Smile Final Size

Hey Guys,

Our Uno was born September 21st 2010, around 21 weeks ago. He currently weighs 9.6 lbs. I felt his stomach and I can feel the ribs easily, so I don't think he is overweight. He is a singleton puppy born to parents who weigh around 10-13 lbs.


I was wondering how much bigger he is going to get since he is just 5 months old currently. Do you think his growth will stall soon? Has anyone seen Havanese stop growing so quickly?


Thanks.

My Bailey was a fast grower and I thought he was going to be gigantic. The other two grew slower and longer. Bailey now, at almost three years old, weighs about 13-14 lbs., Milo, just over 10 and Ruby can't be more than 9, if she's that.

Jack is 6 months and weighs 15 pounds. The vet thinks that he may gain 1-2 more pounds and another 1/2 inch but he seems to be slowing down. She believes that he is probably close to his adult size.

TTFN,
Pam

Ha - Geri, I thought the same thing about Augie. And he had such huge feet when he was a puppy, compared to a couple of the other puppies whose feet I had noticed in his litter. But then, he slowed down and is in the same range as Bailey, around 13.5 lbs.

Pam, I didn't realize Jack was such a big boy.

Yeah, we purposely looked for a breeder with the larger Havs. His mom was 14 lbs. Dad-16 lbs.

TTFN,

My Brady was always a big boy! He was also a singleton and was 4 1/2 pounds when he came home at 8 weeks. He was big from day 1 since he had plenty of room and plenty of milk from his mommy. His parents are on the larger side (Mom is around 15 and Dad 16 pounds or so). Brady is 19 pounds and is nicely built. He did grow quite a bit in the first 6 months. He slowed down after that.

Wow....I never knew a Havanese could be 19 lbs. I saw one that was 16 and thought he was pretty big. I'm hoping Uno turns out to be around 15ish although his parents are nowhere close.

Tillie is 8 months and is around 8.5 lbs... her breeder thinks she'll top out around 9-10 lbs... we don't keep a super close eye on her wieght, she was 7 when she was spayed at 7 months and has definitly filled out since then... I am thinking she is almost done growing, but have hear of many that fill out up to 2 yrs old!

I am going to have to monitor Jack's weight closely once he levels out. The vet wants to keep him on the skinny side because of his wonky right leg.

TTFN,
Pam

There are quite a few 19 pound plus havanese around here. Brady fluctuates between 18 and 19. Like I said, he isn't fat at all, he is just a very big version of a hav More of him to love. He is a rough and tumble kind of guy, so being big works for him My other 2 havs are 10 pounds and 15 pounds.
