It is very important to keep your Chihuahua at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your dog in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Chihuahua weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 2.3kg to 3.3kg and for a male from 2.8Kg to 3.7kg. That is, 5.1lbs to 7.3lbs for females and 6.2lbs to 8.2lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Chihuahua weight is such that approximately 40% of the male dogs have a weight between 3kg and 4kg (between 6.6lbs and 8.8lbs) and 35% of the female dogs have a weight between 2kg and 3kg (between 4.4lbs and 6.6lbs).
