Bodhi's growth rate slowed down at about 8 months and stabilized at 12 months. He seems to be having another growth spurt around 22 months.
I have a 5-month-old Mehagian male named Cash. He's on the smaller side and will probably end up in the 40-50 lb range.

How is Cedar doing? I've only heard good things about Mehagian Vizslas, which isn't a surprise knowing Marge Mehagian has been involved with the breed for over 50 years!

Rudy's a Gladiator V and coming in at 72 lbs and packing muscles like a mac truck

Baby Willow will be shorter and much lighter she will be the take out the Ground wars Girls thrill killers and getting nasty with the Rose Hips and such

Looking through the pictures, he looks fine. You can see some rib but he looks healthy. Mine always went through that leggy stage around that age.

Re: 5 month old size

Yes, he could just be a small guy. You could try asking your breeder how the other males in the litter measure up. If he doesn't LOOK skinny, I probably would not worry about it too much. However, I don't think you can go wrong with letting him eat as much as he wants for the first six months.

Oh and post some pictures of him... Vizsla puppies are too cite!

No, can't really see his ribs, but going by all of the measurements everyone has given, I think he's a runt. He's really short and petite.

Re: 5 month old size

Oh, well at 11 weeks and 15 lbs Kobi looked anorexic. In fact, he still does look a bit anorexic! Can you see his ribs when he is standing? My breeder said you shouldn't be able to see them when they're standing but you should be able to when they're turning/moving. However I can still see Kobi's ribs, he only pigs out on food if it's people food. He gets as much kibble as he wants though!

Re: 5 month old size

I feel so bad now. He really isn't skinny. He looks like a fat sausage with legs! But I'm going to give him more. I do supplement with healthy snacks too.

Like I said, I don't think a puppy is going to get fat. At first I was feeding my puppy 1/2 cup 3 x a day per the bag's recommendations. I stepped that up to 1 1/2 cup three times a day. So 3x as much food as I had been feeding him! At first he would eat absolutely everything then want more. Once he got used to that amount of food, he gradually ate less and less as he stopped growing so fast.

Just my opinion, but I don't think you're feeding Riley enough. Feed him til he won't eat any more!
