Meet the Smooth Coat Chihuahua 

The Chihuahua (short coat) is a small, stocky dog with a rounded skull (defined as ‘apple head’ or ‘apple-dome’ by dog breed registries), short muscular legs, and large erect ears that sit high on the head. Chihuahua’s can also have deer-shaped heads however, the apple shape is preferred under the Kennel Club breed standard. Interestingly, ‘apple head’ Chihuahua’s are the only dogs born with incomplete skulls, as they have soft areas (also known as Moleras) where the bones have not fully fused together. Short-haired Chihuahua’s are slightly longer than they are tall, and have medium-length tails that sit high up on the back. These dogs also have large rounded eyes that are usually dark in colour, and short, pointed muzzles with well-defined jawlines. They tend to hold their necks slightly arched and their lean shoulders sit well back on the body, with their front legs positioned well under the chest. This allows for a wide range of movement and flexibility.

A short-haired Chihuahua’s coat is smooth and lies close to the body. Coats can come in a range of colours including chocolate, blue sable, cream, tri-colour, and white.

The short-haired Chihuahua is considered to be the smallest dog breed in the world, with a maximum weight of 2.7kg and reaching heights of no more than 23cm.

Chihuahua Temperament (Short Coat)

The short-haired Chihuahua is a big personality in a small package! They are known to be highly devoted to their owners but can become slightly aggressive and overprotective if they are not trained properly from a young age. They are fast, agile, and alert little dogs, that have no problem standing up for themselves when they need to. These dogs do not realise they are small! Short-haired Chihuahua’s love to play games such as fetch and are generally easy to train due to their high intelligence. They will happily curl up on the laps of their favourite people on occasion however, they are not considered to be lapdogs. Short-haired Chihuahua’s are rambunctious and energetic so they need plenty of stimulation to remain happy.

Short-haired Chihuahua’s can be nervous around strangers and new environments, often resorting to defensive tactics when they feel uneasy. But with appropriate training and commitment from their owners, these spirited little dogs can become lifelong affectionate companions.

However, they may not be suitable for households with shy cat breeds or other small companion animals that may not be able to handle a Chihuahua’s bouncy temperament! Short-haired Chihuahua’s love the attention they receive from older children but you must be careful with young children as Chihuahua’s have been known to lash out when play gets too rough.

Short-haired Chihuahuas adapt well to a range of home environments from large houses to small apartments.

Is a Short-haired Chihuahua the right pet for me?
Short-haired Chihuahua’s are sweet, devoted, and lively companions which makes them the perfect pets for families with older children. However, they are not best suited to households with young children as they can be quite short-tempered. They get on well with other dogs but may not be the best choice for you if you have smaller, shyer pets due to the rambunctious personality of Chihuahua’s. They form very strong bonds with their owners, often attaching to one or two members of the family, and love to receive attention any time of day! Despite their small size, these dogs have huge personalities! They are confident and playful which has made them popular pets worldwide. They are also highly intelligent so they love the mental stimulation that comes with clicker training and learning fun games such as fetch. Short-haired Chihuahuas are generally very adaptable so will do just as well in a small apartment as they would in a large house. Because of their small size, they only require a one-hour walk daily.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
At The Pedigree Paws, we pride ourselves on being transparent, which has helped us to build up complete trust with all of our customers. We work with only the best breeders in the UK and Europe, so you will know you are buying a healthy puppy if you purchase from us. Already, we have integrated hundreds of puppies and kittens into loving forever homes. Feel free to read our testimonials on our website to see our success stories for yourself.
Are Short-haired Chihuahua puppies from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
All of our puppies are health checked by a licensed vet before moving on to their forever homes. We also ensure all our puppies are fully vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped so you don’t have to worry about it! Short-haired Chihuahuas are generally a very healthy breed. However, like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to developing a number of health issues. So here At The Pedigree Paws, 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 cause health conditions to develop later in life.
Can I see the parents of a Short-haired Chihuahua puppy?
Yes, of course. We will arrange a video call between you and the breeder to show you the puppies with their mother or both parents.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of a Short-haired Chihuahua puppy?
Yes, you will. All our puppies come with internationally recognised pedigree documents such as KC, FCI, and AKC.
Do Short-haired Chihuahua puppies from The Pedigree Paws come from good breeders?
The Pedigree Paws only offers puppies from the best breeders in the industry who adhere to the strict breeding and animal welfare policies set by internationally recognised welfare organizations. Our breeders are passionate about animal welfare and ensure that all of their puppies are well-cared for. We also ensure that all our breeders raise their puppies in family home environments rather than commercial breeding facilities. This process reassures YOU that you are purchasing a puppy who has been well socialised, appropriately weaned, and loved.
When can I receive my Short-haired Chihuahua?
We know you will be eager to meet your new canine companion. However, we prefer all our puppies to stay with their mothers until they are at least 10-13 weeks old, as early weaning can be detrimental to a puppies’ health and development. It is worth noting that this is only a guide, so you will have the opportunity to discuss the exact time scale with the breeder.
How can I help settle my Short-haired Chihuahua into their new home?
Short-haired Chihuahuas can be nervous in new environments. So, you must allow your new puppy the time he needs to settle into his new home, and provide plenty of reassurance so he feels safe and secure. Here are a few more ways you can help your short-haired Chihuahua to adapt to his new home: 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 new puppy to feel safe. It is also a good idea to set up a comfortable bedding area in a quiet area of your home for him to retreat to when things get a bit much! Begin potty training right away 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. 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. Introduce family members and other pets slowly so your Chihuahua puppy does not feel overwhelmed.
