Dangers

Like other small dogs, the Chihuahua faces a danger outdoors that does not threaten his canine cousins that weigh more than 15 pounds – he is just the right size for a meal for a bird of prey or a coyote. Large hawks, eagles, and owls have been known to swoop down on pets and carry them away, and coyotes are becoming a common danger in some city fringes and suburbs.

Caution
Apple head chihuhauas are prone to have hydrocephalus.
* Due to the large amount of health problems related to the Apple Head Chihuahuas we do not breed them.

( Excessive water on the brain, Soft spot not closing. And a lot of people complain at the way  they look as adults with protruding eyes.)  See pictures of our Dear Head Chihuahuas in the Photo Section this is the type of Chihuahuas we breed. They have a little more of a Bambi Dear look to them.

HYDROCEPHALUS
The applehead Chihuahua is prone to medical issues that many owners don’t realize until after they’ve purchased their pets. Common Chihuahua health problems include hydrocephalus (water-on-the-brain).
Please have your pet checked for hydrocephalus on his/her office visit.

Hydrocephalus is the mulfunction of drainage system of the brain responsible for evacuating the cerebrospinal fluid from the brain into the circulatory system. In hydrocephalus condition the fluid builds up in the two large interconnecting chambers, and the brain and skull become enlarged because of the accumulation of the fluid. Hydrocephalus may be an acquired or congenital (present at birth) condition and may be caused by birth defects of the brain's drainage system, head injuries, tumors, parasitic or other infections. In young dogs, the presense of a dome-shaped head and/or non-closing, or persistent fontanel (also called fontanella) may indicate the development of hydrocephalus. Fontanel is a small gap between the incompletely formed cranial bones. Several such spots are usually present at birth and in most cases close usually by 3 or 4 months of age. In Chihuahua, the frontal fontanel, or molera, remains unclosed and this does not harm the dog.

Signs of Hydrocephalus include depression, severe loss of movement coordination, eye abnormalities, seizures, vision problems, and skull enlargement. Young affected puppies offen show unthriftiness - slow growth as compared to their littermates.

Hydrocephalus is characterized by a build-up of fluid around the brain, caused by a variety of reasons. Symptoms of hydrocephalus includes a very domed head, small size, very large or multiple moleras (also known as a soft-spot), listlessness, sluggish/sleepiness,  poor coordination, and seizures. Some Chihuahuas may show symptoms early on, while others may not show symptoms until they are older. Some Chihuahuas are able to live with a mild case of hydrocephalus throughout adulthood.
