A Look at Teacup Chihuahuas

June 26, 2012

Known for their small size, Teacup Chihuahuas feature a maximum height of 9 inches and an average weight of 5 to 7 pounds, and they tend to live for between 15 and 18 years. Recognizable for cocked ears and a curled tail, these dogs are popular apartment dogs due to their small size and easy maintenance. A short-coated animal, Teacup Chihuahuas enjoy warm weather climates and do not need regular grooming.

Teacup Chihuahuas are considered decent watchdogs due to their regular alertness, but they bark regularly, which some owners might find problematic. Possessing a sensitive temperament and hyperactive demeanor, people should avoid harshness when training them. Additionally, these dogs might suffer from bladder stones, heart ailments, arthritis, and tracheal disorders.
