Chihuahua Breed Standard
Toy Group
General Appearance
A graceful, alert, swift-moving compact little dog with saucy expression, and with terrier-like qualities of temperament.

Size, Proportion, Substance
Weight – A well balanced little dog not to exceed 6 pounds. Proportion – The body is off-square; hence, slightly longer when measured
from point of shoulder to point of buttocks, than height at the withers. Somewhat shorter bodies are preferred in males. Disqualification
– Any dog over 6 pounds in weight.

Head
A well rounded "apple dome" skull, with or without molera. Expression – Saucy. Eyes - Full, round, but not protruding, balanced, set well
apart-luminous dark or luminous ruby. Light eyes in blond or white-colored dogs permissible. Blue eyes or a difference in the color of
the iris in the two eyes, or two different colors within one iris should be considered a serious fault. Ears – Large, erect type ears, held
more upright when alert, but flaring to the sides at a 45 degree angle when in repose, giving breadth between the ears. Stop – Well
defined. When viewed in profile, it forms a near 90 degree angle where muzzle joins skull. Muzzle – Moderately short, slightly pointed.
Cheeks and jaws lean. Nose – Self-colored in blond types, or black. In moles, blues, and chocolates, they are self-colored. In blond
types, pink noses permissible. Bite – Level or scissors. Overshot or undershot, or any distortion of the bite or jaw, should be penalized
as a serious fault. A missing tooth or two is permissible. Disqualifications – Broken down or cropped ears.


Neck, Topline, Body
Neck – Slightly arched, gracefully sloping into lean shoulders. Topline – Level. Body – Ribs rounded and well sprung (but not too much
"barrel-shaped"). Tail – Moderately long, carried sickle either up or out, or in a loop over the back with tip just touching the back.
(Never tucked between legs.) Disqualifications – Docked tail, bobtail.

Forequarters
Shoulders – Lean, sloping into a slightly broadening support above straight forelegs that set well under, giving free movement at the
elbows. Shoulders should be well up, giving balance and soundness, sloping into a level back (never down or low). This gives a well
developed chest and strength of forequarters. Feet – A small, dainty foot with toes well split up but not spread, pads cushioned.
(Neither the hare nor the cat foot.) Dewclaws may be removed. Pasterns – Strong.

Hindquarters
Muscular, with hocks well apart, neither out nor in, well let down, firm and sturdy. Angulation – Should equal that of forequarters. The
feet are as in front. Dewclaws may be removed.

Coat
In the Smooth Coats, the coat should be of soft texture, close and glossy. (Heavier coats with undercoats permissible.) Coat placed well
over body with ruff on neck preferred, and more scanty on head and ears. Hair on tail preferred furry. In Long Coats, the coat should be
of a soft texture, either flat or slightly wavy, with undercoat preferred. Ears – Fringed. Tail – Full and long (as a plume). Feathering on
feet and legs, pants on hind legs and large ruff on the neck desired and preferred. (The Chihuahua should be groomed only to create a
neat appearance.) Disqualification – In Long Coats, too thin coat that resembles bareness.

Color
Any color - Solid, marked or splashed.

Gait
The Chihuahua should move swiftly with a firm, sturdy action, with good reach in front equal to the drive from the rear. From the rear,
the hocks remain parallel to each other, and the foot fall of the rear legs follows directly behind that of the forelegs. The legs, both front
and rear, will tend to converge slightly toward a central line of gravity as speed increases. The side view shows good, strong drive in
the rear and plenty of reach in the front, with head carried high. The topline should remain firm and the backline level as the dog moves.

Temperament
Alert, projecting the ‘terrier-like’ attitudes of self importance, confidence, self-reliance.

Short & long haired Chihuahuas
Short and long haired Chihuahuas (the smooth and long coated Chihuahua) are the only two types of Chihuahua recognized by the
American Kennel Club (AKC).




Although they differ in appearance, they are not different Chihuahua breeds. Despite appearance being their only difference, a decision
was made in 1952 to separate them and judge them in different categories at dog shows.


