Re: Typical Weight For an Almost 6 Month Old Puppy

Looks to high up on the neck to be from a topical spot treatment. Has he had any swelling (bump) there in the past? If he has, it could be the reason for hair loss in that spot. Anytime they have quick swelling in a area, they can loose the hair in that spot. It takes a little while to grow back in, but is completely normal.

This is a photo of him looking down and if anyone could tell me what that dry patch on his neck is I would be much obliged.

Re: Typical Weight For an Almost 6 Month Old Puppy

I have the same issue. When we got him at 4mths he was skinny, he is now 5 1/2 mths and weighs 14.6 kilos. I don't know if he isn't being fed enough, like most owners I don't want to feed him too much.

If I look at the original persons post her female is 2kilos heavier and the vet says she was too light. I'm worried now!

Hawaii has strict quarantine rules for rabies and there is only one vizsla breeder in the islands that may have a litter once every 5 - 10 years. So the only options in paradise to own a vizsla is to wait for a breeding on island, wait approximately a year for a puppy to be considered rabies free from a mainland breeder, if you can find a breeder willing keep a pup that long, or import a pup at 8 - 10 weeks old from a region that does not have rabies, such as Australia, New Zealand, or the UK. There are at least six vizslas from Hubertus lines in Hawaii, as far as I know... Many others from New Zealand and other Australian breeders. This also true for most other pure breed dogs in Hawaii. As most dogs found here locally are mixed breeds, called poi dogs, that tend to be pit bull/other lineage. Pit bulls are a favorit here in the island for pig hunting. Pig hunting dogs are considered disposable, as pigs tend to destroy the dogs during the hunt... Now I'm completely off topic... Anyway, our girl Cedar was born in Kailua-Kona from two different lines of Mehagain Vizsla that came on island two and half years ago. Since the breeding, the female has been spayed as it was difficult to find homes for the pups, as the breeder was very careful not to home them to pig hunters. Pig hunters would breed the vizsla with a pit bull, as they like the speed and agility of the vizsla and the temperament of the pit bull... Sorry forum members for the off topic response... Back to the typical weights for vizsla...

FWIW, his weight may plateau very quickly. Last June (when Wilson was 8 months) he was nearly 60 lbs (so about 26-27kg). I thought for sure he was going to be one of those 70 lb + Vizslas. But, he has hovered at between 62-65 lbs, depending on how much exercise and outside time he's getting. He fattens up a bit in the winter, i think, because our day to day routine just isn't as active as it is in the summer.
Aspen just turned 1 year and is at 61 lbs - it is good to know that he may still end up within the 60-65 lbs range, as we too were thinking we may end up with one of the 70 lb Vs. It's only been in the last couple of months that he has started to fill out more and pack on muscle. Aspen's parents are both around 50 lbs, so he has well exceeded their size. Just more dog to love
Yes, Wilson has exceeded his parents too. His sire was just shy of 60 and his mom was about 50. More dog to love, I like that!

Re: Typical Weight For an Almost 6 Month Old Puppy

Cash is two and he's weighs between 61-65 lbs, he's a little skinny at the moment but he's never been more than 65 lbs. I've often wondered how much he would weigh if he had four legs - how much does a dogs leg weigh? The shoulder on his front leg is huge, but I'm not sure if that weighs as much as another leg. These are just the random things that I think about Cash.

Dharma is 8months old and is just fine weight wise I think. I feed her large breed puppy kibble too. I now give her a little bit of high quality canned food just to keep her interested and keep her from playing hockey with her kibble!
