At what age was your dog half his/her adult weight?

If anyone can recall I was interested in knowing how old your pup was when they weighed approx half their adult weight. For instance..if your dog is 80 lbs. How old when they were 40 lbs.

Im intersted so i can get a feel of how big Tazor may get. He just weighed in at 58.9 lbs and hes not quite 4.5 months. He is approx 24" in height.

I know they all grow at dif rates, thats why i would love to see more than one answer.


Thanks in advance

around 4 months sounds perfect. Jinx grew like a weed and hasn't gained more then 3-4 lbs since she was about 5-6 months old she's grown and weight has shifted but that's about it.

That would be great if he would slow down, I worry about his joints.. I'm hoping he isnt way oversized but it seems he is leaning that way. I dont know his parents size as I saved him from a breeder putting him to sleep for vomit, dia, at 8 weeks.

Thanks so much for responding...everyone!

Looks like I'm in for a guy who's a bit out of standard. He's about 45-50 pounds and 4.5 months right now. All of his litter mates (males anyway) outweigh him by at least 15 pounds though. Maybe I've got the runt.

Kopper was 40lb at 4.5 months. He's currently 75lb and very immature looking-- slab-sided, lanky, no chest or shoulders at all. I expect him to mature at 80 or slightly above.

I wouldn't freak out too much. Everyone thought Jinx was going to be huge at the rate she was growing she was 65-70 lbs by 5-6 months she was a bit overweight but wasn't really fat however after about 6 months she stopped putting on weight and balanced out really well and still right around 70 lbs at 16 months. We did have issues with Pano and I really worried about her joints also but so far she seems good and finally seems to have outgrown the pano issues. I wouldn't freak out quite yet and I know how hard it to do over say because she was easily gaining 5+ lbs each week and just grew like a weed but she didn't substantially slow down in just a few short months.
