    Bailey is nearly 7 months and only weighs 3.3kg!!! she has been pretty unwell and the vets think it has affected her growth. so i would be very happy with 5.5kg at 6 months!!

    he's 10 months now & is 13 pounds & I like him the size he is.
    He'll likely get bigger than that though -- he will probably end up around 15-16 lbs I'd guess, perhaps more -- he still has some growing to do and males will keep filling out a bit til age 2 or so. Some are slow developers, some fast. Jaspar was about 12 months before his weight began to stabilise and probably about 18 months before he settled on his current weight, though he can go up and down a pound or so within that. Intact males in particular will definitely keep filling out and putting on some extra weight until 2-2.5 years old, according to show breeders.

    she weighs 5.5 kilos which is about 11-12 lbs (i think ) Star's 6 months old now and I wondered if that's an average weight for a pup her age or if she's on the light side.
    That's a good, normal -- not low -- weight for that age. She will likely put on a few more pounds yet as she is only 6 months old -- and end up at the middle to upper end of the breed standard but you never know for sure til they finish growing. They are all different!

    I think Charlie may be on the small side. He's 8 months old and weighs 10lbs. 8 oz. (4.7 kg), but he was very sick recently, and that weight was one week after his illness. He didn't really care for his Canidae food, so I have switched him to Eagle Pack Holistic Select Chicken and Rice. He eats less than the minimum recommended serving for his age. He eats that better than the Canidae, but still seems to prefer to scavenge the kitchen floor first in hopes of something tastier.

    According to his breeder, he and his littermates and dam got sick on some bad Innova as pups. He's lagged in weight ever since. I keep hoping his appetite will improve.

    Holly weighed 9.5 pounds at 6 months. She is from a litter of seven, with mom weighing 14 pounds and dad 16 pounds. Don't know if this helps, but it sounds like your girl is doing just great!

    Maggie weighed 9 lbs when we brought her home at 81/2 months. She is now over 2 years old and weighs 12-13 lbs which the vet says is the ideal weight for her.

    My Charlie is 21 lbs. The vet said he's just fine where he's at, but no more than that. He's a year and half old. For a while there he was really skinny and then in the last few months he's actually filled out and looks healthy.

    The vet said he's not fat and he's not skinny anymore. He's perfect for his size. Thank God! because when he was little I practically had to beg him to eat! He still goes through his moods every once in a while where he doesn't want to eat. I've just learned not to worry so much. He'll eat when he's hungry. LOL!

    Do girls weigh less than the boys?
