Make sure you find a reputable breeder. Check their references, talk to people, ask for some recommendations. Do not buy from a pet store. You can also try to find a rescue in your area that specializes in this breed.

Some very basic things that you will need to keep in mind before bringing home a chihuahua puppy. You will need two bowls for feed and water. You'll need to discuss with a vet what kind of food to feed your puppy so it does not conflict with its digestive system. You will need a collar and a leash.

One of the most important things you should keep in mind when buying a chihuahua or any other puppy is where it comes from. It is ideal to see both parents of the puppy as well as it's living conditions. You can also check to be sure the puppy comes with papers which prove they are pure bred.

Get one with bright eyes and a happy disposition. Also keep in mind that many chihuahua's are a one person dog, meaning they'll favor one member in the family usually and chihuahua's don't always get along well with children. Make sure the dog is as healthy as can be and ask questions regarding his past health.
