The Chihuahua

Crossing the millenium…
A long way from the Aztecs, the Chihuahua’s story entered a new phase in the USA.
Breeding began there in the 19th century and the breed was officially recognised by the American Kennel Club in 1904.
The Chihuahua’s tiny size appealed to many Americans, and after the Second World War it made its appearance in Europe where it also became a great success.
