They are small size dogs with characteristics of both the parent breeds. These dogs are alert, courageous, loyal, social, intelligent and responsive. They are good family dogs.
They are found in different colours. Most common colours are red, blue, brown, gray, red, silver and white.
These dogs usually have long and silky coat. They are average shedders and would require normal grooming.
They inherit the best of their parent breeds when it comes to being a family pet. Their alertness and courage make them very good watchdogs. The cheerful instincts make them loveable and their even temperament is ideal for family pets. They are very good companion dogs for adults and older children; however the Chihuahuas are not known for their compatibility with small children so caution must be exercised when they are around small children.
