An extremely high-energy dog, the tiny chihuahua is well-known for its intense devotion to a single owner. They’re usually reserved with strangers but are generally good with other household pets, including other dogs.
Their personalities vary widely. Some are bold while others are timid. Some will attempt to be protective and may bark a lot.
Although chihuahuas are very lively, they can usually get all the exercise they need by simply running around the house. They enjoy going on short leash walks or exploring a fenced-in yard. They’re always happy to accompany their human companions anywhere they go.
This breed is intolerant to cold and will often seek out warmth. They require minimal grooming, although those with a long coat need to be brushed two or three times a week.
