His weight doesn't really have much to do with whether or not he's skinny - a larger puppy might be skinny at that weight, where a smaller puppy will be perfect. Does he look skinny to you?

My two GSD puppies were 8 pounds each at 7 weeks old. One month later, they each were 18 pounds. Holy Cow, 10 pounds in one month.

LOL...Odin went to the vet last Saturday for a check up and shots. He was 14 weeks old and had gained 15 pounds in three weeks...he was at 40lbs. He is growing like a weed.

I have a new puppy, at 7 weeks and a wfew days she was 12.1, today at 60 days on a different scale she is 15.6. She seems skinny too, she eats raw and I was worried she was not growing and bought a scale and she is definitely growing. Im open to advice if its too much ill feed less.

I have learned that even within the same litter there can be a significant difference in size. A couple of my boys littermates live close and we get together every so often. For a while the differences were astounding. The gaps have narrowed as they have gotten older but still there are definite differences.

I don't think there is anything to worry about at all. My boy was 7lbs at 8 weeks and 2 weeks later when we went back for the 2nd set of shots, he was 14lbs.

Now at 4 months, he's around 40lbs. Plenty of time to catch up! Mine was one of the smaller pups of a very large litter so I echo what the poster before said.

10-12 pounds a month is not at all unusual at that age. You'll start to see that rapid growth of puppyhood slow down in a few months, but for now it's perfectly normal.
