Default deer head vs. apple head

I know the apple head is far more desirable, but puppies change so much as they grow how can you tell looking at a puppy which type its going to be?

He'll be a deer head, I believe. Congrats! He's adorable! I bet you can't wait to have him home.

He "looks" more deer shaped, but it's hard to tell from that picture, we'd really need a side profile to be able to tell.

Keep in mind though that these are just terms "we" use to describe different chi head and body shapes, the standard calls for one thing and that is a well domed skull, so thus that is more correct and desirable as you mentioned.

Puppies do change, Trigger had a perfect apple domed skull as a puppy at 8 weeks and nice short correct muzzle, but his muzzle has lengthened quite a bit although is still = to about 1/2 his skull length it is longer than I prefer even though "technically" it still fits the AKC standard. He also doesn't have as domed of a skull but is really, really, really cute anyway!

If you look on my siggy you can see both Pixie and Darcy have an apple dome head and short nose where as Billy and Bo have more of a deer head shape and longer muzzle. x
