    DefaultMy pub is 6 months old and weighs 59 lbs! (Updated with Pics! )

    I weighed Spot yesterday and he is 59 lbs! I am worried that he grows too fast and is a bit too heavy for his age.

    He gets 2 cups of kibbles a day plus treats (carrots, apples). I honestly don't think he is 'fat', but I will try taking a picture of him and post it later.

    I know labs come in various sizes. But I am just curious how much your pub weighed at that age?

    ETA - I took these pictures tonight. Do you think Spot is overweight?

    Sonya was 45#, ~19.25" at the withers at 6mos. But that's a girl for you. Spot is probably not out of the realm at 59 for a male. Need to look at the parents too. Sonya's mom is 60# & 21.5" tall, dad (in ideal working weight, MH) was ~70#, 23.5" tall. They showed him at 80# though. -Anne

    I think Riley was around 65 at that age. His parents are big though...90 and 75. Now, at just under 9 months, he weighs in the low 70s.

    Maverick is 7 years and 70 pounds.

    Gabby is 10 months (female), and 68 pounds.

    You want to keep them on the light side- heavier equals all sorts of problems- joint, skeletal, etc.

    Please do post a picture

    It is hard to say from those pictures. You need one from above ideally. Can you feel his ribs? if you can feel them easily he is probably ok.

    I don't think 59lbs at 6 months is unusual. You may find that he has done the bulk of his growing now and he slows down. Either that or he might just be a big boy.

    He kinda appears a little chunky...but those pictures are hard to tell.

    You have a very nice looking boy there!! He looks like he's at a fine weight to me. What food are feeding that he's only eating 2 cups a day??
