My pup Cooper is 14 weeks old, and more perfect than I'd hoped! Overall, we are doing great together. Both myself and our vet are pretty surprised about about his size though. He's 14 weeks and over 33lbs, and actually a little underweight so he has the frame of a pup closer to upper 30s.

This seems quite large, no? Has anyone else had a pup this size? If not, How big was your "normal" pup at this age? How large did they grow? I was expecting a big boy by his paw size but he's growing SO fast!

if you google vizsla growth or size chart, you will find a curve graph. My puppy is 17wk with ~30lb weight. I remembered that my pup is around 20~25lb at 14wk age. Yours is supper big for a vizsla!

Cooper is a very big pup. Big Rafa, with large paws, was only 25 pounds at that age and he has grown to be a 70 pounds adult, with I'm told his larger European Vizsla line frame, so for Cooper to be 33 lbs and with a smaller US Vizsla line frame he is going to be at the top of the scale if he continues on that projection.

Rafa has a brother called Cairo who was twice Rafa's size at 9 weeks when we went to view him. I would love to know how big he grew!

Do you have some puppy pictures of Cooper to share please? We all like to see them and they grow so fast so take as many photos as you can whilst they are small.

On this thread near the start, you will see a Vizlsa puppy growth chart for another pup, always interesting to compare, but there are a wide range of weights and sizes for the breed as well as male and female size differences and the EU/US blood lines I mentioned before.

Thanks for the link! I'm beginning to think my little big guy might be around 80lbs when all is said and done.

It's funny, a long while ago one of the original traits (besides literally everything) I liked about the Vizsla was the size, as I'd wanted a female and felt 50lbs was the perfect size dog. Now here I am with this big boy and actually excited he may be uniquely large 🤣

Here's a few pics, some recent some less so
