How Big?

Recommended Posts

Our BC pup is 4 months + right now and all that dog food is going to make a tall lanky pup. Last weigh in and she is at 26 lbs, perhaps a bit more by now. So from this stage, how much larger will she get? BTW she is loving the snow, but we do not leave her out for long.

There have been several other threads that cover the question you have asked. A lot of responses there for your information.

 

I am not sure I am remembering it correctly so take this with a grain of salt, but one general estimation is to take the weight at 4 months and double it for adult size.

 

Also, what size were her parents? Do you know?

Well I did a Search and no results. Of course a lot of Features do not work with IE or Firefox on this board. I am online a lot so its not just me!

 

Her dad was a working BC on a ranch/farm so I am assuming he was pretty good sized.

Well I am using IE11 and trust me I am online perhaps 5 hours a day. Zero problems with Searches, Copy and Paste Quoting and all the modern features on the other 5 or 6 Forums I am on daily.

 

Thanks for posting the results of your Search. Looks like Gina will be about a 50 lb dog. She is learning so much and teaching us even more!!

I use Firefox and have no problems searching on these Boards.

 

In answer to your question, you won't know till she's fully grown. Yes, there's the thing about doubling weight at 4 months old. I've seen too many times it was off to trust it. There's also a website where you can choose various parameters (breed, age, current weight) and it projects an anticipated adult weight. It was so far off for the people I know who used it (myself included) that I'm not going to bother to try to find it again to link it here. Besides, with a mixed breed it would skew it anyway.

 

Seriously, just go with the flow and enjoy your puppy time as it unfolds. It won't last forever. :)

So quoting works fine from my Apple iPhone. Thanks for the reply.
