Chihuahua Symbolism

You have to commit yourself to a decision. If you don't take action you have not truly decided.

If Chihuahua has come across your path;

Chihuahua is reminding you that you should follow your heart at all times. By using your heart you will be shown the easiest way to attain your goals. The heart knows what is right for you at all times. What may seem as a ridiculous direction for you is really the right way for you to go. Allow yourself to feel your way through this and know that you are loved and supported completely along the way.

Alternatively this breed of dog could be letting you know that perhaps you have to stop looking and simply just leap!

If Chihuahua is your Animal Totem;

You are never unnerved by tackling big projects. You have a gift for simply getting the job done no matter how big or small. You are known for your brazen decisions and actions and often surprise those around you when they are successful. Once you decide on something you tend to stand your ground firmly in that decision and refuse to back down. You are intensely loyal and devoted to those close to you as well as highly protective of them. You love being the center of attention and sometimes tend to lean towards histrionics in order to get the attention you crave. Having said that you also have a fantastic sense of humor and love to make people laugh. Often you are the one at parties with everyone gathered around you in absolute stitches over your amusing stories and wit.

If Chihuahua has come into your dreams;

To see this breed of dog in your dream symbolizes that someone close to you is trying to get your attention in an unusual way. Their actions and body language and the words they have been using have not been clear or direct – instead they have resorted to elaborate hints. It may also mean that they are too insecure to express themselves clearly.

Alternatively the dream could indicate that you need to stand your ground in a situation rather than backing down from your own ideas and ideals. Your input is valid and needs to be recognized by those around you.

Additional Associations for Chihuahua:


  • My spirit animal has yet to be confirmed to me. I recently was shown Quan Yin is my spiritual guide; but chihuahua guide really strikes a cord for me!

  • This is strange because I also have four Chihuahuas. I dreamt I found a Chihuahua, named Harrison, and returned in to its owner. I was upset because they said they always let the dog out alone. When I pointed out that the dog had crossed a busy street, the owner just said that the dog knows what to do.

    • I also find it strange that I picked Chihuahua as the first choice on your website.
      Because I also own 4 Chihuahua’s too!!!
