So we have come up with a guide that will tell you everything you need to know about Chihuahuas.

History

The origin of the Chihuahua is basically from Mexico, where they can be easily found in every other house.

Both of these breeds look alike and in fact, the Tenchichi breed was famous amongst Toltecs.

It is believed that the Chihuahua breed is descendent of another breed of dog which was known as Tenchichi. Both of these breeds look alike and in fact, the Tenchichi breed was famous amongst Toltecs.

The Chihuahua breed got its name very late when the breed’s specimens were found in the state Chihuahua. It is believed that people used to pet Chihuahua during the 19th century.

Body Type

Usually, people find all Chihuahuas same, but that’s not really true. Chihuahua comes in two different types. One is long haired and the other type is smooth and short haired. There is not much variety in the color and body type, of the breed which makes the breed identical.

But what about deer-head Chihuahua?

When we hear the name “Dear-head”, it actually doesn’t make sense or we can’t process the picture of a dog with a head shaped like a deer. But it is actually just the same as a regular Chihuahua.

Physical Traits

The Chihuahua is genetically small breed so it is evident that if it is a deer-head Chihuahua then it is also small in size. The breed can grow up to a size of 15 inches when the average maximum size of the breed is just 12 inches. Its size is what makes the dog easier to travel with.

Apart from that, a deer-head Chihuahua weighs around 10 pounds which is pretty light. Since they are small creatures and their small size makes it easy to guess that they are light in weight. But this deer-head Chihuahua breed is a little bigger and heavier than the apple head Chihuahua who are relatives to them.

Just like a regular Chihuahua, Deer-head Chihuahua also has two types of coats. One is long haired and other is short haired. Usually, many people prefer the short haired ones because of their easy maintenance, but it does not make them any better than the long-haired ones. In fact, both of these species are fun to be with and have their own pros and cons like a short haired one catch cold very fast and on the other hand the long-haired one’s hair are hard to maintain. But apart from that, you can take some precautions and make your experience with these dogs amazing.

Apart from having different body hair, they have one thing in common and that is hair around the ears. Yes, they have the bushy kind of hair around their ear, which gives them an adorable look and also protect their ears from external damage.

Lifespan

This small breed of dog has a shockingly long lifespan. A deer head Chihuahua can live up to 20 years of age, which is pretty unusual among dogs. But it is normal for small sized dogs as large sized dogs to have a smaller lifespan as compared to small sized dogs.

But this doesn’t mean that they age well. A Chihuahua might live a long life and become an important part of your life and if taken care of can exceed the life expectancy of 20 years, but a Chihuahua can become extremely sensitive towards any physical damage with age. The older a Chihuahua gets, the more it gets prone to bodily damage like fracture of bones or ribs just by falling from a couch. So if a Chihuahua gets old, extreme care should be taken. But apart from that, they are a very healthy breed and don’t get sick that easily. That is the reason why they live a longer life. They are very tough when it comes to sickness. Also, they are far healthier than apple head Chihuahuas.

Temperament

They are extremely loyal dogs and no matter what happens, they will love you with all their heart. They also get sad when they are not pampered or not given much attention which makes them more adorable.

Conclusion

If you need a loyal and beautiful dog for your family, then a deer head Chihuahua is perfect for you. This dog will change your life in a different way which you would have never thought of. No matter how old you are, once you get this dog you will feel very glad of owning it.
