Shiloh at a little over 8 months is now 47.4 lbs!! does anyone know when their weight starts to level off? I have heard around the 1 yr mark but not sure. Also, does anyone have any tips on how to measure height?

From what i read around 9-10 months they stop gaining weight like crazy and slow down. By about a year they should be done growing up, but up to 2 years to fill out. For measuring, i use a yard stick and a carpenters square. Loki will usually stand for me and i just use the square to his shoulders and voila. Best to do it on a hard flat surface like a hardwood floor or a driveway.

Mako weighed in at 13.9 lbs yesterday at the vet (13 weeks).  At 10 weeks he weighed 12.2. Seems to be a bit slow only gaining 1.7 lbs in 3 weeks. Anyone else have a slow grower?


Mako weighed 18.9 lbs at his vet appointment on Saturday -- 4 months and 5 days old.

He seems to be gaining about 1lb per week.

Kai weighed 55.3 lbs -- 2 years 9 months ish

Loki is at 21 weeks and 47lbs. I actually had to measure his rib cage last week and he was 26" around at the largest part, i want to say 18-19" at the withers.

Oh goodness all of these numbers make me wonder if I just have a strangely small pup. She's 19 weeks old now and was still only about 16 pounds. The vet did tell me that she is a little skinny so I'm attempting to feed her more, but around 4.5 months she does seem small for the breed.

@alesandra She is a girl Michelle so expect her to be smaller. Also my Vlad is extra large as he is from a liter of two so he started out huge. I know numerous husky girlies that are in the high 30s as adults!

@HuskyLear Okay thanks for the clarification! That's actually what I have been telling people as well based on my limited knowledge.

Yep @alesandra
Height - Dogs, 21 to 23½ inches at the withers. Bitches, 20 to 22 inches at the withers. Weight - Dogs, 45 to 60 pounds. Bitches, 35 to 50 pounds. Weight is in proportion to height. The measurements mentioned above represent the extreme height and weight limits with no preference given to either extreme.

So Bourbon at 3.5 yo is 58 pounds and 24 inches so I would assume he is considered too tall!(the black and white)

But a 30 pound girl of 20 inches is not bad at all. Sounds like that is what you are heading for.

Vet visit this morning. Mishka weighed in a whopping 67.4lbs. This is the heaviest he's been. It's time to go on a diet.

I'm back finally! Loki definitely has slowed down on the growing but since my last update was May 17, its going to seem like a lot. He is hovering around the 60 lbs mark, but has gotten much taller/longer/stronger. For 9 months old, that's pretty big for a Husky. He is still nice and lean, but we want to keep him that way.

Rorschach seems like a lightweight compared to some of the dogs here.

12 weeks - 13.8 lbs
14 weeks - 15.9 lbs
19 weeks - 21.5 lbs

I apparently rescued a runt. Some of the other males here are 10-15lbs heavier than Rorschach. He had a rough go of things though. He was abandoned at 2 months of age and had bad mange. The foster home he was in was feeding him some low grade stuff also.
He's eating good, growing nice and tall, and is pretty muscular though. Coat is looking much healthier too. Time will tell.

For those who haven't seen them, I've updated the "Weigh In" charts through Mar 2012, I'll add more on a day to day basis (if I have time?)

The charts aren't - by any definition - definitive of anything, they're simply a collection of the weights as reported by members.

Simply trying to help people who come here with "How much should my dog weigh?" by giving them a collection of dogs to compare with.

First time posting my pup's weight on here. I'm not sure what his weight was when we got him at 9 weeks. I'd have to look at his papers and they're currently in my car. I'm too lazy to go get them lol. But at 17 weeks he was 25 pounds. Friday at 19 1/2 weeks he is 30 pounds. My baby is growing fast!

I got Anouk when she was 8 weeks old, I took her to the vet 5 days after getting her. So at almost 9 weeks, she was only 5 lbs. Now, at 20 weeks, she only weighs in at 24.1 lbs. Everyone tells me she is going to be really big, but I feel like she is on the small side.

My last calculated average weight in this note for 10 female Huskies between 10 and 26 weeks is 29.5 with a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 40 pounds (big dog!) so I'd say that your girl is setting nicely within the average. Not too light and not too heavy - 'course, that said, all pups are different!

( I'm off on another project at the moment, I'll get back to Husky weights shortly ... )
