  1. Hi Everyone! First post, new member here. I have been stalking this site since I first met Lexie (my new BC mix puppy) and I have learned so much! A little bit about how I got here. My pup passed away 6 months ago from kidney failure, it was by far the hardest time of my life. Its still not easy but time will help. I volunteer at my local animal shelter and decided to become a foster after Benjie passed away (Pomeranian). It helped to fill the void of his absence. About 2 months ago we had a litter of 8 Border Collie mix puppies transferred in and they needed fosters for 10 days. I jumped up for the challenge, I was the lucky one that got the dog with poop all over lol. The first 3 nights were so hard and I couldn't wait to take her back but then something happened. She stole my heart with her silly ways and brains. She adapted by the 5th day and things started to turn around, she listened and followed command. I told myself, I can definitely do this. Not to mention how much this site helped me make the decision as well. I got a lot of great reading here that inspired me. I always had small dogs so a big dog is new to me but I have been wanting a larger dog. Anyway, I caved and adopted her, meet Lexie! She is now 14 weeks weighing 16 pounds. Some of the questions I have are about her breed. I know her mom is a BC but no idea about her dad. Everyone usually thinks german shepherd but what do you guys think? I ordered a DNA test so hopefully, soon we will know more! So excited! Which brings me to my next question, her weight. Does anyone have any expertise in estimating adult dog weight? Attached are some pics, please I'm interested to read what breed you guys think she is mixed with or how big you think she will get
  2. Ever since I found these forums I wondered if my border collie is fat. There are posts of female border collies averaging 30-35lbs, mine is 52 at 2yrs of age. She has daily walks, runs and frisbee/ball playing in the yard. She eats 2 2cups of dry food, one morning and one evening. When patting her down she feels dense, not fat like you expect a person to be . Her fur is thick and fluffy, especially her rear, so it makes it hard to eye but the pounds don't lie as she seems a little on the heavy side. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
