We took Gunner for a well pup visit at 11 (minus one day) weeks when we first got him. He was 2.6 lbs then. We took him again today (16 weeks yesterday) and he's up to a whopping 3.1 lbs! Both of his parents were in the 7 lb range. Wanna take a stab at his adult weight? I know there is NO way to know for sure. This is just more for fun. My guess is that he'll top off at 6ish lbs.

Well, the chihuahua weight chart seems to have not been accurate for many. Guess I may be an exception. It has been very accurate for my oldest 2. That said, they are just 1 year old so they may not be finished growing. They have tracked 3.5-3.75 pounds from weeks old. They are currently 3.6 and 3.7 pounds. Our youngest came to us at 8 months so I have no idea how she would have charted.

3.1 pounds converted to ounces show him between 5 and 5.5 pounds on that chart.

Chihuahua Growth Chart

Bijoux is the same and charting exactly as the chart predicted
Whoa. That chart is confusing. Glad someone already done the math for me.
I'd be tickled with 5-6 lbs. I didn't want a horse, but I didn't want a "teacup" neither. (I know. No one stone me for using the teacup word.;))

Well, because I am a nerd and because I want my own information to compare, I recently dropped all 3 girl's weights into excel spreadsheets. I have date, age and weight for each.

I found it interesting that my two oldest girls have not budged on weight since they were 9 months and 10 months. Only time will tell if they continue to grow or if this is it.

5-6 lbs is perfect I have 2 that are 8 lbs ATM and its just as good I didn't realize how tiny 3 lbs really is for an adult downside is nothing at all fits can't find collars clothes coats he freezes prada can't rough house him etc.

It will definitely be interesting I wish I did that I can't remember his 8 week weight I think it was 1.2-1.4 lbs I'd have to ask the vet when he goes again.

Are yours really thin? I can't remember beau is skin and bones on stilts lol

DEER all the way. When he's looking at me from across the yard he looks just like a gray deer. He even flicks his ears like a deer.
