The open fontanel is an acceptable trait in chis. Some will never close, you just have to be careful to prevent anything from hitting or bumping it.

Meoqui had a fair sized one as a tiny puppy. It took till about 6 months or so before it closed. I can feel like a teeny groove where it once was now. She's 14 months.
It's worrying when they are small and have them. I know Meoqui was less than a pound when we got her and she's only now just over 3 pounds. They can seem like such a big hole on a such a teeny dog. She can play pretty rough with our Jack Russell and is in to everything so I was relieved when it closed.

Penelope still has a small one now, much smaller then as a puppy. I don't worry about it at all. She plays with other dogs (and cats hehe) with no issue. The one thing I am extra cautious about is their delicate tracheas. I think that has more potential of being armed. I just use a harness instead of a collar to prevent pressure on the throat area and watch little children around her to make sure they don't grab her by the neck. My vet is excellent with my chi, I think you just have to look around and try to get referrals.

My new puppy has it a few years ago our first Chi had an open fontanel. He had a great life. Bruiser was happy, curious and most of all very loving. He was a good companion for my special needs son.

One of our favourite Chi friends at the Dog Park has it and it doesn't slow him down at all. His person says she was a little bit sad because she had hoped he would be a "show quality" dog, but she accepts the fact that this is not something we want to pass along and had him neutered to make 100% sure that he will never sire an "oops" litter.
