I really cant stand over-weight dogs; especially when people feel a big fat dog is a loved dog.
A Blue Heeler came in today for some lumps removed and was almost 9 kilos over-weight!
I said 'wow hes a big boy!' and she was like 'yeah hes very spoilt, loves his food.'
This dog was 5 years old!
Anyway, I thought I would see how honestly we could do this
How much does your dog weigh, and what is the average for that breeds weight.
Are they under-weight, over weight or where they're meant to be.
If your dog is over-weight because of health reasons or age, that doesnt annoy me, but when a dog isnt exersized and fed too much, thats when it irritates me.
For me, Lady the 7 year old Kelpie was weighed yesterday at 16kg and the average is 11-20 kg.
Roly the 11 year old JRT weighs 6kg and the average is 6-8 kg, so he just scrapes in.
