How long does it take for a long-haired chihuahua'a hair to fully come in? My little chi is 6 months old and has lost all her puppy hair she is now very sleek and soft and has some long hair on her neck and starting on her ears and tail. I was wondering how long until she looks like the long haired chi's you see in all the pictures. I'm just excited because she is going to be so beautiful when it's all in. She is beautiful now, don't get me wrong, just can't wait.
While your dog will be getting its adult coat in, most dogs do not completely fill out and get their final look until they are 3 years old. Can you post pics of your Chihuahua?? I would love to see her!!
I will try to put pictures up. I am new to this, so I'm not quite sure how to do it. In the meantime I will describe her to you. She is all black with white on her chest and white feet, with very subtle black spots on the white parts on her feet. She also has what looks like highlights of brown around her ears and neck. I will try very hard to post a picture. She also weighs a little undr 2 lbs., about how big do you think she will be when full grown. I was thinking about 3 lbs.? I would love to see pictures of your babies also. Thank you
It can take up to 2-3 yrs for them to finish maturing and get their adult coat. But I would talk to the breeder about this since every line is different. Some lines mature fast, others slow and the breeder should know this and be able to tell you a better average. Size, again is hard to tell without knowing the lines, but I will guess around the 4 pound area, shouldnt go more than 5 I wouldnt think.
