How much does an average male chihuahua weigh?

I brought my male chihuahua to the vet on march 17th (08) to get neutered and his shots, and at the time he weighed 4.5 lbs (4 and a half pounds). He is about 4 months old now. I was wondering how much bigger he will get on average? I know they don't get big at all, lol. Just curious! :o) Thanks!

2-6 pounds (1-3kg)

Disqualification – Any dog over 6 pounds in weight.

    Not much bigger than he is right now. I have a friend who has a male chihuahua, and she told me that she had to work to get him to weigh in at 5 pounds so the vet would go ahead and neuter him.
