How long will she stay like this.

Leah's 8 months old. and of all the puppies in the litter she was the smallest. i only see one other puppy on a daily basis and she is Twice the size of leah in hight but leah is built more than her shes just small. in the past month or two i havent noticed a change nor has my neighbor across the street. my friend the guy i got her from said her dad was a runt of the litter to. is it normal for them not to grow much at one point then get a bit growth spurt?

and shes really not putting on any weight at all. shes in the 35-40lb zone. she eats in the morning (half a bowl) and the other half in the afternoon when i get home from school. and sometimes she will eat another half before bed right before i take her out again so she eats 2 times sometimes 3 a day her sister was always 3-5lbs ahead of her but she and all the other puppies were always taller.

If your pup was from an outcross, skatterbred or dual sired breeding size differences tend to be more apparent because different lines will grow at different rates. Making the litter not as consistent as a line or inbreeding would be
And, yes, even in a linebreeding can have pups can pop out different sizes.
It is all in the game of genetics.

She may be a late bloomer or it just may be that she will be a smaller dog.

Environmental factors such as overall health, parasites etc play a part as well as the nutrition.

scottronics01 will become famous soon enough
My female Lola was the runt of her liter, I only see one of her liter mates, her sister, who was the biggest of the liter. Lola was small as a pup and i dint know how big she would be but now at a little under a 1 1/2 she is about 52lbs and she is a little shorter then her sister but she is thicker and twice as strong as her. You can never really tell what the end resault will be it is all a waiting game. I wouldnt worry about her she will catch-up at some point and if she doesnt it is nice to have a smaller dog sometimes.

similar to me. but i was just wondering cause shes getting much older and still looks like a puppy with all her wrinkles and so much more skin to fill. i guess next months should be the big change

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Chalice was almost 14months when she started to fill out. Then she got really muscular. She is 20months old now and looks really good. Leah is still a puppy. I wish Chalice still had her wrinkles.
