- Other Names:
The chihuahua is one of the most famous dog breeds in the world (thanks to their unique name and publicity as the Taco Bell spokesperson in America). These toy dogs are instantly recognized everywhere and are never afraid to show off their larger-than-life persona.
Chihuahuas are companion dogs and will nearly always be close to (if not in the arms of) their owner. The breed is extremely alert, which makes them a fantastic watch dog, and are extremely agile. Chihuahuas are intelligent and are willing to please their owner, so obedience training is generally not an issue even with people inexperienced with dogs.
