    16 wks: 28.4
    17 wks: 30.2
    18wks: 31.4
    19 wks: 32.6
    20 wks: 34.2
    21 wks: 35 pounds she has been on primal freeze dried raw chicken formula for 5 days "transitioning....1 cup Victor nutra pro als and 2-3 "cubes" of Primal chicken freeze dried.
    I've always thought she was underweight, but we have battled diarrhea and tapeworms. She always eats good and she has always gained with the exception of the first few days in her new home.
    We originally tried diy raw diet at 9 weeks, then tried Victo Nutra pro als, tried Orijen, happy howies as training treats, a sunnyside up egg every morning. Stopped the happy howies I'm guessing that was the cause for the constant diarrhea. Stopped the daily egg thinking she has an egg allergy. Wondering if its a chicken allergy, and do I need to use a different prial freeze dried formula. I have the Darwin's frozen raw....but i recently read about all the darwin recalls.
    I will definitely increase her food.

    He eats 58oz of balanced raw food a day. I feed him BARF (biologically appropriate raw food) style for his main meals. He is extremely food driven and goes nuts for it and cant concentrate a lot of the time during training if his treats are high value, so I have to give him very low value treats rather than something really smelly and yummy. So for him treats are a simple kibble). He only ever eats at most a half cup of kibble each day.

    That's about the time they slow down a lot and with Della it was when I dropped her to 2 meals per day.

    Thank you @JanS, I keep reminding myself of that as I have read many posts about it on dcf. But it took so long to get her to 50 pounds. Lol

    Although I still fret over her weight, I realize she eats, poops, pees, plays, and sleep like she is normal. So In this new year I am going to try and enjoy her more, have fun with her and stay focused on getting in as much training as I can with her to make sure she is a well rounded, Well mannered, well behaved loving pup.
    7 months on Decemeber 25 and weighed 51.8 pounds on Saturday.

    Baron, DOB 10/01/19 - 18 weeks old at time of posting this.

    All weights were used from VET visits and their scales. I've confirmed today, his weight is 40 pounds.

    8 weeks old - 16#
    9 weeks old - 19#
    12 weeks old - 25#
    13 weeks old - 31#
    15 weeks old - 33#
    16 weeks old - 36#
    17 weeks old - 38#
    18 weeks old - 40#

    Our VET suggested if you take their 4 mo. / 18 wk. weight, double it and add roughly 10% you will be pretty close to their final weight. That would put him at #88 pounds which is about the same size as his father and a few pounds heavier than his mother.

    Just had Rose at the vet. 12 wks. 21 lbs. 17 inches. Does that seem small for a female?

    They all vary a lot but it sounds pretty close for 12 weeks.

    Had Rose at the vet this am. for her last round of puppy shots. 4 months, 30.8 lbs. She gained 10 lbs. In 28 days. Not sure about her height, she seems a bit intimidated by the very scary tape measure. I'm thinking she's about 20"
