All of our puppies come with a 2 year health guarantee for lifethreatening genetic defects, with a signed and approved Puppy Contract. They will come with a Puppy Goody Bag to include a sample of the food they are currently eating, a blanket with the scent of Mom and Siblings to bring comfort those scary first nights, toys and a Health Record recording their current Vaccinations and Dewormings. All of our puppies are examined by a Certified Veterinarian between 7 and 8 weeks of age, and the records from their vet appointment will be included in their Puppy Folder.
The average age for a Puppy to go to their new family is 8 to 9 weeks old. If they are charting on the smaller side they will need more time with their Mother and can go home at approximately 12 weeks old.
Historically, the Chihuahua has displayed a "soft spot" on the top of their head for many years. This spot, often called a Fontanel, is known as the Molera and is the same as that found in the human baby.

Chihuahuas are known sto have a high metabolism and should be fed twice a day using a high-quality dog food, such as Royal Canine. Young puppies should have food available to them at ALL TIMES to prevent hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is a condition that causes low blood sugar and can occur if a puppy has gone too long between meals, has become chilled or has experienced Stress, such as going to a New Home.
Your dog will rely on you to keep him healthy. A proper diet, regular exercise and grooming, and regular routine vet checks will keep your Chihuahua healthy. It is also important for you to know your dogs daily habits, such as eating, drinking, sleeping, since a variation in these daily habits can be an indication that he is not feeling well.
Ask your veterinarian for advice on healthcare and preventative care and seek medical attention if your think your dog is ill or hurt in any way.
