Wilky and Porter, and Miah from    Chihuahua Rescue.org

The tiny Chihuahua offers you two blends; short-haired or long-haired, and both would rather be amongst themselves and the only dog in town.  They are an inside pet, and could fall prey to nature’s predators.  They can be temperamental to anyone other than their owner, and may not be a good companion for small children.  Very low maintenance in exercise and grooming.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
