The Chihuahua is a very popular small dog type for a pet.
The most famous Chihuahua is probably the Taco Bell Chihuahua but there’s more to them than meets the eye. They are fiesty, alert, affectionate and confident pets.
Although they love to run in the park, they are adaptable dogs that also adjust well to smaller spaces and thus are a common choice for people who live in apartments or condominiums.
They can grow to be between 7-9 inches and weigh a very light 3-6 pounds.
Chihuahua’s very first bred in the early 1900s and come in a variety of colors and markings. As noted below, they do shed but you can groom your pet more often to lessen the shedding, if that bothers you.
