Can you estimate adult weight?

Sorry, I know this has been discussed before, but I wasn't patient enough to find the original thread. Anyway, Cricket had her last set of shots today...she's 17 weeks old now and weighed in at 8.5 lbs. I'm just wondering how big she'll get...she's got MONSTER paws, so I'm assuming she'll at least double that??

So she is four months ish? I would ask your breeder how big mommy and daddy are and that will give you a good base to guess from. Maybe Cricket will grow up fast then stop at her ideal weight. I think Tito weighed a lot when we were taking him for his shots, about 8 pounds too and he has stopped at 12 lbs at almost 8 months old now (but he is still a chunk

I also heard about the foot size somehow predicting the adult size but I don't know how true that is.

Betzie just went to the vet and she weighed around 4lbs.6oz or so and she was 16 weeks. I think she is going to be on the small side which is fine with me. Jillee weighs around 10 pounds at a year.

Bugsy was 3.8 lbs at 12 weeks, 10 lbs when he was between 6.5 and 7 months, 10.8 lbs at a year and now at almost 23 month he hovers at 11.8 lbs (give or take a few ounces).

That seems like quite a bit to me, but it's very possible that Cricket is from a fast growing line, where she will grow a lot now but then stop soon. Have you asked her breeder about how the line grows? S/he should know. Kubrick was 7.25lbs at 4 months.

weight

Riki weighs 13 pounds, neutered 4 1/2 year old male, needs to lose about one pound. Daisy is smaller and is 10 1/2 pounds at 4 years. I think Daisy's ideal weight is where she is, Riki should be 12. He is muscular...but some friends think he weighs more than he should. He does have a thick coat though.

Suzy just went to the vet at 17 weeks and weighed over 6 pounds, 6 pounds 2 ounces on her chart but she squirmed so much that the scale was all over the place.

Last week, on Cicero's 5 month mark, he weighed 8 lbs exactly. His growth has seemed to slow down, but who knows, he might end up a pig!

Havanna is 21 weeks old today. Monday, she weighed 7 lb 4 oz. Her biological mom weighs around 7 lb, and her dad about 9 lb. According to the vet, my baby is all grown up!
