When a person talks about Tequila the Chihuahua, it’s almost as if they are talking about their puppy. Most people who have owned a Chihuahua or indeed any other breed of dog are familiar with the bitter bite of a dog’s tongue.
Though Tequila is not a particularly bitter-tongued Chihuahua, he will bite and chew anything he sees as a food source and even people in his path, such as other dogs and strangers at the dog park. Most people regard Tequila’s biting and chewing as nothing more than necessary aggression.
In order to understand why Tequila does it, it is important to have an understanding of his genetic make up. If a Chihuahua is raised in a home where the mother and father have had two litters, and the mother was bred to another dog, then chances are that Tequila’s DNA will be closer to that of the two litters than that of his littermates. The genetic make up of a Chihuahua is one of the reasons for his fierceness.
The genetic make up also accounts for the feral nature of Tequila. It can often happen that an owner will have a youngster in the house who he thinks is part of his family, but is really not. Some of the greatest myths surrounding Chihuahuas and their owners can be traced back to these kinds of circumstances.
Most Chihuahua breeders agree that the best breeding procedure to make sure that the parents are not only compatible, but that Tequila’s parents are compatible in their own way, is to not breed him until he’s at least 6 months old. This will make sure that he gets a firm grip on his genetic make up.
While the best way to explainTequila’s biting and chewing behavior, it is necessary to establish a level of explanation for his aggressive behavior when he’s young. For the most part, Tequila doesn’t want to hurt people or animals, although there are a few incidents when he has been known to do so. His genetic make up, along with the manner in which he was raised, makes him a high risk dog.
Chihuahuas aren’t the kind of dogs that can be trusted with younger children. They often cannot be safely left alone with an adult who has a temper and a demanding nature, unless a responsible adult accompanies them.
The reason that Chihuahuas are often known as “tough” dogs is that they have a very low tolerance for stress and, therefore, tend to be very difficult to calm down. Chihuahuas also like to chew on things and their food bowls are prone to getting chewed on.
A few bites and, perhaps, a single attack on a human or animal may not be reason enough to get rid of a Chihuahua, but it should be reason enough to take precautions and take your dog to a Chihuahua rescue centre if you suspect that he is in imminent danger. A small child is particularly vulnerable to an attack from a Chihuahua, and those who have a history of anxiety attacks or panic attacks should not handle a dog in this situation.
Even dogs that are “normal” size can get nervous and anxious in certain situations, and Chihuahuas have this tendency. Even though Tequila is only six weeks old, he’s probably already more defensive than he should be when around children, even if they are dressed appropriately.
Tequila needs to be handled by a responsible adult or a professional trainer who knows how to treat Chihuahuas and the way they feel when they are in a difficult situation. He is not the sort of dog to be left to his own devices. That is why he needs a trainer to help him get into a more peaceful state of mind.
The only reason why some people do not want to give Tequila away is that they think he is very cute and adorable, and they believe that he might be able to find a good home. if he gets a second chance.
