German Shepard Chihuahua Mixes are one of the most popular breeds in the world. They have been bred since ancient times to guard their owners from danger. Today they are considered some of the best working dogs in the world. They make excellent guards, watchdogs, and even family pets! Their large size makes them perfect for guarding small or confined spaces such as a house or apartment building.
The German Shepherd breed originated in Germany around 1750. They were originally used to protect livestock and farmlands from wild animals. However, over time the breed was developed into a powerful fighting dog. The German Shepherd’s popularity grew during World War II when they served with distinction in both the British Army and the American army. During the war, many German Shepherds were captured by the Japanese and became known as “Kuro” (Crimson) Dogs.
These dogs were so feared that they could not be sold to other countries. Many of these dogs were killed after being captured because they had no place in society anymore. After the war, many German Shepherds survived and made their way back to Germany where they still live today.
The Chihuahua is also one of the world’s oldest dog breeds. They originated in Mexico and were first domesticated by the Mayans around 800-1000 BCE. They were very popular among royalty in South America and Central America. They are a small breed but are feisty and full of energy. They are especially good at hunting rodents and snakes.
