“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.
many new chihuahua owners are amazed the first time they hear the sounds of their chihuahua enjoying a deep, luxurious sleep. no need to panic, it’s perfectly normal and characteristic of the breed. in fact, chihuahuas also make snorting and grunting noises when they are playing or just investigating a new smell. this is also perfectly normal.
snoring is something chihuahua’s do when they are relaxed and comfortable. smile and enjoy.
Haha! Looked this up while my chi was snoring on the sofa next to me. I watched the video, and the audio came through a speaker. Really freaked my little Pinto out! She stopped snoring, but went right back to sleep when audio was off.
My Chihuahua is the same. Point the phone in his direction for a snap shot and he turns away as if by magic but boy, he can snore some.
I looked this up because my chihuahuas snore all the time……and if I do anything in an attempt to film/record it.. they wake up. I was curious if anyone had footage lol. I have a bro/sis chihuahua duo. The male snores up a storm and the female has the greatest smile I have seen on any dog EVER… they don’t perform for cameras. They seem to know shit, I pull out my phone and they turn all charm off completely. Then again I do something similar
