Thanks 4Dog!

I spoke to the breeders & they were very nice. They answered all our questions & said he should mature out around 240 - 250. She did say he was small for his size, but that he should grow up well.

I of course didn't question his being  8 lbs until I saw the weights of other pups on the MBs & the posters who have pups weighing in at 14 -15 lbs at 8 weeks & saying theirs were small! Yikes. My little guy is half again smaller. But he makes up for it in cuteness. lol.

Also, I apologize if I posted in the wrong thread. I thought it would be OK since others had posted questions about their pups/dogs' weights. Please bear with me as I am still learning!

Cariston if it's Mystery Mtn you can't go by any averages in my experience.

 I knew Libby has been gaining weight, but we weighed Monday and she has finally made it almost to 150 lol! That means she has gained 20 pounds this month!

So . . .

13 month old Terror-Puppy (Libby) 148.3
16 month old Kaia                       155.1
last but not least Sunny               150.5 at 31 months.

The kicker is that Libby is an honest 33" at the shoulder . . . maybe more like 34-35" at the butt lol!

PS Cariston-Libby is Mystery Mtn.

I think Cassi is still on the small side.  At her vet visit a couple of weeks ago at 16 months old she was 110.  She's REALLY tall.  I've never measured exactly how tall, where do you measure?  The vet said that she seemed to be at an ideal weight right now.  She was telling me that you don't want your mastiff to get overweight because it is bad on their joints and stuff.  I don't need another dog with a cruciate surgery, believe me it's VERY expensive.

Goliath my mastiff mutt weighed in at 40 pounds at 4 months.  The vet expects him to be around 100 pounds full grown.  She said he was the smallest one out of the liter, but when they all came in for their last round of shots, he was the bigest.

My ten month female mastiff MAY weigh 80 lbs on a good day. It seems she was coinciding with the chart up until about 5 months. There has not been much growth from 6-10 months. Is this normal? However, I put her training collar on this past wednesday and it did not fit! I had to put two extra prongs on , which encourages me that she is growing. I am concerned with feeding as well. When she was a puppy 3-5 months my vet instructed me to feed her twice a day, with two cups each time. I bumped it up because she always seemd hungry to about 2cups a feeding four times a day. I am scared she was underfed and this is the cause of her size? Her Mom is 140lbs, and her dad is a peanut at 150 lbs so I know she will not be huge. My vet is very pleased with her weight and says she is just a small Mastiff.   Any thoughts?

Can we really have weight charts? Are these just generalizations? I have had big pups grow up to be average size dogs, and small pups grow large , and like other people have said here that some lines grow slower. I have a year old boy who weighs 160lbs , and a 9 month old who weighs 170lbs, it will be interesting to see how they fill out in the end.

Oooh yipee!!  I can join in on this one.  The other day I weight Crush and Cameron at 16 weeks.  Crush was 55 and Cameron was 58.  Angie, that's a nice weight on Ernie.  You should post some recent pics of the tiny little guy - LOL!

Angie,

I agree with everything you said, I think this weight chart is a basic guideline. If someone does have an 8 week old pup who weighs 8 pounds and doesn't have a breeder standing behind them for guidance, at least that person can look here and say wait a minute, maybe I should take my pup in for a checkup.

Ankie- 1Kg=2.2 pounds.

I'm glad I read through this entire thread.  When I first saw the chart, I admit, I was a little disappointed that my guy isn't anywhere near where he should be.  I was feeling quite proud of Domi's weight gain, satisfied that the little spitfire is thriving and growing at a nice pace.  Like most though, I can't wait to see him reach his potential (though I admit I adore having him still fit on my lap).

We got him at 8 weeks.  He weighed 16.8lbs.  He was just weighed yesterday and at 11 weeks, he weighs 23.6lbs.  Guess by "pet quality" they mean smaller than standard?

33.5" for ages.  Hes just getting wider. Plenty big. The moose slipped his left foot off the ramp loading him at the vet and I had to lift his whole rear back on. He feels like a ton.

Clinton that's a perfect height. He is going to be awesome when he finishes growing. He's well on his way.

Hey Clinton, we need to teach you how to lift that rear end! Unless a dog is severely injuried/still under the effects of anethesia, you shouldn't be lifting more then the weight of a gallon of milk, at the most. I don't like ramps. I know some people swear by them, but one of those "not for me" items. Homer as you know does not live with me. I only have him once in a great while. If I have to load him into the "back" of my one ton van, he puts his front feet up for me, and I lift his butt up. He well outweighs me (he's 2.3x my weight), and I put in more effort to lift that gallon of milk I referenced. I did this with all of my dogs. Even Honour and Tribute are doing this now. The only exceptions with the pups is they aren't smart enough to come out the side door of my Expedition with the second row seat flipped up, so I unload them from the rear, two people (usually the girls).

No Lola, it just means he is small right now! My girl is about 20 lbs under the chart for her weight. A few of the pups from her litter are over the chart and some are under. I'd rather have a pup under than over as long as they are the proper weight for there size.

I weighed Rhea on Monday and she is 37.5lbs at 15 weeks.  Last monday she weighed 33.5lbs.  so that's 4lbs up.  I think she still looks pretty thin.  I'm feeding her 6 cups of food a day.  Is that too much?  I just started feeding her that much yesterday.  Before that it was 5cups for a week and a half.  She's getting soooo tall though.

I dont think 6 cups is too much.  Just go by her body condition.  She will need more during growth spurts and less during lulls.  Some mastiffs will self regulate their food intake based on their needs and some are pigs and must be limited.

Haha she falls into the pig category.  You cant count her ribs anymore when she stands in front of you, so that's good.  I think I'm cutting her back to 5.5 cups since her ribs and hip bones aren't showing anymore.
