I know I have lots of questions, and I here I am with another one!!  LOL

Okay, so Niko got his stitches out yesterday from his ear cropping.  They weighed him, and he is currently 30.2 lbs.  He will be 13 weeks old on Wednesday.  What I was wondering is, is it just me thinking this or is he actually kinda large for his age?  He is 18 1/2" tall at his shoulder and 19" long from chest to tail.  He's very healthy, so no concerns there, but I was just curious about his size. 

He was the largest pup in his litter, so maybe that's just all it is...he's a little piggy!!

I guess I'm just wondering if I'm going to have a giant for a dog?!?  LOL

I'll post some pics soon, I think he's the most handsome boy!!

10lbs per month is the average up until about 7 months...you're dog is right there, not big not small.

Hi Im new to the forum, we have a 8 1/2 week old female black and tan, she is half european and half american breed. At 8 weeks, she weighed 11 lbs, her mother was 80 lbs, and dad was a little over 100. Is she growing at good speed? About how big will she be? Thanks!

 My Dobe is 14 weeks, she weighs 37.8 lbs as of today. I was also wondering if Athena was growing too fast! Looks like your Niko is right about where mine is. :)

And to kevinrgrubb, My dobe was exactly 11lbs at 8 weeks. I keep a height and weight chart, and write everything down every 2-4 days. It's AMAZING how fast they grow.
