Book Description: With ... their apple heads, big round eyes, large pointy ears, saucy expressions, and feisty dispositions, Chihuahuas are one of the most beloved breeds of toy dogs in the world. But these frisky little dogs aren t for everyone. Consummate lap dogs, they thrive on attention and constant contact with their owners, and are miserable when left alone.

    THE BEST BOOK...A MUST HAVE!

    This book is the best I have ever read reguardung Chihushuas. I was debating if I wanted a dog or not and THIS book helped me to understand what is required and needed to have and maintain a great Chihuahua. It answered my questions and some I didn't ever know to ask. But what really helped was the easy to follow, to understand and to read the layout of this book.
