Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Huge Chi

Hello! Please look at my pictures and tell me if I look Chihuahua to you. My mom was told I was a chi when she took me from my previous family (that mom had allergies). I'm really big, though. Mom says she's read that chi's can be pretty big, especially the deer and pear heads. She's considering a DNA test, but can't afford it right now. I weighed 10.5lbs last Thursday at 4.5 months.

    I would say yes, looks like a deer head IMO. Could be mixed but deer heads can get to upwards of 20#.

    Looks like a Chihuahua to me. My Chihuahua weighs 10.8lbs. His father is an Applehead at 2.5lbs, his mother a Deerhead at 3.5lbs, so my boy just reverted to type and that's fine. The breeder promised me he probably wouldn't get much bigger than his mother. Huh! So much for that! I'm rather glad he is the size he is and he lives with 2 rather large and boisterous Blue Heelers, but they are gentle with him and mother him.
