Default Is Ousi Purebred?...Critique? *PICTURE HEAVY*

First off, I have asked her vet about her "skinniness" and she said it was fine and she was in great health. She said that is just her. It bothered me at first after seeing pictures of other Chi's... I still wish I could plump her up, but I love me some fat puppies. hahah ((I know, never make a Chi overweight- hip issues....))

Now that thats out of the way -I'm just wondering if she is purebred. I was told she was an apple head, but after looking around she looks more like a deer head.... She has a long nose, so I wasn't sure. Her ears did stand up when I first got her, but then laid down later. Come to find out the vet said it was bc I used to pet her on her head and my hand would lay her ears down when I did. They said it makes the cartridge break down Ooops...
Also, about her tail...when she isn't super happy (like when mommy or daddy comes home!) she rarely has it up. I don't know why.... (she hates cameras too, so that doesn't help...)
Anywho, I never* ever ever everrrrr plan on breeding her bc she is just so petite I would be afraid I would lose her (Plus, one Chi is enough for me! haha) We were told she was pure when we bought her, but we didn't get to see the dad and we have no papers (bc they said we didn't pay enough for her...) so I have no idea. also we used to have a male that was purebred (akc) and they don't look too much alike. He was a long coat and was fluffy. haha.











and honestly, this last one is for my amusement. She was scratching her ear

She is adorable!! She kind of reminds me at an Italian Greyhound as she is soo skinny and especially because of her ears. Maybe I am wrong though and she is purebred. I don't really think that you can tell for sure.
Never heard that about the ears though. I kept doing that to Rocky as well but his ears are fine!?

But no matter whether she is purebred or not, she is a gorgeous girl! Especially like the first pic of her .

I knowwww... For a while I tried to make her bigger- and couldn't and that's when I asked her vet about it. She does eat her mommy's people food a good bit too so I would think she would have gained- but no. They have done blood work and checked for about every kind of parasite (she's on Trifexis...) and checked out a bunch of other things...no problems at all. So I have NO idea why she is skinny, except for the vet saying "that is just her"...

Thank you! I love her wayyy* more than one should love a puppy. hahah <3

Get her on a better quality food and then see. She may remain her size and shape or with better nutrition she may fill out some.

thanks for your advice! is there one food that is better than the others for "filling them out"? Would a raw diet be advisable?
