Question Weight question?

I read somewhere(please don't ask where since I don't remember,LOL)
that you can gauge how big a puppy will be when they are about 3 or 4 months of age.I think it said that if your pup say is 5lbs at 4 months you double it and the pup will be 10 lbs at maturity.Has anyone ever heard of this?
I spoke to my breeder recently and she was surprised that at 3 months Duncan is already 6 lbs.LOL!!

I always heard that whatever they weighed @ 6 mos. then you double it. Not so sure that is always very accurate though! What do the breeders on here think?

Brady was always big, but he stopped putting on weight around 8 months old. I can't remember his different weights at different ages, but I do remember that he was almost 4 pounds when he came home at 8 weeks! He grew very fast and is now 17 pounds. He is a big boy, but not fat at all. I kind of like having a big hav as he is not fragile and loves to rough house. Although, I do miss being able to carry him in a dog purse. That didn't last too long.

Tom King said that there is no sure formula. Some tiny puppies in his litter turn out to be the biggest. However I think it would be fun for those who have several weights on their dogs to share them. Olliesmom always said that he was as many pounds as he was months old and he leveled off between 8-9 #.

Here are Brutus weights:
10 weeks 3.4#
14 weeks 4.6#
16 weeks 5.8#
21 weeks 7.4#

My prediction is that Smarty will weigh more than 10#

If you read my other post you know Smarty will eat anything that is not called dog food. Her favorite is rabbit and deer poop. Try that it will help Mango grow.

Hello all. My Brewer is 13 lbs. and is 8 months. Is it safe to assume he has reached his final weight ( I hope).
