How Many Puppies Can a Chihuahua Have?

A Chihuahua can have five puppies per litter. Younger Chihuahuas tend to have smaller litters, delivering between one and three puppies, while older ones may have larger litters.

To protect the mother and pups, most Chihuahua litters are delivered by C-section, and it is not recommended for a female to produce more than four litters in her lifetime.

The world record for a Chihuahua’s litter size was set in 2018 when a Chihuahua in Kansas gave birth to 11 puppies.
