Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Hi everyone! So far I am very much enjoying the wealth of information I have found on this forum. Just last week I picked up my first puppy. He's 10 weeks old and 5.4 lbs...I have compared his weight to other members who have posted about their puppies at similar ages and he seems to be very underweight. He looks very healthy and seems so be adjusting well. He eats usually 3 times a day, but sometimes doesnt finish all of his food.

Hello and welcome!
He seems a little on the small side but it shouldn't be a huge concern unless he is not eating. Based on what what I've been told by people on the forum and by my breeder, puppy weight is very variable depending on litter size, time of weaning and genetics. My little girl is a little under 7 lbs at 8 weeks. She doesn't finish all her food either. I attribute it to stress from being removed from Mom and litter mates. I had to switch her to a raw diet because the didn't seem very interested in kibble.
I'd give him a couple more weeks to see if he puts on some weight. If he has trouble gaining you may need to take him to the vet to rule out worms or some other parasite preventing him from absorbing all nutrients.
