    Chihuahuas require a lot of care and attention. They are also extremely delicate and territorial and may not fare well in a household with that many small children. You would have to teach your children how to handle the dog carefully. Even if their intention is not to hurt or harm the animal, they may do so accidentally.

    I would also strongly urge you to adopt one at a shelter. Perhaps offer to foster one for a few days to see how it goes. Like a test drive. You'll be buying time for an animal that might be running out of options.

    Good luck.

    I sold a small dog to a friend that only had 2 small kids. I warned him how delicate the dogs are and the kids might accidentally break his leg.  3 weeks later, the dog had a broken leg in a cast. You  might want to get a slightly bigger dog that is very friendly.
