Charles' dodgy hair cut has finally started growing our a little and his curls are coming out nicely... at the moment we have nicknamed him *frofro* to go with his cut :p He is turning into a gorgeous little poodle and I am so proud to be his mummy.
He has had his last needle and starts obedience training next week :D yay so excited!
Still finding it hard to believe he used to be even smaller then he is now... and oh how curious and smart he is getting :)

Hi and Welcome!

You've landed in a nearly 8 year dormant thread so I'd be very surprised if the OP responded.

I will help as I can :). It would be helpful to know how tall your pup is at the shoulder. Weight is not really relevant except in relation to height.

This info is for US registries. I believe the difference for the UK is that toys are up to 11" and miniatures are from 11" to 15".

There are NO weight restrictions on poodles only height so really weight doesnt have a lot to do with the poodle.Toys are 10 inches in height and under.
Miniatures are over 10 inches to 15 inches.
Standards are over 15 inches.

This by the breed standards for both AKC and UKC.
NOTE: A poodles height is measured from the ground up to the top of the withers (shoulder blades).

Toy poodles are usually finished growing in height at 6-7 months although it may take them a bit longer to fill out.


Here is another height chart for toy poodles.

Some miniature poodles will take up to 12 months to finish growing. Some will finish growing in height around 6-7 months but may take a bit longer to fill out.

Standard poodles can take up to 2 years to finish growing and filling out.






For a real life comparison, here's the records kept by a member of their small standard girl and her larger standard boy
For comparison, here are puppy weights for my Cammie (a small female - 35 pounds as an adult) and Sam (an average sized male - 50 pounds as an adult)
Cammie weight
10 weeks: 7 lbs
11 weeks: 8 lbs
12 weeks: 10 lbs
3 months: 10 lbs, 13 in
4 months: 17 lbs, 16 in 49% of adult weight.
5 months: 21 lbs, 18 in
6 months: 26 lbs, 19 in 74% of adult weight
8 months: 32 lbs, 20 in 91% of adult weight
9 months: 32 lbs, 21 in
12 months: 35 lbs, 21 in
18 months: 35 lbs, 21.5 in

Sam weight
4 weeks: 5.3 lbs
6 weeks: 7.6 lbs
8 weeks: 11.0 lbs
9 weeks: 12.3 lbs
10 weeks: 15.0 lbs
12 weeks: 18.3 lbs
4 months: 26 lbs 51% of adult weight
5 months: 32 lbs
6 months: 39 lbs 76% of adult weight
8 months: 43 lbs 84% of adult weight
12 months: 49 lbs
18 months: 51 lbs



My boys are considered miniatures. Full grown my larger boy is about 13-14" at the shoulder and about 13-14lbs. My smaller boy is about 12-13" at the shoulder and about 12-13lbs. I think they reached full height in the 7-8m range.
