    Is this weight about right?

    Our puppy makes 15 weeks tomorrow and is weighing 8.6lbs. According to weight calculators online, she'll weigh around 15lbs full grown. Seems small. Does anyone remember about where their females were at the same age? Thanks

    That does seem pretty small, but I cannot compare but hopefully others with experience will come along soon.

    They grow in spurts so the calculator may well be wrong. Breed standard weight is 19 to 28 pounds.

    Not sure about the pups weight as we just got hazel not very long ago. She is almost 3 years old and weighs 25 lbs.

    I think I posted this on another topic already but my heavy girl was weighed this weekend and she was 12.5 pounds at 15 weeks old

    I was a little surprised how much she weighed. She has gotten quite a bit bigger since we have had her for three weeks so we will need to monitor her weight to make sure she doesn't get over weight ha

    Good luck @trishkidd24! I guess it should be fine so long as she is not on the chubby side?

    I shared this on another thread as well, but if anyone is interested in seeing their puppy's weight progress based on breed standards click the website below.
    It stated my pup was 5% below average weight for the breed. Not sure how accurate this website is, but kind of neat to see.
