I have a mini puppy, 3 months old and wondering how to find out what she should weigh at this age. Thinking she will be between 14 - 15 pounds as an adult. Thanks, Yellow

There is no way to know what she "should" weigh. Probably somewhere around 6-6.5 lbs I would guess if that's going to be her final weight. But minis range in adult weight from 8 lbs to 18 lbs so there's a lot of variation. As long as her body condition is good she is healthy. You should be able to feel the ribs but with a thin layer of fat over them.

Here is my mini girl Lacey’s weight progression as of right now. She’s almost 1 year old so will probably get slightly heavier than she is now. She’s a small mini and the breeder guessed that she would end up at 10-12 lb at maturity. Hope that helps!

I bought my mini boy Beau when he was about 3 1/2 almost 4 months old, and at his post-purchase vet exam 9 days later he weighed just about 9lbs. He is now 8 months old, and is around 15in tall and at last weigh in (2 weeks ago) he was 15.5lbs.

And as a bonus, the height chart courtesy of Arpeggio Poodles website:

I dont hold a lot of stock in the size charts for poodles out there but I have gotten so many requests for them I decided to post some of the better ones here.
Remember though, there are NO weight restrictions on poodles only height so really weight doesnt have a lot to do with the poodle.

Toys are 10 inches in height and under.
Miniatures are over 10 inches to 15 inches.
Standards are over 15 inches. This by the breed standards for both AKC and UKC.

NOTE: A poodles height is measured from the ground up to the top of the withers (shoulder blades).

Toy poodles are usually finished growing in height at 6-7 months although it may take them a bit longer to fill out.

Here is another height chart for toy poodles.

Some miniature poodles will take up to 12 months to finish growing. Some will finish growing in height around 6-7 months but may take a bit longer to fill out.
