The Chihuahua is originated in Mexico. Its ancestors were the Techichi, another small long hair dog. It originated in the 1850's, when several very small dogs were found in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, from which the breed gets its name.

Chihuahuas remained rare until 1904 when they were recognised by the AKC(American Kennel Club). The Chihuahua's popularity then took off, with over 40,000 Chihuahua dogs registered each year.

There is no more history of Chihuahuas for the next 300 years.
