Awww I had a chaweenie, a dachshund, and a St Bernard. The little one was actually very protective...of me. :) He thought he was a big boy. They were all so jealous of each other I couldn't pet one without petting the other two or the little rat, a 100 pound slobber factory, and the hotdog would all try to get in my lap. Sorry, OP. Those chihuahuas are little but vicious.
Animals are very predictable, especially dogs. It's just that most people can't read the body language. The barking was the dog warning OP to stay away, and I'm guessing there would have been growls, ears laid back, posture would have been aggressive. Just because you can't read the signs doesn't mean they don't exist.
