    How much did your puppy weigh at 5 or 6 months?
    We are wondering how big she is going to get. She has Huge paws but she is 30 pounds at 5 months. That doesn't seem very big for her age...

    The best predictor I have read about is the size of the bitch and father, however there is variation high and low from there. The best indicator will be to wait 6-12 more months and put her on a scale, <g>

    Please keep in mind that a proper female Lab should be around 60-65 lbs and she's on track to be close to that.

    Our vet said in general they double from 4 months.

    My Max was 34 pounds at that time. Now at 7 months he is about 55 pounds. Don't matter to me how big or small he is.

    Thank you. Her size doesn't matter to me at all. I was just wondering if there was anyway for me to tell how big she might get. I guess I will have to just be patient and wait and see!

    No kidding she has big paws! Look at the snowshoes on that little chocolate critter! Going to be a good swimmer.

    She swam the first day we brought her home. She can't get enough of the water!
