International Chihuahua Appreciation Day

International Chihuahua Appreciation Day

May 14 is International Chihuahua Appreciation Day.

This day shines a light on these tiny but mighty companions, emphasizing their special qualities and encouraging people to appreciate and care for them. The day was established in 2020 by Nadia Alterio, a devoted fan of the breed, to coincide with her own Chihuahua’s birthday.

This day is not just about celebrating; it’s also about spreading awareness of Chihuahuas as pets. They are known for their loyalty and charm, often forming strong bonds with their owners.

These little dogs are easy to care for, which makes them great companions, especially for those living in smaller spaces.

Moreover, International Chihuahua Appreciation Day encourages actions that support the well-being of Chihuahuas, such as adopting from shelters and contributing to rescue organizations.

It’s a day filled with love and appreciation for a breed that, despite its size, holds a big place in the hearts of dog lovers around the globe​.
