Special Feature: The Chihuahua
The StarNews Online recently featured a famous Chihuahua. Apart from that, who could ever forget Tinkerbell, the equally famous pet of hotel mogul Paris Hilton? I believe this is one of the most famous breeds all over the world, that even the clueless of all people are aware of their existence.
So what’s with a Chihuahua?
The chihuahua is actually the smallest breed among dogs, and is named after the state of Chihuahua in Mexico. The height of the average chihuahua ranges between six and ten inches, and the weight not more than six pounds. Wow, almost smaller and lighter than a newborn baby!
The temperament of the chihuahua depends on its ancestry, and largely on how it is trained and raised by its owners. For this reason, it is important the owner be aware of the dog’s recent line, and take time to train the dog and raise it well. According to the AKC, the typical chihuahua is graceful, swift-moving and extremely alert, even with its minute size. Chihuahuas also possess terrier-like qualities.
I would love to have a Chihuahua someday. Would you want your dog to be featured here?
