Default Is she long hair or short?

Hey guys... The breeder is pretty adamant that this little girl isn't going to be a long hair chi and will be shorter like her dad with maybe just some fluff around her tail. I'm surprising DH with her for Christmas and he wants a shorter coat so I don't want to buy her and then have her get long hair. As long as she doesn't get the wispy feathers or anything I think he would be fine with it. Neither of us are huge fans of long coat chi's. Since her mom isn't a super long coat and her dad appears to be short, do you think the breeder is correct? I attached some pics of the puppy and her parents. Thanks!!

She is adorable! Congratulations. To me it looks like she will be more like her Mom. It is so hard to tell, however her coat doesn't look short...she has fairly long hair on her chest and tufts behind her legs already. I am basing that on my three, two of which I saw as new borns and Lily from 7 weeks. They all had very short, smooth coats, that really never changed.
Hopefully you will have lots of opinions soon.
That being said, I can't imagine anyone not falling head over heals with her. Her dad is very much. A short hair and VERY handsome. I suspect she will fall somewhere in between the two of them.

Yes, I agree. I don't think she's going to be a SUPER long coat, but she doesn't look like a short coat to me. More like her mom, as Debby stated above. She is a beautiful little girl, and her dad is pretty handsome! Lol. Honestly, I'd go for it, even if you *think* you want a short coat...I never thought I liked long coat Chis either until we saw Gizmo as a puppy and absolutely fell in love at first site, and now I much prefer long coats to short. Both are totally adorable of course, you really can't go wrong either way

Thanks for the replies so far

I'm thinking maybe she will be in between long and short like you're all guessing, too. The breeder specifically said she won't have the feathers but might be a bit longer than a short coat. She should know and she knows I'm predominantly looking for a short coat so I hope she won't say this little one is going to be shorter to medium hair length to just make a sale. She sounds like a very caring reputable chi breeder. The puppy is just so darn cute and isn't expected to be larger than 2 pounds full grown. They're also saying her face will stay stubby and sweet like it is now. I just fell in love with her when I saw her and she doesn't look anything like our Angelina we lost which is good because I think I would not intentionally compare but probably would.

if the breeder is an experienced reputable breeder then I think she will be correct, personally I agree with the breeder. saying that though it is hard to tell.
I think you will fall in love with her no matter what any ideas on names if you do get her? shes adorable!
