I got him from a local breeder of partis. He is very smart and is learning so quickly!
I am wondering how big he will be full-grown...the breeder said maybe 75 pounds. His parents are medium-to-large sized. He weighs 18 lbs right now. Or can you get an idea by measuring his current height? I am just curious : )

So sweet! Yeah 18lbs is a little on the bigger side, I think :) - compared to what Olie and Suri weighed and they are 45 and 51 lbs now.

Your "little" guy is adorable - I love phantoms! And yeah, I think your breeder is probably close on his eventual size, although you can never tell....S'Murphy was 14 lbs at 8 weeks, and gained about 2lbs per week until he "topped" out at 72lbs, about 28.5 inches tall (so far). He turned one year old March 3rd. I've been told he could have another couple of growing spurts left until he's around 2. He was tied for runt of the litter at 11 oz when he was born. He's an adorable puppy, who is still discovering every day where his feet are!

he's cute - did you ever notice that spoo puppies have older looking faces> I noticed that with Ginger when she was a pup and have noticed other times looking at puppies on the forum.. Guess they are so smart that they look "older" lol

Thanks everyone, he is quite a character and we are enjoying getting to know him :)
His breeder still has one of his brothers left, but with not quite defined colors...
