Default I found this to be interesting, wonder if it's true.

For medium to large breed puppies you can get an idea of their adult weight by doubling his weight at 14 weeks and then adding another half of his 14 week figure (eg. your puppy weighs 15lbs at 14 weeks, so... 15+15=30 +7.5= total adult weight 37.5lbs)

Again for medium to large breeds, at 6 months old, your puppy may weigh around two-thirds of his adult weight. Giant breeds are more likely to be just about half of their adult weight at this age.

at 14 weeks my girl was about 32 lbs...prediction based on that 32+32+16= 80 lbs... I don't really think this is accurate to be honest..Saw it somewhere in an old thread -- she's 18 months old now and at roughly 64ish lbs, been steady around there for many many months. Might be more accurate for other dogs though.

My female was at 68 pounds forever and is now 78 pounds. She filled out after she turned 2. I never thought she would get past 68.

Your boy weighed what my boy did. You should post a pic of him.

Mine is a smaller dog (or medium dog) and at 14 weeks weighed 12 pounds. That puts him at 30 pounds. He's 52 pounds.
