Learn more about the breed


Descending from the heavier Techichi, the Chihuahua is an ancient dog with Chihuahua-like dogs decorate the artifacts of lost civilizations around the world. The Aztecs are greatly credited for refining the Techichi into a closer relative of the modern day Chihuahua, and it is named after the state of Mexico where American’s first discovered this species back in the 1800s. Being ever more influential in modern media, they have appeared in tons of movies across the world and are adored by the rich & elite for their small stature and larger-than-life attitude.


If the word ‘sassy’ were ever used to describe a dog, it would be for the Chihuahua - never have you seen something with this tiny of a disposition, act so big. 

Suffering from a mighty Napolean Syndrome - you need to keep your pup’s attitude in check, as they may be aggressive towards much larger dogs if not trained well ( and if you have ever come across a Chihuahua you know that they never back down ). Due to this syndrome, they are not the best with children - even if trained well, as they might hurt one another. 

They are also extremely vocal, you would be surprised how loud a pup so small can be, and if your neighbors are uncomfortable with hearing a dog being exorcised in the middle of the night, it is probably best to stray away from this breed.


Keep your Chihuahua happy & healthy, and you might see him live for a lot longer than you would expect - with 18 years being a common age for a well-bred chihuahua to reach. With smooth, short coat and the size of a small hare their shedding is barely noticeable and require minimal grooming.
Chihuahuas are not recommended for homes with children under the age of eight, simply because of the chance of injury by a young child. 20-30 minutes of exercise a day is plenty for this breed, and they are happy just gallivanting around the house letting everyone know who the boss is.


Importance of KCI

Also known as the Kennel Club of India, KCI is a professional body that maintains strict standards across various breeds of dogs across India. All KCI registered dogs come with a KCI registration certificate from the breeder, ensuring their pedigree. KCI representative may also visit the breeder at the time of whelping to ensure maintenance of breed standards. 
As the only reputed governing body of dog breed standards, we always recommend getting a dog that has been registered through this organization in order to have clarity regarding their origin. 

This does, however not ensure the conditions the pup was reared in or in what manner their parents might have been treated. This concern is what brings us to our next point: AWBI Certification

Significance of AWBI

The Animal Welfare Board of India requires that any individual selling any living dog must be registered with the animal welfare state board of their jurisdiction. In not doing so, both the buyer and seller are committing a crime.

Since this amendment was passed, it became illegal to buy / sell dogs without the breeder being the valid, original holder of an AWBI license. Apart from this judicial responsibility, AWBI also has strict guidelines regarding the conditions that the dogs must be kept in and the treatment provided to them. These guidelines make sure breeders follow responsible breeding practices  Due to these reasons, we strictly work only with AWBI registered breeders, and implore you to do the same.

How can you make a difference?

Ensure that you only work with AWBI registered breeders, and if you're looking for a purebred dog try to find one that is KCI registered. By forcing the breeders to obtain a license, we may finally put an end to puppy mills and unethical breeding practices.
