Default Small eyed chihuahua!

I took these pics of the girls today, they both weigh exactly the same at the minute- 3 and a quarter lbs. I think they look similar enough in shape, apart from their eyes and their bites. But Spices eyes are much smaller and less rounded!

Are chihuahuas eyes meant to look more like Sugars or Spices?? Just curious! My guess is Sugars eyes are more to breed standard?

Yes, Sugar's eyes are more 'to standard' but they both are beautiful girls

Ruby is my best bred dog and her eyes are smaller than my others. Eden's head is mostly eyes!

I agree with flippedstars that they are gorgeous girls!

Eyes should be large but not protruding. Sugar's are probably more to standard. My Axle has small eyes and small ears for a Chi, Chloe has huge protruding eyes and Winston seems to be in proportion - guess that's bound to happen when yuo have 3!

Thanks guys!

Ye I thought so. Spices eyes are really squinty lol, and more oval shaped, I only just realised wen I was taking those pics and they were beside each other!

Jesuschick Ruby's eyes do look just a tad smaller than ur other 2s but they are much more rounded than Spices aren't they? Funny how they can look so different yet are the same breed!

You CAN get big eyes though without them being protruding...my Charm has 'those' eyes

Her ears are set too high but as far as eyes go, this is about as 'perfect' as you can get for eyes!



Correct eyes are becoming harder and harder to find unfortunately and it is often part of what makes chihuahuas appear so adorable and babylike

FWIW, if you see too much 'white' at the inside of the corner of the eye (really, any, in an adult), that means the eye socket is too small. We call that wall-eyed and while it's not the end of the world it certainly isn't ideal and something that most good breeders try to breed away from.
