History:

The history of the Chihuahua is vague. It is known that both the Toltec and Aztec cultures kept dogs, including a small breed called the Techichi, but it is uncertain whether these dogs were the ancestors of the Chihuahua.

Some fanciers believe it is a descendant of dogs introduced by Chinese or Spanish explorers. It was first seen by North Americans in the mid-nineteenth century and brought to the U.S. shortly thereafter.

The Chihuahua is a very small dog that is slightly longer than it is tall. The skull is large and rounded, sometimes described as an apple head. The muzzle is short and slightly pointed and the eyes are large and full. The ears are large and erect with the tips pointing slightly outward. The tail is natural and moderately long, carried erect, horizontally, or in a loop over the back. There are two coat types: longhaired and smooth. The longhaired type is soft, flat or slightly curly, usually with an undercoat. A large ruff on the neck and feathering on the tail, feet and legs is highly desirable.
