Determining the Age of a Chihuahua - tan deer head Chihuahua

Determining the Age of a ChihuahuaWhen I got this dog, I was told it was only 2 years old, but that doesn't seem to be the case. She is lazy and loves to sleep. She is very protective of the other dog we have, which makes me think she's had puppies at some point in her life. She enjoys walks, but doesn't walk as much as she use to.
