An average heart rate is pretty high it would be around 140. If the dog is calm and resting it could be as low as 115. If the dog is excited and playing the heart rate could be as high as 160. Also it depends on the age, puppies seem to have a higher heart rate than adults.

The average heart rate for a chihuahua is about one hundred forty beat per minute. At rest, the chihuahua's heart rate may dip as low as one hundred fifteen beats per minute, and when the dog is excited or distressed, it may reach up to one hundred sixty beats per minute.
