Thread: How Big Should My Pup Be?

  1. #1

    Question How Big Should My Pup Be?

    hi i have just today bought home my staffy x( parents staffy and staffy x) pup who is 4 1/2 months old. can any one tell me how big (roughly) she should be.
    also she has a huge appetite. the prevous owner did tell me this but its amazing how much she can eat and still want more.
    what is the most satisfying food?
    thanks

    Well it depends what the 'x' is..
    I'd estimate about 40cm at the whither. But then again I have seen a 25cm purebred staffy(BYB..)

    Hard to say with a cross. Here's the breed standard in regards to weight.
    Sizes: Weight: Dogs 12.7-17 kg (28-38 lbs) at withers
    Bitches 11-15.4 kg (24-34 lbs) at withers
    Desirable Height: 14-16 inches

    What are you feeding her?
    Any pics?

    wow she eats a lot doesn't she? my minis looks hungry all the time and will eat non-stop if you let him.
    It will be hard to tell how big she will become because of "x" factor but i see too many overweight dogs around.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    wow she just buried a bone instead of eating it(in my sons cubby but).
    the hunger seems to have died down today.
    maybe because she was with another dog before she felt she was competing for her food. she seems content. i took her to my sisters today to have a play while i went shopping and she cried when i left and then peed on the floor.
    i hope she didnt think i was leaving for good poor thing.
    she loves my youngest (15 months) so much she went and woke him up in his cot. she got up the end put her paws through the bars and rested them on his HEAD till he woke up. she was so gentle.

    that's so cute..... lil precious!

    our 5 month old Amstaff girl would eat ALL DAY if I was to let her. she puts dysons to shame..... she's unreal, but I too believe this is because she is with another dog, and as a younger pup I think she would have been left to fend for herself as far as getting a feed in before big bro decided to how in to hers as well.

    she is getting better though as I 'supervise' feeding now to make sure they eat what they are given so I can portion control properly!

    I know a chocolate lab named "Dyson", in fact there is a whole line of labs named after vaccuum cleaners. My brother's (staffy) dog would eat an entire 15kg of dog food if you let her. And she's won "fast food eating" contests - beating out other dogs to eat 30 bits of kibble across three heats.

    Dyson is one of my potential names for my Dally.
    But only for the Dys(Dice) part. I don't know what a Dalmatians appetite is like...

    molly33, what do you mean "Sizes: Weight: Dogs 12.7-17 kg (28-38 lbs) at withers
    Bitches 11-15.4 kg (24-34 lbs) at withers"?
    Or was that just a mistake
