Chihuahuas remained a rarity until the early 20th century, and the American Kennel Club did not register a Chihuahua until 1904. In a 1520 letter, Hernan Cortés wrote that the Aztecs raised and sold the little dogs as food. Colonial records refer to small, nearly hairless dogs at the beginning of the 19th century, one of which claims 16th century Conquistadores found them plentiful in the region later known as Chihuahua. An analysis of DNA from the genome of domesticated dogs indicates that they entered North America from Siberia for 4,500 years and were then isolated for the next 9,000 years. After contact with Europeans, these lineages were replaced by Eurasian dogs and their local descendants. The pre-contact dogs exhibited a unique genetic signature that is now almost gone. In 2020, the sequencing of ancient dog genomes indicates that in 2 Mexican breeds the Chihuahua retains 4% and the Xoloitzcuintli 3% pre-colonial ancestry. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed recognized by some kennel clubs. Current breed standards defined by registries specify an “apple-head” or “apple-domeskull conformation.

Chihuahuas have large, round eyes and large, erect ears, set in a high, dramatically rounded skull. The stop is well defined, forming a near 90 degree angle where the muzzle meets the skull. Dogs of the older “deer” type, with a flat-topped head, more widely set eyes, larger ears, and longer, more slender legs, may still be registered. Breed standards for this dog do not generally specify a height, only a weight and a description of their overall proportions. Generally, the height ranges between 6 and 9 inches (15 and 23 cm), however, some dogs grow as tall as 30 to 38 cm (12 to 15 inches). Both British and American breed standards state that a Chihuahua must not weigh more than 5.9 lb (2.7 kg) for conformation. However, the British standard also states that a weight of 4-6 lb (1.8-2.7 kg) is preferred. A clause stating, “if 2 dogs are equally good in type, the more diminutive one is preferred” was removed in 2009. The Fédération Cynologique Internationale standard calls for dogs ideally between 1.5 and 3.0 kg (3.3 and 6.6 lbs), although smaller ones are acceptable in the show ring.
