Stonevintage I used this. It was super accurate for mine. She gained 8-10llbs per month until about 6 mos then slowed down some. But, at 14 weeks I put her #'s in and it said 72.5 lbs at adulthood. She's 2 years 1 month and 73 lbs.

She is from larger parents so she followed the male rate of growth until about 8 mos, then her's slowed where the chart showed the male's to still continue at a pretty good rate to 11 mos before the slow down.

But man, can't get much more accurate than that.

voodoolamb Well, I put in Mako's weight at 8 weeks and the magic calculator told me my boy would weight a whopping 17.3lbs.


He's actually sitting around 70lbs right now at 14 months.

dranseth According to the calculator my puppy will turn out to be 180 lbs. I find that to be inaccurate. Lol

trcy I just did the projection again. It's probably accurate now that he is almost grown. Adult weight is projected to be 74 pounds.

trcy It's not very accurate. At one point it had my dog at 85 pounds. As he grew the projected weight kept changing. My dog is 73 pounds he is 13 months old.

JustJim Honestly, I don't think it is as accurate as looking at the puppy and parents and guessing. Per this, Z (GSD) should weigh 41.9# as an adult; she actually runs just over 60#. Best guesses before was a year old were that as an adult she'd weigh about 65#.

I ran it with other dogs I have the numbers for. Female Aussies were over-estimated by an average of 7#, male Aussies underestimated by about the same or a bit more. It consistently underestimated adult weights for Chessies, males and females.

scarfish says my 75lb 6 month old will be 97lbs full grown. i hear the rule of thumb is 6 months they will be 75% of adult weight so that pretty much what i already had in mind. only time will tell.

Thewretched My 8mo girl is 71, and says her adult weight will be around 77-80ish, probably correct, depends on when she wants to stop growing

Ace GSD I guess all dogs growth rate are different. some started of slower or faster than the others its impossible to have a simple calculator like this. Ace 10-12 weeks gained 5 lbs then 12-14 week he gained 10 lbs and at one time he gained 5 lbs in 3 weeks.

thank you everyone who participate and help me to figure this out .
