what exactly does the term teacup chihuahua mean and is it a legitimate term for characterizing a specific type of chihuahua? much controversy exists over this term, so let’s get the chihuahua facts!
the term teacup chihuahua is mainly an american term. it’s often used to refer to the size of a chihuahua and shouldn’t be used to categorize a specific type of chihuahua as you would reference a short-haired vs a long-haired chihuahua or a deerhead chihuahua vs an applehead chihuahua.
most chihuahua puppies are born teacup-sized, but they usually grow out of it. it is important to note that chihuahuas of this size must be handled delicately and dressed accordingly with the proper chihuahua clothes to keep them warm and properly shielded.
“teaka the famous chihuahua snoozing – how can something so small snore so loud!”
snoring is a common occurrence in chihuahuas and has nothing to do with a collapsed trachea. it is attributed to their short muzzle and sometimes it is loud enough to wake the house up. it can be incredibly funny when you have visitors as no one can believe that such a small dog can make that much noise.
what exactly are merle chihuahuas?
merle chihuahuas are said to be the latest ‘style’ or ‘designer color’ to gain popularity within chihuahua breeding during the past 15 years, but due to potential health problems, merle chihuahuas are rarely mentioned in credible books about genetic coloring patterns of the breed.
what exactly is a blue chihuahua and what makes a blue chihuahua puppy different from other chihuahua puppies? all chihuahuas are special and unique in their own way, but blue chihuahuas are best described as a chihuahua puppy that is bred to have a dull silver-grey-coat with a tinge of blue.
a blue chihuahua is rare and can be an apple head chihuahua or a deerhead chihuahua and is produced from mating a black and tan chihuahua, a chocolate, or even a fawn parent, but the parents must carry the recessive blue gene in their line of heritage. the blue in a blue chihuahua can also be part of a merle patterned – tri-colored or multicolored coat.
did you know that owning a chihuahua can heal you of depression and other stress-related disorders? that heart attack patients with chihuahuas are 8 times more likely to be alive a year later than those without a chihuahua? and that children exposed to chihuahuas during the first year of life have fewer allergies and less asthma?
