White Chihuahua are a particularly attractive variation of what is already a cute and attractive dog. While Chihuahua come in a variety of colours including beige, cream, brown and black; the white Chihuahua is perhaps the most 'pure' looking. For this reason whether you're looking for a Chihuahua for taking to shows, using as a fashion accessory (as is particularly popular at the moment), or just as a friendly companion for yourself or your family, white can be a great choice.
In fact there are twenty nine colours of Chihuahua including black, black and tan, chocolate, cream, fawn, red, silver and various combinations of these colours. White Chihuahua are fairly rare (as they need to be purer bread to avoid seeing markings from differently coloured ancestors) and are also in fairly high demand due to their attractiveness. For this reason breeders may charge slightly more for white Chihuahua.
If you're a casual owner then – looking for a friend and not a money maker/handbag accessory – then it may be worthwhile going for a less rare colour. To still get the desirable effect without paying the undesirable cost you may want to consider getting a Chihuahua that has more than one colour in its coat.
