2 Kgs is about 4.5 lbs (give or take) so yeah I would say he is a little small. What are you feeding him and how often? Is he a good eater (not refusing to eat)?

My pup was 8 weeks when I got him and he weighed 3.8kgs. Other people (breeders) were telling me that at 10 weeks he was the size of a 4 week old. He was healthy and from a litter of 7 (1 died) so not a big litter.

He is now 6 months and weighs 26.1kg.

I hope your pup grows into a healthy dog.
