"One of the few books I have read that is clear and straight to the point about Chihuahuas. Talking from experience, Chihuahuas can be a high maintenance breed and often stubborn to train (they are also the most loving breed) and this book is exactly what was needed out there. Great book" Emma Robertson, Chihuahua owner
"The guidance in this book has helped me further develop my knowledge and love of the Chihuahua breed. I recommend this book to all who are looking to own a Chihuahua, new and experienced owners." Claire Borg, Chihuahua owner

Given their small size, Chihuahuas are a surprisingly entertaining dog - largely because they don't realize just how small they are. They tend to be wary of strangers, but when it comes to their family, they are one of the most loyal breeds. They love their families and want to protect them just as much as any large breed. Chihuahuas are not for everyone, but if you bring one into your home, you will have a dog that will love you unconditionally.
