Haven't been on in a while as i have had a full house with 6 chi now down to 4 again :)Lil Clyde found an awesome home.I still have lil Bonnie,but took in 3 rescue babies (chi rat terrier crosses) that all have found a home but one very tinny lil one.
So she is so so tiny and was born 12.12.2011 which makes her 15 weeks and only one pound!!she has kinda longer legs but is small as she can stand in my hand!!!but when does a rat terrier/toy rat terrier stop growing?I know chi's will normally stop growing around 6-9 months but do toy rat terriers too?She looks more like an apple head chi too me??Will have some pictures up soon of her :D Her mom looked to be at least 6 pounds but on the taller side and I did not get to see how tall her dad was..But she is only 1 pound maybe 1 in a half if that tiny tiny lil thing at 15 weeks so I want to say she will be under 5 for sure full grown but I'm not sure about rat terrier puppies and when they stop growing?Anyone know how big she might be when she is full grown?
ok got pictures of her :D was pretty hard as she does not sit still :D

I sure want to see pics of this precious little peanut!

I do not know about Terriers but Chis are not considered full grown until 18~24 months.

Are you positive she just weighs one pound in the pics? She honestly looks like 2 pounds. That's the same size Brody was when we brought him home, just a handful and he was 2 pounds on the dot. It's easy to underestimate weight. Just from the proportions of the hands and the dog, it looks like she weighs more than a pound. Have you weighed her or had her weighed at the vet or are you just guesstimating?

She is a real cutie. I still think she will be small as an adult. Probably right around 4-5 pounds.

guesstimating :D she could be 2 possible she not really chunky tho she is skinny no rib showing sick skinny but compared to my other lil chi baby she is skinny.Like brody he has the more lean look than the wide chest or sausage chi look not stalky at all.She does look allot like him.

She looks a lot like Hotchi did! :D
At 16wks he weighed 1.6lbs and now at almost 2yrs he is 4.9lbs. Depending on diet and excersise it could be more or less. She is so cute tho, if i was in FL i would prob adopt her. I want another female, preferably a show chi but i will take a rescue just the same :)

yeah, it's so easy to underestimate weight! :rolleyes: It does look like she'd going to be more of the lean leggy body style. She has the cutest little face. I think she's going to be super adorable grown up and a perfect size. Still little but not super tiny.

Thanks for adding the pics. She is precious and I absolutely love her coloring. I have 2 that sound like her body type. One is 3.5 pounds, the other 4.0. Long, lean and leggy!

That super cute puppy looks just like Venus except Venus has bigger eyes. I always get asked if Venus is a rat terrier, fox terrier, or something other than a chi. I don't know what she is because she was a stray from the shelter. Most people think she's a chi, but she could be like your puppy for all I know. Venus hovers around 4 lbs give or take a couple of ounces. She's around 4 years old.

She looks to be around the same weight as Charlie and he is just 2 lbs he's 13 1/2weeks old she will probubly weigh 4 to 5 lbs at full grown. I love her little pink dress she looks so adorable she's got really long legs doesn't she. Her face is defiantly from the Chihuahua side of the family she is so cute.
