The Chihuahua’s origin lies in the mists of the past. The breeding of very small dogs as sacrificial and food animals is said to have existed as early as the Toltecs, a Central American civilization that flourished between the 10th and 12th centuries. Another theory assumes the origin in the older Aztec culture or even in ancient Egypt. Much later, descendants of the Mexican indigenous people in the province of Chihuahua sold small puppies to tourists. This is how this tiny dog came to the US and started its career there, and since 1905 it has even been a recognised pedigree dog. A distinction is made between the long-legged Derry and the stronger Cobby type. Both types come in long and short hair variants.
