I everyone. My name is Brittany and I live in Michigan. I have a 1 1/2 year old mini chihuahua named Petunia, but we call her Peanut. She is about 4.5 pounds and the light of my life!

Brittany, welcome to the forum. Your 'mini' chihuahua is within the AKC standards for a chihuahua. She is right in the middle of the range of 2-6 pounds for a 'show' dog. I have a 4 pounder too. She is just smaller than the 'usual' pet chihuahua. There are 10-12 pound purebred chi's out there too! At any rate I'm glad you have joined us. Lots of nice people here. Ask any question/s about chi's and you'll probably get multiple replies.

Hi, Brittany! Peanut sounds adorable! This is a great place to meet other chihuahua owners and ask any questions you have.

I've had two Chihuahuas littles before, one 2 pounds 1 oz., one 2 pounds 11 oz., and they were both still within the breed guidelines. Nowadays, my littlest is Cocoa, 5 pounds, my biggest two are Cowboy, 9 pounds, he needs to lose some weight, but he's handicapped and walking isn't an option, and Babushka, 10 pounds, she's a little butterball. She's my daughter with Down syndrome's dog and she sneaks her treats.
