Hello everyone.

Ruby is now 7 months old. I weighed her today, and she's 30 pounds on the dot. I don't know why I'm posting this other than to say - Isn't that remarkably small? Or am I mistaken?

She's very healthy. I wouldn't even say she's skinny. I see plenty of skinnier vizslas on here. Ruby simply looks how you might imagine a 30 pound vizsla would look. I'm just surprised she's still this small at 7 months old.

As long as she is healthy and eats a good diet, I would not worry. If her parents were smaller, then she will be too. Kiya is 11 months and goes between 38 to 40. She is healthy, muscular, strong as an ox!

There is a move to breed them "apartment sized".
I'm not too keen on the idea. A 30 pound full grown Vizsla would be a very large dachshund. Yikes.
Our Chloe is small at 42 pounds fully grown. Our boy Bailey is 60 pounds with maybe 3% body fat. 9 months is early but sound like you'll have a little one. Remember that Brittney Spaniels are very small and are great bird dogs. It's the size of their desire that's important.

We all love the pocket rockets

The Spinners ;D ;) LOL



Lean is mean and tight is right and fast muscle groups is what you want

All real sportsman chase fast twitch muscle groups in almost any sport ;)

Big Rud tad over 70 lbs all muscle Go ahead and check

He would be a Gladiator Vizsla and His Pappa a paid hunting mate 5 days a week machine Sir Boyd is about 62 lbs

Baby Willow will be closer to 49 to 50 lbs and shorter

came from Jack Daniels blood and the south west c

Your Pup looks Great

None like a slow grazer

there performance based machines with bigger hearts ;D

One a classic stand and hold pointer even on the Hinds they will lock and hold on birds

the other gets in there low and the nasty tougher work and root it out almost cat like

This is a great combo plate

and we eat it all if its real whole foods and protein ;D

These little pocket rockets are hotter than a two dollar pistol. Fast ,light on their feet, and nothing stops them in the field. Add large lung capacity and they are a pleasure to watch run.
Lucy is built that way and can put my other two to shame.
She just turn 3, and weighs in at a whopping 42 pounds in the off season. She ranges to far for hunting in heavy cover, but big open fields she's a dream.

We have a smaller girl, too. She fluctuates between 39-45 pounds depending on the scale and time of day, etc. Honestly she didn't gain much from when she was 7 months old, so I don't think you should expect your girl to get a ton bigger.

I remember when our girl was a pup and she would run around under the dining room table, I would think to myself that eventually she wouldn't be able to fit under there. Well, she still can! She definitely didn't get as big as I expected her to.

Nothing wrong with pocket rockets. And, boy, those smaller ones can definitely be rockets!

I think I need to take people more seriously when they tell me it looks like Morris is going to be a big lad, at 10 weeks he was 21 lbs, can that be right??! He doesn't seem fat, a piccy of him at 10 weeks below, and one of him more recently for comparison. Interested to hear if that's normal!

Another weigh-in on Friday, I'll be fascinated to see how much he's grown...

My boy Dax is full grown and 45 lbs. His parents were also small, but they were not meant to be in an apartment, they are both field trial champions. They were bred to be small and quick.

Normally I would have preferred it if Dax were larger, but since he has turned out to be a lap dog, 45 lbs. is big enough.

Add Gracie to the Pocket Rocket roster! Age 2, 41 pounds. I would not want her any other way. 8)

Looking back at her weight chart she was approx 31 pounds at 7 months. Many Vs do keep growing & filling out during their second year.

FWIW, people are often surprised that Gracie weighs "only" 40 pounds...I think because she has so much energy & speed she presents as a larger dog. No one has ever confused her with a dachshund! ;-)

My Ruby has always been a little one. At 2 1/2 yrs old she is 43 lbs. This is the highest weight so far. She hovers between 39-41lbs.

At that age, she was around that weight. Between ages 1 and 2 she filled out more.

I love our little speedy girl. She is so fast when playing with other dogs and can turn on a dime. Also, I can even pick her up, which she loves.

May I ask what breeder you got your pup from? Looking for a future companion for my current Vizsla.
