Size/Weight Estimate?

Can you estimate a puppy's full-grown size when they are young? Our Riley is 13lbs @ 10 weeks. Her breeder thinks she will be on the slim side around the mid 40lbs range, but I was wondering if there is any way we can make an estimated guess at it. How big were your dogs at 10 weeks and how heavy are they now?

Scarlet was 11 lbs at 8 weeks and now, at 2 yrs, is 78 lbs.

Dexter was 9 lbs at 8 weeks and now, at almost 3 yrs, is 75 lbs

Odin's weight so far:

9 weeks: 12 lbs
10 weeks: 12.5 lbs
12 weeks: 15 lbs

We have to head to the vet this week for shots (he's 14 weeks) and he's grown a ton. Curious to see what the scale says.

Re: Size/Weight Estimate?

We were just at the vet this week and Pippa (5 1/2 months) is 32 pounds! We are excited to see where she will end up....

Dax was 12 lbs. at 11 weeks and is now 50 lbs at 18 months.

An excellent chart was compiled by one of the forum members for his dog Bohdi.

Re: Size/Weight Estimate?

Thanks for all the input!

We just weighed Riley and it looks like she may have already gained another 2lbs... is that possible??? I've never had a big dog before, so this rate of growth is crazy fast for me!

Re: Size/Weight Estimate?

I think it would be pretty hard to estimate their adult size with great accuracy, but of course, you can tell a lot by looking at the parents. (Same with people!)

threefsh, the term "big dog" is relative. I used to think Willie was a big boy at 70 lbs. I have a neighbor whose dog gets loose fairly often. I always snap a leash on him, put him in the car and take him home... but first, I let him into Willie's back yard and they have a good romp together! This dog's name is "Sonic", he's a male German Shepherd, and he must weigh 120 lbs. Now THAT'S a big dog! Next to Sonic, Willie looks positively petite. ;D They are friends, though.
