No. :wink: Most likely she will be at least a 4 to 5 lb. adult. Puppy weight and charting is wayyyyyyy off of adult weights. Under 4 lbs. as an adult is really very few and far between. I'm sure you guys see many Chi's at the Vet clinic. Count how many that you see as an adult that actually weigh under 4 lbs. :wink:
Heather that puppy is beautiful look how good her head is already at that age she looks like she has a good stop and muzzle oh wow I want her she is the prettiest puppy anyone ha posted on here in a long time!!
She looks similar to lotus did at that age with her head shape etc!!! She was really fat and at 12 weeks had slimmed right down!!
I can't get over that puppies head wow
Dad has lovely short legs have you got a picture of the dam??? I know zoey is only 4.5lb and short so as long as both parents are on the shorter side you shouldn't have any problems!!
Does the breeder know her lines well enough to give you an accurate weight?? I had an interesting chat with lotus' breeder on Sunday regarding weight!!
I think her & Zoey would compliment each other beautifully! Oh my what a cutie!! It looks like she's going to be a shorter/stockier pup. I'd guess her adult weight to be about 3.5-4lbs. Obviously her growth pattern could change but I doubt she'll be a big Chi at any rate.
I hope you put a deposit on her...I'd love to see this beauty grow!
Heather, I don't think you have to worry about her getting "big" either. She won't be 2.5 lbs., but def. not over 6 lbs. I would say similar to her Dad's size. 4 to 5 lbs. Don't hold me to that though. I have seen some start out small, and many of us guess an adult size, and then they really shoot on up there past the guesses. But I'd say you are pretty safe with this one staying within standard. And she is just too cute for words!!!!
