Age/Weight

How old is your Havanese and how much do they weigh? What age did you have them Spayed/Neutered and how did it change their weight or behavior?

Tori is 2 yrs. old and weighs around 7.5 lbs. She was spayed at 9 mos. old and it didn't change a thing about her behavior/weight.

Mine are 5 months old and 9.1 and 9.2 lbs. The darker one is heavier. He has a much smaller bone structure. Go figure. He has always been .1 lbs heavier than his brother but he is smaller. They are scheduled for castration at 6 months. This age sound alright with everyone? My giant dogs were fixed at 3 months but that was the vet's preference because of size/weight issues. My Saint is 180 and my Newfie was alright until she was fixed and then she put on weight and I had to restrict her to a special diet. I could no longer free feed.

Dexter is 11 months and his weight is pretty stable around 11 1/2-12 pounds for several months.

Dexter was neutered at 6 months. At six months, you Hav is still growing and at this time Dexter was weighing in at 8 pounds. I did not notice any increase in appetite, but have always noticed, if Dexter is not hungry he will not eat...he loves those snacks whenever they are provided....so, I go easy on the snacks when Dexter is not eating the good food.

The breeder had told me that Dexter will probably be around 12 pounds when he is an adult. Check with your breeder, they are your best weight prediction for your Hav. And............then..........it is always fun to watch weight charts.

Tucker is just shy of 6 mos. old and weighs 10.5#. The breeder told us he would be a big boy. She also thought he should be between 9 and 12 mos. before neutering because he would be just about through growing and neutering possibly has an effect on bone growth.

Chico is fourteen months and weighs about ten and one half lbs. He has been this weight for a long time now. He was neutered at six months which the breeder required.

Chloe is 5.2lbs today at 16 weeks. I guess she is on the small side from what I've seen here.
