How big will he get?

Recommended Posts

Splash is 19 weeks old! My baby is not so little anymore.. its actually crazy looking back at 'old' photos of him when he was brand new!

My question is, how big will he get? Obviously I can't know for sure, but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with / good at guessing size.

8 weeks: 5 pounds

10 weeks: 8 pounds

15 weeks: 18 pounds (huge jump!)

19 weeks: 24.4 pounds

He's quite a leggy boy, I'm going to attach some pictures. I also plan on getting him neutered when he's about a year, so hopefully it supports his growth. I know males average 31-44 lbs (wikipedia) but so many dogs carry it so differently - does anyone have any predictions for Splash?

Our pup is just over 6 months old, he us all legs snd skinny at the moment. He was 22lb at 16 weeks, he also has large paws which people say he is going to be on the larger side. We are also not going to neuter at the moment, just watching how he develops.

He is so cute!

Did you see his parents? They might give you a little bit of an idea how big he will get, but sometimes they take after grandparents, greats, etc. so it's no guarantee. 

If it helps any my seven month old female is 27 pounds. She was 17 pounds at four months and had that same long legged look about her. She has only gained two pounds the last month and she is definitely slowing down. Her parents were in the 30-35 pound range so she will probably not get much bigger. But it really is so hard to say with any certainty.

My boy Jack ( BC cross Beardie) is now 6 months old and weighs in at 17k, about 37lbs.  All legs like Bambi and slim with a waist I could die for.  Vet reckons he'll be about 24k when fully grown.

We were thinking of getting Ben neutered at 2. Is there any benefit to waiting a bit longer or is it best to get it done at 1?

Icarra, there have been past threads that have addressed this, with some links to studies both about best age and risks of spay/neuter. You might want to do a search.
