Chihuahua by Barbara J. Andrews

The affectionate and beguiling Chihuahua holds two distinctions among pure-bred dogs: he is the smallest and the longest lived dog in the world. Weighing as little as one pound, the Chihuahua often enjoys good health until the age of twenty years. Many characteristics endear the Chihuahua to his millions of fans throughout the world. The breed is prized for its intelligence, its extreme devotion to its mistress or master, its saucy expression and its outgoing personality. Whether wearing a glossy smooth coat or a soft and wavy long coat, the Chihuahua is an attractive and alert companion for any dog lover who dares to open his heart to this irresistible toy dog. This book provides the much-needed factual information about Chihuahuas and their ancestry in Mexico and beyond, characteristics and standard, as well as puppy selection, feeding, training, preventative health care and behavior of the breed. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup's arrival, housebreaking and preventing puppy problems. In addition to an authoritative, comprehensive text written by breeder Barbara J. Andrews, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive.
