Puppy Zeus (32 weeks old) is now 58.4 lbs. at 25" tall, so I'm not sure if I will qualify for this group. But, I'd love to know what everyone's heavyweight Dood weighed at 7 months of age and the current weight/age. I'm anxious to see everyone's replies. :0)
I adopted JD at 14 months old, so I don't know what he weighed at 7 months. But at 14 months, he weighed 65 lbs, and a year later he weighed 80 lbs, which is the right weight for his frame. (He actually continued gaining and hit 90 lbs when he was 5 years old, at which point we took steps to bring his weight back down to 80.)
Even after they've reached their full skeletal growth, usually between 8-12 months, they still continue to gain lean mass- muscle and bone- so I'm pretty sure your Zeus is going to qualify for this group by the time he's full grown.
Wow, that's amazing! I didn't realize there could be such a growth spurt past 1 year. Zeus is still boney and scrawny-looking, so he has a lot of filling-out to do. Thanks for sharing! Gosh, JD is a big boy! I love it!
That's really interesting on their size difference as adults, seeing how they were only 5 lbs. apart at 29 weeks. Have they both eaten the same food and amounts since pups? Just wondering if their size difference is in the food or the genes of their parents.
Helios is right at 65 pounds on his 7 month birthday.
Sounds to me like he will make the Heavyweights group. The "double the 4 month weight and add a little" is really pretty accurate. And Zeus just looks like a big dog (maybe it's the name).
