Terlingua Chihuahuas is a preservation breeder of purposely-bred dogs.  Our breeds are endangered.  Heritage breeders like Terlingua want to see Chihuahuas live on for future generations.  We love Chihuahuas of beauty, brains, health and personality!  The total package superstar is what we're striving for!   


Our Chihuahuas are members of our family - which includes five kids at home under age 12.  We live on a farm in Middle Tennessee.   We are hobby breeder/exhibitors who breed to the AKC standard so that we may have fabulous Chihuahuas to show and love.  We show in AKC conformation and obedience, IABCA and ICE conformation, coursing ability, nosework, FastCAT, and barn hunt!  I have been a part of the dog fancy since I was 11 years old - 42 years ago.  


We appreciate the great breeders who have entrusted us with our wonderful foundation dogs.


We are not a business.  This is a hobby site.  We do this for the love of our wonderful breed and the desire to have Chihuahuas around for many generations to come.
