Does strypher need to put on some weight ?

My puppy strypher now turning 4 months today weights 35 pounds . She got her last shots but I really feel she is on the slim side even tho the vet told me she is fine. Let me know what y'all think Does strypher need to put on some weight ?-imageuploadedbypg-free1397910061.762056.jpgDoes strypher need to put on some weight ?-imageuploadedbypg-free1397910082.141178.jpg

Looks great to me. You want a lean pup for better bone development.

I took my 4 month old girl on monday to the vet and she weighed 34.5. She eats a lot, but our vet said she didn't look bad either. Not sure what the average weight for a 4 month old female is.

Best of Luck to you!

She seems fine to me too, and if your vet says so then I'm sure she is. I think vets sometimes overlook too much weight, but never too lean. BTW, we have the same wall colors, lol Your puppy's a cutie!

She looks perfect. You want them to be on the lean side.

I worry some that Indie is a little scrawny at 13 months. My vet said she's fine. She's also said they tend to bulk up between ages 2 and 4 and it's really hard to get weight off if they get too "bulky". She hasn't let me down in 20 years so I'm trusting her on this.
