How accurate is this --- weight calculator --- moved
 
Find Out Your Puppy's Adult Weight | Puppy Chart

I was told this is pretty accurate so if anyone remember what their puppy weigh when they were 3-4 months old and grown up now . Please take a minute here and see what the calculator say and how much the actual weight so we know the margin.

Thanks !

It says my youngest (male GSD) will weigh 54.5lb as an adult.

I do not think it's very accurate. Their description says, "Generally, larger dogs take longer to reach their adult weight. Small dogs will be almost fully grown at around 10 months old, while really big dogs will continue to grow until around one and a half years old." But, on the chart for my GSD it shows the weight leveling off at 12 months of age. IMO that's not accurate for a male GSD.

I am interested in finding out if it is accurate (somewhat) too.. says Athena will weigh 113 lbs and Eden will weigh 96 lbs. Which I guess is not too far fetched since their moms were 100-110+....

Thanks for posting this it is interesting....

Those are some big dams x.x

I put in Apsel's info. Born 10/31/13. Weighed 45lbs on 2/19/14. It guesses 102.9lbs full grown, which is on par with his sire's weight of 105-110. I have not weighed him lately, I wish I had access to a scale which could accurately weigh him. The chart suggested he'd be close to 90pounds today, but I think that is a little lofty. He is probably high 70s.

I used some earlier recorded weights I had for the girls but yes they come from big lines. I have not weighed them in the last several weeks now but I imagine Athena is mid-60's by now. She was 54 lbs at 18 weeks. I would like to measure her but I do not quite get how to do that yet. I tried it a few weeks back and got a shoulder measurement of 22 inches but I think I was too low on her shoulder after reading some more about it.... :confused:
