I would say 8 pounds plus yes if he is like 3.4 pounds at 12 weeks my Ozzy was 2 pounds at 12 weeks and he is 7 pounds now, they usually gain the majority of their size by 6 months but dont finish filling out until 1 year :wave:

8-9 pounds as adult weight is really not big. When you consider the AKC standard of maximum 6 lbs for a chi, it sounds big, but that standard is for show dogs.

Tia, my chi who went to the Bridge last year, at one time when she was still healthy weighed 10 lbs. and she still did not look big. She was muscular and stocky, but not fat.

My Jasmine is 9 mo. old now, weighs 5 lbs. and measures 9" around the neck. Just a guess, but I would say a 12-14 inch collar - will probably be a little big right now tho'. It is just difficult to predict, because they all grow differently.
