Chihuahuas are known as the smallest breed originating in Mexico. They are a very loyal little companion that loves to be pampered. They can become fiercely protective of their owner, therefore; Chihuahus are generally not suitable for a home with young children.
According to the breed standard, Chihuahuas should mature at 6 pounds or less and are usually 6 to 10 inches tall.
At Taylorside, we have 6 unregistered Chihuhuas; 4 females and 2 males. They range in weight from 2.8 pounds to 4.9 pounds so their offspring are often very small as well.
ChiWeenies are the cross between Chihuahua and Mini Dachshund. They have slightly longer legs and a shorter back than the Dachshund. ChiWeenies generally have a very sweet temperament. We occasionally have ChiWeenie puppies for sale.
