Default Is our puppy fat?

Our pup is 10 weeks old today. He currently weighs 22 pounds, but he seems a lot larger than our other boy when he was 10 weeks.

Is our pup just big, or is he overweight?

In the pictures he doesn't look too big or overweight.

If you are questioning his weight it's best to see what your vet says

I don't see much of a tuck at all. What and how much are you feeding?

I think he could be a little leaner. He should be nice and lean with a waist when viewed from above. You should be able to feel his ribs easily when you touch him with maybe a rib or so showing.

TBH it's hard to really judge it by these pictures. Maybe post better pictures ? The best person to tell you would be a vet.

I agree with this, but he looks fine to me.

Hi. This is my first time on so I am not sure how to really use yet. But I wanted to comment that your puppy doesn't look fat but mine is close to yours. Mine was born Nov 6th and is 25 lbs. and im not sure how much I should be feeding him and how much water I should be giving him. Should I leave water out at all times? Hmmm Is our puppy fat?-imageuploadedbypg-free1390489832.281315.jpg

I leave water out at all times. I dont leave food out because I have a dog that eats all his food and the other dogs food and still wants more if i let him..lol
Look on the directions of your bag of kibble (unless you feed raw and others will have to help you there.) it should list the amount to feed. Every dog food is different. What dog food are you feeding?
