Should I research anything about Chihuahua puppies for sale?
You fell in love with the tiny Chihuahua and its spunky personality. Now, you want to make sure you know what to look for before buying Chihuahua puppies for sale. To buy a puppy that is right for your family, you should:
- Decide whether you want to groom your dog every day. Long haired Chihuahuas require much more grooming than short-haired dogs.
- Ask the breeder about the health of your puppy's parents. Chihuahuas can have eye and heart problems. As long as your dog doesn't have a hereditary defect and is cared for properly, it can live for as long as 18 years.
- Consider the age of younger family members. While Chihuahuas are affectionate and loving dogs, they will become nippy if they are handled too roughly. Young children often don't realize they are hurting these delicate little dogs when they play with them.
- Think about how tolerant your family is to noise. These tiny creatures are barkers and can create quite a racket if they decide to defend your home from guests during a party. They will also look out the window and bark at everything that passes by, from cats to delivery men.
