Under developing puppy??
Hi guys, I recently started a thread about a extremely underweight GSD. I got some good feed back, and have managed to use some of the advice.
My concern is that my puppy is coming up to 4 months old and weighs 7.5kg, around 16 pounds. I know that he is underweight, as that is how I got him when I purchased him. I believe the breeder neglected him and as the runt of the litter he found it hard to gain the weight he needed from 8-12 weeks.
He is eating fine now and in the space of a month has basically doubled his weight.
That's the story, and this is my question and I would love some feedback.
Does my dog look like a 4 month old and if not could he be a month behind in his development due to his poor start? Will it affect his health, and physical growth??
I shall post a couple of pics so you can make some comments. His legs are very short but do seem to ge getting longer.
Maybe I'm just over concerned, but I really love this dog and I hope he will be ok.
