and take over the family house. This can be very frustrating and unhealthy for your chihuahua.
It is important that you get a vet certified before buying any dog. Chihuahuas can live for up to eight years if they are well cared for. Longer life spans are possible in certain dogs such as Great Danes, German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and Jack Russells, but they usually only reach around four to five years. Your vet should check your chihuahua’s teeth, ears, and molars for calcification or disease before making a final decision on the breed of your dog. A long and healthy lifespan is common for chihuahuas, but they do have to make sure they get the care and affection they need.
