This is Blossom, she is 2 weeks old. Only pup to my dogs, Alfie and Milli. Below are as many pictures that I could upload of her and the parents. :)

Some are older pictures than others of her, she is ONLY 2 weeks, so the "plumpy" ones or the ones with her eyes open are from today. (I think i lined them up youngest to oldest.)
Her hair has become "fluffier" and the hair on her booty, legs, neck, and chest has gotten a little longer than the rest.

Yup she's a smooth.

Longs have a line down the middle of their back at birth

This is going to sound extremely rude but it baffles me why on earth you would breed when chis are a difficult whelping breed and you can't tellthe difference between a smooth and a long puppy!!

You may want to look into singleton puppies and problems that can occur from singleton litters I would suggest you frequently knock her off whilst she is nursing or you could end up with a very dominant bitch who has a lot of issues same for weaning take her food away. Singletons need heavily socialising more so than dogs from larger litters.

Awe what a little beauty, mum and dad are very nice too, Id never heard of the stripe down the back but its a good one to remember, must say though ive had single pup litter and it was a bitch and i had now probs with her at all, we ended up keeping her and shes a really well ajusted pup who`s now 1 yr old, have you bred her to keep,,

I do plan on keeping this little one for my own. I can easily tell if a dog is smooth or long, but I've had so many different opinions on her IN REAL LIFE, because she does have a small line going down her spine.

I have been breeding my chihuahuas for 3 years, I have a ton of vet friends, I have more than enough breeding friends. My bitch's are free whelpers I would never put harm in their way. I am with them 24/7 their last weeks and I take very good care of them.

I was asking an honest question, and if you want to jump my case without knowing circumstances that's on you. I didn't come here to get reamed, I came her with the exact same love for the breed that you have.

I love my Baby Blossom, and she will be apart of my family. I was even thinking she may be a rough coat, seeing as their past puppies have all mostly been longhair/rough except 2. (there's been 9 puppies)

Thank you all for the replies, I will be posting more pictures asap! :)

They are all beautiful. Amberleah has a strip down her spine and she is a smooth coat, so are her parents. So not sure if you can say she is long or smooth by strip. Sorry for the reprimand on here I don't know why people have to be so critical.

Aw! PICTURES! Lolol, I loveeee seeing pictures of baby chi's and chi's. That's why I was asking on the internet, because I know she is young, and she has a lot of growing left, but I'm so darn impatient, and people keep telling me she's a rough or a long or a smooth, and even I'm baffled.

I guess we'll all see in coming weeks! :D I can't contain my excitement.

Her coat is also so hard to take a picture of, it reflects light and her pictures almost always come out blurry unless using my boyfriend's super expensive camera. LOL.

I wish you could all see her in real life, she has the cutest personality!

Attached is a LC blue baby of the same age...you can see a clear difference in how the coat lays.

FWIW, there is no such thing as a rough coat chi? There are smooth coats and long coats, some are double coated in each variety.

I find that Suprising considering the ages of your dogs.

Anyway she is a smooth coat!

As flippedstars said there is no such thing as a rough coat. Please don't use incorrect terms as there are people Coming on forums looking for info on the breed and saying that your pups are rough coats gives the wrong information and I for one want to educate people on our beautiful breed.

When I use the term rough coat it means exactly that, rough. The hair is longer on the ears, toes, and neck. Alfie, my longhair is a longhair, he has longhair everywhere.

If I use the incorrect term, that must mean all my vets and all my breeders here are wrong too I assume?

If you read the chi standard, "rough" coats are never mentioned. A CORRECT smooth coat is going to have what you describe as a "rough" coat is, but it is called a smooth coat. The smooths with the super weasily thin coats and thin tails have the wrong coat type and it is not a coat type that should be bred for. I would not expect a vet to know the correct terms associated with each breed, and its surprising anyone that breeds would know little enough to use the term in conjunction with chihuahuas. Like I said if you read the standard you won't find that word in there, so yeah, I guess they'd all be wrong, lol.