The term Smooth coat means that it is a short haired dog, and not necessarily that the hair is smooth. The coat is short and shiny, but
may be soft and smooth, or wavy and whiskery to the touch.

The Smooth coated Chihuahua does not require much grooming, and will shed more than the Long coat, though being small, they won’t
shed all that much.



Long haired Chihuahua Coat Long haired Chihuahuas are smoother to the touch than short haired Chihuahuas. The coat can be straight
or slightly curly, and they have a downy undercoat which gives them their fluffy appearance.

It may take 2 or more years for a long haired coat to develop completely.


The longhaired Chihuahua typically sheds less than the short haired one and requires minimal grooming. The coat will require brushing
and combing at least once a week or it may get matted, and they take longer to bathe and dry.

Trimming will occasionally need to be carried out near the hindquarters, or dirt may cling to excess hair.

Both types of Chihuahua are as commonly available as each other, and they can possess a coat of any color or combination of colors,
including, but not limited to, black & tan, blue, sable, sand, fawn, chestnut, black and white.

Although blue is considered rare, no color or pattern is considered more valuable than the others. The classic Chihuahua color remains
Fawn.
If you see a small, bug-eyed creature poking out of the top of a tote bag, there’s a good chance it’s a Chihuahua. For anyone with an
affinity toward the adorably portable, it's easy to see why the Chihuahua has risen in arm-candy fame. Add to that its dedication to its
human parents and it's clear why this small dog enjoys such popularity. In the last 10 years, the Chihuahua has remained in the top 13
most-registered dogs in the United States according to the American Kennel Club (AKC). With short little legs, it usually stands about 6
to 9 inches (15 to 23 centimeters) to its shoulder and weighs between 2 and 6 pounds (1 and 3 kilograms). Bred with either short or long
hair, Chihuahuas come in over 30 different colors and varieties. Perfect for the person on the go, they make great travel companions
and city dwellers since they don’t require much exercise. No doubt the Chihuahua is a breed you’ll keep seeing around.
The tiniest dog in the history of the AKC

Description
Rather than being bred down from a larger breed, the Chihuahua is the only toy breed that is naturally small.

The Chihuahua has a well rounded, apple shaped head. The muzzle is tiny in contrast to the head, will be slightly pointed, and either have a level or scissors bite. Ears are
large and erect, spaced far apart and will flair to the sides when relaxed. Their eyes are round and large (but not protruding), very expressive, and should either be dark
or ruby colored .The nose is short, pointed, and black. Light-colored eyes, and pink noses are allowed in blonde-colored dogs.

The body is robust and compact, with well sprung ribs. Measurements from wither to tail should be longer than from withers to ground. Shorter bodies are preferred in
males. The neck is slightly arched, sloping into lean shoulders, and continuing down into a level topline. Their front legs should be straight, short, and square-shaped, with
the back legs being well-muscled and thin. The feet are small and dainty with well split toes. And finally, the long sickle-shaped tail should curl, looping over the back with
the tip just barely touching the back.

Coat Description
The AKC recognizes two different variations of coats: the longhaired and the shorthaired. Both variations are minimum to average shedders.

A shorthaired Chihuahua's coat should be smooth and glossy, whilst being a little coarser than a longhaired Chihuahua; an undercoat is allowed. The coat should be a
little longer on the body than the head and ears; the tail should be furry. A ruff around the neck is preferred.

The longhaired Chihuahua's coat should be soft, and either lay flat or slightly curly; an undercoat is also preferred. Ears, feet, front and back legs should have feathering;
the tail should be plumed. It is also desirable to have a large ruff around the neck.
Chihuahua Information


Many of us see the Chihuahua as a small and cute dog. But there's actually more to it than its tiny size. The Chihuahua may be a petite
dog but it has a big character that complements its big eyes and big ears. It is a fearless animal that can be a great pet depending on
how the owner handles it.

