I have a lovely poodle called Rusty.

I was told that his mum is a toy (I met her, what a sweetie) and his father a miniature ... Both black.

He is huge! Well he is compared to a lot of minis I have read about on here.

He came to us at 12 weeks old. I was impressed with his relaxed attitude to life.

He bonded well with my other two dogs, Jojo labrador and Tass collie (rip).

I recently bought harnesses for him and Jojo.

I am amazed at the rapidity of his growth.

07.06.2021 3.5kg ie 7.7lbs
13.06.2021 4.2kg ie 9.2lbs
06.07.2021 4.9kg ie 10.8lbs
02.08.2021 5.95kg 13.0lbs

He was born 10.02.2021.

Rusty is such a cutie and it’s lovely to see him bonded with his fur siblings.

They grow very quickly don’t they? My minipoo, Theo, is about one month ahead of Rusty at 7 months. He was slightly heavier than Rusty. He’s now 15.5 pounds and might be an oversized minipoo. Both his parents are minipoos with AKC championship so they both had to be between 10” and just under 15”. I met his mother and grandmother and both must have been slightly under 15”. I’m thrilled because this is the size I had hoped for. I think he’s probably finished growing in height but I’m not sure. Time will tell. Minipoos can finish growing anywhere between 7 months to a year.

You never know what size they will be. When you see the size of the parents you get a good estimate but there’s no guarantee and it’s not unheard of a puppy ending up being far larger or smaller than the parents. One of the parents of your dog has a herding dog as it’s parent because of your dog’s merle siblings. Between the herding dog as well as a miniature and toy mix your puppy has a lot of different influences for size. Rusty has clearly outgrown his tpoo mum.

He’s growing into a lovely furkid.

He is growing well, not weighed him for a bit. Have a labrador staying for a couple of nights which Rusty LOVED. He cried outside the bedroom door where labrador was having down time with his handler (one of my tennants is a dog trainer).

Rusty rolled on his back a lot and was very eager to follow his new friend everywhere!

Jojo was very laid back and did a lot of snoozing!
