Default Do chihuahuas chill out as they get older?

Our little guy is 8 months...and he can be a nightmare at times. It can annoy me a lot. He constantly follows my fiancé around....when ever we come home he goes mental...

Will he chill out?

Not really, that what you are describing is normal chi charactistics. We love them because they are so devoted and follow us around. They are a companion breed, they want to be always by their humans. And he's so happy to see you when you come home because he's missed you when you were gone. These are loving, needy types of dogs who thrive on love and attention.

How could that be annoying! Its lovely, and what makes a Chihuahua a Chihuahua, different breeds have different characteristics..
If it gets too extreme/destructive it could be seperation anxiety, but it sounds like your little guy is just showing his devotion to your fiance

Um. He is excited that you are home with him so of course he gets crazily excited! He is a dog (as opposed to a goldfish in a bowl or a stuffed animal) so he is going to follow you around, you are "his" to him.
Were you familiar with dogs before you got him? Perhaps check out youtube chihuahua puppy videos. It will not take long for you to see your little one in those other dogs.
He sounds very normal and typical from my experience. My girls are close enough to him in age. We'd be disappointed if they were unaffected by our coming home or if they just sat around and did not care if we were there.

I LOVE that my chi's are excited that I'm home! That's why I chose to have chihuahuas rather than any other breed.

Awww he sounds so cute! I love those things about my chi's they are just so sweet whenever we come in and we enjoy their company too. Personally I hope those things don't go away.
