Hello everyone,

I can help you by understanding the Chihuahua's weight chart. It's really easy. Any questions about Chihuahua's weight chart. I will try my best to help you. Just tell me your puppy's age and the current weight. I can give you the best estimated size at full grown only if you want to know. Posts? ;)

I thought I was looking at just a smiley there till I realised your text is all in white! lol.

I don't know what Lexi's birth weight was, but she's 16 weeks now, and weighs 2.2lbs (1kg).
I looked at the chart, it said she'd be around 4lbs fully grown?
She's still so small :?

Lexi is very beautiful! Basically, she weighted 2.2 lbs at 16 weeks old right? Ok the chihuahua's weight chart shows me that she will be 3 1/2 to 4 lbs. I have a feeling that Lexi will be under 4 lbs with no doubts :)

Same with my Tinkerbell. She is a year old and she weighted 3 lbs & 3oz. Also, with my little Curious George. He weighted 3 lbs & 12oz. Just few ounces more than my Tinkerbell :)

Well, the weight chart is good for a general idea.
According to the weight chart both my girls were suppose to be between 4.5 to 5 lbs.
Sandy was a year old in February and now weights over 6 lbs.
Koke was a year old in June and weights 5.5 lbs.
In all honesty, Sandy is a little over weight, but Koke is no where near over weight.

My point is that the charts are not set in stone, they are only to be used as a general idea.

Don't ever expect your chi to be exactly what the chart says.

If Lexi ends up a 20lb Chi i'd still love her :lol:
Very unlikely though thank goodness, I couldnt imagine a 20lb Chi....

:)
Yup, you are absolutly right.

I'd still love mine just as much if they were 20 lbs. also.

But unfortunatly there are a lot of people that buy chis that the breeder has told them that their chi will only weigh 3 1/2 to 4 lbs. according to the weight chart, and that pup ends up weighing several pounds more and then don't want the pup anymore.
It's just sad that the poor pups didn't do anything wrong, they just grew.
Breeders should tell prospective customers the truth about the chart.

Hello ! Tyson is 15 weeks (nearly 16 weeks) and weighs 4lbs , can you work out approx what adult weight should be?? :D :D

Thank-u :wave:
Tyson's estimated size when he reaches to 6 months old or older as a full grown is 8 to 10 lbs. Wow he's pretty big but he is definitely adorable little guy!

Tansy totally defied that chart; she was 3.5 oz at birth, and followed the chart until about 6 weeks, and now at 17 weeks, is just under 6 pounds- twice what her full grown size should have been. IMHO the chart is not at all reliable. Not that I personally care; I've found I much prefer having a larger chi that is sturdy and healthier than a tiny chi might be.

Cooper said "weight chart, schmeight chart". For a dog that should have been 4-5 lbs per the chart, he totally negated any validity the chart had - at least in his case. I love my 10 lb Cooper!!

He wasn't going to adhere to what society said he should weigh. He's a rebel at heart.

wow one and a half ounces is tiny, Im sure it starts at 2 and a half ounces and says that a 2 and a half ounce pup will mature to around 2lbs ACCORDING to the chart :?. So 1 and a half ounces would work out tiny and doesnt come under the chart :shock:

I was just testing the weight chart, infact she was born at that weight but she now weighs in at 3 1/2lbs and is nearly 5 years old, shes Fynn the white/beige one in the middle of my avatar.Rosie the sable weighs the same but is slightly smaller.

sometimes the chart and the estimating is right on but other times it is so far off. chiwi has been right on so far and i can't wait to see how much Jumba weighs so i can see what the chart says with him.
