Your Chihuahua is a Desert Dog

Beautiful Hacienda RV Resort is at the edge of the Chihuahuan Desert. Isn’t that crazy – a big desert has the same name as the world’s favorite little dog! How did that happen?

Chihuahua History

Officially ‘discovered’ in the mid-19th century in the mountainous northwestern Mexican town of Chihuahua, these precious little pups are believed to be direct descendants of the Techichi, a teeny desert dog that dates back to Mayan times. Although now extinct, the Techichi was bred by ancient Mexican civilizations for both hunting and companionship.

Tourists visiting Mexico in the late 1800s were enthralled by these frisky, friendly doggies and began taking them home. They didn’t have an official name until the American Kennel Club admitted them as a recognized breed in 1904 and simply called the dogs after the city where they were found – Chihuahua.

Chihuahuas are loving and lovable little friends. Their small size and minimal need for space make them perfect for canine companionship in your RV.

Delightful Desert Dog Park

Just like the big dogs, your little buddy is full of energy. Hacienda RV Resort has a wonderful enclosed dog park so your Chihuahua can run around. Don’t just take our word for it though.
