  • Nine week old dane boy is under 4lbs

    We just got our dane puppy and he is happy and healthy as far as the vet says. He is so tiny though! I asked the breeder and they said all of this litter was pretty small but it is not a big deal. Thoughts? Has anyone else had such a little pup?

    I would doubt seriously that it is a purebred Dane at that weight either that he is only 3 weeks old.. A 3 week old is 4-7 pounds.. A purebred Dane pup of that age would be at least 15 pounds They are usually 15 -30 pounds by 8 weeks and 25 -45 by the time they are 10 -12 weeks of age.. I am guessing you got taken by a less then honest irresponsible breeder

      the pup can't possibly be a pure bred dane unless, as said above, he is only a few weeks old. looks very much like you got very badly scammed.

      unless, of course, there's a typo in your subject line. you do mean FOUR pounds, right?

        If this forum wasn't such garbage and people could actually post pictures, it would be easier to tell how old he is. But this forum IS garbage and won't fix anything. Also, thank you to Kahlua and Charlene for sticking it out here. I see you are the only people mostly responding to any thread.
