When it comes to measuring the popularity of various dog breeds in America, few rival the Teacup Chihuahua when you consider its impact on pop culture, celebrity appeal and mainstream adoration by average folks in this country. They have had this remarkability to crossover into many different aspects of American life. Whereas some dog breeds might be seen as geared towards hoity-toity upper class snobs and elite and some might be unmistakably considered working class, Chihuahuas fascinate and appeal to nearly everyone in some way.
Perhaps, this is due to the fact that they do not necessarily look like a man’s dog nor are they really considered a chick’s dog, either. Even though they are tiny, Chihuahuas and teacups still bark in a manner that is cute, but not necessarily yappy. And they can be cuddly and energetically playful appealing to males and females, young and old.
The rise in popularity is a pretty fascinating story for a breed that may have evolved from the Techichi dog breed and ultimately cultivated into the breed found near the Texas border in Chihuahua, Mexico in 1884. A common theory is that an unknown hairless breed was brought over to North America by way of Asia to Alaska along a land bridge where the Bering Strait is now. Look at them now!
Teacup Chihuahuas vs Regular Chihuahuas
Teacup Chihuahuas are not a different and distinctly separate breed set apart from regular old Chihuahuas. Teacups are the same breed – just smaller.
Therefore, even though this site is geared towards miniature Chihuahuas and much of the information presented will be focused on these little guys, we will obviously talk about Chihuahuas in general to further the understanding of the breed.
You can’t fully understand and appreciate teacup Chihuahuas and their unique issues without being well versed in the personality, characteristics and attributes of the Chihuahua breed.
