hi there,
can any1 help??
the new owners of my puppies are asking what weight they will make when they are older.
i know there is no definate way of knowing this, but has any1 got any tips on this.
i know people say that at 12 weeks if the puppy is a pound, double it and add 1 and this should be the overall weight. so the weight would be 3 poound ish.
any help would be appreciated.
tallulah weighs around 5 (maybe a bit less)
and william weighs 3Ib 11 ounce.
thanx

Hope that helps x

In the chihuahuas questions bit there is a sticky which is a weight chart which can give you a rough idea to.

Hope pups are doing well x

I was told that Jake would make around 5 1/2 lb according to his weight at 12 weeks using the theory of double and add a 1lb, he is now 8 months old and weighs 7lb..

The guide is good but not definate..

Its never a garauntee but it seems to make people happy when there is a estimate adult weight.

Here is a good chart site http://members.shaw.ca/crystaljems/weight.htm that has the chart in ounces, pounds and grams.
