Chihuahuas: The Perfect Pet for LA
Living in Los Angeles won’t feel complete without a Chihuahua by your side. Chihuahuas are fiercely loyal dogs that promise undying affection for life. Once you have earned their trust, they will strive to protect and care for you like family.
While popularly known for their particularly vocal disposition, Chihuahuas are actually highly intelligent as well, and respond enthusiastically to training. Vet Street notes that the reason Chihuahuas are known as yappers is because many owners don’t take the time to train them as they would a larger dog. With consistent and heartfelt training, Chihuahuas are as calm and quiet as any other breed.
Due to their smaller stature, Chihuahuas are also more sensitive to cold than other dogs, but LA’s climate ensures your dog will never be cold unless they’re indoors. The Chihuahua’s smaller size also makes them comfortable in living conditions large and small, and they can be transported anywhere with ease.
Los Angeles offers dozens of dog-friendly establishments like Angel City Brewery where dogs and their owners can spend an afternoon, or you could enjoy a day at Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Beach. Chihuahuas are ideal dogs for urban living, especially somewhere as multifaceted as Los Angeles.
The best way to save a beloved Chihuahua, or any pet, is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.
