Is my doberman puppy underweight?

    I got a female dobie recently, she will be 10 weeks old next Tuesday. She weighed in 12 pounds at the vet and they didn’t say anything. Does this sound normal or underweight? She eats a lot so that’s not a problem. What are your thoughts? I’m new to owning a Doberman.

    That sounds kind of little (to me). If she's smaller in stature, she'll obviously weigh less.
    Example: My last litter at 8 wks ranged from 12.7 to 19.7 lbs

    Can you post a picture of her?

    Here are some photos! She doesn’t look super skinny just is light in weight. Does she look small?

    Cute pup...so peaceful....you will probably have more visits with the vet upcoming resulting in more weigh in’s .....just encourage doc to express an opinion.

    She doesn't look skinny at all and she doesn't really look small. Looks like an average 10 wk old puppy! SOOOOO CUTE!!

    I think she looks just fine. I never worry about pups as along as they are eating, playing and otherwise acting normal. Puppies grow in such leaps and bounds that what might skinny today, is the fat cat tomorrow. It's not unheard of for the runt of the litter to turn out to be the biggest of the bunch.
