All about Chihuahua's


As decribed by Akc:


Chihuahuas are highly intelligent and not to be
underestimated for their diminutive size. These sassy
little dogs have an independent streak. Owners must
keep in mind that the breed is overall healthy; however,
their small size makes them fragile. They should be
kept indoors or don a sporty sweater during the chilly
seasons because their tiny bodies cannot tolerate
cold temperatures.
The Chihuahua's history is shrouded in mystery, but some believe he originated from
 the Fennec Fox, a very small animal with big eyes and ears, which could explain the
 tiny frame, luminous eyes and large ears on the breed today. Chihuahua's were used
 in religious ceremonies and were pets to the upper class. The breed derives its name
 from the Mexican State of Chihuahua, where the earliest specimens of the breed were
 found
Right Breed for You?
Chihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like qualities. They are good with families if the
 children are gentle and patient. Because of their small size, they require little exercise
 and are good city dogs, but can be sensitive to cold temperatures. Smooth coated
 Chihuahuas need very little grooming due to their short hair. Long coats need occasional
 brushing but still require minimal grooming.
Graceful, alert and swift-moving with a saucy expression, Chihuahuas are highly intelligent
and should not be underestimated even though small in size. The breed can be any color
 - solid, marked or splashed and the coat may be long or short
Molera
Historically, the Chihuahua developed in Mexico and the
United States has displayed a “soft spot” on the top of the
head. In the Chihuahua this spot, or fontanel, is known as
a Molera; and is the same as that found in human babies.
In the past, this molera was accepted as a mark of purity
in the breed, and it is still mentioned in most Chihuahua
breed standards the world over. A domed head with
a molera present does not predispose the Chihuahua to
hydrocephalus

Hypoglycemia means low blood sugar. It can occur
if a puppy has gone too long between meals, has
gotten chilled or is stressed. A puppy that has become
hypoglycemic will lack energy and become listless. Corn
syrup and honey (diluted 50-50 with water) are readily
available items you can give your puppy to restore its
sugar balance. If it does not respond immediately seek
veterinary assistance.

Our breed standard recognizes two varieties of
Chihuahuas, the long coat and the smooth coat. All
Chihuahuas must weigh six pounds or under as our
standard specifies in order to be shown. Occasionally,
within a litter, there may be a puppy that is unusually
small. That puppy is a small Chihuahua and any other
breakdown in description is not correct.

Referencing your Chihuahua puppy's current weight and age using this chart will provide a rough estimation of their future size. However, the most accurate representation of a pup's future weight is through their parents. If you're looking to adopt a Chihuahua pup and want to know how large they will be as an adult, ask the breeder/current owner if you can see the parents. If both the parents are large, there's a good chance their pups will grow to a similar large size. Keep in mind that the AKC breed standard weight for a Chihuahua is under 6 pounds, which is also the top weight listed on this chart.
