Just wondering if anyone else here has had trouble with a chihuahua being pretty much terrified of new people.
It takes my chi 2-3 days to decide she likes someone, and then she adores them. But until that point, she hides under the couch or in her crate or anywhere she can fit.
She is wonderful and smart other than this, I just was wondering if it was common for chihuahuas to be this way. My girl is 7.5 months old and I got her when she was 4.5 months old. She came from a wonderful breeder that I trust, and my puppy was handled daily by new people so why is she so scared and will she grow out of it?
Part of me doesn't care...she likes me best! but I also think feeling scared all the time when there is someone new is horrible!
