He is adorable!! Have you seen both parents? He does look a little on the big side:confused: Im sure others here can offer a more "professional" opinion on whether or not he looks full chi :) Congrats on the new addition!!

He's not 6 weeks yet and he's already about 6-7 pounds! He's definitely a mix, I'd say! A 6 week old chi is going to weigh about a pound or so. Look how big he is next to the lady holding him! Most 6 week old Chi's can just about fit in your hand. Have you seen the parents? This is going to be BIG BOY! :)

Edit: here's a pic of Brody and my husband holding him. He's right at 5 pounds. As you can tell from the pics you posted, that 6 week old puppy is already his size and probably bigger. (He looks really pudgy and wide across the chest).

Do you prefer people names or traditional pet names?

He is precious-and big! My baby weighed 1 lb. 7 oz. at 9 weeks when we got her and took her to our vet for puppy check up. She is 11.5 weeks now and not much bigger.

My boy was 5.5 pounds at adult.

Congratulations and here's to cuddling!!

eta: Just saw Brody's photo and he is BEAUTIFUL (in a tough, guy kind of way, of course)! Is he considered black and tan?

He is very cute, but definitely not a purebred. His head almost looks like cockerish. I would say your guy is going to be at least 15-20# if not more.

I agree with the others before, in that he is most likely a mix, definitely going to be over 10lbs. Just not to standard, but boy is he a cute puppy! :)


Also, in the second picture the OP has in her post, it appears to be a child holding the puppy, which would account for SOME size differences there. :) (The hand looks a little "chubbers" and the jeans definitely have some glittery decal on the leg... NOT saying women over the age of 25 cannot wear jeans with glittery decals ;))

He's massive for a 6. Week old pup if you look at him compared to the persons hands a 6 week old will fit in that hand!!

Edit: just read darcies comment should fit in both hands of a 8-10 year old child lol darcie any one over the age of 12 shouldn't wear jeans like those lol

He may have a little chi in him may not have any. Have you seen the parents??? Didn't see where you put it's weight but if this dog is 6lb at 6 weeks I'd place money it has like 1/100 of a chi In it :)

Sweet pup tho

I have to agree that I don't see much chi at all either. I mean...my 2 that are under 4 lbs as adults are much smaller than that puppy is at 6 weeks.

Did they tell you he was purebred? You can get a nice, purebred pup for around $500-$600.

AWWWW NANA!

This is Bryco @ 11 weeks/1 lb.


Just so you can see how small that really is :) Your little fella looks quite a bit bigger.

Anyway, as long as you know he will be in the 15+ lb range as an adult most likely and are OK with that, he's cute!

Awww he is a cutie!!
He is a bit bigger yeah, but if you love him and are not bothered by sizes, that is what matters.
I love his colouring and sweet wee face!
My mind has gone blank for a name right now, but am sure something fitting will come to you. xx

I don't know what breed he is but he is so sweet. He looks like a stuffy-toy from Build a Bear.

Oh well hun, we all live and learn and the best part is you are in love with him and he will be a lovely addition to your family. Maybe he is just a very fat puppy?

Rocco's a good name for him I think!
