Graceful, alert and swift-moving with a saucy expression, Chihuahuas are highly intelligent and should not be underestimated even though small in size. The breed can be any color – solid, marked or splashed and the coat may be long or short. These sassy little dogs are well known as “purse dogs”. Chihuahuas are a member of the Toy Group. Buyer beware… there is no such things as a “teacup” Chihuahua. This is a marketing ploy by puppy-mill breeders.
