Why is my chihuahua so small and skinny?

Don't say because its a chihuahua .My dog's brother is bigger than my 3 year old dog and the dog is still small she is still small enough that you can step on her by accident.She is also really skinny i can put my pointer finger and thumb together without touching her waist . She eats more than my older dog but she is still skinny . Is this bad?

Hey,
I have a Japanese Chin who is a full bread and doesn't look like normal Japanese Chin's he is bigger, and a different color then most. Just like when parents have kids they don't all come out the same. Neither did the dog with it's parents:)

Maybe you aren't feeding it right or its unhappy. If you are following what your brother says to do IDK. But if not, ask him for tips

no worries. they are naturally small and skinny. also pending on their breed and mixes. I too have a Chihuahua that is so skinny I tried feeding him fattening both human and dog food. yes he gets heavy but still skinny. what you worry about is fatigueness, not being active or losing fur. etc...
