The Teacup breed is estimated to have the shortest lifespan of about 10 to 13 years as compared to the average breed that may live from 15 to 20 years. Compared to other dog species this is quite a long life span.
Based on test speeds for dogs in the past, the average dog speed is around 19 mph. But for smaller dogs such as Chihuahuas, the average speed falls a bit. This is because their legs are much smaller compared to other breeds of dogs.
Chihuahuas like things to be done the way they like it. They can be very defiant and not perform a command. They can be adamant and have a program of their own.
Dachshunds are a special breed of dogs. Their extra long body and short legs make them look cute, thus giving them the nickname “sausage dogs”.
Saying that Chihuahuas are a special breed is an understatement. Weighing just six pounds, they have a HUGE personality. There is a lot of attitude packed into that cute, compact body.
Some of the smallest dogs in the world are the Pomeranian, Brussels griffon, Papillion, Affenpinscher, Yorkshire terrier and others. But the smallest dog in the world is the Chihuahua.
