The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named for the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. The Chihuahua has become a very popular dog in America. Confident, feisty, courageous, and loyal he is loving, gentle and sweet-natured with his family. He likes to play games, and needs lots of attention, affection and petting. Chihuahuas come in a wide variety of sizes, head shapes, colors, and coat lengths. For that reason Chihuahuas are a favorite breed here at TLC Kennel as no two are ever exactly alike and it’s lots of fun to see all the wonderful variations this breed is known for.
