If you love dogs and having one would make you really happy, but you don’t think that you have the time to take care of it as much as it needs, you should know that you can have your cake and eat it too. Namely, many dogs require high maintenance and they do need you to spend much time on them. However, there are a few low maintenance dog breeds that can easily become and stay a part of your family and for which you will have all the necessary time and energy. These dogs are relatively easy to take care of and all it takes for them to be happy is a little exercise, grooming and playing.
This dog breed probably doesn’t look like a dog that some tough shot would want to have. However, if you have a gentle personality and you would simply love to have a dog join your family, but you don’t have the time or energy to spend hours exercising with it or grooming it, Chihuahua may be the breed for you.
We’re talking about short haired type here, and this breed almost requires no grooming at all. Chihuahuas are very small and they take up a very small amount of space. They need very little training and exercise, and they tend to attach to one person and not the entire family. This is why Chihuahua is great if you’re a single person living by yourself.
