hi im thinking of buying my first chihuahua but i keep hearing conflicting opinions on their temperament which is kind of concerning! lol. Some people tell me that they are affectionate and sociable and very friendly adorable little creatures. I REALLY want to believe this but then i hear the other side of the debate which tells me that they are very noisy, they growl and snap at people coming into the house and that they hate being picked up and cant stand other animals. I've even had more than a couple of people tell me that they once had a chihuahua but had to sell it because they ended up afraid of the dog. :shock: :shock: :shock: NOT good! i love the little guys but dont want to end up terrified of my 4lb bundle of fluff. lol.
