Default Breeding Sizes

My female weighs 4.5 and has a petite build. I was wondering how much smaller should the stud be? I have came across a couple of 4lb studs I like but I don't want to risk having too big pups getting stuck in the birth canal so I'm a little skiddish about that.............

I wouldn't use a male that was any larger than 3.5lbs. You want the male to be at least 1lb smaller than your female, at the very least.

I would use a male that was 3 - 3 1/2 pounds.

I have a 3 lb stud and I use him on my 4lb and 5lb females. Another thing to consider when breeding is how big are the parents of the stud dog? How big are her parents. I have found a dog can be small but still produce larger pups than what you want because he/she was actually the runt of the litter but has bigger siblings and bigger dogs in the background. When I went looking for a male pup for a stud dog, I looked at the other litter mates, the parents and also the grandparents if they were there.

This is very true finding a small stud will not gaurantee small pups you must know the peidgrees within the past 4-5 generations on both sides
