Default Breeding 4 lb female

Greetings ! Okay, you all have been so extremely helpful to me before so I am going to ask all of you for "your" opinion. I have a beautiful tri smooth coat, apple head female that I know would throw some beautiful pups. She may not get bigger than four pounds and I have been told different opinions on whether a four pound Chi should be breed. I have a beautiful long coat male Chi I want to buy but he charts at four pounds as well. I do NOT want to breed my baby if she will be at risk. I have totally fallen in love with this breed but learning so many different opinions on them. I am aware that some times c sections are necessary. My concern is not that, but the health and well being of my baby. I guess I am asking if any of you have bred your small females and if so what was the outcome and size of stud ? The little boy I want to buy is beyond gorgeous with a good pedigree. Confused. Thank You so much. Blessings.

no i wouldnt , have seen to many on this forum go through so much heart ache , but even if my girl was 6lb i still wouldnt breed her , i would never forgive myself if anything happened to her .
my cousins chi which she got as an older dog from a breeder nearly died giving birth and she is around 8lb so no matter what size there is a risk but 4lb to me would just be to small and a high risk .

I know, I am beginning to decide I won't risk it. I get so many differing opinions. I would most definitely get an ultra sound done. She is no where near ready to breed anyway. I would not do it until she was 18 months. She was 2.6 lbs at 4 months of age. I am not sure what her actual adult weight would be, but I have been told 4 lbs. I would never forgive myself either if something happened to her. She is my baby. The little fellow I am getting sure will throw some cute pups but I think I am going to let someone else enjoy that. I get so many differing opinions. Thank you so much for responding so quickly. I love this board for that. No one ever sits on pins and needles for a response.

Hi, I am new here, but have 50+ years experience with Chi's
I wouldn't breed from her at all if she is just a pet
Many people think it's easy, but it definitely isn't, neither would I let your dog be used at stud unless he is an excellent example of the breed & his pedigree is sought after.
Once a male has been used at stud, then that's all they have on their minds & can become a nuisance, urinating on furniture & trying to get out to find a mate.
Leave the breeding to the experts & just enjoy your Chi's as pets

Is she registered? Is she is then have a look through her pedigree and do research. Phone the breeders of the first 3 generations to find out as much information as you can and about patella problems, if the dam's needed a c section and what the parent and pups weights were. Then do the same with the stud dog's.
A big bitch can throw tiny pups and a small bitch large pups you can never tell. same with the stud!
If she's not registered then get her spayed! You never know what dodgy breeding is behind her.
I'm guessing your in america if your talking about breeding long to smooth?

Thank You Lou Lou.. Yes, I am in America. My Tess is NOT registered but comes from a VERY reputable breeder who has bred for a long,long time. Her grand parents are on site as is her parents. Both being small. Mother is four pounds, dad 5. Mom has not had any c sections nor has grandma. I would test against the std I was told about with any female I stud my male to as well as my male. There doesn't appear to be any Patella problems and the Molera she had has closed. As mentioned I would not breed her until she was 18 months. I have a vet that does ultra sounds which I of course would do. I see your beautiful doggy has gotten some ribbons. Awesome ! Beautiful dog for sure ! Thanks so much for helping me. The Chi is new to me. I just love them. It sure is a love at first sight relationship isn't it ?

I'm not really into telling people to not breed, to many people will say don't breed her with out giving advice when why should you listen to them and go off and do it anyway. Then problems happen and no one has given any knowledge. (I'm not a breeder so don't know much but will be starting my breeding program sometime not so soon lol) it sounds like your doing research maybe you could ask her breeder to be your mentor. 4lbs is still quite small but not too small. I would be to scared but that's because I'm a wimp lol I know a lot of people who have breed smaller bitches that just popped out the pups.
How old is your girl? Maybe she will grow on a bit more than 4lbs u never know what could happen.
Thank you very much by boy is very special to me but I'm bias haha

I never for a moment thought you were telling me whether to breed or not. I truly appreciate the advice I receive from here. I am a "whimp" too and that is why I am asking so many questions and researching My doggies are my babies and they are TOTALLY spoiled rotten. Just like a kid I am one who really wants to know the best for my babes. I am sooo excited about my new one. Haven't gotten him yet.
