This is my 5th purchase and each one is cuter than the next! These hoodies are well constructed, warm, and stylish. This has been such a harsh winter that my more finicky of the two Puggles had tried to wear his brother's hoodie and so I had to buy him his own. He wears it all the time and loves it! He never lets me put any clothes on him until now. Thank you for your creation that he clearly found comfortable!

Absolutely love this sweatshirt and Lizzie loves wearing it!!! Jemesii was also incredibly helpful! She customized the sweatshirt by adding a couple inches to cover Lizzie's tummy and the item still shipped within a couple of days!! I have already ordered 2 more sweatshirts from Five Chihuahuas.

Clothes for our furry friends.

Five Chihuahuas began as a simple and practical idea: I adopted my first dog, Olive, a tiny blond chihuahua…. and she needed clothes. Winters and summers in New England aren't exactly kind to tiny dogs!

I have a Fine Arts degree from UMass Dartmouth, with a concentration in Jewelry/Metals. I also worked as a model for several years. Making these clothes combined several of my loves: making, fashion and dogs.

As for the name: I love chihuahuas. These tiny dogs hold a special place in my heart. After adopting Olive I began to research chihuahuas and learned more about their mysterious history; I like to explain to people that chihuahuas used to be the "unicorns" of the dog world. There is a legend that the Mexican general Santa Ana used to ride into battle with a troop of chihuahuas at his back as they were believed to have magical abilities. In my mind I saw this phalanx as five chihuahuas spread behind him.... and thus the name!

Olive was lost to a mauling shortly before I launched my company. I wear her dog tag around my neck every day and she still serves as my inspiration. I miss that little nugget more than words can convey.

Today I live and work out of Boston, Massachusetts. I have two dogs, Kala and Fig. Kala is my fantastic model; Fig lacks the ability to sit still long enough for photos.
