Almost 14 weeks and current weight question

Post by Limeybastard »

I just tried an online puppy weight calculator. It said my puppy is underweight protected wise. I don't think that to be true. He was born 7th July 2021 and his current weight at 14 weeks is 7.5lbs. The calculator estimates his full grown weight to be a mere 13.5 lbs. ?

Ozzy was 10lbs at 14 weeks and he now weighs a lean 20.5lbs at 15 months and 15.25 inches tall. But he's considered big for the breed. I think usually they double the weight at 14 weeks for estimated adult size.

That calculator I used was a duff I think. I used another and it projected weight of around 17-18lbs. I prefer larger to be honest. There's a well known breeder near me that breeds "teacups" which I avoided. Tobias' parents looked big when I saw them. Mum was 20 lbs dad was about 18lbs.

Jasper was 7.5lbs 10 inches at 10 weeks, 15.5lbs 14 inches at 19 weeks, hes remained at 22lbs for the past year. He's a tall and very skinny mini 16.5 inches :))
Barney was 8.6lbs 11 inches at 10 weeks, 14.5lbs 13 inches at 16 weeks, full grown was 25lbs at 15.5 inches. He was true stocky schnauzer build.

I will add that Ozzy is lean but stocky schnauzer build.
