She has had two litters in the past but is now spayed. She is good with the other dogs and a sweetheart but she gets scared a lot around people, especially kids. She has never bitten anyone. She is also a great eater. She tends to shed, which is not a good match for people who are ... (Read More)asthmatic. Please, I would love to find her a loving home with patient parents. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in New Jersey
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in New Jersey if they match your IifestyIe. Chihuahuas are high strung, yappy, tiny dogs. Chihuahuas are loyal to the point of possessiveness and obsession with their masters. Chihuahuas are bold, high energy dogs that make wonderful companions for their owners but are suspicious of strangers. Chihuahuas are not well suited to families with children due to the dogs' defensiveness and tendency to snap when provoked. Chihuahuas need to be thoroughly socialized. Despite their small size, Chihuahuas are often aggressive with other dogs. Chihuahuas do fine living in an apartment but need plenty of daily exercise.

lnteresting Chihuahua Trivia Low-Cost New Jersey Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
