Chihuahua Breed Standard

Chihuahua Breed Standard

Let’s just say that you want to show your Chihuahua.  There is a certain “breed standard” that your Chi will be judged on.

A breed standard is essentially a “blueprint” for the individual breed to fit for the function in which it was bred (herding, tracking, etc.).  The standard is not “set in stone,” and can vary in different associations and countries.  It is just a guideline for what Chihuahuas should look like.

Here is the Chihuahua breed standard:

    I enjoyed your story and your dogs are so cute. They are fun little critters, aren’t they! I had never had–or wanted–a Chi before. But last year was awful…I lost my 14 yr old Border Collie, and my best friend and my daughter ( age 49, both died with lung cancer 2 months apart. A neighbor hd a couple of Chi’s and just loved them. Well, she showed up at my door with ababy chihuahua, and said “I think you need this.” I said, Oh, no i don’t.” She said he needed a home badly. His family was splitting up & he wasn’t getting proper care. I have “sucker” imbedded in my forhead when it comes to animals in need. I took him to the vet 3 days later to have a check-up and get annual shots. Well, he weighed 2.2 lb and still had baby teeth. After having 2 Big dogs that lived a long time, this Chi was so tiny. I gave himm everything a puppy could ever want or need, and now about 1 1/2 yrs later, he weighs just under 6 lb and is PERFECT.ha Of course we totally fell in love with him. The neighbor was right. i needed him as much as he needed me.
