Teacup Chihuahua – Breed Information, Pictures and How to Take Care?

Breed Information

The Chihuahua is one of the oldest and smallest known dog breeds. Their engaging temperament, cuteness and affectionate nature make them popular pets especially for urban or apartment life.

The only characteristic that makes a Teacup Chihuahua different from other Chihuahuas is its size.
