Why do Chihuahuas sleep under covers?

At what age do Chihuahuas go GREY?

What is the rarest color Chihuahua?
White is, arguably, the rarest color of Chihuahua around. An albino Chihuahua isn’t the same thing as a white one, but both are the result of a lack of pigmentation. The white Chihuahua lack melanocytes, which give the coat its pigmentation, but retain the eumelanin needed to give them black eyes, noses, and paws.
