Chihuahuas usually weigh between 2 and 6 lbs. I wouldn’t recommend making it fat, its not good for the poor dog.

A Chihuahua is supposed to weigh about 4 to 6 lbs…
The safest way to make a dog fat is to feed them food that is high in protein which helps them build fat and muscle. The fastest unsafe way to make a dog fat is feeding it human food which has a lot of carbs.

Chihuahuas are not supposed to weigh over six pounds. There is another way to make sure your dog is at a healthy weight. You should be able to feel her ribs, but they should not be visible. There is also a weight chart that includes images to help identify underweight, ideal, and overweight dogs.
First, you should be feeding her a high-quality food. If she doesn't like the food you're feeding her, you could try switching to a different brand. Also, make sure she is on a feeding schedule. Put down her food at a certain time and if she doesn't finish it or walks away, take it back up. Then wait until the next time you feed her before you offer it again. A healthy dog won't starve itself.

If she is underweight, you may need to adjust the food portion. If she continues to lose weight, you may want to take her for a vet check-up. Inability to maintain a healthy weight or a change in appetite could indicate a health problem.

chihuahuas are typically between 2-6 pounds, as their a naturally small breed. they have a high metabolism so they should be fed at least 3 times a day.
adding alot of weight can be bad for the dogs health, especially if it happens too fast.

Chihuahuas are supposed to weigh between 4-6 pounds. I feed my chihuahuas 1/4 of a cup of dog food twice a day, they are at a healthy weight of 6-7 pounds.
