9 week old american-european dobie.

Hi all,

I found this forum to be a great resource for new dobie owners so I felt it was my duty to introduce you all to PINCHO! He's my 9 week old american-european dobie. I've had dogs all my life and nothing compares to the intelligence and loyalty of this breed, even at such a young age.

Everyone thinks he's going to be massive. What do you think?

Hi! Welcome to DT from Colorado! Glad you're here.

Unfortunately your picture didn't show up. Usually the easiest way to post here is to use an online photohost like Imgur or Flickr.

We has a tutorial showing how to use Flickr:

If you're loading directly from a phone, I can't help you there. But we LOVE pictures and would love to see a few of your pup.

Hi cutie! (Pincho, not you ) I love that age, but they do grow. He'll be taking apart that rabbit before you know it.

Size? I dunno. Sometimes you have to see them in person to get an idea. How much does he weigh??

He weighed in at 17lbs this week! He was rated 5 out of 9 and my vet thought he was a big dobie!

Pincho is 'very' cute! Thx for sharing his picture. There is a chart somewhere that you says the weight at 4 months times such and such a number, maybe it was x2 will tell you his adult weight.
All of this is variable, but it comes close.

17 pounds is not particularly out of line for a 9 week old puppy. I guess it'll be a wait and see thing. The rule of thumb, once they really start growing (for the next few months, anyway) is that they will add about 10 pounds a month. His 3 month weight might tell you a little more.

Remember though (I'm not necessarily addressing this to you, but to other folks who might read this thread), you can't just feed more to make them grow bigger. Fed properly, they will grow to the size that they were meant to be; give them too much and all you'll get is a fat puppy.

Good info for sure! My vet recommended 1020 calories total per day and 3 servings. I switched him over to purina pro plan large breed puppy chow. He's getting just under 3/4 cup with a few pieces of boiled chicken, carrots, and a tbsp of chicken broth. Any thoughts? My vet gave him worm med which made him lose his appetite for a bit so we made his meals more savory.

Once you've found a good food (and Purina Pro Plan works for a lot of dobe owners), you generally don't have to add things like chicken or broth. In fact usually adding something to a dog's regular meal makes them more picky and then harder to please.

How long have you had him? Usually when you switch a food you want to take 3 weeks or so to switch over slowly—a little more of the new stuff, and less on the old every day. But sounds like he's got an appetite back, so you guys are good to go, I would think.

That is really on cutie patootie. And he's got enough bone that he'll probably beon the big side but the only to be sure is to wait until they finish growing and then you'll know.

Do you know how big the sire and dam are--that'll give you some idea of his expected size.

By the way I particularly like the picture of him sleeping in the arms of the unidentified woman. And she looks very happy having him in her arms, asleep.
