We call her "Poppy" most of the time.

The first picture is of her just after we picked her up, 8 weeks old and just over 3 lbs. I really questioned if she would reach standard size since she was so small.

Second pic is of her almost 14 weeks old, just before grooming.

Third pic is day after second pic, just after being groomed.

Fourth pic is from last night. She is nearly 4 months old, over 17 lbs and by my measurement 16 inches at the withers.

So, how big to you think she will get. I think the max size for a mini is 15 inches, so based on that she will meet the standard measurements, but I any thoughts as to what size she will be full grown?

Anything over 15" is technically a Standard. But is she stays the size she is now I'd say she's an oversized mini.

Very cute!! I love partis!

What does her pedigree look like? Is she the product of a Mini breeding or a Standard breeding or a Mini/Standard breeding?

I think she'll likely reach 20 inches or more full grown. She's only 4 months old, she still has LOTS of growing to do.

Wow she cought up well for only being 3 lbs. Mandy was always one lb less then weeks from time we brought her home 8lbs 9 weeks so on.
Anyways she is now at 2 years 32lbs so tiny but great size to pick up and snuggle
Casey was always 1 lb over week so 8 weeks he was 9 lbs and at 18 months is 55lbs approx.
Should be interesting
Wonder why she was so tiny did they forget to feed the pups or what.

I agree with Locket and as well kpoos. There is still plenty of time for growing.

What a cute face she has. At four months she's got a lot of growing to do but I bet she won't be a big standard. Never know though do we? I can't believe she only weighed 3 pounds at 8 weeks old... my little dogs that only get to be 15 or som pounds weigh more than that by that age... usualy lol.

I am still having issues with the breeder I got her from, should have went with my inital instinct, but I loved partis and got sucked in. I still have yet to get her papers, but I do have a copy of the email from AKC registering the litter and am in the process of putting togehter a request to AKC for assistance.

We LOVE Poppy and got a great pup, although small, I would not change getting her, just the breeder. I would never use her or recommend her again, not just because of the papers, Poppy's tail was very infected from being docked. Our vet suspects it was done much later than it should have been.

Again we really LOVE Poppy, especially my son, and she works well in our family. Would not trade her for the world! Although, I can't wait until those puppy teeth are gone!!!!

I agree - I love partis! And Poppy is adorable:) It is so hard to tell how big they are going to be - ours have both outgrown their "estimates"!

Humm..... My guess is that this is a Mini/Standard breeding since 3lbs at 8 weeks is about half the size of a typical Standard puppy. I think in my last litter that some of my boys were 8 lbs at 8-9 weeks.

It is hard to say how big she will end up without knowing her lines. My Sabrina line was very late maturing. At a year, Izze was only 19" and she ended up at 21". Delilah's line is very fast maturing. Most of the puppies got their full size by age 7 months and stopped growing.

If we are betting though, I'll say that she will end up 19". Is there a prize for the best guess?:)

who did you get her from? I am in the market for a parti and I think it is just as important to know who to avoid as it is to know who is a good breeder.

What an absolutely beautiful parti! I love the markings on her face. Look forward to seeing "growing up" pics of her as she matures. Will be interesting to see the height she matures at. Let's see if Cbrand wins.....LOL. I have to say, if I were a betting person, I would not bet against Cbrand. :)
