About Chihuahua Dogs

Chihuahua Dogs Are Not For Everyone

In what seems like a very tiny dog, a personality the size of a Great Dane emerges. For some Chihuahua lovers itís just another Chi, and others are just learning about this little entertainer. Whether you have had your Chihuahua for several years or you have just taken your very first Chi home, they will be full of surprises that will keep you amused as long as they live. Since Chihuahuas are known to be the longest living dog, he/she will be amusing you for many years to come. There life expectancy is 15 years and they sometimes live into their early twenties.

However, Chihuahuas are not a good breed of choice for everyone. While there are always exceptions, Chihuahua dogs are typically possessive and protective. They tend to be a one person dog. Chihuahuas are not usually patient around children who donít understand just how fragile they are. Yes, even though they are confident, courageous, fearless, and tough, they are also prone to injuries due to their size. The Chihuahua can be seriously injured or even killed if accidentally stepped on or sat on.

Chihuahuas are dogs that clan. They recognize and accept their own breed but donít like other breeds of dogs. Chis have been know to attack other much larger dogs It is your responsibility, as an owner, to keep this from happening. A friend of mine lost her dog when another much larger dog attacked him for no apparent reason. Her dog was on a leash walking from her apartment to her car when this took place. She was unaware of the other dog being nearby. We all know our Chihuahuas are much like our children so keep a protective eye on him/her and be aware of what is around you if your Chi is not in your arms or a carrier.

Joanell is an average Chihuahua dog lover who wants to be sure you are choosing a Chihuahua because this is the right dog for you and not just because theyíre cute. When there is publicity about a dog such as the Taco Bell Chihuahua or 101 Dalmatians, thousands of people flock to get one and then find that it isnít the dog they thought they were getting. Due to this, thousands of dogs are abandoned by there owners and many never find another home and have to be put down. Do the right thing and read up on the dog you are thinking about getting so that you know what to expect when you bring them home. You and the dog will have a much happier relationship if you do.
