Early outlines of the dogs by Missionaries and Conquistadors traveling all though South America indicated they were employed in worship rites or perhaps eaten by constant fans of the Aztec faith. Many have been discovered buried with folk, so it's possible they were fatally injured to join their owners in death. Not only would these dogs sound the alarm if anybody came near their private property, but they were sufficiently little to be welcome on board vessels of any size. If you adore Chihuahuas, naturally youll need to know more about them. This tiny power-house has a massive heart so do not be conned by its little size. Chihuahuas come in all kinds of colours, including chocolate, cream, silver, blue, black and fawn. Their heads can be formed like deer or they can have apple heads. Applehead Chihuahuas have a particularly round head, a tiny muzzle, and close-set eyes. The ones with deer heads have a lengthened nose like Doberman Pinschers. The North American Dog house Club recognizes long-haired and short-haired kinds of Chihuahuas.
The smooth coat of the short-haired type sheds little. The terms teacup and mini when applied to Chihuahuas are simply commercial designations used to try and provoke high costs from the purchaser. Standard Chihuahuas today weight 6 pounds or less, and are 6 to 9 inches tall. The darling tan dog that headlined in the Taco Bell commercial is representative of the hottest kind of Chihuahua. If you live in a loft, you couldnt do much better than to get one of those small dogs. They're amazing companions and live a long life, in several cases starting to become sixteen years or older. Shorthaired companions may need some more heat, often burrowing under covers to maintain their body heat while asleep.
