Puppy Weight at 8 Weeks Old

For all of the adult vizsla owners out there... any idea what your puppy weighed at 8 weeks and how much he/she weighs as an adult/grown vizsla? Our new vizsla puppy is 8 weeks old today and (as of yesterday at the vet) he weighed 8.5 lbs. Another vizsla owner saw him and said "oh, he's really small for 8 weeks" so I'm wondering if he's going to be a petite vizsla? Thanks!

Puppy Weight at 8 Weeks Old

At 8 weeks our pup was 15 lbs. He has grown to range between 65 and 70 lbs , he is a big muscled boy. His parents were both around 50 lbs.

Re: Puppy Weight at 8 Weeks Old

Wow, Canadian Expy! That's a big boy!

Dexter was 11 lbs. @ 8 weeks I think, but he was biggest male in his litter by far. He's now about 56 lbs., and tall (26" at the shoulder). He's skinny and could usually use a couple more pounds on him... but he just runs everything off!

Our weim pup was 11 lbs. @ 9 weeks I think, but she turned out to be a tiny little thing (not quite 50 lbs. and not even 22" at the shoulder - she needs a diet, haha). She was pretty on par with Dexter's weight at various ages until about 6 months. Her growth rate slowed way down after that, whereas he kept going for a while.

P.S. Thank you for the puppy pic

Re: Puppy Weight at 8 Weeks Old

My pup was around that weight at 8 weeks and he is now 60+ pounds at 2.5 years old. He is intact so I expect him to top out close to 70 pounds.

Dextersmom - we get a lot of comments on his size. He was the biggest pup in his litter.

I just looked back on my vet records, which track his weight on every visit. At 6 weeks he was 10 1/2 lbs, at 9 weeks he was 16 1/2 pounds. I think he typically gained almost 2 lbs per week when he was growing.

Our girl was 11 pounds at 8 weeks old! She has stayed pretty petite, though, at only 45 pounds full grown.

Re: Puppy Weight at 8 Weeks Old

I have to say, I really believe in the "how big are the paws" theory. Dexter had huge paws as a pup whereas Birch had tiny little proportional ones. (Very scientific evidence, I know ).

Our V was 8lbs at 8 weeks and he is now 65lbs. His paws were huge (still are). We call him The Beast.

Re: Puppy Weight at 8 Weeks Old

Thank you ALL for your input. His paws seem small, as if they're almost proportionate to his tiny self now so I'm guessing he'll be in the 45-50lb range but we'll see! Thanks again!
