|He's adorable. He could end up anywhere from 8-15 lbs. There's no way to tell, Gunther weighs around 16lbs. and weighed the same as your pup at that age.
On a side note.. Shih Tzus and Poodles are not typically dogs for children. So the children should be heavily monitored around him. Smaller breeds like that are prone to getting nippy with boistrous children, as it's just in their nature to not tolerate rough handling, screaming etc. Don't let them near him while he's eating, make sure they don't play rough or hold him awkwardly. Shih Tzus and smaller Poodles don't typically make the most loving, tolerant dogs with children. I'm not saying all of them are like that, but it's certainly common for them to not be tolerant, so it isn't his fault.
