Looks Chihuahua-ish to me.

Thanks. I know nothing about dogs- this dog is young but will it grow much larger?

Chihuahuas are very small dogs - 2 to 6 lbs..

Chi's average out at about 6-9 inches tall (at shoulder) and weigh between 2-6 pounds, so I'm guessing not. Unless it's mixed with something, then it's anyone's guess.

A note though: They are not very good with children and can be quite snappy if not properly socialized.

Wow, cool. Thanks for all the information, guys!

I will keep in mind the children comment. Although, that's 20 years from now

It looks like a mix to me, a chihuahua/beagle mix. If it's pure then it's a chihuahua

Actually, there could be a Chihuahua with some Terrier mixed in that little pup. Those are awfully sturdy legs for a pure Chi.

If there is terrier in him, what type? I'm pretty sure it's a beagle that's in him, but I'm usually wrong with this stuff, lol

One of the main reasons chihuahuas and kids do not mix is that because of their small size, a chi could be easily killed by a small child.
