Question concerning puppys weight

1694 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Pitbull Palace
Hi all,
I am new here, so I hope I posted in the right place! I am the proud new owner to Nyla. She is a pitbull and husky mix...her mother was the pitt. I hope its okay to post since she is a mix, but she looks like a pitt with bright blue eyes. I was wondering if anyone could guess how much she would weigh. She is only 8 weeks old now and I took her to the vet and she was 2 1/2 pnds. Everybody else says their pitbulls were 12+ pnds at this age. She is healthy, but did have worms which she is being treated for. It just took me back that she weighed so much less than the average :confused:

Of course there is not a standard to how much these dogs will weigh at certain ages, especially if yours is mixed, its sort of like a mixed bag, not really sure what you'll end up with! My boys were both 5lbs at 6 weeks, and just kept gaining from there. My boy Kaos gained at a rate that was alarming to me since he seemed to be growing so much, but the vet said to keep feeding what I was feeding and that was that.
As long as the vet wasn't concerned, you shouldn't be either. Just keep and eye on her, treat her worms and feed her good quality food!
