But there are other versions of the origin of the Chihuahua. According to one modern Chihuahua was the result of mixing Techichi with a small hairless dog, which appeared in the east, most likely from China, through which existed in those days, the isthmus between two continents, who was at the site of today's Bering Strait. There is also a version that home to these dogs is Egypt. Mummified remains small dog with a characteristic fontanel (Mahler) on the skull, were found in Egyptian tombs, dating from about 3 thousand years BC. er. On the remains were collars, jeweled. According to other research the origin and development of the breed, the home of the Chihuahua to be found in Europe, more precisely in Malta. On this island already existed small breeds of dogs, endowed, like Chihuahuas, a distinctive feature of the breed – "Mahler", or parietal fontanel.
Other breeds of dogs such fontanelle is extremely rare. The essential argument in favor of the theory of European origin of the breed is wall painting "Scene from the life of Moses, adorns the Sistine Chapel, founded in 1482 by the famous Alessandro Botticelli, which shows a dog looking like a Chihuahua. Note that this fact indicates the possibility of the existence in Europe, this breed before sailing caravels of Christopher Columbus. If this theory is correct, it could be that the Spanish conquistadors did not bring these dogs into the Old World, but instead took them with him from Europe to travel to the shores of India. The author of one interesting theory argues that the ancestor of the modern Chihuahua was Fenech or bolsheuhaya fox that inhabits the deserts of North Africa. Fenech – the smallest member of the family dogs, the size it is smaller than the home cat. Height at withers 18-22 cm body length – 30-40 cm, tail – up to 30 cm, weighs up to 1,5 kg. He obladatet huge ears (they help to cool in hot climates) and large round eyes (adaptation to nocturnal), so reminiscent of eyes and ears chihuahua.
Still there is one version of the origin of the Chihuahua is probably the weirdest. Chihuahuas – are messengers of space far unknown extraterrestrial civilizations, and, specifically, by Mahler for communication with the cosmos. For something as there nezarastayuschee hole in the skull chihuahua.Ne except for communication with unearthly civilizations. All sorts of puzzles, bizarre and beautiful. For example, here is a version of the Indians – it came from the wild tribes Siberian taiga. They came to the Americas on the isthmus in place Berengova Strait, and who knows, maybe, taking with him someone from the small little animals. And how do you such a legend. Indians hunted big cats (Jaguar) with small dogs. They are, ie, dogs, cats lured into the thicket of cactus. Sami ran downstairs, where the tree trunk, and cats from all over the runway were met with thorns and stuck in the bush. Beautiful, but not plausible. Where to find the roots of the Chihuahua – neponyatno.Mozhet be in Egypt or Europe, and perhaps still in Mexico. Or anywhere on their own what existed – that has its own special little dog, and between them there is no voobshe communication. Somewhere they're gone forever, and somewhere to survive.
