I have a 10 week old female Shiba Inu Terrier (I think parson but not sure) Chihuahua puppy. She already seems to be quite large, but does not have large paws. Our scale that be incorrect said she was 6.2lbs. Her mom is 25lbs and her dad is 6lbs, neither were very large dogs. Mom's breed (Shiba Inu) is 15.5 inches max for height. So I would assume she will be somewhere in the middle of the parents, no?

She is already mostly house trained, and can hold her bladder for 6 hours. She also is chewing EVERYTHING. She only has excited pees in the house when I come home. She also already listens to the come command and shes beginning to get her name.

I am worried she will get too big, because we are only supposed to have small dogs where we live.

Anybody else have puppy that seemed to grow super fast and then did they taper off?

Mixed breed dogs do not necessarily end up middle sized to their parents. The puppy could grow to be the same size as either parent.
