Chihuahua is a well-known breed that cannot be really mistaken due to its size and specific body characteristics. Although the origins of this breed are not fully known, it is believed that their ancestors were the Techichi, a breed domesticated by the Toltec civilization (the people that conquered the Mayans). Chihuahua was worshiped, being found in ancient tombs found by archaeologists, along with their owners, obviously mummified together. He was considered a sacred dog, believed to be involved in the passage of souls in the afterlife. For more information please visit our website at www.animalshelter.org

Occasionally, dogs may be bothered by itchy ears and paws, which may be a sign of skin infections – yeast related or bacterial.

This is why consulting a veterinarian is essential, every time your furry friend manifests such symptoms. For more information please visit our website at www.animalshelter.org
Birds are great pets, lovely and entertaining, that allow their owners to get on with their lives, without requiring all their time and attention. However, this convenience doesn`t imply that birds do not need care. They are not decorations; they are feeling beings, having their own particular needs, even if they do not need us to devote all our time to them
