3. Puppy Ears Flop is NORMAL to 6 months
The teacup below grew to 3.8 lbs 7 inches length and the Micro 2 1/2 lbs 6  inches length. Usually the smallest puppy IS the smallest adult. If size is important to you then, buying the smaller puppy would be more logical  to lower your risk. Short cobby appleheads weigh a bit more then skinny Taco Bell types. If you like the tall skinny long leg Chihuahuas the weight is lower, but the body in inches is usually larger then the applehead cobby Chihuahua

We promote awareness of toxic chemicals, found in many rubber and plastic dog toys. These chemicals are known to cause endocrines disorders, cancer, allergies, intestinal illness, autoimmune  and degenerative diseases. If it can't go into a human babies mouth then our Chihuahuas do not chew on it! Having mild OCD has it benefits when raising dogs. We buy our dogs organic cotton toys. Any rubber toys we ensure are BPA free. We use real lambs wool from "Holy Lambs Organics" and natural rubber foam pads placed inside of zipper cotton cushions for our dog beds. Non toxic alternatives for our pets are becoming easier to find.

I do not see low blood sugar in my adults. If an adult has episodes of low blood sugar then there is an undelying health issue. I feel hypoglyememia is not "normal", In youngr pups the following may cause hypoglycemia:

Stress - Stress is a major problem because a stressful puppy may
choose not to eat. This is usually brought on when a puppy enters a new home or new environment of some kind for the first time. The unfamiliarity can make them anxious, or nervous, and so they get the urge not to eat, leading to low blood sugar.

Illness - My Chihuahua puppies for sale, and even the adults, are healthy and strong. While that's mostly due to the high standards I have for the care of my dogs, not all dog breeders share these same quality standards. As a result poor living conditions and maintained mother dogs, such irresponsible breeders often produce sickly puppies that are more prone to receiving hypoglycemia.

Sickness can also sometimes result even in healthy dogs, and may effect them intestinally. This will cause the puppy or dog to lose their appetite, preventing them from eating, which of course, leads to hypoglycemia.

Hypothermia - A puppy can become hypothermic if their body temperature is lowered from shock or chilling. This has potential to happen during winter time, where the temperature inside your home can become dangerously low for a puppy without a heating pad. A cold puppy will start to shiver in an attempt to get warm, rapidly burning through calories. In time, the body temperature will lower, sugar levels drop, and hypoglycemia sets in. So keep your puppy warm!

5. Do not ever view low blood sugar in adults as "normal".
Going off feeds is the first sign of trouble. Head right away to the Vet for a fecal check. EXAMINE THAT POOP! If you have solid hard poops and puppy is eating and playing then you are fine. If you see loose stools and puppy is playing then time for a Vet trip and a check of the feces. It is vital to check your puppies stool at the first sign of illness. Worms Parasites and food poisoning bacteria can show up in a stool exam and pave the way for prompt and effective treatment of your puppy.
6.What is the first sign of illness  in a puppy?
Warning: Do not use canned dog or puppy foods to feed your puppy. It's extremely dangerous for tiny puppies. Canned food means any and all soft dogs foods, in the plastic containers and foil pouches. Although bacteria are killed during the canning process, the "toxic poop" made by the bacteria remain.Canned dog and puppy food contain endotoxins from bacteria. High heat is used in the canning process to kill bacteria, but this does not destroy  endotoxins ( the poop of bacteria).

7.Why Canned Food Is  Dangerous!
The parvo vaccine works by the vaccine lodging in the intestines and stimulating protection   in the intestinal lining. If the intestinal lining is inflamed with sores from worms, or parasites, the Parvo vaccine and immune system are unable to work together, with tragic results. A modified live Parvo vaccine may induce a parvo like illness. Informed Vets now call this " Vaccine induced Parvo".

Never Give A Parvo Vaccine To A Puppy With Diarrhea
Young puppies have immature immune systems and their immune system can become disrupted when hit with several disease at the same time. (vaccines simulate disease as I mentioned earlier ) How often in nature would any animal get hit with more then one disease at the same time? Never. Studies have shown that multiple vaccines given at the same time in puppies under 10 weeks confuse the immune system so that it is unable to produce proper titer levels of protection. Vaccines simulate disease when put into the body. The immune system must respond in a specific way  against the disease the vaccine simulated, in order to produce antibodies. According to Dr. Pitcairn, vaccines intended to protect pets against acute natural diseases actually create chronic conditions with features of the disease the vaccine was supposed to prevent. Vaccines contain a number of toxic substances, including viruses, mutated bacteria, immune irritants, foreign proteins, and preservatives.

Symptoms of Vaccinosis

Common vaccine reactions include:
Lethargy  Stiffness 
Hair loss  Lack of appetite 
Hair color change at injection site  Conjunctivitis 
Fever  Sneezing 
Soreness  Oral ulcers 

More serious reactions:
Immunosuppression  Granulomas and abscesses 
Behavioral changes  Hives 
Vitiligo  Facial swelling 
Weight loss  Allergic hypersensitivity 
Reduced milk production (females)  Respiratory disease 
Lameness  Allergic uveitis 

Very severe illness:
Injection-site sarcomas (cancer)  Glomerulonephritis 
Anaphylaxis  Myocarditis 
Autoimmune arthritis  Encephalitis or polyneuritis 
Polyarthritis  Seizures 
Hypertrophic osteodystrophy  Abortion 
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia  Congenital abnormalities 
Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia  Embryotic (fetal) death 
Thyroiditis  Infertility 

Vaccinosis may lead to health decline, even death.

I receive many emails every year from families who wished they had seen my warnings first. Their adult dogs died following a rabies vaccine that their Vet had  given right along with the yearly booster vaccines. I have lectured on my site for years to never  permit a Vet to throw in the rabies shot along with the booster. Rabies should be given by itself and not with any other vaccines. My theory is that Distemper is a neuro disease and so is rabies and the combination of them together can produce paralysis and death in susceptible dogs. There is also the possiblity that the additives in with the rabies can be dangerous. Rabies is a killed vaccine so the body doesn't pay attention to injection, which is why  irritating chemicals added to the vaccine , causing the body to be alarmed and take note.
Rabies vaccine. Use with caution. Give by itself
It is normal for puppy ears to flop  and will attain upright position as they get older. Iv given one photo example here for you. Baby ears can go up and down
