How big will my chihuahua puppy get?

We rescued this chihuahua puppy- at 8 weeks she was 1 1/2LBS
and at 9 weeks she was 2Lbs. The vets say she will be small, stay small, but i was just curious on how BIG she might get. I know it depends on the mother and father also, but we have no information on them. THANKS for your help!

Here is a chihuahua growth chart I have found it to be very accurate Hope this helps

The Chihuahua Weight Chart is great to use as a guideline to estimate a mature weight within a quarter of a pound or so. This table is used only as a guide, as many things can affect the mature weight of a puppy. Weight may vary depending on its bloodline, genetics, how well the animal is fed, etc. Weight estimates before the age of 8 weeks old are often inaccurate because the puppy is still nursing or being weaned and may be heavier due to fat from the mother's rich milk. This weight chart only works with purebred Chihuahuas. The weight chart is from a book called "The Complete Chihuahua Encyclopedia" by Hilary Harmar, Pub. 1972, Arco Publishing Co., Inc.

    Hey kit Kat you need to stop answering questions because you have no idea what your talking about. Ah if your vet is giving you Purina puppy packs. YOUR VET IS SPONSORED BY THEM. Which means they give him money to support there product. Read the ingredients. Corn is for horses and cows not for dogs.
