nadia alterio, the founder and editor in chief of the famous chihuahua legacy

editor founder famous chihuahua

who am i? it’s simple, a smart woman who loves her chihuahua.  teaka is the embodiment of what all dog lovers share in a relationship with their pet, a source of unconditional love, happiness and a little buddy that will always make you smile.

i aim to make the famous chihuahua brand a household name.  it will become synonymous with the breed itself because in my eyes, all chihuahuas are famous.  every chihuahua offers the kind of love, innocence and acceptance that in many cases only people with pets will experience.

chihuahuas are the smallest of the dog breed and within these precious little creatures lies the biggest hearts known to mankind.  teaka is flawless, a symbol of hope and has been there for me through some very challenging life events.  it is with gratitude that i do what i can through the influence of famous chihuahua to honor what she represents to chihuahua lovers worldwide.

nadia and teaka, companions for life

over the years i have received thousands of emails.  i want to thank everyone who submits their chihuahua pictures and stories.  it is not only a privilege, but a source of great joy to be able to share in the happiness of others by featuring their chihuahuas.  every chihuahua is unique and special in their own way and deserves a famous chihuahua dog shirt. 

please keep the emails coming, i read every one of them and will continue to do my best to feature as many chihuahuas as i can.
