Wink Small baby!

This will sound bizarre but pablo really doesn't look his weight lol
Last time he was weighed he was 4 pounds the vet said he was pretty much done growing and if anything he'll put on maybe half a pound!
He's really short too but he's got a massive head maybe thats where all his weight is ha!! I only realised when I seen a 3 pounder chi and he was much bigger than pabs.. So its defos all in his huge head

What size/weight are your babies? Included a pic with my hand next to him to show you the size!

I know what you mean, my Bella is a hefty 6.5lb but she's actually really small. She's really lean not overweight at all so I don't know where the weight is, I think she must have heavy bones.

Doug weighs a whopping 6.5 too and I have NO IDEA where it's hiding. I know a bit of it is water weight from his meds, but ahhh. He has the frame of a much smaller dog.

Its crazy isn't it! I do like that he isn't really fragile like some due to his extra weight

800grams atm hoping for 3kg at adult age but most likely he will be a bit under. 😊 also I should say I do want him to conform to the standard but I would rather him on the heavier end regardless because I think its just healthier, I really don't agree with breeding for a smaller and smaller size saying that I think he may be bang on 2.7kg. My breeder thinks a tubby pup is better off too even if shown.

My Ava is teeny tiny. She fluctuates between 3.4-3.6 very sturdy lbs. she is small in size but she's not to be messed with lol. She's a very strong girl. While I wouldn't describe her as leggy, she is not exactly short and stocky if that makes sense. So she's not the tallest of small Chi's but not the shortest either. She measures at a measly 8" . Very short in length to my older 2 chis who are 10.5 and 11" and 7.4 lbs. Braxton is 4.6 lbs and 9" long and kinda short in height. I think chi's standard and above are more common. I don't know how it is for you guys, but I see more 6 lb and above chi's than chi's that are in the 2-3 lb range. Actually I feel like I see more tiny miniature poodles and Yorkies in my area than chi's. I've only seen in person one chi, smaller than Ava. And I live near a couple that are closer to her and Brax's size. Pics don't do her small size justice since she's not all that short in height.

Here she is standing next to big sis Kendall who's 7.4 lbs 11" long and much taller
