Stella is a petite blenheim female. She stands approx. 11" at the shoulders. She is kinda barrel-chested. She weighs 16-17 lbs. which is a good weight for her. She is a retired show champion that came into my life when she was 5 years old. She is now 8 years old. When we go out to pet stores or dog festivals and we see other cavaliers, Stella is always by far the smallest. Most other cavs we have seen locally have been at least 20 lbs. or over and way taller than Stella.
