Weight and size

I am thinking my Havanese Hank is a lil on the small size or do they grow alot after age 1, he was born Feb 2nd 2015, He now weights 7 lbs 4 oz. Not quite 7 1/2 lbs but close. He has not gained any weight for a few months. He also has tiny bone structure not what most havs have they have larger bone structure.

He does sound small. My Sophie was born the day before Hank and she's 10 lbs. I hope she stays there.

Sophie's little Hav friend, May, is 3 weeks younger and weighs about 7 lbs

And then there's my Lincoln , who is 4.5 mos, and is around 8-8.5 pounds (last we checked at the vets!). They are thinking he will be around 15 pounds, as he was 7.5 pounds at 16 weeks, and his dad is 15 pounds.

Hank is adorable! Our Havanese Gracie is very small as well. She's 6 1/2 months old and weighed 4.8 lbs at her spay surgery 1 1/2 weeks ago. She may be up to 4.9 lbs or so now. She's always been petite. Her blood work is fine and she is very healthy, so she's just smaller than average. I know she still has some filling out to do, but I'm also curious as to how much growth to expect after one year.

I'm happy to see this. I suspect Gracie may follow Molly's growth rate. I'd be very happy if she gets to 6.6 lbs. Molly is adorable by the way!

Thanks everyone! I was a lil concerned. I guess I won't be any longer. I am not sure how big his mom was she was deceiving because she was shaved and didn't have long hair. Hank is deceiving also because he has long hair. That is Hank when he was little he's almost all white now. He was so darn adorable when he was small. He is still adorable just not with alot of color. All your babies are adorable!
Hank has had blood work also, that came out fine. Also his hair doesn't grow very fast. His sister has 3 times the hair he does and it grows so much faster than his. Her hair is super silky ,his is around his neck but the rest of it is a lil more wirey. But when it comes to brains he surpassed his sister! He is super smart!! Picks up on things super fast! Likes to retrieve likes to run and play with the kids especially! He still does this cute lil hop when he runs. I ask him to find it and he will find his last toy he was playing with.
Another funny thing he does is hides his treats he will hide them in my purse or behind the pillows on the couch or stuffed in a corner somewhere. It is too funny! Sometimes I find them in my shoes.

Oh I also wanted to say his tail goes over his back but not tight like typical Havanese. Not that that means anything.

Well, although a lot of Havanese HAVE "tight tails" that is not what the breed standard calls for. The tail should arch up over the back, with the bone just touching. Of course, there are many worse conformation faults than a tight tail, so many times dogs win (and are bred) in spite of tight tails. But you are right, even if a Havanese has a tail that is TOO loose (not curving forward over the back) it's certainly no problem in a pet dog!

Small size isn't a problem either, as long as it's not a result of a health problem like a heart defect or liver shunt. As long as the dog is healthy, even if they are too small to meet the breed standard, they can be perfect pets!

I love him just the way he is!! I don't care! I fell in love with him the moment I laid eyes on him! I would never give him up for anything! He plays with the grand kids they just love it! They bring out the best in him! So cute to watch them run and play. He was playing with their cat before we left their house.
