I am not sure why.. But I am positive that they do. The problem with most owners is thay don't bond with there chihuahua. If you are mean to, or dislike the animal it wont make the b ond that is neccisary.

I have had Asthma my entire life, we got a male chihuahua.. and I never bonded with him. Also another theory is that you have to get them when they are a puppy. The male chihuahua was already grown.

By chance when I was 12 early in the year, we had to take in a 17 hour old female chihuahua, and bottle feed her from the time of birth. With the first we had got him for the asthma. With her we hadn't thought about it. By the end of the year we noticed that she had start to have coughing fits and started weezing. Not very long after that did I notice I could go outside and run and not even need my inhaler. Were as before I would have been having an attack.

So as far as it being a myth.. NO! I am a true believer in this and I will stand strong on that.

I thank that little chihuahua Indie now for giving me my life back. She still has coughing fits and weezing when overexcited.

Are chihuahuas good dogs for children with asthma?

Chihuahua's are not goos for children with asthma, more so, are not good for children at all. Chihuahua's are traumatizing, with their small, beady, glowing yellow eyes, their overly large ears, small, shivering body, and razor sharp teeth that are always yapping loudly and frightening anyone who enters the room by running over and yapping at them. I had a horrible childhood experience with Chihuahuas, and now have a long-lasting mortal fear. The only Chihuahuas I lie now are the soft, furry kind, and Chihuahuas that don't make noise.
