Long-coated Chihuahua dog overview

Originated in Mexico, although mystery surrounds how it arrived in that country. Long-coated chihuahuas are rarer than the short-coated variety. They are sensitive in temperament and prefer the human lap to any other bed. In fact they are the ultimate lapdog and require little exercise.
