The history of the Chihuahua is uncertain, but many believe the breed came from Chihuahua, Mexico. There is evidence that points to a tiny dog that dates back to the 9th century. Artwork of this dog has shown up in artifacts, and many believe the Chihuahua is derived from the Techichi based on the resemblance of the two. The Techichi was a small silent dog found in Mexico that many stone carvings are based on from ancient Mexico.
In the 1800s, in Chihuahua, Mexico, a series of ruins were found of a canine that is thought to have originated from the ancestors of the Chihuahua breed. Some were found in human graves, based on the belief that the sins of a human would transfer to the dog and evil would be thwarted. Chihuahuas were thought to be the path to the afterlife. They could fight off evil spirits and guide the soul through the underworld.
Around the time of the 1850s, the Chihuahua was first brought to the U.S. from Mexico. Only the strongest survived the trip and helped to establish the breed in America. They were both long and short haired varieties of the breed, and they became a popular pet for families.
The breed as it stands today is very different from its ancestors that were brought over from Mexico. They are highly-alert dogs with an intelligent nature. They prefer the companionship of people or dogs of their own breed. This made for an ideal pet for owners to love and the breed grew in popularity quickly.
The first registered Chihuahua was a dog by the name of Midget. Midget along with three others were entered into the American Kennel Club records in 1904. By 1915, a total of 30 Chihuahuas was registered in the U.S. This number grew quickly, and over 25,000 were registered by the 70s.
Today, the Chihuahua breed enjoys great popularity with more than 20,000 dogs registered each year. Chihuahuas are the oldest dog breed in the U.S. and are loved by their owners because of their affectionate nature and constant companionship.
Chihuahuas were recognized by the AKC in 1904.
The popularity of the Chihuahua is on a steady pace. It is the 30th most popular breed, and with it loveable characteristics it has been a favorite of families for many years. This little lap dog is the perfect companion for older adults and families with older children as they have a ferocious bark but not a lot of bite.
