I was told Olive was a pure breed, all I know about her parents is that her dad is long coated tri chocolate, and that Olives coloring is the same as her Dad. Her mom was a chi rescue, don't know the color....

I've been wondering myself if she could be mixed, mostly because of the shape of her head and snout, but then thought maybe she's just a dear head. Then yesterday while at the vet the doctor asked what she was mixed with and a lady at the store also asked what mix she was.

Not that it matters cause I love her no matter what but I'm curious to see what you all think.

She's now 4 months and 4 pounds....

I guess she might be mixed. Her snout and stop look less chi-like to me, particularly in that last picture. Like everyone else said though, she's really, really cute! She'll get bigger too than the chi standard, if she's already 4 lbs at 4 months. But then again, there are so many chis out there that aren't breed standard that it's really hard to tell without actually testing her. I know that you can actually get canine DNA type tests to find out what your dog is mixed with. As far as I know though, they don't test for every single breed, so if your dog's mix isn't on the list that the kit tests for then your results will be inconclusive.

Looks very chi-like to me! There are definitely so many that just aren't bred to the standard, so there are many different shapes and sizes! Her paws look a little bit larger to me, like she could be mixed with a little bit of a larger breed, but ... once again ... maybe just not bred to standard, and sometimes its hard to tell in pictures! Her ears are ABSOLUTELY chi! :D And she is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute though and I just LOVE her name.
