Default My chihuahua is very large

My wife and I got what was supposed to be a chihuahua puppy from friends of ours....he was a big puppy and has only got bigger. 12 pounds at 5 months and he isn't fat...his brothers and sisters were all small and very chihuahua looking. He has the chihuahua attitude and looks like a big long hair. I will post a pic soon.
I know this size is not the norm but does it happen?
Thanks
Tom

I have a large chihuahua as well - he is 12 pounds at 5 years old. When I got him I thought he was going to be a purse dog lol. I have seen them in all sizes. Whenever we go to the dog park I get "wow that's a big chihuahua" but I love him just the way he is

Yeah, we have a few larger chihuahuas on here. My largest full chi is 8.7 pounds. I have a mix that is larger. But in my town, 12 to 18 pound chis are not unheard of.

I would guess he is either mixed or had really large parents! Of course, 12 lbs is still a small dog, just over the chihuahua standard. A friend of mine has an 11 lb chihuahua, and he doesn't seem that huge compared to my 6 lb boy.

I think the pics will show whether its chi or not. Weight varies. Audrey is 4.5 pounds and her parents were both smaller than her. Her little mate is smaller too and he's a boy.
