Layla seems like she has stopped growing. She hasn't gained any weight in the past two weeks.

Assuming I measured right at the withers she is 17inchs. She seems so short?


She is 5 1/2 monthes old. 32 lbs.

Remy is 18 1/2 inches and 40 lbs at 5 months. I was kinda wondering the same thing. Her mom parents weighed about 85 lbs. She seems to be gaining weight, but her height concerns me sometimes. I think a big part of it is that I'm here everyday to see her. Its hard to notice growth going by a day to day basis.

I know! I will have pics soon! I just can't wait for her to grow....I should enjoy the puppy stages while they last.

I remeasured.

15 inchs at the withers (this is accurate)
8 inches across the chest (maybe a little off)
14 inches long (may be a little off)

I think once they hit about 4-5 months the growth slows down, and instead of a constant rate, they have spurts. When Thrall hit that age I remember thinking he was so small, he still slept in the crate that my pug uses now, then one day I noticed he was huge! lol

thats very well put. my pups sire didnt "bulk" up til around a year and a half, and every dog is different. However, genetics to affect it, but the quality of life will affect it more (what you feed, how much excersise (sp?)). Overall i would just enjoy her being a little shin high furball.. Cuz she won't be like that in a few months!
