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!
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.
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.
