Chihuahua dogs are one of the smallest dogs in the world. The tiny pup will grow in a lively small dog. Looking at the size of your favorite pet, one often wonders how big will my chihuahua puppy grow? One is tempted to estimate the future weight of their puppy that will grow up to just about 6 to 10 inches, for both males and females.
When you go through the weight chart below, you will find it gives just estimates about how much should your pup weigh at what age. The chart contains weight measured in ounces. Keep in mind, this chart is just an estimation. Your puppy's growth depends on the size of the parents, activity level, nutrition provided and if the dog has inherited certain genes. If you know you puppy's weight in pounds, you can refer to the following formula. This will help you convert pounds into ounces and measure your puppy's weight according to the following chihuahua puppy growth rate chart.
Number of solid pounds x 16 + number of % of pounds
In order to understand the above formula, let me explain with the help of the following example:
If the weight of the dog is about 2.2 pounds, you will calculate his weight in ounces as follows:
2 (number of solid pounds) x 16 + 2 (number from the .2 present in the pups weight) = 24 ounces.
