My female doberman just turned 8 months and she is about 59.8 lbs now. Is this a normal size for an altered female puppy. Is she gonna be huge or an average size female?
Dobermans are a large breed dog. Anything over 50-55 lbs. is considered large breed, for a generic categorization.The food you feed doesn't change how large they will be but it does help other serious health factors threw out life. You are making it sound as it you want her to be larger look at the breed standard for dobes they are not a LARGE breed
Why is there such a stigma about dobermans being larger on this site? It's almost like you are looked down upon if you have a big doberman...
The doberman has a breed standard. Backyard breeders have bred dobermans that are advertised as BIG and GIANT to make more money. It is not true to the breed standard, and comes with increased health risks. This breed has a range for normal weights and sizes for a reason, and it needs to be respected. If someone wants a GIANT doberman, they need to focus on another breed.Why is there such a stigma about dobermans being larger on this site?
