  • 58 - 63 days average. Do you have a vet? Everything I read says chihuahua's are high risk for pregnancy because of their size. Good luck! :)

  • Around 9 weeks... watch your dog carefully... if there are more than 3 puppies in there, she could have a really hard labor.

  • 8ish weeks! My Chihuahua had her 4 puppies in 8 weeks and 2 days. She had a hard labor. She had one breach and two stuck behind the breached. Those puppies came out over the breached one. I had to try and pull it out by the head without breaking the neck. It was hard. Luckly I got it in enough time or else I would have lost both puppy and mommy. The puppy (the only girl) came out just fine...thank God. Hope you get your puppies soon!Just watch your dog carefully. She'll need your help during her labor.
