Meet Mimi ! Did you know that no one knows exactly where the Chihuahua came from? The breed's ancestors are likely the Techichi, a small breed of dog that lived with the Mayans and Toltecs as far back as 8 A.D. So they are not necessarily native to Mexico ! Chihuahua power!

Long and short haired chihuahuas can come out in the same litter.

Chihuahua are born with a hole in their skull which makes them very vulnerable. It may or may not fuse together while they grow up.
