Over the years, Chihuahuas have found their way into the hearts and homes of many people around the world. The breed originated in Mexico, where they have always been highly prized for their cuteness, intelligence, and the fact that these tiny characters think they are bigger than they actually are. One thing a Chihuahua is not is a pure lap dog. These little dogs are bursting with energy and character, and are great fun to share a home with. They are extremely brave and will push through no matter what. They are also loyal and affectionate characters who like nothing better than to spend as much time as possible with their owners, which means Chihuahuas can"t stand being left alone for long periods of time.
