There is an an amazing array of different chihuahua coat colours. 

In fact they have more colours than any other breed. We hunted the internet to see how many of the different chihuahua coat colours we could find. Have a look and see if your chihuahua  coat colour is here. If you have a chi we haven’t found please send us a photo.

Not all chihuahua colours are recognised by the Kennel Club. Merle chihuahuas do cause some controversy. You can read about merle chihuahuas in this article.

Both pure white and pure black with absolutely no splashes of other colours are also rare. Chihuahuas also can be albino, that is the complete lack of any pigment. You will recognise one as they will have pink eyes. Finding a true albino is also quite rare and the breeding of them should  not be encouraged as they can suffer health issues.

Here is a roundup of all the colours we could find.
