I have a few, not specific to my chihuahua, but fav things about chihuahuas as a breed.

I love their look, short muzzle, round head, big pointed ears, just love the look of them, oh and LCs plume of hair on their tails :) love their tails once their full coats come in and their manes round their chest. I think their faces have such character.
I also love them for their size, for me it makes them easier kept and means I can bring her everywhere with me as I travel a couple times a year to relatives (long drives) and would find it much harder and maybe impossible to accommodate a bigger dog on these trips.
I love the fact that they can come in ANY colour, not many other breeds can come in all colours, you never know what colours you could get in a litter, I love that!

My biggest thing I love about them is their pure devotion to their owner, they are cuddly lap dogs, Sugar loves nothing more than to curl up on my lap at the end of the day and watch tv with me. All she's wants is to be with me and please me! (Though that one is obviously not just specific to chis but to most dogs).

What are your most favourite things about chihuahuas?

Hands down I love the personality of my dogs.
I really like that fact that they are truly (mostly) one person dogs.
This trait is so strong in Chi's they truly adore their humans.

I also love that he is so smart and learns so quickly! He amuses and amazes me!

Their looks, their personality, their loyalty, their playfullness, their unfailing ability to make even the worst day wonderful again the minute you look into their open, honest, trusting little face. The knowledge that this is the most loyal, loving and trustworthy friend you are ever going to have in your life, and their huge little hearts. yep....am completely obsessed lol!!!

Yes I love that they are so small and don't demand much space. I get so many "why didn't you get a real dog?" comments, from people with big breeds like labs and dobes and I just tell them that a tiny dog suits my lifestyle much better than a large breed would. She is low maintenance and has done literally no damage to me house or lifestyle. Where as my cousin who has a v big Doberman has a house full of scratched, broken down doors and door frames etc. I just couldn't live with that, I LOVE that I know I can trust Sugar completely in my house and never have to worry about her ruining anything on me!

I have a friend who is frequently saying things about Paco being so small. She has a German Shepherd that is the dumbest dog I have ever met. I had begun to take offense at all of her comments. One day my grandson was here when she said "I have stuffed animals bigger than he is!" My grandson piped up and said "I have stuffed animals that are smarter than yours!!" I tried really hard not to laugh!

I agree with many of you that my favorite thing about Chihuahuas is how they attach to one person. They make you feel like you're so important and loved. :)

I also love how they burrow and like to hide things in their beds! I found dollar bills in my Chi's bed in the past, lol! She must have been saving for some special treats.

Mine loves to burrow too, I started letting her sleep in my bed about a month ago but she's not satisfied with lying on the duvet, she has to burrow under the throw we have on the bed and sleep there, the first morning I woke up and thought she was gone as she was under the throw and I couldn't see her!

There is just something about the way they cock those little heads, look me straight in the eyes and seem to "hang" on my every word..:) They are so intuitive and able to judge my mood or feelings almost instantly; and having done so are able to give me exactly what I need ~ whether that is a snuggle, a kiss, solitude, or just sitting with me quietly observing my every move. And I love sleeping with a little fuzzy body curled up touching me. They are the perfect companion and I adore each one of them.

One of the things that attracted me to them in the first place was that despite being tiny, they are still 'dog shaped'. Although I love breeds like Bassets and Pekes, I don't really like what we have done to dogs as a species.
I love the fact that they are so happy all the time, and so active. My two are always on the go, rushing around like lunatics. The last dog I had was a Whippet, and she was sweet and gentle, but she never wanted to play, preferring to sleep, and always looked so miserable lol. My Chi's are both little jokers.
I love Bambi's intelligence. I'm certain she understands every word I say. (Harley is very loving, but extremely stupid, I don't know which is more usual for the breed!)
I marvel every day how so much dog can fit in such a tiny package.

I agree with everything said here about chi,s this is the first one i have ever had and i wonder why i never got one a long time ago.I thought chi,s were meant to be a one person dog, but my little man loves his daddy just as much,he sleeps at the bottom of our bed in between us,i can feel his warm little body against my feet and i just love him to death.I,m glad he loves his daddy just as much because I,m in and out of hospital a bit so it,s good to know he will eat ok when I,m not here.
