HISTORY OF THE CHIHUAHUA

It has been firmly established that the Chihuahua dates back to the Toltec period. Proof of this exists today in the carvings of stone, in a Monastery, located on the highway between Mexico City and Pueblo. The Monastery was constructed around 1530 from the material of the ancient pyramids erected by the Toltecs.

The Aztecs, conquerors of the Toltecs, kept many of the little dogs as pets and companions, and they were reguarded highly in the religious rites of their day.

Around 1850, American tourists, to Mexico, began to take an interest in the Chihuahua, and quite a number of them were brought to the United States. The breed continued to grow in popularity, and in 1923, the Chihuahua Club of America was formed.

BREEDER’S REMARK:

I have read, and been told by other Chihuahua breeders, a little more information on the Chihuahua and their temperment.

I would like to pass this on to you:

Once the Chihuahua was captured by the Aztecs, they started breeding them as Lap-Protection Gaurd Dogs for the Ladys of The Court.

Their job was to bite or ward off anyone reaching for the Lady and they took their job very seriously; This is why some Chihuahuas are hand shy and will growl nip or bite anyone too close or reaching for their "person". Some Chi's of today still carry this trait. As a result, Chihuahuas are not the best choice as children’s pets.

Chihuahuas have been known to live as long as 20 years, however the usual life expectancy is about 12 to 15 years, so your new pet should be with you for a long time.

Thank you for concidering one of my Chi babies for your new family member.
