Where Do You Find a Chihuahua?
Chihuahuas are great dogs. First of all, before you get one, you really need to read up on the breed. They are a very unique breed and are more bonded with adults than children. There are many sites on the internet as well that can help you decide if a chihuahua is the right breed for you. But let's say that you have already made up your mind that you do want one. Where do you start looking? Pet shops are normally not a good place in which to start. Where else can you find one? Alot of people place them in the newspaper ads but you must be very careful here as well. Some people ask around their friends or others who have a chihuahua to see where they recommend, also which can be very helpful. Remember to make a checklist of things to ask the owner, or breeder about the dog. Make sure they are alert, their eyes are clean and clear, observe how they interact with the other dogs and people around them. Lastly, there are many places where you can go to adopt a chihuahua. http://www.chihuahua-rescue.com is a place where you can start looking as well. Many of the rescue or adoption sites have already had a vet check on these dogs and shots given. Good luck in finding your new precious pet, as they will be in your lives a good long time. Most chis live around 15-18 years.
