My new puppy is 15 wks old and 30 lbs. He just seems huge to me. I don't know anything about the parents. Any guesses on how big he will get?
Spicoli weighed 29.7 pounds at his last appointment and he was just shy of 16 weeks so that sounds right to me.
We are expecting him to be a big boy. He comes from lines known for larger spoos on both sides. Currently he is right at 20 inches at the shoulder. His dam was 27 inches and his sire was pushing 28 inches. We are expecting him to be in the same range but that is just a guess. This topic really interest me.
I specifically wanted a larger spoo so I hope he ends up tall. Not big so much as tall. I just personally like tall dogs no real reason why.
I would guess that your boy will be a bigger spoo at that weight paired with that age but I am no expert. LOL!
I sure hope that formula is accurate!!Hey I found this tid-bit of info maybe it will help. Don't know how true it is but it is worth a looksy.
Puppies grow quickly within the first six months of their lives, gaining most of their height during that time. They continue to get just a bit bigger over the next six to 14 months and should be close to, if not at, their adult height by the time they are a year old. This is because their growth plates start to close around the six-month mark and should be fully closed after a year to 14 months. A fairly accurate calculation you can do to predict an adult height for your puppy is to multiply her height at six months by 100 and divide that answer by 75. For example, a puppy who is 8 inches at the shoulder when she is 6 months old should be between 10.5 and 11 inches at the shoulder when she is finished growing.
Yes, it is. She was just a tiny bit bigger than Rollie. But her breeder has smaller spoos with the females averaging about 18"-22" and the males up to 24". Sometime my mom and I joke that her brother Racer stole her height and body mass as he is several inches taller and aways so much more plump.10 lbs at 15 weeks is tiny! My standard poodle puppies at 8 weeks right now range from 8.5-11 lbs.
I've been using this calculator and it's been consistent since Peggy's 12th week or so:Hello all,
Xerxes (he is an standard poodle) is 24 pounds at 14 weeks. I’m trying to figure out how big he will get at full growth? You think he will be above 50?
