Question Full Bred Chihuahua or Mix??

So, I thought this would be the perfect place to get some advice on Princess. Princess is a little over a year now and I got her for my Grandma for Christmas last year. She really wanted a Chihuahua, but couldn't afford to spend lots of money to buy one, so I did I am very close with my Grandma and she means the world to me, so I figured a couple weeks before Christmas that I would get her a little girl. Let's just say I was stressed because I had two weeks to find one. I ended up finding Princess a couple hours away from where I lived. She was $350 and wasn't registered or anything. My Grandma didn't want a show dog or anything, so I figured it wasn't a huge deal. Anyways, the lady who I got her from admitted that it was an "oopsey" litter for sure. She had a very clean, nice home and was a very friendly girl. I got to see Princess' mom, but not the dad But she said that the dad was a full blood Chihuahua.

Anyways, people in my family say that she is a mix and it just kinda hurts my feelings because they seem very negative about her. My Grandma loves her to death and that's what matters, but it just bothers me. She does have a long muzzle and not as much of a prominante dome-like head, but she is such a sweetie and I think she looks like a Chihuahua. I think my family is use to seeing Tinkerbell, the one in the picture, who is 3.5 lbs and Mia who is also 3.5, so with Princess being around 5-6 and not as small, they assume she isn't full bred. She does have very course fur, is that normal in some Chis?

What do you think?

I think she is lovely. Not all chis have apple head, some are deer i think. I know a girl with a deer like one and looks exactly the same as princess just a different colour!

i think that she is adorable and she looks chi to me but not to the standards - i dont think that there is anything wrong with that if she is only a pet
shes very cute no matter what

What a cutie! She sure looks like a full bred Chihuahua to me. She is also in the breed standard anyway being between 5-6lbs... She does have more a "deer shape" but that doesn't mean she's a mix at all. Sounds like the fam is just used to the smaller Chi's. But she sure looks Chi to me...and an adorable one at that!

Most definitely a Chihuahua. Maybe not bred to standard as far as head shape, but who cares really if she's a pet. She's lovely and looks well loved!!

From seeing her pictures and how you describe her fur she reminds me a lot of Coco, my old chi. He was full and everyone always thought he was a mix. But I think he was the most handsome dog and the best looking chi I've ever seen. And princess is very beautiful too. I would be sooo happy to have another like her or coco.
