Chief is 6 1/2 months and 54.6 lbs.. He will turn 7 months July 4th. He will be on the small side I guess.

My girl was about 40 lbs at 6 months. She's 1 now and is only about 50 lbs, and that's being generous.

A person who has never owned a dog, has missed a wonderful part of life.

Leo went from 48lbs. at his 5 1/2 month check up to 59 (I say 60 lbs) when he was microchipped this past week (7 months on Dec. 22)...and we thought he would be on the lean side but he continues to grow :-)

(he does have a pinch of collie in him along the old history lines)

Worried about my pup

My puppy, Hyperion, is a male nearly 7 months and only 35 lbs. He gets exercise, fed roughly 2+ cups of Iams ProActive Health Smart for Large Breed puppies (plus a mix of a salmon/rice food because he has bad dandruff and it has done wonders).

Regardless, he gains an average of 4lbs per two weeks. Friends/family don't think he looks small, but the vet technician asked if I expect him to get over 50 (more in a condescending manner than anything).

Now the breeder did tell me he was underdeveloped, so I knew he would be a smaller male to begin with. He has had a few bumps along the way (ear infection, skin issues, etc.), but I feel like he might be too underdeveloped. He is always happy and playful, running around, has a good temperament, even talks back to me and can pull stuff off my counters (he is very long, just skinny I think). It was discussed, as she has been in the business for 20 years and I did my research prior to the purchase/adoption, that he should get a good spurt about a month in from owning him (I got him at 3 months), which he did, and end up at about 85-90lbs. But at nearly 7 months I feel like he might miss that mark.

Any suggestions would be great. He has a follow up appointment for his ear infection at the vet in two weeks, which they weigh him every visit.

Fritz was 65+lbs at 6 months..his butt was not quite in the scale...

JDKerner, didn't anyone tell you good things come in small packages? . I wouldn't fret, your dog may surprise you one day. My boy WAS the runt of the litter, he was 1/2 the size of his sister, he was given an extra bottle at night. The breeder came for a visit, he is larger than his sister!

Oh I hope so. I knew what I was getting into when I picked him, he was also 1/2 if not smaller than any of his siblings, but I when the vets start saying stuff about his weight it make me paranoid!

No matter what anyone says about your dog, you are going to love him and do the best you can for him! Sometimes people have bad days, say mean things..then think about it, but its too late to take back. Don't fret! Post a picture, lets see the handsome boy!
