Default Does this pup look hydro?

Had a friend send me pictures of a pup, and he doesn't look right to me His expected weight is 1 1/2 - 3 lbs max. He is more like a toy chihuahua. (red flags right there as there is no such thing as a 'toy chihuahua'.

I am not good yet at identifying hydro, but that puppy already looks like its 1+ lbs, how old is it? T is great w/ weighs, so I could be way off but she will be closer than me haha. Bryco was smaller than that pup looks at 10 weeks, and he was around 1 lb.

Its eyes do look a little goofy, but the camera is clearly not that pup's eyes friend...so IDK.

To me, the eyes also look a little weird but almost like they're sensitive to the flash? I'm not great at seeing it in pics unless it's obvious so I'm gonna say no, to me it doens't necessarily look hydro. I'd definitely want to see him in person though just because the eyes do look a little weird.

His head looks prominent but I don't think it's over large it's big compared to the rest of the litter. One eye looks googley but then daisy had a squint at 8 weeks it's fine now

It's hard to tell. I want to say yes, hydro, but not sure. I wonder if his eyes are always squinty like that? Does he run around, play? Are those other two pups his littermates? If so, then I'd be leaning toward saying yes. His eyes make him look unwell and ill. Does she have the pup home with her? I'd be worrying about hypoglycemia as well. He looks pooped out and lethargic in the third pic while the other pups are alert.

I'm going to say that something is wrong with the little guy. He does look "head heavy," but that doesn't always mean Hydro. His eyes are kinda squinty, and glazed over. Could be the flash, hard to tell. I can also see that he has a large molera, which doesn't mean he's ill, just wanted to mention it. I would ask for more pics. Since he is half the size, and more of his litter mates, and with the questionable "look," I'd pass. I'm not sure about the 1.5 to 3 lbs. grown. He's already about 1.5 lbs. there at 8 weeks old. She is probably charting him, which can be way off at that age. Even charting them at 12 weeks can (will) be way off. In the last pic, unless that is just an off pic, there is clearly something going on. Def. not the look of a healthy 8 week old pup.

That is what I told my friend, she just liked the 'tiny' factor, but I told her tiny isn't always good, and the way that pups head is shaped compared to it's littermates I would bet it has hydro. I told her if she's serious to ask the breeder for an MRI of his head (Which I doubt the breeder would go for). Anyways thanks for all your opinions.
