Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Puppy Weight Question   Sat May 18, 2013 1:19 am

Hi there! I am extremely happy to have found this forum. My husband and I are new Husky owners and have a 9 week old, Agouti puppy by the name of Bane. He has his puppy appointment tomorrow in our new home, but I was looking to see what a good weight for him is now? He is currently weighing in at 13 pounds. I believe he was the runt of the litter, but the breeder didn't specify. We are feeding him three times a day; breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He goes for multiple walks a day and has several new doggie friends in our condo complex that we're currently renting. We feed him the Blue Buffalo Puppy dog food. Any input is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Can't really see much from those photos (he's laying down in the first one and the tall grass in the second one). All pups grow at their own rates, some are cows at certain ages and some are dainty little buggers. If he looks healthy, I'm sure he is fine.

I think he's fine, Vegeta was 12 pounds at 9 weeks and he had coccidia then. If you're worried about him being too plump or too skinny....don't. Unless you're drastically overfeeding he should be fine. Like mentioned above, they grow at different rates. Some dogs are huge early and fizzle out while some are tiny young and grow into giants, it's kind of random. Vegeta has been fairly tiny at times and rather plump at others. I've noticed the plumpness normally proceeds a "holy crap I woke up this morning and you practically doubled in size".

We took him to the vet this morning and he checked in with a clean bill of health! She said that the 12.5 - 13 pounds is perfect for his age and breed at this point and time. Thank you for all the reassurance Very Happy
