    Default Who else has a runt?

    Kal-El just turned one, and he's the same size as he was at 6 mos. I got the feeling he isnt getting any bigger. He's only about 15 lbs, lean, and skinny.. Harvey is 30 lbs, and built like a tank. Who else has a smaller Boston?

    I don't know if Dexter is going to be as small but his dad is 13 lbs. He is kind of short too, Dex's mom is 20 lbs and about as tall as a Boston can get! Dexter is 6.5 lbs. right now at 10 weeks old, he was the second smallest in the litter.

    Emma is around 9 months and 13 lbs. There are 3 sizes of Bostons if i am correct. Under 15 lbs, 15-20 lbs and 20-25 lbs. Something like that. Emmas parents were 14 and 16 lbs. I love her cute, small and cuddly.

    Gizmo was the runt of the litter. She weighs around 10 lbs. Rene got her because she always pulls for the runt... I'm so glad she did. Giz will put her brother in his place, and he's alot bigger. (renes' brother has Gizmos' brother)
    I Love You Gizmo!

    Oogy is nearly a year and is 16 lbs. He was the runt in the litter. He is still a bit too lean for his size so he can stand to gain a couple pounds yet.

    Minnie was the runt of the litter, at 8 weeks 2.5 lbs. At 14 weeks 4.8 lbs. Vet said she will be small. I don't think she realizes that though

    My Sheva is the runt as well. At 4 months she was 4.8 lbs and she will be 5 months next week and she might be 6 to 7 lbs. I am happy she is going to be on the small side. It's funny how fast they grow! She's getting longer but not wider

    Opie was the ONLY pup in the litter. He was an "accident." At 2, he is just under 15 pounds and about the same size as his parents. His mother was a show dog - competing in the under 15 pound category.

    Rosie, Sally's mom is 14lbs and her dad Elvis is 17lbs, im guessing she will be her moms size. Kal-El is fine, as long as he is healthy thats all that matters.

    Sally is Septembers Cutest Dog!
