How Big Will My Puppy Get When He/She Is Full Grown?
This is a question we get very often, from every puppy adopting family. We never mind giving you an estimate of the range your puppy will end up weighing full grown, but it is almost impossible to tell you how many pounds your puppy will weigh full grown. The best you can do is know the weight of the dam and the sire and you will get an estimate of the puppies full grown weight, and also depending on the breed of the puppy - you can get an estimate of the puppies adult weight from that as well. We also try to take into account weights from any previous litter from the same parents. We cannot ever promise you how much your puppy will weigh full grown, however.
Also, not always, but normally - it seems that boys tend to be a little bit larger than female puppies. Some puppies are born smaller and can end up getting a growth spurt and catching up on size, or it can stay on the smaller size like it currently is.
We raise 4 different breeds of puppies currently. Mainly just the three Poo hybrids.
1. Miniature Poodle (sometimes)
4. Maltipoo (sometimes)
Below we will give you the estimated normal size of each breed that the dog will normally weigh when fully grown.
Our Miniature Poodles normally grow to be between 10 and 15 pounds full grown.
Cockapoos tend to be between 16 and 24 pounds full grown.
Cavapoos are normally 14 to 20 pounds full grown.
Maltipoo 10 to 14 pounds full grown.
As I mentioned above, there is no way we can promise you any size because I do not want you to be misled, but these are the normal ranges of each breed full grown size.
One of the most simple - yet effective ways to get a guess of puppies full grown weight - is to take their weight when they are 8 weeks old, and multiply that by 3. For example: If a puppy is 5 pounds when they are about 8 weeks old, that puppy would come close to about 15 pounds full grown if the growth of the puppy stays current based upon the puppies first 8 weeks after being born.
