Little dogs, such as chis, you can usually expect that they will achieve most of their growth in the first 5 months-they usually reach their adult size by 6 months, but then they will start to fill out. With very slight increase in heighth. Usually by a year they have reached their max. If you are breeding, then you want to wait until the third heat cycle to breed-close to two years before their first litter.
So, by the weight chart-you will probably see an adult close to 5-5.5lbs

I was told you can finally say your chi is done growing by age 2...that being the age where you can breed your female. By age one they are about as big as they are going to be and might fill out slowly still over the following year.

I agree with quikdog...1 year for their bone structure to be developed but they can always grow bigger around the belly!

Auggie seemed to spurt taller between 5 and 7 months and then slowed down again. He is 9 months today and weighs 5.34 lbs
