Teacup chihuahua puppies

Chihuahuas are amongst the smallest dogs and they are in the toys category. Male chihuahua are about
6-9 inches (15-23 cm) tall while female dogs are about 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) tall. They weight between from 2 to 6 pounds (1-3 kg).

People often call the very small chihuahuas Teacup chihuahua puppies but it is not an official name according to the A.K.C breed standards.

Chihuahuas have small heads with short pointed noses. They also have very large pointed ears that made them famous.

The chihuahua is a good companion because it is loyal and loving. They might show some signs of jealousy, so it is good to train them early and to teach them to socialise. They can be pretty suspicious of people they don't know.

Because of its very small size, it is safer to walk the chihuahua using a harness then a collar. Also, if you live in a cold climate, consider a coat when you take him outside.
