Question Critique Chloe?

Hi, I was wondering if someone could tell me if Chloe has any show prospects? Or what are her good and/or bad qualities? She is a 15 week old long haired Chihuahua, currently around 2 pounds . Thanks in advance!!!

I'm not a judge for sure, but does anyone think she is a little long in the back? I know this is a growing baby.... Also a big problem among 'show' chi's.

I agree that her back looks a little long, though I know next to nothing about showing.
Either way, she is so freaking cute! That face!!

I'd be concerned with her bite. Her mouth looks wry to me in the first photo, perhaps she is overshot?

She has nice rear angulation and lovely large flaring ears which are set correctly.

She is very long in the back (chis are meant to be slightly longer than they are taller) and she looks like she is wry (jaws don't align properly) and also possibly
Over shot. Also her Topline isn't level but it's not severe and I would expect it to level as she grows.

You've stacked her nicely but as she's holding her tail herself u don't need to hold her bum.. And if u just put a couple of fingers under her chin or pinch her cheek it'll keep her head in position. A judge would want to check the depth of her chest and your hand is blocking it. Ihopefully her head will develop and her expression will improve.

She's very sweet but I personally wouldn't show her.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for everyone's input! It was interesting to know a basic evaluation of her.

I tried to get some shots of her teeth, to confirm if she is overshot or not? It was pretty hard though, so forgive me if the pictures don't really help! I also tried stacking her holding just her head. The reason I held her by the chest and bum in the first few photos is because she is so spazzy it's hard to keep her still xD. It was also hard to hold her head cause it's so tiny! Lol. I'm much better at stacking my much calmer 3.5 year old Yorkie xD.

I probably won't be showing her (except possibly try out some local puppy classes?), but it's very interesting to know how she compares to the breed standard . Anyway, here are the pics:

The vet would of checked her bite for you/her breeder. My pups saw 3 vets all checked the bites even though I told them they were scissor lol.

No reason why you can't show her at fun shows. I wouldn't at any breed shows myself because I personally don't think she's show quality

Try stack her so her Topline is straight though even though it's roached you want to hide that on the table
