|As the smallest dog of all
breeds, Chihuahuas are sensitive and timid, and therefore not ideal for
small children. If they are socialized and trained correctly, they will
be playful and upbeat. Chihuahuas are low-energy dogs and therefore don't
require much exercise aside from a few quick walks. Chihuahuas come in either
longhaired or smooth-coated styles. Grooming is minimal for each.
