Hello All, I'm new here. Found this sit via Google, when I looking for information on Chihuahua sizes. When I first saw my little girl I could tell she had Chihuahua heritage. What I didn't know when I rescued her is she is not a mixed breed. To be honest had someone told me that at the very beginning I probably would have been hesitant to adopt her. My life experiences with Chihuahuas had always been they were nasty, yippy, nervous, hyper, ill tempered little things. She was the only dog in the shelter that didn't have a negative reaction to my electric wheelchair. I fell for her the first moment I laid eyes on her. She is MUCH larger than any Chihuahua I've ever seen, her color and the pattern of her coloring ... are both completely different from any Chihuahua I had previously seen. And she was the the first long-haired Chihuahua I'd ever laid eyes upon. But the veterinarian assures me she is a Chihuahua and that her coloring is common among long-haired Chihuahuas.. M'Lady's temperament is unlike any Chihuahua I've ever seen. She is sweet, quiet, calm, playful and very loving. I don't know what I would do without my girl or how I would have ever made it through my first two years as a widow without her.
