Read along for more information about how to take home our Chihuahua puppies for sale!
Are they personable and, most importantly, trainable?
Chihuahuas are tiny little dogs. You know that, but did you know they have big personalities? They are the quintessential “big dog in a small body.” You’ll be relieved to know that despite being headstrong and somewhat stubborn, they are very intelligent. Training them isn’t a hard task, especially when they’re rewarded with positive reinforcement and treats. Regarding potty training, you must keep a firm and steady hand with them. They’re small and can maneuver into little spaces allowing them to leave little signs of their presence (if you know what we mean)! Crate training is recommended as the most effective way to housebreak them.
To answer the question “are they personable?” the answer is a resounding “yes!” They tend to bond with one or two people in the family. If you have children, make sure that they all share in the responsibility of caring for them so that they can equally share their love! Chihuahuas are very loyal and loving to their owners and make great pets for many types of families!
So what exactly are you getting with a Chihuahua?
Chihuahua puppies are one of the most diverse breeds. They come in different colors and hair combinations. For instance, you will see Chihuahua puppies in black or cream, and they could be either short-haired or long-haired. Various combinations are all recognized by the American Kennel Club. One thing for sure is their petite size. Chihuahua puppies can grow to be anywhere from 5 pounds to 12 pounds. Another lovely stat about these pint-sized babies is their long lifespan, which average 13 to 15 years!
