sechattin As long as he's healthy and not getting fat, I wouldn't worry about keeping to the weight guidelines or anything like that. Each puppy will have their own individual rate of growth. At 8 weeks, Kaiju was only 5.5 pounds, but he's growing steadily into an average sized shepherd.

Mocha I apparently brought home a calf. My boy weighed 18lbs at 8 weeks. Last time I weighed him he was at 70lbs at 6 months, and people STILL tell me he's too skinny -_-

SNKETR Following this thread. At 8 weeks my male weighed 8.5lbs and at 11 weeks only 10.5lbs. The vet said he looked fine, and to me he does as well.

mamatolaceynchief That's why I was confused when my vet told me that I was OVER feeding him.. and it was only 1 cup.. like this morning when he woke me up to go to the bathroom it was 4 AM... after he went to the bathroom he was so fussy and wouldn't go back to sleep because he was so hungry so he ate a cup of food at that time.. I usually feed at 7 AM - 12-1 PM - then again at 5... is there anyway he won't be so hungry at crazy hours of the night?

He is officially 8 weeks today!

trcy Riley was 6 lbs 7oz ay 8 weeks. Very thin. The vet said to feed him 5 times a day until he gained enough weight. He gained weight nicely. The last time he was weighed at about 9 months he was 75 pounds, but not heavy or overweight at all.

Great. You will see, soon you will have a moose sized animal and it will wonder where the little puppy went.

I meant to say I feed Mystique 3 x a day the Wellness large breed for puppies. My mind was thinking faster than my fingers were typing.

gurlonfire2004 I feed BBW large breed puppy. My pup is 11.5 weeks, and she weighed 20 pounds last week. She won't eat more than 2 1/2 cups a day right now. But I still offer her 3 cups.
