    Default Is my puppy big for a Boston?

    He's 2 days shy of 13 weeks and is 10lbs. He has a stocky build but he doesn't look fat at all. He was 5.9lbs at 8 weeks.

    I also have a 70lbs Boxer which he loves to play with, he looks tiny next to her. He also has two more boxer friends he gets to play with often. I think he plays ruffer than all of them lol.

    I have been feeding him Blue Buffalo Wilderness Puppy which he has been doing very well with and a cupple table spoons of innova canned puppy food mixed in to his kibble for dinner which he loves.

    http://www.bostonterrierclubofameric...-standards.htm
    Size, Proportion, Substance
    Weight is divided by classes as follows: Under 15 pounds; 15 pounds and under 20 pounds; 20 pounds and not to exceed 25 pounds.


    10lbs at 3 months, you will likely end up with a BT on the high end of the standard ^^. As long as he's proportional and not over weight then there is nothing to worry about. You Vet can tell you if the pup is a good weight.

    My boston Wero is "Small" - i mean, he is much smaller than most bostons I have seen here in Mexico and i just weighed him.... 16.5lbs! at just shy of 10months old, its amazing when people pick him up, they dont imagine him to weigh as much as a small child! ha ha... and alot of people say he needs feeding up!

    It's been found that if you take the weight at 4 months old and double it, you end up pretty close to their adult weight....

    There are a couple of weight calculators online, I too have a chunker that i wonder how large she is going to get. The calculators estimate she will be 20 lbs. http://puppygrowth.org/

    Our Vegas is almost 3 yrs old and he weighs a whopping 31 lbs! And not fat at all. He's very tall and veeeery lean. He looks huge compared to all the BTs I've seen. He was 8lbs when we got him at 3 months old.
