Not that it matters, but I have been thinking about what made my Chi so expensive. The lady that I got him from said she paid $500 for him at a pet shop. When I think of a high priced pup, I see a much smaller chi with a short nose and with perfect markings. My nachos is almost 8 pounds with a longer nose and he is tall. I asked for his papers so I could research his blood line for fun but she didnt have any papers. When you pay that much you expect show quality right? Giving her the benefit of the doubt I thought maybe she had be had by the pet shop.. any thoughts?
