Hmm, well he definitely looks like a chihuahua, but maybe he has some mix to him. He could be a standard chihuahua, they look kind of different than the smaller ones, at least the one's I've seen. He's still a puppy so maybe his ears will stand up straight soon. He sure is cute though!!
He is very cute! Like the previous poster said, I think he is most likely a Chihuahua/Terrier cross. Could he be a Manchester Chihuahua? I don't even know if that's a breed, but my grandma had a "Manchester Chihuahua" that lived for 19 years!
I see you got your pictures on here :) Personally he seems to have quite big feet for a chihuahua. He looks like he "could" be a mix. The general rule of thumb for most toy breeds is to take their weight at 12 weeks and double it, plus or minus a pound or so. That would bring him around 11 maybe 12 lbs. Toy breeds are classified as being under 10 lbs. My Maltese x Poodle weighed 6.8 lbs at 12 weeks and is now 7 months and weighs 14 lbs, I suspect she will get up to maybe 17-18 lbs. He may on the other hand just be a larger than standard chihuahua. I have seen several chihuahua's with floppy ears as well. He's still young so his ears might still stand up. Either way he certainly is a cutie!!
Hi, he does look like a chihuahua how much did he cost you if u dont mind me asking?, one of my chihuahuas ears didnt up til 4 months....and his adult weigh according to the chihuahua weight chart...is 7-8 lbs
He is adorable but I have to say that I can see some Jack russell terrier in him. I only say that because of his paws and legs and the shape of his face and ears. The eyes and coloring are more chi though.
He sure is adorable! His feet look like they are a bit large for a Chihuahua. His face though does remind me of a Chihuahua. I would guess he is a Chi mix. As for his ears, they'll go up in due time. It takes a different amount of time for each dog as each dog is different. With dogs that hav erect ears like Chihuahuas, usually by 5 or 6 months they are up for good. One will go up, the other will be down. Then they'll both go up...fall down... Then one day they will stay up for good! It looks like they are starting ti stand up, as you can see the crease where they aren't completely "floppy" anymore.
I just wanted to add that there is no real standard or manchester or teacup sizes for chihuahua's. They come in one size the other names are taged on by bad breeders that want to make their pups look more appeling, so they can charge more money. By breeding ynder or over sized and out of standard dogs then calling the different names. Look at the AKC or Chihuahua Club of America to see the real standard for the chihuahua.
