Chihuahuas for Dummies

With their apple heads, big round eyes, large pointy ears, saucy expressions, and feisty dispositions, Chihuahuas are one of the most beloved breeds of toy dogs in the world. But these frisky little dogs aren’t for everyone. Consummate lap dogs, they thrive on attention and constant contact with their owners, and are miserable when left alone.

This was a great book and had exactly the information I wanted to find.

My mother-in-law recently and suddenly passed away and my H and I are the only family members who want her 7 year old Chihuahua, Mia. My husband has met Mia several times on visits and says she is sweet and adorable, so we will give her a good home.

In preparation before we travel from Texas to N. Carolina to get our new pet, I downloaded this book and read most of it in a short time.

I appreciate the information about the differences in this breed and others that I have owned. Currently I have a border collie/shepherd mix (who mostly sleeps but is a sweetie, too). Keeping a toy dog will be very different than the larger dogs we have always owned before!

There is a lot of information in this book, but the author doesn’t weigh you down with too many arcane facts that you don’t need to be a basic pet owner. But, there is information on basic care and what type of personality these dogs have.

I am thinking my biggest task will be keeping the dog’s weight down to 4 pounds… my other dog weighs 50 pounds. 😉

really liked it

This book was pretty interesting. But a lot of it dealt with the “before you get” the dog. By the time I read this I’d had the dog for 5 months so a lot of it didn’t apply to me anymore. There were some game ideas that I might try with my little guy, but other then that nothing much useful for me. In fact a lot of the “temperament” that the author talks about and the “norm” for Chihuahua’s doesn’t fit my puppy AT ALL lol. He’s like the opposite of everything (he loves going for long walks, etc e

For someone who doesn’t already know anything about dogs, or have a dog but is thinking about getting one, or perhaps just got one, I think it would be very useful.
