Default Meet our new 6 pound 8-week old puppy!

So I am being a good uncle and decided to gift my two other puppies to my nephew! That prompted us to get another puppy! Our preference has always been a brindle chi mix, so we have got this new addition. We have not named him yet.

We also wonder, how can an 8-week old puppy weigh 6 pounds? He is not overweight at all. His parents weigh around 14 pounds! How can a chihuahua weigh that much? His legs are particularly muscular and thick. His tail is EXTREMELY think as well. Do you guys think he is a pure breed, chihuahua mix, and if so, with what? He does look a bit like Dashdund? His ears are flopping right now. We are kinda disappointed because we have always wanted a tiny chi mix like Tyler and Bobby!

well thats probably about the right weight if the parents are 14lbs, mostly if you wanted a smaller type puppy you would get one from smaller parents, especially with being a mix there is no way to predict what breed characteristics are inherited from each parent so won't necessarily be small just because chihuahua is in there

Like Chloe said, his current weight seems about right if his parents are 14 pounds... As for the breed, he looks quite Jack Russell to me so that would explain why he's bigger built and not tiny like Chihuahuas. Out of curiosity, why didn't you keep one of your other puppies if they were what you were looking for?

I am also confused. You had a tiny brindle Chi mix, why didn't you just keep him?
I don't see Chi in this puppy, he does look rather like a Jack Russell/Beagle mix I knew.

No matter his size colour or looks to me he his perfect !! He has the most adorable little face you are very lucky to have him. If you wanted a small dog the key is to look at the parents and if they are big that means the puppy will be large 9 times out of 10. Unless you brought a chi from a breeder you can't guarantee that any puppy will even look like a chi. With mixes thats all part of the fun of owning a puppy as you won't know how they will look when they grow up. he is lovely.

I have a brindle chi mix. She is 1/2 Frenchie...and full grown is 8 1/2 pounds. The other girl her sister is also the same weight. They were 2 1/2 pounds at 8 weeks. They were purposely bred as a hybrid, I knew the breeder and about the Mom & Dad. This is a Mexican Frenchie.
This is the color "brindle" on the dark one.

I am confused? This puppy is not Brindle but your last puppy was so if that is what you were wanting why give that one away?
