Welcome to our Chihuahua puppy names page. These small pooches, as pups, tend to be very high-energy pets but, upon entering mid-life or their elder years, the level of energy may wane significantly. If you properly care for the health of your short-haired pup, you’ll have a wonderful, loving companion for years to come. Take care that he or she does not get in fights with larger dogs because your Chihuahua can be seriously injured; they will take on big dogs, apparently believing they're just as big.
This breed is considered to be “toy” sized, with a body a bit longer than the pooch’s height. With an apple-shaped skull, they are born with soft spot atop the head, just like humans, which must be protected from injury and which should close up as the canine grows. Your companion will have huge eyes which will remain large all its life, giving it the expressiveness these pets are known for. Your pet’s long tail will curve over its back, while helps balance the very big ears and create that darling, cute appearance which makes this breed so popular.
The nickname “Chi” is often applied to this breed especially among those who are fans of the breed. Chi’s are available with short or long coats, the longer haired coats being wavy and silky in most cases. Numerous color combination's are available including silver, sand, steel, fawn, black and tan Doberman-like coloring and patches of color called parti-color besides the common black, white, and black and white combination's.
