Default Pics of pup we are considering. Weight vs age?

Hey everyone
I posted a day or two ago about being nervous/anxious about adding a new dog/pup to our home. Talking with the breeder I am kind of surprised at her size. She is 10 weeks old and 2 lbs 12 ozs! Is she a chihuahua-sarus? Seems very large for her age. Anyone else have a chi who was this weight at 10 weeks?

First she's sooo pretty second bijoux was around that size I think and she's 7.9lbs at 6 months charting 8.5-9 lbs they do say a bigger chi is. Healthier chi but that usually only means over 3 lbs kinda thing and of course has many variables.

Basically I'd say if you would prefer a standard chi I don't think you will get it with her, when I get home I'll post the link for the chart I used for bijoux and it could give you a ballpark weight and you can see.

First off, she's beautiful. Smoke was around that, not sure exactly the same, but close. And he's 7 pounds 13 oz at 18 months.

Thanks for the replies. This pup is beautiful and she sounds sweet. Honestly color/size doesnt really matter to me, it's all about personality. I was just shocked because my dog Penelope (she was a stray) is around 6 pounds and a chi mix. My husband is really pushing the second dog thing. I personally would prefer an adult. Trying to convince him is hard though, he really wants a puppy.

Chi puppies I have to say are nothing compared to other breeds bijoux is a puppy and as far as puppy habits go I couldn't be happier but thats comparing to a golden puppy...dear lord was Lincoln a handful! Never ever again will I get a golden puppy he was a terror lol

Have you considered a rescue perhaps that could be even ground? I do get it though when i was looking for a pup I was torn between rescue and puppy I ended up becoming a foster for a cho rescue and getting a chi pup lol

Concideraton your options and make sure u enjoy and don't accidentally resent a puppy sometimes that happens and we don't even know it.

Thanks again I appreciate it. I have spoken with the breeder a little more and I really like her, she enjoys talking about the pups, she is really nice and the pups are well taken care of. My husband might win after all lol

Shes very cute! Is she blue or black? I cant tell from the pics. That seems a little big to me, Reese is about 6.5 lbs and was under two when we got him at 12 weeks. On the other hand, different pups grow at different rates and I dont think those growth charts are particularly accurate. Thats wonderful that you like the breeder, that makes all the difference. You can really tell when you bring a pup home if theyve been well cared for and loved at the breeders.
