We recently added a new member to our family his name is Boss and is currently 9 weeks old and weighs in at 0.12kgs he is a Silver color which I have been told is extreamly rare which I was not aware so we were happy when we found out we didin't pay 1000s for him becuase of his color alone.

Sorry those pictures didnt come through? However the first picture you posted here did. There is a posting delay and that is why it took awhile for your posts to show up ;-)

As I said in your other thread he is really beautiful. However there is really no such thing as a rare color in Chihuahuas although there are some colors you do not see as much as others. A lot of times breeders will tell someone that it is a rare color to make it more attractive to buyers or that they really havent seen it much themselves so assume it is a rarer color. From your picture he looked like he could be a blue variation. I am sure someone will chime in soon and give you a better idea of what the coat color is called on your Chi.

He is a very pretty color though :)

Welcome to the forum! Boss is definitely a cutie. Love the name. :)

He is a gorgeous blue and tan tri. My absolute favorite color. I have two blue chi's. :)
Blue chi's can range from a dark steel grey to an almost silvery lavender color. We have quite a range of blue chi's on this forum. I think you're going to love it! I'm glad to hear that you didn't pay a small fortune for him because of his coloring. Chi's come in a vast array of colors, some are just a little harder to find, but I wouldn't say rare.
I look forward to seeing more pics of him! :)

Hes adorable! One of my favorite colors :) As others have already said, in chihuahuas that silvery color is called blue, some are lighter than your guy and some are darker. Our Miley is a lighter blue and tan. They are beautiful, but there really arent any "rare" colors for chis, they come in pretty much every coat color.

Silver definitely seems like a more accurate name than blue! He may darken up, Miley was the only light blue in her litter, she had two brothers that were steel and blue as well. All of the blues I think are just beautiful. We are going to get just one more chi probably next spring, and Id like to get either a merle or another blue.
Is Boss your first chi?
Looking forward to more pics!

No we used to have a Chi we rescued when he was 2 years old but unfortunatly after 2 years of desperate attempts to change his ways we could no longer keep him so we found him a quiet home with an elderly lady with no men in her home and no dogs. We were very undecided when it came to getting another Chi as we did have a Bullmastiff but he got stolen I wanted another Bullmastiff but my husband wanted another Chihuahua we had a deposit on a Bullmastiff and still do but the last litter born all male brindles died on the table so we ended up getting this little guy until our Bully is ready sometime this summer I know it is one extreme to the next considering Boss will most likely be no more than 6 or so pounds and the Bullmastiuff is guarenteed to be at least 160 so one extreame to the other but they will be the best of friends :)

Here is a picture of what we will be expecting in our Bullmastiff puppy the 1st picture is of a male puppy "Taz" from the last litter he is currently weighing in at over 170 pounds this would be our new puppies brother and the 2nd picture is of the sire "Big Bear" he is about 170 pounds these dogs are purebred Bullmastiffs but ALOT larger than most Bullmastiffs which can sometimes get them turned down in shows but I like them bigger I guess.

He is beautifull, and def blue, i have one too, not rare, once you start looking them up there everywhere, unfortunatly sometimes they come with their own little trait, ie. alopecia, miine has it , but from what iv read on here and researched, not all get it.

Aww I love bullmastiffs! I actually tried to convince my fiance to get one instead of getting our yellow lab, he loves big dogs but doesnt like walking them so I thought a bullmastiff would be a better fit as theyre large but "lazy owner" friendly :) No luck, he loves labs. I was thinking Bear looked larger and more "mastiffy". Theyre beautiful dogs, Im sure youre excited for your puppy.

Awww Boss is adorable!
I have a blue tri too.
She was lighter when she was younger so he may darken a wee bit.
Darla has darkened, but still looks blue.
Here a some pics to show the difference...

Here she was at 3 weeks old.

6 weeks

More recently in dad's arms

I like the Mastiffs as well and the giant breeds. I have a Dane I show in AKC Conformation. Bear does look to me more like an English Mastiff in the picture, 170 lbs seems to be pretty heavy for a Bull? The Bulls I usually see are very short. What happened to the litter that died on the table? Stillborn?

Hi and welcome.. Boss is such an adorable little boy! The pics of him with your beautiful baby are precious.

The shots of the mastiffs (pup and sire) are wonderful. It seems alot of us like the "toy" and the "large" breeds. lol I currently have a "Bear" who comes in at 90 pounds, he is a mixed breed rescue, but a big ole baby. :)

In the past, I have owned 3 lovely black danes, and adored them.. I was so broken hearted when I lost my last one at 8 years old, and just couldnt bring myself to get attached to another since their life spans are shorter than the smaller breeds.
