Chihuahuas are distinctively one of the tiniest dog breeds in the entire canine family, making them ideal for prospective dog owners who live in an apartment or condominium complex. They hardly grow heavier than five pounds, which makes them easy to handle.

Additionally, their short fur means they generally don’t require a lot of grooming. These little guys also make great watchdogs because they are prone to barking, especially when they spot a stranger nearby.
