My Enya was about the same at that age. As long as your pup is healthy, is there a problem?

You are not alone! Your pup just might be on the petite side. My pup is 2 years old and 49lbs and 6 months she was 35lbs. It happens but as long as your pup is completely happy and healthy...?????

No never a problem with slow growth just wondering if it was normal

What size were her parents? Enya's mother was on the smaller side so I expect Enya might be also. I love your dog's ears! They're huge! *G*

If it's an appropriate weight for her current height, I wouldn't worry about it. She's still young with a lot more time to grow. Puppies can end up naturally smaller or bigger than their parents. I have a friend with a GSD puppy who is consistently 20-25lbs smaller than her littermates, but it's appropriate for her size, as she is just turning out to be a smaller dog. Whereas my puppy came from smaller parents but she is ending up larger!

What a lovely puppy; I'll take her if she's too small for you. If she doesn't have a parasite load and her bloodwork is normal, one thing to consider is what, how much and how often you're feeding her. There are several diet and nutrition gurus on the list, with any luck they'll post suggestions.
