Red face Long hair Chihuahua, or Chi-Pom Mix? Pictures attached.

Hi Everyone!
We adopted Twinkie from a Shelter. They got her from a breeder who no longer wanted to breed, or something like that? The breeder was going to keep Twinkie, but at the last second gave her to the shelter. She's pretty adorable, and we don't really care either way- but we're pretty sure she's not full long hair chihuahua like we were told. Again, we don't care- we're just curious. She's not so much long-hair as she is fluffy lol. She definitely has the chihuahua face+ body- but she's a fluffball. Our vet said they could always do the bloodwork down the road to find out, but I don't know. I don't really want to make her have blood taken just for our curiosity, ya know? Wouldn't really be fair to her. It's not like we're trying to show her or anything major, we're just curious. So I attatched some pictures (well, I think I did anyway. I'm not great at computer stuff). If anyone has any thoughts let me know! Thanks

She's looks long hair full chi to me, she's adorable!

Sugar was v fluffy wen she was a pup and Spice was more smooth and sleek long hair as a pup, now they r pretty much the opposite, Spice is fluffy long hair and Sugar is sleek long hair, they are all different

Hi, she looks full chi to me. My lil one is 'fluffy' at the moment. I think she'll stay like that til her coat comes in properly, everyone else will probably know when that'll be. BTW she's gorgeous

She definitely looks like a full Chi to me. How old is she? If she is still young, she may just not have her adult coat in yet. Some long haired Chis don't get their adult coats until two years old... Or maybe she just has a full, fluffy coat. To me, her coat doesn't look like that of a Pom.

She's only 3 months, just a baby. Good to know! Thanks!!

She is absolutely gorgeous by the way! She will be a stunner when she grows up!

May I ask where you live that you found a pure bred chi puppy at a shelter? I'm searching petfinder casually, hoping to find a little girl eventually, and I'm curious.
