Keep your Chi healthy, feed them only a couple small meals a day and restrict the goodies and table scraps.

Another Chihuahua fact is they’re quite content living indoors, and they don't like cold. Read about Chihuahua Care

They get plenty of activity right in their own home. That makes them perfect for the elderly and health-challenged individuals or those who may live in an apartment.

They’re also super watch dogs, they'd think nothing of challenging an intruder, they don’t believe they are the smallest dog in the world.
