More than most other breeds, how a Chihuahua turns out depends largely on the genetic temperament
of his parents and grandparents (entire lines are social or antisocial) and how it is raised (socialization
and training) when brought home. A Chihuahua must be chosen with care, as the temperament of its
owner(s) can make a difference in the temperament of the pup. Ill tempered Chihuahuas can be easily
provoked to attack, and are therefore generally unsuitable for homes with small children. The AKC
describes the breed as, "A graceful, alert, swift-moving little dog with saucy expression, compact, and
with terrier-like qualities of temperament." The breed tends to be fiercely loyal to one particular owner
and in some cases may become over protective of the person, especially around other people or
animals, but may be attached to more.[citation needed] They do not always get along with other breeds,
and tend to have a "clannish" nature, often preferring the companionship of other Chihuahuas over
other dogs. These traits generally make them unsuitable for households with children that are not patient
and calm.  Although some chihuahuas do well with children, one must train their chihuahua by
introducing them to children at an early age.[citation needed] Chihuahua's have a little quirk of "denning"
themselves. Several new Chihuahua owners have been taken aback, when their little dogs start
burrowing themselves in everything from pillows, clothes hampers, and blankets. These little creatures
love their dens. You'll often find them under the covers in the beds right at the bottom of the bed, deep in
the dark and safety of what they believe is their den. It's a very noteworthy quirk of the breed, as often
with new owners, they can accidentally sit or lean onto these fragile little creatures. This den behaviour is
believe to have come from the supposition of Chihuahua's being descended from the inbreeding of wild
desert fox breeds in Mexico

Chihuahua (Comprehensive Owner's Guide)
The affectionate and beguiling Chihuahua
holds two distinctions among pure-bred dogs:
he is the smallest and the longest lived dog in
the world. Weighing as little as one pound, the
Chihuahua often enjoys good health until the
age of twenty years. Many characteristics
endear the Chihuahua to his millions of fans
throughout the world. The breed is prized for
its intelligence, its extreme devotion to its
mistress or master, its saucy expression and
its outgoing personality. Whether wearing a
glossy smooth coat or a soft and wavy long
coat, the Chihuahua is an attractive and alert
companion for any dog lover who dares to
open his heart to this irresistible toy dog.

This book provides the much-needed factual
information about Chihuahuas and their
ancestry in Mexico and beyond,
characteristics and standard, as well as puppy
selection, feeding, training, preventative
health care and behavior of the breed. The
new owner will welcome advice about puppy-
proofing the home, preparing for the pup’s
arrival, housebreaking and preventing puppy
problems. In addition to an authoritative,
comprehensive text written by breeder
Barbara J. Andrews, this book presents over
135 photographs in full color, which prove to
be as informative as they are attractive.
