I have a one yr. old male, neutered who weighs 9.5 lbs.  He has gotten heavy since I had him neutered and is a real chow hound.  Likes food.  He is heavier than my other chi's.  I have 5 total.   It's like Lays potato chips.  You can't have just one.  I have to admit I am concerned about Gizmo's weight.  I have stopped feeding table scraps altogether.  I don't think I was helping matters any by sharing with him.

Never buy from a pet store. You paid $800 for what sounds like a mixed breed.
