Could someone give me a average or mean weight for a 8 wk old male puppy?
I'd agree with these numbers - although for the boys I'd say that the 60 pounds could be hit by 5 months if they are a well boned boy. 75 pounds by 6 months and from 90 to 100 pounds max by 15 to 18 months for a well boned boy in good show weight. Someone posted about a 118 pound male - that dog would not have been in standard unless it was grossly overweight. I can tell you that at 8 weeks and 20 pounds this is the biggest/oldest they can be and still fit (mostly) into the largest size of Sherpa bag to fly "in cabin" with you - any bigger (older) than that and you will not get them in. I did a 12 hour marathon flight this spring with an 8 week 20 pound male and by the last leg of the journey I would have sworn that he had grown some more in transit as it was all I could do to get him in that bag for the last flight!Average......
2 months 20 pounds
3 months 30 pounds
4 months 40 pounds
5 months 50 pounds
6 months 60 pounds
and after that if it is a female of standard size....they will slow down, if it is a BIG male...they continue to grow for a couple of more months, and then slow down and broaden.
Petey was only 20 pounds at 10 weeks, and at 7 months 76 pounds. He is expected to be around 100 pounds according to his breeder.
