Default Chi standard

I've been looking around at chi pups and obviously if there are photos of the parents you can get an idea of how the pups will look, but i realised i'm not totally sure how their heads/ muzzles should look as pups if they will end up close to standard. Honey is the only chi i know so not much experience. If anyone has any photos of their chis heads as pups then adults please post them!

Have a look at Jayda's posts about Jewel and ivy growing up. Both are show quality.
Generally puppies have wider heads and shorter muzzles, so a narrow head and narrow or long muzzle on a puppy will get more pronounced as they grow.

Chihuahua puppies share certain qualities with all other dogs as puppies. They're formed a certain way to make birthing them easier.

All puppies, no matter the breed, are born with round heads, thick, short muzzles, relatively short torsos, and very short legs in relation to their bodies. They need to be as streamlined as possible to exit the birth canal.

It's only as they grow that their features become more apparent. So seeing a chihuahua puppy at 6 weeks is not really going to give you a very accurate indication of what they'll look like as adults.
