      puppy weight

      Hi there,

      I have a 4 1/2 mo. old blue great dane male. He was 40 lbs. when I got him at 11 weeks. He has steadily gained 7-8 lbs. each week since (except only 4 lbs. last week). He is now 69.3 lbs. at 18 weeks. Hope this helps?

              Newman was 12 lbs at 8 weeks and now only 32lbs at 14 weeks. But he is almost 19 inches. I hope he catches up soon

                People worry too much about weight...weight is just a number... what they need to worry about is body condition. A Dane puppy should be lean with the last 2-3 ribs visible.... they should have a well defined waist not only as a pup but as an adult. As pups they should have slow steady growth... during times of more rapid growth the hips/spine may be slightly visible..a small increase in food should help.. A Dane pup should never be over fed nor should they be chunky both can lead to serious growth issues.. Danes will grow in height on average until they are 2 years of age but that can range from 12 months to 3 years depending on bloodlines.. They don't fill out on average until 18 months to 4 years of age again depending on bloodlines. There are variables even among littermates... It isn't just parents that they can take after but others in the line as well (Grands, great Grands, etc)
