    Hudson & unnamed puppy!

    Re: How big will she get???

    Hudson turns one next week. He is 25 pounds. He was about 3 pounds at 12 weeks. Vet and breeder thought he would be around 21 pounds. He was 11 pounds at 6 months. He is slim and fit, but extremely muscular. The vet told us that generally they double from six months, but he obviously went over that. I think he's done growing.

    Re: How big will she get???

    I would say she will be about 22 to 23 pounds. If she weighs more than that, she may be too chunky. She is getting to the age you may need to cut back on her food intake. Once they get about a year old I would cut back to about a cup a day. That's how much we feed our adult female Frnchies.

    Tigger

    Re: How big will she get???

    We got Tigger at 7months and he weighed 19 lbs, At ten months he was 23 lbs, now at 26 months he is 24-1/2 lbs he looks huge compared to how he looked when he was just a pound lighter. His weight obviously has shifted as he went from puppy to adult. He is intact I don't know what effect this has on his development. His neck and shoulders have developed so much from nine months to about 18 months, it's amazing when we look at pics knowing he was essentially the same weight. His body seems to have stopped changing the past few months.

    Schatzi and Pierce

    Re: How big will she get???

    This makes me feel better about Pierce. He is a little over 7 months and weighed 27.2 lbs at the vet last week. He gets around a cup a day of his food and maybe a little from Schatzi's bowl if he can get away with it. He has always had a bigger build, so I am not too surprised he is this size, I am just glad to know he should start slowing down. We went back to see his breeder last month, which was so fun, and his dad weighs around 28lbs. They look so much alike!

    My little guy Oliver is six months and only 12 pounds. I'm afraid he's going to be really tiny. Any idea how to stock him up lol

I was giving Jax 3/4 cup twice a day but have recently dropped to to 1/2 a cup twice a day because he does get treats every day and he has been maintaining his weight. I have vet papers at home that lists his weight at each visit.
    Yup, right down to the allergies. Did you get your Apoquel? They had to give me the small milligram last time because they were out of the larger. Seems to work fine. We drove to Florida and have been here a couple weeks and he only has one hot spot that I treated a couple times with the Vetericyn and it's gone. Maybe they are related. My dog comes from a Smokey Valley lines.

    Yes, we did get the Apoquel. He was on Temaril P while we were waiting and because of the dosage, he was a doped up zombie. He was on Simplicef a few weeks ago for bacteria (he had been constantly licking/chewing at his paws) but he is still licking them like crazy so I am taking him to his dermatologist next week. I've tried the ACV and povidone iodine soaks and neither one has helped. One of his back paws is bright red from him always going at it. These guys...

    Yup, they have their issues but they're sooooo cute :-D Sarge is excited everyday for his new traveling adventures. Loves all the different hotels and loves the house we rente here in Florida. Plenty of room for his Frenchie 500. Get better Jax!!

    I regularly attend my frenchie meet ups and I have to say I agree with you. I have run across very few Frenchies under 18 pounds. Most are 25 + and to be honest many of them are overweight which I really don't like to see. It's hard on them and they already have enough issues with their cute smooshy faces. My Batty is snoring louder and louder these days.

    I do have a good friend who has a female that is over a year and is 18 pounds. She is a petite little princess. I just love love love Lulu. Pictured here....

    Bisou & Shasta

    Re: How big will she get???

    Update! Bisou seems to have hit a plateau. She's been 20.6 pounds consistently for nearly six weeks now. She's 10 months now, and I know they don't "fill out" completely until they're a year or two old... is this normal? Has she hit the weight she's going to stay or is she just at a lull in her growth?

    Gidget, Olivia & Wilson

    Re: How big will she get???

    Gidget at 2, is a compact 23 lbs.
    Wilson at 1 (and this is the one I weighed on the kitchen scale daily ~ if not twice a day ~ because he had passive regurgition and at one point dropped below 3.5 lbs) is now a Whopping and very solid 27 lbs.
    Olivia (Wilson's sister) at 1 is somewhere in between the other two.

    Size / frame wise, they are all about the same. Olivia has the biggest and I think true-est bulldog face and body.
