Default Do you think your chi is to breed standard?

Ok so a few comments the other day made me wonder how many of us actually know what a chihuahua to standard should look like??

So what I want to know is do you think your dog is to the chihuahua breed standard??

Not quite. The breeder I got Alfie from said that although he is very good quality and of a high-standard, he is too long in the muzzle to fully meet the proper breed standard, which is why they decided against using him for breeding.

I'm actually very happy with this though, because I personally much prefer his length nose to the more snub-nosed Chi's.

Bryco is bred to standard, of course he has faults, but for the most part he conforms to it...

Oakley is the 2nd closest, but she is too tall and too thin framed. Her head would win some places here, not others. Shes too small anyway.

Trig, nope & Laurel, nope hahaha.

Trig looked standard at 8 weeks but not anymore! Either way I love him to death and he does look like a chihuahua but hes too long, lanky and tall, not to mention over-size. His head doming could be better too.

Me, too! It made me wonder and look. She looks like the pictures or drawings from charts that I see, but she is still a baby so she may change.

I'd be happy to know if someone (who knows more than me-which is really all of you!!) believes that she is or is not. She is AKC registered. Does not matter to my heart-I LOVE her no matter what she is, my precious girl!!

She looks pretty standard. Her coat is a bit thin/single coated, many SC chis shown have nice thick double coats and fluffy tails

Its hard to tell without seeing her "stacked", proportion comes into it...but her head has a nice stop and altho her ears may be a tiny bit high set they are the right size and shape

She also looks like she'll be under the 6 lb mark as an adult.

Zoey -- Nope, no way, no how, nu uh lol! She has roached back, fiddle front, wrong head, bad rear, and an overbite of about 1/8-1/4" But I love her just the same lol
Sebastian was pretty darn close, although was 'oversized (at 5.5#) for the ring for boys, and his personality wasn't there.
