Default Showing question

I am looking at a gorgeous AKA little girl that is for sale, but she's 7 months and under 3 pounds. Is this too small to show?

No she's still within breed standard and therefore you could still show her - but whether she will be sound enough or good bite is another question. Obviously I wouldn't breed from such a small one - if you are likely to want to breed in the future I would say no.

Ok, thank you. Still in the looking phase. Not sure I want to breed, but to have a finished chi would be interesting and, who knows, I may like showing.

A lot of people wouldn't buy a small one as some judges will knock a bitch if they are not big enough to breed from - my argument with that is that it doesn't say in the breed standard that they have to be bred from.

Here's a picture of her. I would love your opinion of her. I know it's not the best picture, but it's all I have right now. And she's going through her puppy uglies.

She looks quite nice - what's her mouth like? She probably will fill out at bit as she gets older. I have a boy who looks very small but weighs 5lb 3oz - to look at him you would think he would be pushing 4lb

I haven't contacted the breeder yet, I wanted to ask here if she could be shown first. I will contact her now and ask a million questions. lol

As said above ive seen bitches be dismissed due to being too small. Shes lovely but her face isn't very clear from that photo. Get in touch and ask for some nicer photos, its worth a try is she far away?
