So i have two dalmatian puppies they will be 4 months in 3 days (wow! time really is flying) Elvis weighs 20.1 and Ozzy weighs 20.9 pounds. The mother weighs about 40 and father is over 90 pounds. my questions is what do you think their final weigh will be?

I would guess around 60-70 pounds since the mom is so much smaller than the dad, but since they are males it's possible they could grow closer to the size of the father.


Edit: I looked up how to calculate the adult weight by taking their current weight and dividing it by their age in weeks then multiply it by 52 to get the estimated adult weight.

Chewy was 12 pounds at 6 weeks old so-

12/6=2*52=104

Seems pretty accurate.

Enjoy them while they're little. smile Before you know it they'll be that big. If that is accurate they should be on the large end of the average weight I read for male dalmatians.


And Chewy is a Labrador Retriever, we weren't expecting him to get as big as he is either. laugh out loud

The boys are now 11 months and going through another growth spurt but last week Elvis was 46 lbs and Ozzy was 42 lbs. so not as big as I expected. But I love them just the same smile
