We raise AKC registered Chihuahuas, most with multi-Champion backgrounds. Some folks think that chihuahuas are yappy little ankle biters....not so. These little dogs are highly intelligent and loving. They may be small, but don't tell them. We have 5 large grassy playgrounds with carpeted sunning decks and doggie doors so that they can go outside any time they wish. In winter months we cover the kennel ramps so they don't have to contend with snow and ice. When indoors, our girls have the run of the house. The maxi-recliner is their favorite place snuggled up close to Ruth while she types away on her laptop computer. Our males each have a pen inside and a long kennel run outside. Our girls are crate trained. They eat and sleep in their crates... and sometimes just curl up in a crate and take a nap, it's their little den space and they like it. There is quite a big difference in crates and cages! No cages here!
What to expect when you come to visit-
Our dogs are great alarms when someone knocks at the door, rings the doorbell, or sometimes just when a car door closes in our driveway (grin). They can sound intimidating when you first come in. But rest assured, they are friendly and just anxious to meet you! If you will walk through the kitchen and come into the living room and sit down, they will quiet right down and want to get in your lap in a minute or two. If you remain standing, they will be anxious and will continue to bark (especially the Mamas' protecting their babies).
