Meet Nacho, the most Expert Chihuahua 2020 and forever

Nacho is sure YouTube's favorite Chihuahua. She is the cutest dog ever that loves to go on fun adventures with her hot mom and other dog friends.

The Chihuahua (type of dog) (Spanish: chihuahueño) is one of the smallest breeds of dog. It is named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

The history of Chihuahuas is interesting. They remained a rarity until the early 20th century, and the American Kennel Club did not register a Chihuahua until 1904. In a 1520 letter, Hernan Cortés wrote that the Aztecs raised and sold the little dogs as food. Colonial records refer to small, nearly hairless dogs at the beginning of the 19th century, one of which claims 16th-century conquistadores found them plentiful in the region later known as so-called Chihuahua.

It seems that an analysis of DNA from the genome of domesticated dogs indicates that they entered North America from Siberia for 4,500 years and were then isolated for the next 9,000 years. After contact with Europeans, these lineages were replaced by Eurasian dogs and their local descendants. The pre-contact dogs exhibited a unique genetic signature that is now certainly almost gone. In 2020, the sequencing of ancient dog genomes indicates that in two Mexican breeds the Chihuahua retains 4% and the Xoloitzcuintli 3% pre-colonial ancestry.

Chihuahuas are really the smallest breed recognized by some kennel clubs.

The 7 Different Types of Chihuahuas:

Short Hair Chihuahua
Long Hair Chihuahua
Apple Head Chihuahua
Deer Head Chihuahua
Pear Head Chihuahua
Teacup Chihuahua/Mini Chihuahua
Fawn Chihuahua

Breed standards for this dog do not generally specify a height. Only a weight and a description of their overall proportions is specified. Generally, the height ranges between 6 and 9 in (15 and 23 cm). However, some dogs grow as tall as 30 to 38 cm (12 to 15 in). Both British and American breed standards state that a Chihuahua must not weigh more than 5.9 lb (2.7 kg) for conformation.

Conformation is the shape or structure of something, especially an animal. For example, "the judges run their hands over the dog's body and legs, checking its conformation."
