Unique Characteristics of Teacup Chihuahuas

Teacup Chihuahuas, often weighing no more than 5 pounds, are known for their apple-shaped heads, luminous eyes, and compact bodies that make them the epitome of a lap dog. Despite their small stature, they possess a lively and confident personality, often unaware of their size in the presence of larger dogs. Their coat can come in various colors and can be either long or short, requiring different grooming needs.
