    Defaulthow much a female lab weighs

    Hello all,

    I just want to know how much an adult female lab weighs.

    My puppy now is almost 4 months old and she weighs around 7kg. How many kg's will she be when she grows up?

    Thank you.

    It is really hard to say. Depends on the size of the dog, how much you feed them, and I guess genes.

    If we all told you the weight of our dog it might give you an idea, but each dog is different so even that wont tell how much yours will weight.

    Kassa was on the lower end of the standard and weighed 28 kilos. She died at 3 and weighed 32

    Tessa is about middle of standard and has a waist so pretty good for her and she weighs around 30-32. She is a much bigger dog than Kassa.

    Erns is the same size as Tessa and weighs 26-27 kilos. We keep him thin due to his hips.

    So you see each dog is different even if they are the same size.

    eta. This might give you an idea. This is from the American Kennel club.
    Size, Proportion and Substance
    Size--The height at the withers for a dog is 22½ to 24½ inches; for a bitch is 21½ to 23½ inches. Any variance greater than ½ inch above or below these heights is a disqualification. Approximate weight of dogs and bitches in working condition: dogs 65 to 80 pounds; bitches 55 to 70 pounds.

    hard to say. because by the standard a female lab should be 55 to 70 pounds. But clearly most labs are much larger than this.

    My Nellie was 88 pounds at eight months. She is now 104 and should be about 98. She is a big girl with no fat.

    Our vet told us to double the 4 month weight and that is about what the adult weight will be. It must be, Sophie was 40lbs at 4 months and at 11 months she is 76lbs. So I figure she will level off at about 80.

    My girls are on the lighter side.
    Java is 3 and weighs 60 lbs.
    Moka is 2 and weighs 50 lbs.

    I keep them very lean though....they could definitely carry more weight.
    Java was 76 lbs, but she blew out both knees and had 2 knee surgeries, so I took weight off of her.
    Moka is just little...she's only 17" tall, so 50 lbs is perfect for her.
