Hey guys,

Do you think this puppy is a long haired or short haired chihuahua?

I couldn't tell for sure, it is 9 weeks old.

Thanks!

It's fluffy, so it's a long coat. A short coat is much tighter. If s/he is AKC registerable, the breeder should have marked the registration slip with coat type and color.

She's (he?) unbelievably cute. And yes, long haired. The shorthair Chi puppies I've seen were all very slick at that age.

Chihuahua's head shapes vary a lot too, but most fall into the two mains groups of apple heads and deer heads. Large, erect ears sit above round, protruding eyes that give the breed a bright and curious look. You can find both long-haired and short-haired Chihuahuas with specific breed appearance standards for each. The Chihuahua has a swift, firm gait that helps him show off his proud appearance. In their eyes, Chihuahuas are the most important people in the room.
