I know there are a few of you on here that breed chi's so I thought this might be an OK place to ask this question.
Generally do you find pre-weaned weights to accurately reflect what a puppy will weigh as an adult? I have a deposit on a 3 wk puppy that apparently is a very greedy nurser, and currently is 17.1 oz. That puts him around 6 lbs as an adult (which is just fine with me, I just hope he can be gentle w/ my other pup!).
I have another pup from the same dam, who is about 3.2 lbs now at her full grown weight. At the same age of 3 wks she was charting to be about 5.5 lbs. The sire is different, but about the same size as my current pup's sire was.
I know none of this is an exact science, I am just so curious how it will all turn out LOL.
Should I expect he will be around 6 lbs or should I wait and see how he is charting after he is weaned?
I also know sometimes the chart is right on, and sometimes it is not. So hard to tell!
Here he is on Saturday taking a nice big yawn:
