Newbie What Am I???

We heard about this puppy through a shelter, when we picked her up she was 1lb/3 months old, going bald, told she was a Rat Terrier, has a natural bobbed tail, took her to the Vet he said she was a Chi, posted on another site told she was a Chi/Pap mix. That is why we named her Whatever. Sick puppy when we got her, threw up a feeding tube, idiots tried to force feed her, had a severe seizure second week we had her, had to be handfed, gave her pureed liver and some honey for low sugar. She is now 6 months old and weighs 2.5 lbs. except for the one spot on her leg her hair has grown back. No more seizures and eats great but does she even appear to be a Rat Terrier or a Chi? I really don't care what she is but we are curious. Thanks.

Looks like, Papillon / Chi X .
Welcome, and what a sweet looking puppy you have !!

My guess is that she's a longhaired Chi. She's adorable and I'm happy to hear she has made it thus far. Welcome to the board!

I agree with the Papillion/Chi cross suggestion. She has features that come from both breeds....either way, she's sure cute...though I do think another name might be more fitting for that cutie patoutie! :crazy:

What she is is adorable! Breed known or not. Whatever is the cutest little thing ever. Glad whatever found a good, loving home.

Well before I go and feed my outside critters, I want to thank all of you for your comments. Sure do appreciate it. When we were trying to figure out a name for her my DH and I kept going back and forth with names and he would say whatever and than I would say whatever so she ended up being Whatever. Since we really don't know whatever she is it seemed appropriate. I guess we just settle for weird names, I have a HalfPint, Lil Bit, Serenity, Snitzelfritz, Mischief, Squeekers, to name just a few. We live on a farm so we have outside and inside critters and even a few of the chickens have names.

OMG, she is so cute! My guess would be long-haired badly bred Chi or Chi/Pap. as well. I lean towards Chi because they are so much more common these days.

Thank YOU for all the effort you put into saving this teeny scrap. She's precious...hey, you could call her "Precious".:D
Or Teena....or Scrap! Or Pandora....or or or...

Welcome to this board, I am so glad you have saved this baby! Very cute by the way. I think I would have to say a long haired Ch. :D But, whatever he is he is 100% pure cuteness. :D

Your Whatever is absolutely adorable .... whatever breed she is!!!
Good for you for taking her in, caring for her and giving her a loving forever home :love: :grouphug:

Welcome. I agree with the others - Pap/Chi or long-haired Chi. I don't see any Rat Terrier at all. He is definitely the cutest thing though.

I would have to say that 'whatever' is definetely a Papillion (could be a mix). My mom had one that was quite a character, he played 'doggie baseball' - a game that he made up all on his own. Anyway, good luck with the little one and he's lucky to have found you! :thumbs up Welcome!
