Different Types of Chihuahuas

Smooth-Coat Chihuahua

Smooth-coat Chihuahuas have originated from Mexico, and their breed goes as far back as the 5th century to the times of the Mayan Civilization. They are some of the smallest kinds of Chihuahuas with a very fine, smooth coat and an apple-domed skull.


Long-Coat Chihuahua

This ancient breed has descended from Mayan dogs in South America and also from the Techichi dog family in the Toltecs of Mexico. According to historical records, the long-coat Chihuahua was mentioned in a letter that was written by Christopher Columbus to the King of Spain.


Apple Head Chihuahua

Apple Head Chihuahuas get their name interesting and unique from their apple-shaped head with a 90-degree sloping forehead. This angle is called a “stop” which is basically the point where the muzzle meets the forehead. They are a resilient breed that was discovered by the Americans in the 1800s.


Deer Head Chihuahua

This Chihuahua breed also gets its unique name from the shape of its head. Just like the apple-head Chihuahuas, the deer-head Chihuahuas also have a sloped angle which is at 45-degrees, where its relatively long snout meets the skull.


Teacup Chihuahua

These Chihuahuas are named so because they are actually small enough to fit into teacups. They are smaller than regular dog breeds since they weigh less than five pounds and are smaller than nine inches once they are fully grown.