This breed of dog has been found to be a popular pet of choice by elderly people and apartment residents. It is now considered the 12th
most popular dog breed in the U.S.

Chihuahua's Origin
Historians believe this dog breed got its name from the Chihuahua state of Mexico. Its ancestors were believed to be the ancient
Techichi dogs of the Toltecs described as small in size with heavy bones and long coat and was crossed with the Oriental hairless
breed. The Techichi, though, was bigger than the present day Chihuahua and was mute.

The discovery of the breed was recorded in the 1850s in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It was more than 50 years later in 1904 when it
got registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC). Since then, the Chihuahua's popularity always remained.

Chihuahua Physical Description
The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog registered with the AKC. It stands at six to eight inches tall and weighs two to six pounds.

It may be small but it's a muscular dog with round-shaped skull, big eyes and big ears that stand upright when it's alert. Its muzzle is
short and a bit pointed.

Chihuahuas have a smooth coats,  longcoats, and some are hairless.


Chihuahua Character
The American Kennel Club describes this breed as an alert, graceful and fast moving little dog with saucy expression and temperament
similar to terriers.



This dog can be a loyal companion and protector making it ideal as a watchdog.

Chihuahua Healthcare


Owners of Chihuahuas are advised not to let their dogs jump from a high position such as furniture or from their arms as it could result
in a fractured leg. Roughly playing with kids is also not recommended.

The soft spot on his head should also be protected as a blow in this part could cause his death.
Chihuahua Training Tips

Like any dog, the Chihuahua can also be trained. All it takes is for the pet owner to have a lot of patience and creativity in training the
dog. The trainer must also understand the temperament of a Chihuahua in order to successfully teach the dog the basic commands and
various tricks.

It may be a petite dog but the Chihuahua actually has a strong character. In fact, it has the ability to control a home and its master the
reason why training it is highly important. When you teach this dog, it ensures his training in obeying you instead of manipulating you
around. Another benefit of dog training is that you strengthen your bond with your pet thereby ensuring his loyalty to you as long as he
lives.

Chihuahuas are intelligent, energetic and lively in nature. They love physical activities and those that stimulate their brain and since
training involves both of these, they warmly embrace it given the proper handling and encouragement.
Of course, rewards and constant praise should never be forgotten because they are crucial in enticing them to do the things you want
them to do.

What To Teach Your Chihuahua
When training Chihuahuas, owners should keep in mind that their patience is necessary. Avoid training when you're tired or angry. Take
it just one step at a time and be sure to keep your treats ready before you start your lessons.

In the home, it's important that the Chihuahua is potty trained at an early stage. This should teach them the proper place in the house
where to poo. If you want your Chihuahua to poo outside of the house, purchase Sit Stay Fetch, which devotes a lot of time to potty
training your Chihuahua.

You can also visit the Potty Professor, which is a website dedicated to teaching owners how to house train their puppies. Visit the Potty
Professor website to learn how to house-train your Chihuahua puppy.

The basic commands should not be ignored. These include sit, down, stay, come, heel and roll over. You can put your dog on the table
while teaching these commands as it can be tiring if you have to bend all the time.

Crate training is also recommended. This should teach them the right place to poo in the house. See to it that you bring the puppy to the
box after eating, waking up or whenever you see it circling. You can use newspapers as well but be sure to change the used ones.

How To Handle Your Chihuahua
The number one rule in handling Chihuahuas is to always be gentle with them.
Remember not to use choke collars on a Chihuahua as their necks can easily get hurt. A good option is to use the flat buckle collar or
harness to protect its trachea.

Exercise should be a priority and if possible, it must be done on a daily basis. However, it may not need long walks as this breed is
already energetic in nature so running around an apartment is enough exercise for the dog.

If you want to take your small dog for a walk during cold weather, be sure to let him wear a sweater as they're usually sensitive to cold
temperatures. Avoid taking them out, though, when the temperature is below 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

Never allow your Chihuahua to jump from a high place as he might hurt his joints due to the landing impact. Joint disorders and fracture
are among the common problems of this breed hence, they need careful handling.

