Josie is 12 weeks old, and weighed 1.5 lbs when I took her to the vet last week. My breeder told me when I picked her up that she estimates her to be anywhere from 3-4 lbs, which I didn't know until I picked her up (I'll love her no matter how much she ends up weighing!).

So anyway, I was wondering about how many more months of growing and weight gain that Josie has ahead of her before she'll reach her full adult weight. I'm just trying to estimate her size, I suppose. Thanks in advance for any help. :wave:

Josie

If she stays consistent with the chart she should be 3 to 3 1/2 lbs. Some people have chis that stop growing at 6 months and some chis keep growing up to a year. I think it is depending on the chi. My vet told me that the skeletal fram should be complete between 6 to 8 months.

Sincy went to the vet last week and weighs 4.03 lbs @ 4 months old. I don't know how to use that weight chart, so I don't know how much she will weigh. Her mom and dad weighed less than 4.5 so I would assume around there. :wave:

According to the chart, the breeder's estimate of 3-4 pounds looks pretty close. But bear in mind, these are estimates and don't always hold true. According to the weight chart, Jazzy's full adult weight would be around 4-1/2 lbs., but she is now almost 6 lbs at 11 mo. old. I think she is probably at her adult size now, but she did go over what the chart showed and she is by no means too heavy for her size and frame.

Our Chi is almost 3.5 Lbs. at 4 months. She doesn't look like she's growing all that much but I can really see her starting to bulk up with muscles on her chest and hind quarters.
I really want her to be 5-6 lbs but I just don't see her getting there.

adult weight is usually acheived between 12 and 18 months old. some are sooner some are later, but sounds like the estimate is right.

the little guy im gonna get is 13oz at 6 weeks placing him at between 3-3 1/2 lbs...so well see, the chart was pretty much on with vixie...
