Default Chi-Terrier Mix?? Long hair or Short Hair??

Hello everyone,

When I adopted Angel I was told she was a Chi-Terrier mix but they didn't know what Terrier breed, is there a way that I can tell what she maybe mixed with? Not sure if any experienced Chi owners can tell just by looking at her but I thought I would ask. Also, how would I know if she is long-haired or short-haired? Here a couple close-up pictures of her:

It's hard to say. I think I can see some jack russell in there, but she's not quite like the chihuahua jack russells I've seen before so I'm not too sure. You could get a DNA test done to find out, but either way she's cute. And also definitely short haired.

she looks like a big purebred chihuahua. Many poorly bred chihuahuas reach 10 pounds or more. How much does she weigh? How tall is she at the shoulder.?

Thank you ladies. When I got her she was 9lbs 10oz she was thinner but has definitely put on weight since I've had her. She goes to the vet Monday for a wellness visit so I will find out then her actual weight and measurements. As for her mix it's not really that important I just wondered if anyone could tell.

With her hair, yes it's obviously short now, lol but I just wondered if it was short because it was kept that way by those who had her previously. It is growing now, you can see it a little sticking out around the perimeter of her head and it is getting longer on her back, her chest area and one her tail. Again I was just wondering, I guess I can ask the vet Monday to see if they can tell.

Ah, that information wasn't in your first post. lol In that case I guess only time will tell. I still think she looks naturally short haired, but some short haired chihuahuas are a bit furrier than others so it's possible that the previous owners trimmed her hair a little.

The only mix I can think of is manchester terrier. She certainly shouldn't gain anymore weight! Make sure the vet/technician trim her nails on Monday. She looks adorable!

Manchester terriers are super rare, with the largest population in California. I would be super surprised if that was in the mix. Her chest and head look more like a rat terrier to me, but she could be purebred and big, as was mentioned! I think she is short-haired. I have seen dog grow a surprising amount of hair once they are on a better diet and in a good home.
