As already mentioned, it is not very easy to accurately describe what chipits look like. This is because the parents themselves look nothing alike. In order to understand what you are in for and estimate the appearance, you have to first know what the parents look like.
Chihuahuas are tiny doggies and are actually considered the smallest standard dog breed. They weigh between 4 to 6 pounds and measure 6 to 10 inches in height. Believe it or not, they can actually be smaller than this with the likes of teacup and miniature chihuahuas. However, when it comes to chipit breeding it is the standard-sized doggies that are used.
Pitbulls on the other hand refers to a group of dog breeds and not one specific breed. These include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Bulldog, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. They measure 16 to 20 inches in height and are therefore considered medium to large build breeds. When it comes to the weight, they are muscular and heavy with an average weight of 40 to 80 pounds at maturity.
There is clearly a huge difference in terms of weight from 6 to 80 pounds and this variety is evident in the chipits. Genetics play the biggest role in determining just how big a chihuahua pitbull will grow. More often than not, they end up in the medium dog size measuring an average of 20 inches in height and 20 pounds or more in weight.
When it comes to the actual build, they tend to be stocky and masculine like their pitbull parents. They also often take after the pitty’s dome-shaped head but may occasionally take after the chihuahua parent with the apple head shape.
Finally, when it comes to the coat, they more often than not have the short and smooth coat from the pitbull side in brown, black, tan or golden. They may also have long hair like long haired chihuahuas but these are very rare.
