Our last two females were 65 lbs. The dam of our current pup is about 80-85 lbs.

nice looking girl! pretty big for a 7 month female. even after clicking on the pics they are too small. i'm guessing you have some kind of fisher price camera.

She looks nearly full grown in the pics. She's going to be a big girl.

She's pretty, looks like she has a long body. Long body makes them weigh more than other dogs their height. Tape a yard stick to a door frame and use a book on the top of her withers 9shoulders) if you want to see how tall she is.

My female was nearly full grown at 7 months, just grew fast, she was almost 20lbs when I got her at 8 1/2 weeks. At 14 months, she's only 23" tall and 70lbs. Hasn't hardly put on any weight since she was 7 months, maybe 5lbs.

How gorgeous! Weight seems to vary greatly depending on their genetics. My 3 y/o male was 95 lbs when we adopted him (at one year old) and is now around 135. :-0 Our new girl is nine months old,70 lbs and still growing. I don't anticipate that she will get much heavier, maybe just a little taller and more filled out. Honestly, if we aren't planning on showing (and breeding), health is all that's important.
