Survey-Weight/Age/Food/Sex of Havanese

Mine-Shadow, 10.4 lbs. @ 1 yr. 9 months, Male, Victor Alaskan Feast(salmon and sweet potato grainfree), no treats.

It seems like there is quite a range of sizes/weights in Havanese. He is a slim active boy. But I worry so I am wondering how his weight compares to other havs!

Zumba just turned 6 months on January 2. 7.5 lbs of pure energy as of yesterday. She eats Orijen Puppy food and Stella and Chewy dinner patties, and LOADS of treats during the day for training purposes. They are all considered quality treats, with a minimum amount of carb content. I asked the vet how do I know her weight is acceptable since i worry about the amount of treats she gets, and she told me that i want to feel her ribs, and as I work my way down both sides of her body towards the tail, I want to feel it go in slightly where there are no more ribs. If it goes in too much, or if it protrudes there, then I need to watch her diet. Zumba looks roly-poly because of all her hair, but when I feel her, she’s perfect.

What is a good weight for one Havanese is not right for another. I have three, all are slim and fit. They range from 10 lbs to 17 lbs.
