 * OUR CHIHUAHUAS ARE AKC REGISTERED *

Our membership is in good standing with American Kennel Club.

We were inspected by an AKC Field Agent on 3/17/2021 and after the inspection, the agent said we "passed with flying colors".

We are located in the outskirts of Madisonville, Tennessee near The Great Smoky Mountains and The Cherokee National Forest.  We breed AKC registered chihuahuas. All our chihuahuas are "Smooth Coat" (short hair). Our puppies usually grow up to weigh from about 3 lbs for the smaller ones, up to about 6 lbs for the bigger ones depending on their genetics. We never price our puppies until after they are born because prices depend most on birth weights and expected adult weights. The smaller ones cost more. 

AKC does not recognize anything other than "chihuahua" in their registry. 

AKC would not approve of us using terms such as "Tea Cup" or "Miniature" to describe our chihuahuas or using those terms as a "sales gimmick".

The Chihuahua is a tiny dog with a huge personality. Chihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like qualities. They are good with families if the children are gentle and patient. Because of their small size, they require little exercise and are good house dogs. Smooth coat Chihuahuas need very little grooming due to their short hair.
 

Please Note: The AKC Chihuahua Breed Standards are based on "Show Quality" dogs. Just because they don't meet the breed standards for show quality does not mean they are not purebred chihuahuas. It just means they cannot enter the AKC show ring. For example, I've seen chihuahuas come from AKC champion parents that have grown to weigh over 6 lbs.

A healthy chihuahua starts with responsible breeding techniques. The chihuahua is a very special breed and all chihuahua owners should be educated on the proper care of the breed. With a very tiny chihuahua there is some important details you must know about to prevent problems. 
 
If you plan on getting a puppy from us, please be sure you know the important details about the proper care for very tiny ones. They must have a good quality highly nutritious food and fresh water available at all times. They must be monitored to make sure they are eating and drinking. Their tiny stomach is not big enough for them to consume enough to last very long without refueling, especially since they burn calories very fast. If this special care is not provided, your tiny friend can get hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) which can be very serious, so prevention of this is extremely important.
 

 
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Chihuahuas are very sensitive to cold temperatures, especially tiny young puppies. The puppy should always be kept warm and out of drafty areas, just the same as you would do with a human baby.