A final note is to always stretch your patience when training your Chihuahua's. Consistency is vital, too, if you want to ensure that your
little dog obeys you and remains loyal to you.

COLORS OF THE CHIHUAHUA

CREAM CHIHUAHUA : Cream is a very common color in chihuahuas. It can be solid, parti-colored or even sabled. Cream is actually a dilution of fawn. Some cream dogs
show this more than others.

WHITE CHIHUAHUA : White Chihuahuas are almost totally devoid of black pigment. This is not the same as what is seen in parti-colors. Solid whites usually have pale
noses and eye rings, and somewhat lighter eyes, almost albino in appearance, but not quite. This is very rare in chihuahuas, usually because it would take two white
doges to make white pups with this effect.

BLUE CHIHAUHUA : Blue is a shade down from black. It is somewhat rare in chihuahuas, though more and more are being bred. It is also a recessive color. Usually, it
skips a generation and passes on to the next, unless one parent was bred from both blue parents.

RED CHIHUAHUA : Red is quite a common color in chihuahuas. It can appear either as bright red (like as see in Irish Setters) or with some sabling, which is with black
hairs dispersed throughout the body. Those without the sabling are in the more recessive category than those that have the sabling.

CHOCOLATE CHIHUAHUA : Chocolate is a rarer color in chihuahuas, but only because it seems to not be popular with many breeders. It is a beautiful color none the less. It
can appear brown, like the color of a chocolate bar, or somewhat reddish. In terms of genetics, choclate is in the same class as the blues. The b and d groups have
similar results, in diluting, or changing the black pigment. It is the b/b gene that causes chocolates.

LAVENDAR CHIHUAHUA : Sometimes a choclate can be diluted, as shown in these pics. This creates a color known as "lavendar" in chihuahuas. Lavendar is hard to
come by because it is hard reprodce -- even if you were to mate a pair of lavendar dogs. One mate must have the diluting "d" gene, as seen in blues.
WWW.TINYPAWSANDCLAWS.COM
BLACK CHIHUAHUA : Black is the most dominant color in chihuahuas, it comes in the B group in genetics. Almost every chihuahua color has some form of the B gene in
them. Solid black chihuahuas are rare, but black can come with some white or tan markings, or even in dappled form. Solid black is very dominant in Chihuahuas.
However, in contrast the "at" gene that makes up the black and tan pattern in chihuahuas (like seen in dobermans) is among one of the most common colors in
chihuahuas, but is very recessive, too. It cannot be accomplisted by mating a solid color with a black and tan.

FAWN CHIHUAHUA : This color is also known as Tawny, or sable in most other breeds. The most common color of them all in Chihuahuas. It is caused by the ay gene
family. It often appears reddish, but there are several different varieties of fawn. There are blue fawns, Chocolate fawns, brindle fawns and a variety of others. Cream and
fawn are often mistaken for each other, but it is definately darken than cream.

PARTI-COLOR CHIHUAHUA : Not genarally dominant color pattern. Often appears as white with spots of varying sizes on the body. This is in the s genetic family. The color
can any variety in parti's, but the white usually makes up more than 50% of the coloration.

BRINDLE CHIHUAHUA : Brindle is a rather rare color in chihuahuas. It is not new; it's been around for many years. If one parent is solid colored and another brindle,
chances are the pups will be mostly solid. Brindling is a coat pattern where there are black or any other darker colored streaks causing pronounced stripes on another
color. Reverse brindling can also occur, where black is the base color and streaked with another color.

MERLE CHIHUAHUA: Last, but not least, is the merle Chihuahua. This is a color that Australian shepherds are more famous for. Merle more commonly, can be either blue
or red, but there is also sable and chocolate merle as well. The pattern in the merle is never  uniform, the splotches can vary in sizes. This beautiful dog comes with
cosequences. It is never a good idea to mate a merle to a merle. This produces a double merle and these dogs often have hearing and eye problems.
