She looks pretty standard. Her coat is a bit thin/single coated, many SC chis shown have nice thick double coats and fluffy tailsMe, too! It made me wonder and look. She looks like the pictures or drawings from charts that I see, but she is still a baby so she may change.
I'd be happy to know if someone (who knows more than me-which is really all of you!!) believes that she is or is not. She is AKC registered. Does not matter to my heart-I LOVE her no matter what she is, my precious girl!!
Alfie is to standar his muzzle length would just be a fault but it's notNot quite. The breeder I got Alfie from said that although he is very good quality and of a high-standard, he is too long in the muzzle to fully meet the proper breed standard, which is why they decided against using him for breeding.
I'm actually very happy with this though, because I personally much prefer his length nose to the more snub-nosed Chi's.
Lol 5.5 is NOT oversize for a ring male, B at 4 # is by far the SMALLEST in the ring, some are 2x his size, and yes, I mean 8 lbs, or so, too! hehe...Zoey is adorable tho and no one would question if she's a chi or not.Zoey -- Nope, no way, no how, nu uh lol! She has roached back, fiddle front, wrong head, bad rear, and an overbite of about 1/8-1/4" But I love her just the same lol
Sebastian was pretty darn close, although was 'oversized (at 5.5#) for the ring for boys, and his personality wasn't there.
Wow, when we were going to show Sebastian they were all small like 4#, at least that's what was winning.....but he didn't have the personality for it, if someone touched him he would roll over & pee lmao.Lol 5.5 is NOT oversize for a ring male, B at 4 # is by far the SMALLEST in the ring, some are 2x his size, and yes, I mean 8 lbs, or so, too! hehe...Zoey is adorable tho and no one would question if she's a chi or not.
Hubby tells people Trigger is a mini rotty.
I suppose the reason I did this is because I got the impression some people didn't know what a chihuahua to standard looks like.. Someone made a comment can't remember exactly what it said about a dog being standard when it was miles off! I wonder if the problem is people are breeding their pets because they see the money and think oh never mind so we get allthese dogs that half don't even look like chihuahuas and because there is so many notHee heee.... Nope, but actually love the ways my girls look. I think everyones puppers are precious! When I bought my girls I wasn't looking for the standard, but more or less just the size and coloring.
