I absolutely despise the bad rap that Chihuahuas get. “They are dumb, mean, loud, ankle biters who are good for punting.” The negativity behind the breed name truly breaks my heart. I, too, was uneducated about Chihuahuas before I rescued Wynston but he’s taught me how amazing chihuahuas really are. In fact, a Chihuahua is a perfect breed for me, and I think it’s a great breed for anyone willing to give them a chance. Chihuahuas are the 2nd most euthanized breed of dog in the United States. I want to help change that. I’ve written a post about negative Chihuahua stereotypes, and now I want to focus on the positive side of things – why Chihuahuas are incredible dogs.
