Hello from Pixie!!

Hi All,

This is my first post here and my puppy (Pixie) is 6.5 months old and has been spayed recently. Vet also pulled out few of her baby teeth as they did not fall of on their own. She is recovering well and getting back to her normal routine.

I am a bit concerned about her weight though. She was 1 pound at 9 weeks and now she is 6.81 pounds (6.5 Months). She was the smallest in the litter. What can I expect her adult weight to be?

Welcome to the forum. I found the following information on the Havanese Club of Americaís website:

When predicting adult size, the two easiest formulas to remember are FOUR FOLD and DOUBLE UP. Four Fold: The weight of a healthy Havanese puppy at 8 weeks of age is approximately 1⁄4 of adult weight. Double Up: The weight of a healthy Havanese puppy at 16 weeks is approximately 1⁄2 of adult weight. The 16 week weight calculation is more reliable than the 8 week one. The 8 week calculation is reasonably accurate to within +/- 15% while the 16 week calculation is +/-10%

You can read the full article here http://www.havanese.org/files/HCAHorizonsVol4Issue4.pdf

That said, according to those formulas, Panda would have been 16 lbs as an adult and Pixel would have been 12 lbs. (both from the 8 week weight and the 16 week weight) Panda is actually 12 1/2 lbs and Pixel is actually just about 10 lbs, sometimes a bit under. I don't have puppy weights for Kodi except for when I brought him home, so I can't check the formula on him.

Thanks Krandall. I hope Pixie reaches 9-10 pounds by the time she is an adult!

I guess you have to take these formulas with a grain of salt !
