How tall is he at that weight? Make sure you let him grow slow, he will still achieve maximum height, but it's better for him to grow slow

The chart posted in this topic is pretty accurate.

I was going to say that 13 lbs at 4 months is small. Aria was 20 lbs at her 4 month check up. I keep meaning to weigh her because I haven't since the. nd she is going to be 6 mo on Tuesday. I'm very curious how much she ways because she is growing like a weed

hilshaven---Sushi was 21 inches at the shoulder and 34 pounds at 17 weeks so he was probably at 30 pounds at 14 weeks. He is now 26 inches and almost 60 pounds at 11 months. Your boy is on the big side so like MaryLynn said you should try to slow is growth. How tall is he? Are you giving him high protein food or puppy food? If you are then you could change for a lower protein food. If he is not neutered already you could decide to wait until after puperty because if you do it before it could make him grow even taller.

He is about 20" already(14 weeks)...Hubby helped me measure him. He doesn't scarf his food. He often leaves some in his bowl and doesn't finish.

I will make sure we get lower protein food...we have been trying different ones, some of them on the higher protein side. I will be more vigilant and get lower protein. He is not neutered yet and we plan to wait until he is much older, if ever. Still trying to decide on that one...not that we will use him for breeding or anything as he is on a limited registration AND I do not want to add to the homeless pup situation.

Do you mind me asking: I understood it was the opposite. Perhaps I was misinformed?? I was told that not to neuter him before 10 mths because if he was neutered earlier it would stunt his growth. My boy is 26" at 7 1/2 mths and 48lbs. Is that average for a spoo?

I apologize if this is a form of hyjacking.

My understanding is that if you neuter early they do not develop in all aspects as fully as they would if not neutered or neutered after reaching adult size. I have also heard that the males tend to look more feminine when they are neutered too early and that their growth is taller and more gangly. But I am by no means any kind of expert! I am just going by what I have read and heard. Please educate me if I am wrong! :-) I am here to learn.

And I put a fairly small amount in his bowl (about 1/2-3/4 cup) with a little spoonful or two of wet food mixed in. He gets this 2-3 times a day. He does not feel over weight at all. You can easily feel his ribs.
