Our chi has really small dainty paws, I often see other dogs who's owners say they are full chi's but there paws are huge almost like a jack russels paws and the shape of their face looks more jack russell, I am just wondering if there are chi's with really large paws or should they be dainty.

Full bred chis come in all shapes and sizes, so I would imagine their paws would, too. Smoke has some big honking paws, Gonzo has tiny petite ones. Both are full blooded chis.

roxi has got tiny paws but the other day i met another chihuahua the other day and she was younger than roxi (6 months old) and she was twice the size of her and they are both full pedigree chis. i think it depends on th esize of the mum and dad

Annie has really dainty paws too...

Breed standard says chihuahuas are supposed to be 6 lbs or under... I can't imagine their paws could be too big if they are breed standard chihuahuas, but of course there are chi's out there that aren't standard for their breed.

My boys have bigger paws than my girls, if you're comparing them size-to-size. But they also have very different builds. I have two pups that are 3 lb 10 oz, and the boy has much bigger paws than the girl. He's the one I am showing and is built very "correctly". He'd look silly w/ smaller paws, but my girl would look silly w/ bigger ones, so I really don't know!

Tango and Jazz have very delicate looking paws and feet. Jazz's are slightly bigger than Tango's, which makes sense because she's half a pound bigger than him.

If I remember correctly, all your chis are tiny, so that makes sense! ;)
Yep. :lol: Tiny paws for tiny babies. :) I just adore their baby feet. :daisy:

Ryder has teeny paws, but he has a little chi friend that lives close that is about the same size and him with quite big paws for such a wee little guy. :rolleyes:

The cobby body chi's have more of what I would call a boxy shapped paw. Willow is a cobby and hers are like that. Ivy and Fern, are 3 lbs and have THE teeniest feet ever. Super narrow and dainty, I would say the size of my pinky finger.

Bella has "medium sized" paws on long legs for her little 5-pound body. Her paws are white and look as if she's wearing white sneakers. :D Bella is 100% tomboy - athletic and runs fast like a race horse.

Lina has small paws and skinny legs for her 4.5 pound size. She is a dainty little princess in a chihuahua body. :)

Draco has very skinny long legs and tiny little paws. I used to worry about them, they are so fragile.

Lavender has tiny, dainty little paws and everyone comments on them. No one ever asks if she's a boy or a girl. She is a very girly little girl at 5.5 pounds with a long, flowing coat and gorgeous plumed tail.
