Who doesn’t love Chihuahuas! If you have ever owned a one or know someone who does, you know this breed is very easy to love and care for. Chihuahuas are among the smallest breeds in the world, but don’t under estimate they have a very large brain when compared to their body size – so they are very intelligent.
SMALLEST BREED IN THE WORLD
Chihuahua’s are sometimes referred to as “teacup,” “pocket sized,” “toy,” or “miniature” but this is not an accurate assessment as they are naturally born small dogs and no matter what size you have, they are always considered as a small standard size dog.
ONLY TWO TYPES OF COATS
That’s right, a Chihuahua has two types of coat appearances – long haired and short haired. After heat cycles, the female Chihuahua is most likely to blow their coat – which means they will lose most of their fur during this period but it will grow back! Chihuahua’s have many different coat colors and markings, the types of colors you could expect to see are sand or blonde, fawn colored, chestnut, silver, steel blue, black, and tan, or particoloured just to name the most common colors.
LOOK INTO THE EYES OF A CHIHUAHUA
It is a well-known saying, that if you look into the eyes of a Chihuahua, you can know a lot about what they are feeling or thinking. They have full and round eyes that truly express their emotions, they are very luminous with bold black or ruby irises.
Chihuahuas require regular brushing to maintain their smooth coat, a daily dry conditioner can assist to keep the skin and hair healthy and clean. Chihuahuas have sensitivities when it comes to getting cold, so it is important to really make sure you bath them on days that are hot or to blow dry them with a blow dryer on warm temperatures. Otherwise, invest in a leave on conditioner that you can use without water – this way your Chihuahua stays dry but still looks, smells and feels their best!
