The Chihuahua is currently along the most popular breeds of dog in the UK, ranking inside the Top 10 in our own lists for popularity among all the breed variations.
The Chihuahua tends to cost in the region of £500 for a non KC registered variety and up to £700 for a KC registered dog, so if you see chihuahua puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind for a non-KC registered animal.
A Chihuahua is expected to live between 10-18 years on average, is usually around 20cm in height and generally weighs in at between 2-3kg.
Chihuahuas are moderately easy to train, have above average intelligence, are not especially good with children and require only a small amount of exercise to stay satisfied. They delight in company and do not like being left alone for any more than short periods of time.
Here at Hoobynoo, the Chihuahua is among our Top 10 most requested personalisations for dog tags. Our personalised dog id tags featuring Chihuahuas remained in our UK Top 10 for most of 2018. Our vast selection of Chihuahua accessories can be found HERE.
Every dog while in a public place should wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on the collar or on a plate or badge attached to it.
