How much does everyone's Dobe pups weigh?

Coco is 2 days short of 19 weeks old and weighs 13.6kg at least (she was a little wiggly on the vet's weigh bridge so got readings of between 13.6kg and 14.4kg...)

Does this sound about average?

She is entirely raw fed and looks a healthy weight - I prefer to see pups on te leaner side, esp larger breeds so her ribs are easily felt, with the last 2 being slightly visible when shes running/stretched out

Wicca is 19 weeks old, but she hasn't been on a scale since the day she was 16 weeks old.  She was 14.5 kg then.

Kayenne weighed 15.7kg at 20 weeks...

 

That was about two years ago. She weighs just under 40kg now. My last Dobie weighed 14.2kg at 20 weeks, and 37.3kg at 2 years. My families' Dobe weighed about 12kg at 16 weeks. She weighs about 34kg now, at 6y/o.

I took Wicca into my vet's office to weigh her today.   She will be 20 weeks old on Friday.  She weighed 18.7 kg today.  IOW, 40 lbs.

Wow they are all much bigger/heavier than coco!! Do you know their heights by any chance? Coco is about 18" ish now

Maybe its the fact we're in different countries so the type/breeding is different?

Can you contact Cocos' breeder and ask about estimated height/ideal weight?

My families Dobie is a pretty good height/weight (80 pounds and 27-28inches), but both of my own Dobes (Kay and my male) were pretty large...Kay's 29 1/2 inches at the shoulder and my boy was 28 1/2 inches. All three of the Dobes were from different breeders, different lines...

It might be better if you just ask Cocos' breeder for an estimated height/weight, if you can.

ETA: Sorry, I don't remember how tall Kay was at 20 weeks. I just remember measuring her, LOL.

She's beautiful :)

Her 'breeders' won't answer any calls :/ I've been trying to call them on behalf of my sister as she is moving house and wanted them to know her new address but both their phones aren't answered!

Her sire was huge, biggest dobermann I've seen here - he almost came up to my bum at his wither and I'm 5'8"! Her dam was probably a good 4" smaller than him and I have no idea of their weight
