Who Runs The Chihuahua Shack?

Welcome, all Chihuahua lovers! We are Michelle and Marco De Los Santos, owners of the feisty but loving rescue Chihuahua named Leo. They say that great things come in small packages, but who knew the package would be so furry.

Since then, she has committed herself to learning about health, supplements, and nutrition to prevent cancer and live as healthy as possible.

As pet parents, we want to share our knowledge and help others build amazing relationships with their pups.

We strive to answer all the questions that we had ourselves such as:
