Default What should I call my new puppy?

Hi everyone!

I haven't been on here for ages, but am getting a new chi puppy next Friday

He is beige/white little teacup boy ...don't know how to attach his photo, but you can see from my avatar...that's him.

I thought maybe Eddie or Bobby..but not sure!

Any ideas would be appreciated!!

He looks so manly, something masculine for sure. He does look like an Eddie to me. PS He's adorable.

I just had a puppy through puppy class called Sven and I thought that was a great name. He's very cute, although you are aware that the teacup thing is a myth? They're all just Chihuahua's regardless of size.

Default Teacups

yes I know about the teacup myth. However he won't reach 2lb when fully grown. He isn't smallest of litter, his brother is the same size. Nice strong little pups with a good Apple dome head and short legs. I don't like chihuahuas which are "leggy" and tall...took me a long time and a lot of money to get something like this! I do like the name Sven, I think it's Swedish isn't it? Will have to check out its meaning x

I agree he does look manly!
I would've thought Bruce, or Buddy? And Bobby is cool as you suggested!
Charlie, Bruno, Franko/Franco, George, Geoff
Lincoln is a cool name also.

I went through the alphabet! All the way through then stuck with Archie. (Sorry i did do it a bit up there but you get my drift)

Although he looks manly he is very soft and very tiny...so am looking for a soft boys name ...he won't even reach 2lb in weight.

I like Eddie, Stevie...not sure about Bobby now

Do you have a picture you can upload to photobucket and post here? How old is the little guy and what's his current weight in pounds?
To me, all of the names above are great names. Just not my opinion of a "soft" name. Most of them sound a little macho to me lol. We all have different tastes in names. I personally prefer human names for my dogs, such as the ones above. Here's a list of some of my fave boy names. All of which are pretty soft names.

Liam

Ian

Micah

Kalep

Aiden

Reese

Tyler

To name a few. I can't wait to hear what name you decide on for him 😊.

Don't be too certain about his final weight, these things are impossible to predict.
Chis that are 2lbs as adults are extremely rare, Chis that are 2lbs and healthy are rarer still
Chis should ideally be between 4 and 6lbs according to the standard. A 4lb Chi is an extremely small dog, what most people would consider 'teacup'
Most 'teacup' puppies are either runts which end up as big (or bigger) than their littermates, or they are much younger than stated. it is not uncommon for 5-6 week old pups to be sold as 12 week 'teacups'
Genuinely tiny puppies usually have health issues (liver shunt, hydrocephalus etc)
No responsible breeder would breed from a bitch under 4.5lbs, so even using a very small dog does not guarantee tiny puppies.
You certainly should not be paying extra for a puppy that is expected to mature at 2lbs, any breeder selling smaller pups for more money should be avoided. It is a marketing ploy
