Post Re: How big should a 8-week old puppy be?

It depends on many things. Male puppies usually weigh more then females. It also depends on how big the litter was. If the puppy comes from a litter of 10, the puppies may be smaller then a litter of 3, or a singleton pup. Also depends on the size of the sire and dam...if the puppies are big boned, built slighter...etc. Health also plays a big part...if the puppies are wormy or have other parasites...what food they have been weaned to,etc.

In general I would say anywhere from about 10-18 lbs or so?

Why? are you worried about your puppies size?
