Meet the Long-haired Chihuahua

The long-haired Chihuahua is a small, compact breed with lean shoulders, short muscular legs, and a medium-length tail that flares out high above the back. Their front legs are straight and positioned well under the chest which allows for a lot of flexibility and movement. The long-haired Chihuahua has a well-rounded head with large, pointed ears that sit at an angle of around 45 degrees to the skull. They have short but slightly pointed muzzles and large round eyes set wide apart on the head. Their eyes are usually dark or ruby coloured but lighter colours are accepted as a breed standard. These dogs can weigh anything between 1.3-2.7kg and can reach heights of up to 23cm.

The long-haired Chihuahua boasts a medium-length, wavy coat with a natural sheen. The coat can come in a range of colours including black, tan, cream, gold, and sable. These dogs have prominent ear tufts that should drop below the ears, as well as a substantial ruff that engulfs the neck and chest. Their tails are sickle-shaped, pointing upwards and then fluffing out at the ends. Some long-haired Chihuahuas have a slight curl in their tails.

Long-haired Chihuahua Temperament

The long-haired Chihuahua is known to be fiercely loyal to its owners, often bonding strongly to one or two members of the family. They love to curl up on their owners' laps but can become feisty and protective when strangers are around. For this reason, Chihuahuas must be socialised early on to prevent any unwanted guard-like behaviours from developing. Saying that, these dogs are a joy to be around due to their highly playful natures and clownish personalities. You will never be bored with a Chihuahua in your home! They particularly love to dive under the covers with you at bedtime, so be prepared for the end of your bed to be occupied by your miniature canine companion! Long-haired Chihuahuas are also incredibly curious animals and are known to be a very intelligent breed that is always eager to please. So, they will love the attention that comes from clicker training and learning new commands.

Chihuahuas can be fairly yappy and noisy, especially around strangers, so you will need to get a handle on this behaviour early on to prevent it from escalating. These dogs generally get along well with other dogs but may clash with quiet cat breeds or smaller pets due to their rambunctious personalities! If you commit yourself to ensuring your long-haired Chihuahua is well-trained and obedient, you are sure to have a loving companion for years to come.

10 Reasons to Add a Long-haired Chihuahua to your Family

1. They are loyal: You will be hard pushed to find a dog more devoted to you than a Chihuahua! These dogs form very strong bonds with their owners and will happily curl up with you any chance they get.

2. They are highly intelligent: Long-haired Chihuahuas love to please their owners. This trait, coupled with their high intelligence, makes them very easy to train. They particularly enjoy learning games such as fetch.

3. They are adaptable: All these dogs crave is love! So, they are just as happy to live in an apartment as they are living in a big house, as long as they get plenty of attention.

4. They do not require much exercise: Due to their compact bodies and short legs, these dogs only require one hour of walking per day. Saying that, you should ensure you provide them with plenty of mental stimulation to keep them entertained.

5. They are chatty: If you are looking for an interactive companion that you can have a conversation with at the end of a long day, then the Chihuahua is the breed for you! These dogs love to chat with their owners and shower them with affection.

9. They get along well with older children: Long-haired Chihuahuas are devoted companions that love to receive fuss from their families. Older children will love the boundless energy that Chihuahuas possess. However, these dogs are not the best option for families with small children as they are known to have short tempers.

10. They are protective of their families: Despite their small size, long-haired Chihuahuas are known to be incredibly protective of their owners. They have even been used as guard dogs! You can be certain that your chihuahua will alert you to any potential dangers and will ensure that you are well cared for at all times!

Best Homes for Long-haired Chihuahuas

Due to their small size, long-haired Chihuahuas can happily live in a range of environments, from apartments to houses with large gardens. They are best suited to households where someone is home for most of the day as these attentive dogs do not do well when left alone for long periods. They get along well with older children but shouldn’t be trusted with younger children as they may lash out if play gets a little too rough. These dogs can get along well with other dogs if they are introduced slowly.

Long-haired Chihuahuas are lively, fun, companions that are incredibly loving. They can develop unwanted behaviours such as excessive barking if not trained properly. So, ensure you have the time to devote to your little bundle of joy!

Check out our testimonials to see for yourself.
Are Long-haired Chihuahua puppies from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Yes, absolutely! All of our puppies are given a thorough health check by a licensed vet before moving on to their forever homes. In addition, we ensure all our puppies are fully vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. Long-haired Chihuahuas are known to be susceptible to developing certain health conditions, particularly patella luxation and hydrocephalus (fluid build-up in the skull). For this reason, we ensure all of our puppies come from parents that have been DNA checked. We also DNA test the puppies to ensure they do not have any genetic mutations that may predispose them to health conditions. If no issues are present, you will know that your long-haired Chihuahua is unlikely to develop any significant health problems during its life.
Can I see the parents of a long-haired Chihuahua puppy?
Yes, we recommend that you do! We can arrange a video call between you and the breeder to show you the puppies with their mother or both parents (depending on the breeder).
Will I receive the pedigree documents of a long-haired Chihuahua puppy?
Yes, of course. All our puppies come with internationally recognised pedigree documents such as KC, FCI, and AKC. The exact registration will depend on the location of the breeder.
Do long-haired Chihuahua puppies from The Pedigree Paws come from good breeders?
The Pedigree Paws only offers puppies from the very best breeders in the industry who adhere to the strict breeding and animal welfare policies set by internationally recognised welfare organizations. Our breeders love their animals and work hard to protect their health and wellbeing. We also ensure that all our puppies are raised in family home environments rather than commercial breeding facilities. This process reassures YOU that you are purchasing a puppy who has been well socialised and has received all the love and care required for it to grow into a devoted, healthy companion.
When can I receive my long-haired Chihuahua?
So, you have just purchased a new puppy – how exciting! We know you will be eager to meet your new canine companion as soon as possible. However, it is important to note that early weaning can be incredibly detrimental to the development and health of a puppy. So, we prefer all our puppies to stay with their parents, brothers, and sisters until they are 10-13 weeks old. This is only a guide though, and you can discuss the exact timescale with the breeder.
How can I help settle my long-haired Chihuahua into their new home?
Long-haired Chihuahuas are incredibly affectionate and loving companions. However, they can be nervous and shy in new environments. For this reason, you must allow your new puppy the time he needs to settle into his new home, and provide plenty of reassurance during the process. Here are a few more ways you can help your long-haired Chihuahua to adapt to his new home: Firstly, we recommend that you ask the breeder to send your puppy along with a towel or blanket with their mother's scent. This will help your puppy to feel secure in a new environment. You should also set up a comfortable bedding area in a quiet area of your home as young puppies can sleep for up to 19 hours a day! Only allow your new puppy access to one room of the house at a time. Once your puppy appears comfortable, you can then slowly introduce them to other parts of the home under supervision. Begin potty training from the beginning and use a reward-based system to reassure your puppy that he is doing the right thing. It is important to be patient during this process, and expect a couple of accidents along the way. Introduce family members and other pets slowly so your puppy has time to adjust.
