Watch as this 1 pound puppy takes on a 15-pound bag of dog food and wins, well, eventually. Ryder, the Chihuahua puppy, is here to give you this important message: If you believe in yourself and never give up, you can accomplish the impossible.
Never give up, never surrender.
Of course, Ryder never gives up on anything. He is also a Parvo survivor and spent over a week in critical care.
This is an excellent dog spirit in a tiny body. We believe in you, Ryder!
He’s so cute
Chihuahuas are known for their charming, sassy, and big personality in a tiny package. Named after the Mexican State of Chihuahua, the Chihuahua is considered one of the Americas’ most ancient dog breeds. Chihuahuas are among the most miniature dog breeds around, giving them the nickname “purse dog.” If you are the pet parent of a Chihuahua puppy, you may wonder how large my Chihuahua will get and when it will stop growing.
Everything you need to know about Chihuahua growth:
- Chihuahua Growth & Weight Chart
- At what age is a Chihuahua fully grown?
- How much bigger will my Chihuahua get?
- What is the size of a full-grown Chihuahua?
- How do I make sure my Chihuahua is healthy?
Pro Tip: Want to get reimbursed for up to 90% of your dog’s veterinary bills? Get Chihuahua pet insurance, and you’ll save on vet costs (and peace of mind).
Chihuahuas are unique because of their tiny stature. Unlike many dog breeds, the gender of the Chihuahua is less critical in determining their final size than their birth weight. If you are unaware of your Chihuahua’s birth weight, look at their current weight and age to see which column they fall into and their estimated adult size based on that.
