Chihuahua breedSmall in size, huge in personality. One of the most recognizable dog breeds, the Chihuahua is known for his alert, pointy ears, saucer-sized eyes and sassy spirit. Their fur comes in many different colors with different markings and can be long or short. The breed is highly intelligent.

When he does go outside, just be sure to limit his time in cold weather. With his large personality, the Chihuahua needs some training to keep him in check with who’s the boss. Don’t worry, a little training goes a long way with this super smart breed.
