The Chihuahua Dog or Chihuahueño is the smallest breed of dog, and is named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua. There are two varieties of Chihuahua recognized by the AKC– the Smooth Coat (short-haired) and the Long Coat (long-haired). Both the Smooth and the Long Coats have their special attractions and are equally easy to keep clean and well-groomed.
Dogs of either coat type may be identified as either apple head or deer head Chihuahuas, particularly in the United States. Apple heads have rounded heads, close-set eyes, and relatively short ears and legs. Deer heads have flat-topped heads, more widely set eyes, larger ears, and longer, more slender legs.
The Chihuahua dog or Chihuahueño does not breed true for size, and puppies from the same litter can mature in drastically different sizes from one another. Many breeders try to breed Chihuahuas as small as possible, because those marketed as “teacup” or “tiny teacup” command higher prices.
The breed standard for both the Long and Short Coat Chihuahuas will be identical except for the description of the coat. Chihuahuas have large, round eyes and large, erect ears, set in a high, dramatically rounded skull.
Chihuahua dogs or Chihuahueño occur in virtually any color combination, from solid to marked or splashed, allowing for colors from solid black to solid white, spotted, sabled, or a variety of other colors and patterns.
Colors and patterns can combine and affect each other, resulting in a very high degree of variation. Common colors are fawn, red, cream, chocolate, brown, mixed, white, and black. No color or pattern is considered more valuable than another.
