Default Chihuahua Pictures - These work! - Durden "Dirt"

My last post link didn't come up right. Here are some pics of "dirt".

He's about 7 months old now, and weighs in at 2 lbs 11 ozs. I do have
1 question, about what age do chihuahuas stop growing?

He's totally adorable! Our two weighed 2.5 and 3.5 lbs when we got them
at 12 weeks, so they are considerably larger than Dirt - they topped out
at around 9 lbs, which is about right for Chile, a bit heavy for Gordo.
They're 13 and still going strong.

I don't remember exactly when they stopped growing, but it was well past
7 months. IIRC, they got their adult skeletal size by around 1-1.5
year, and had filled out by around 2. Dirt's parents' size would be a
clue to how large he will get. How large are they? Gordo and Chile's
weighed 6 and 7 lb.

I'm not sure as to his parents exact weight, but from looking at them
(the pics are on that site) the dad is tiny, maybe 4lbs tops. The mom
is a little heavier. I want to say maybe 7-8lbs. Take a look and let
me know if that looks right. The picture with his mother in it has
him looking away as the mother is sniffing him (apparently he didn't
realize that was his mother - he was scared to death). In that pic,
he weighed 2lbs 10ozs (I took him to the vet about 2 weeks later to
get a toe nail checked out and they weighed him).

Dirt has a sister that is smaller than he is, and she's probably about
2 years old. His dad is super tiny as well, not much bigger than dirt
himself. Dirt was the runt of the litter, and his mother actually
rejected him at first. The breeders had to feed him themselves for
about 2 days before the mother would accept him again. Because of
this, I think he may stay pretty small. What do you think?

Could be - I don't have any experience with Chi's this tiny. But I'd
guess you're right about him staying pretty small.

I wonder - what other breeds have sizes that vary in size (excluding
over and underweight) as much as Chihuahuas do? I mean, there are
teacups with adult weights around a pound, and giants like my
9-pounders, and I've seen purebreds weighing even more that that.
