Recently got my first male standard, he is 12 weeks at 22lbs. Approximately 15inches. His mom is 45 and dad is 55. Just curious if anyone has a rough weight estimate for when he’s an adult! Thanks!

I think it's hard to predict adult weight. My boy's parents were 40 and 45 pounds. He's 60 pounds, a tall and thin version of 60.

I've seen statistics of growth rates but, much like humans, there's variability among siblings.

Just for fun, I'll throw in a few charts that usually make an appearance with these questions :)

As scooterscout99 said, there's just no real way to predict. It's not only the parents genes in play but prior generations too.


FYI, there are no weight restrictions on poodles only height so really weight doesn't have a lot to do with the poodle, unless you're dealing with external restrictions.

HEIGHT CHART FOR STANDARD POODLES


AGE IN MONTHSHEIGHT IN INCHES
8 WEEKS12 - 13 INCHES
3 MONTHS14 INCHES
4 MONTHS18-19 INCHES
6 MONTHS21+ INCHES
FULL GROWN (USUALLY 24 MONTHS)24-27 INCHES

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