Question Full Grown Size?

My standard poodle pup Dude is 4 months old. We took him to the vet a few days ago and found out he weighs 13.5 lbs. I was wondering if anyone has a spoo who weighed about this much at his age?

I am just so curious about how big he is going to end up.

The receptionist, nurse guy, and vet all said something along the lines of "Oh my, he is going to be a big guy!" but I'm not so sure since he was definitely the runt of his litter.

Also I am wondering at what age he will stop growing so much. I swear lately every time I look at him he is a little bigger haha.

Are you sure he is only 13.5 pounds at 4 months? That sounds extremely small for a standard poodle. Cammie is a small standard poodle, and she was 17 pounds at 4 months. Here's her growth history.

3 months: 10 lbs, 13 in
4 months: 17 lbs, 16 in
5 months: 21 lbs, 18 in
6 months: 26 lbs, 19 in
8 months: 32 lbs, 20 in
9 months: 32 lbs, 21 in
12 months: 35 lbs, 21 in
18 months: 35 lbs, 21.5 in

That does seem kind of small to me also. My standard girl was about 22 pounds at 4 months. At ten months, she's going on 45 pounds.

My boy was 30 pounds at 4 months old, but he is a slim build. I wonder if you transposed your weight- 31.5 pounds, not 13? Puppies can get fat, too. It is a better predictor of size to go by the height, not the weight.

Measure him to the shoulder and weigh him. Use this chart. It is fairly accurate, although my boy has slowed down growing a whole lot in the last month. It predicts he'll be around 50 pounds and 26 inches tall as an adult now. He's 6 months old now and just over 23 inches tall and around 40 pounds. I thought he was going to be HUGE, but he's slowed down so much now I think he'll be just a touch over average for a male.



weightX100 divided by the chart percentage
heightX100 divided by the chart percentage

I can't find my growth chart I made, but I think at 4 months we were around 20-25 pounds here.

At almost 6 months we're at 35lbs.

Nope, he is actually 13.5 lbs believe it or not...

I measured to his shoulders, and he is at about 16in. According to that chart he would be about 22 in tall and about 34 lbs full grown.

I guess he will just be one of the smallest standards around! He was pretty skinny when we got him, but hopefully we can fatten him up.

Thanks for the info.

He'll be like Bonnie! Bonnie is 37 pounds and a hair under 22 inches full grown. Yours will be a small standard poodle. Maybe the people at the vets thought he was a mini or something.

Here she is so you can see her size (it's a great size!). I actually love the small standard size. She even fits in a lap- barely.
Bonnie's on the right in this picture. That's my sister in laws little guy on the left (he's 17.5 inches tall):

I have a smaller Spoo. 22" & 37-38lbs. I have actually put on 5lbs in 2 years of owning him. We got him out of rescue so already full grown but a great size for us & now we have just been going smaller & smaller.
