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
