While the origin of the Chihuahua is still highly debated, they are named after the city of Chihuahua in Mexico. Some people think the breed dates back to the Aztecs where they were used in religious ceremonies, and even eaten by conquistadors, the breed is ancient that is not in debate. Legend has it that the yellow Chihuahua could lead his owner’s soul across the river of death, to the other side. Chihuahua’s can be any color or mix of colors, and come in a smooth or long coat. The smooth coat needs little grooming while the long coat needs brushing to avoid mats. These little fast moving, saucy terrier-type dogs are highly intelligent and in spite of their size should never be underestimated. The AKC recognized the breed in 1904, in the Toy Group. Chihuahua’s should not weigh more than 6 pounds and while smaller Chihuahua’s are called “Tea Cups” this term is not recognized by the AKC and is entirely a marketing ploy

That is exactly what our pupcake trinket boxes are! You pick up the top and the cupcake bottom is the trinket box! They are hand painted and top quality.
