I am new to the forum.  I have uploaded some pictures for your viewing pleasure.  I will try to get a new one.  I haven't taken any in a month.  Just want to say Hello to fellow Dobey lovers.

welcome to the forum. Where did you buy your puppy that they let her go at 5 weeks old?

It was from an individual.  We knew the parents of Dad, but Mom was a first and only time Mom.  Dad is 120 lbs, Mom is 110 lbs.  Shelbi was only one of two in the litter.  Like I said she is huge.  She has had a full set of teeth and was eating solid wetted down food since 3 weeks.  When she came to us we started feeding her solid puppy food (Science Diet).  She has not had any trouble.  As far as the 5 weeks, mom was very nervous and was out of control with the puppies.  If they whined wherever she was at she would just drop milk.  Since the puppies had already moved on from nursing not much of an issue at 5 weeks.  This is probably not normal, but she is 34 weeks old and as healthy as an ox, and almost the same size(HAHAHA)

Oh, boy. Shelbi's parents sound like Red's, and that means she will be a big girl. As I posted in the other thread, Red is 30" at the shoulder and 100 pounds, down from his peak of 147 when he was diagnosed with thyroid problems. A year and a half ago, Princess (red female, 20 months old) came into our lives and has kept him active which along with watching his kibble intake and the medicine allow us to control his weight.
