    Default How much did your lab weigh when 8 or 9 weeks old?

    Our newest addition is a little oopsie from a pure bred lab, and pure bred corgie. He weighs 7 pounds and is close to 9 weeks old. I am just curious as to whether any of you remember how much your labs weighed at the same age. Our older lab was 4 months old when we got her and she weighed about 26 pounds.

    I bought Charlie a new crate and I think it's WAY too big!! It seems to me that maybe his is going to be a little guy. After all take a look at those tiny little feet!!

    If you could remember how much they weighed and tell me how big they are now too that would be very, very helpful!

    Caleb was a smidge over 10 pounds at 8 weeks. He's on the small side for a male Lab, just at the minimum adult weight of 65 pounds. Rule of thumb is to double that cute little guy's weight when he's 4 months old and you'll have a rough idea at what his adult weight will be.

    Rhys was a peanut, 9 lbs at 9 weeks old, he was, at his most 85lbs as an adult.

    Ruby was 21lbs as a 9 weeker, and is about 85lbs as an adult.

    Gin and all my puppers at 9 weeks old were over 20lbs, except for baby Marshall who was a good 18lbs.

    Baloo was 12 pounds at nine weeks, is now 69 pounds at two years.

    Your baby will probably end up smaller than the average lab due to the corgi.

    Bali was 12 lbs, and is 95 lbs now. We don't know about Jaida, since she was a rescue. But Bali was a big boy from the getgo!

    The smallest was ~8.5 lbs but from a huge litter. NOrmally I'd guess ~15# to be the norm at 8 wks. I do not keep mine rolly polly...
