The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is named for the Chihuahua region in Mexico.

Despite appearances, these dogs are swift-moving and are not intimidated by larger dogs. There outgoing, spirited and intelligent personality makes them wonderful household companions. They are neither snappy or withdrawn and make good watchdogs.

Prized for their personality and loyalty, they are thought to be descendants of an ancient, similar, but slightly larger breed associated with royalty in Aztec civilizations known as the Techichi. They are the oldest canine breed in North America
