I have four fluffs and the biggest is just 5lbs. The others rang from 3 1/2 to 4 1/2.

My Isabella was a whopping 9.2 oz at birth. If you look at growth charts she is off the chart and you'd wonder, "What size will she be if she keeps growing at this pace?". Our breeder said she was 1 1/2 to 2 times the size as a pup of their usual litters. There are many reasons why she was a big pup. Her mom, dad, grandmother, and aunt are no more than 4 1/2 to 5 lbs. She is 15 weeks tomorrow and she now weighs a bit less than 3 lbs. What will she max out at? We will see. As long as your little one is perky, healthy and happy I wouldn't worry. Just let nature take it's course. Enjoy the journey.

I have the black Kwigy Bo Luxe and love it! I get more compliments on my "purse" and have snuck Cozette into many places without people knowing it. She is just a bit over three pounds at 2 years of age.

It's true that you can't tell how big they will get until they are done growing. Pippa was very tiny and tracking to be about 3.5 to 4 lbs, and she is a bit over 5 now! I'd specifically wanted a smaller one so she could play with Cozette and not injure her hip that had been operated on, but they do just great regardless of Pippa growing a bit bigger than I'd expected.

I like the idea of the bell on the collar! Cozette can get under my feet when I'm not expecting it, and I worry I'll trip over her and hurt either her or myself!

Hey everyone!
we just got back from the vets office for his pre-neuter appointment. Max is 6.5 months old and weighs a little over 3 pounds. So he is still really small. The chart so far is pretty accurate, as in he is staying within the small size for predicting his final adult weight. I feel he will probably end up just under 4 pds or so. Which would be a great size for me. He is so easy to carry around and take places!

Zoe at 6 months was 3.5 lbs. Now full grown is 5.2 lbs. I do weigh her occasionally on a digital scale.

If Max hasn't had the Bile Acids Test w/the vet, please request it be done---just to be on the safe side. All pups need this as a base-line, esp. the small ones, and many vets do not do it. If anything comes up later then you have that to look back at---truly worth the money.

My little Bella had a check up and the vetranarian said she is 4 lbs. and 5.2 inches she is 3 months old. The vet said she is healthy but here in Bulgaria people dont know much about her breed so he couldnt tell me if it is normal for het to be that big at that age, he said toy breeds grow up to 7 or 8 months so it will be normal for her to be almost full size now....
reading on how tiny your baby's are I am kinda concern about her is it normal?
