Where you’ve heard of it: The 2008 movie Beverly Hills Chihuahua; Bruiser from the 2001 movie Legally Blonde
Because Chihuahuas are so small, they make good city dogs―they can be toted around and don’t mind living in apartments. In addition, they cost less to own than a large dog because they eat less and the smooth-coated Chihuahua requires little grooming. However, some Chihuahuas can be fearless and curious, and they must be trained and watched closely so they don’t get into trouble. Also, many bark a lot. Because they are fragile, especially as puppies, they are best for families with older children who can properly handle pets.
