    At around that age, Tetsu was about 9lbs (and I remember that since that was the only time Tetsu and Tikaani weighed the same). He is 19lbs now at approx. 1.5 years old
  • My puppy is a little over 3 months and hes about 15 pounds already

    Mine is about 11 weeks old and 12 pounds. might change his name to chunky...
  • Our Tobi's weight was 13.5 lbs at 4 months. I think he's about 15-16 now at 5.5 months, but he hasn't been weighted since 4 months old.

    I don't really remember to be honest...Evie only weighs 12.4 lbs and her 1 year birthday was January 9th. My friend's shiba is 17 weeks and she weighs 11.2 lbs.

    I'd have to look at my vet records, but I think Ichi was around 12-16 lbs at 4 months. Then again, he's tall and leggy for a shiba and hovers at 26-28 lbs right now.

    I think Saya weighed 11.6 or 14 pounds I forgot it's one of that I'll have to check the vet record.

  • India is nearing 4 months and she weighed 8.8 pounds when we took her to the vet last week. I'm guessing that gender of the puppy may make a difference in size by this point.
  • Rascal was around 16 lbsif I remember correctly and was 23.7 at 6 months.

    Kita is 21 weeks and currently weighs 7kg. I think I need to get out my calculator to do some converting! I think she's big for her age.
  • Did the conversion for you, Kita is 15lbs.

    Thank you Jessica!
  • Hana weighed in at 10.25 lbs. at her 4 month visit recently. I am still feeding her 3 times per day - breaking her total for the day into 3 feedings and she generally finsishes it within 15 minutes - sometimes lunch has a few leftover kibble. Plus, in the morning, I generally give her a spoon of a high quality, natural, grain free, canned food with a little water to help make "gravy" mixed with her kibble, since she sleeps in her crate without water over night and I want to make sure she is well hydrated. Anyway, vet said at this last visit she will most likely be on the smaller side as an adult, but who knows? I wouldn't be disappointed though. I did enter her 8-week weight in a so-called breed calculator and it came back with 13-14 lbs., for her predicted weight as an adult, which is smaller than the average of 17 lbs. for females, according to the AKC, but I guess we'll just wait and see - seems like there are other dogs on the forum who went through growth spurts and others who remained on the small side. As long as she is healthy and at a good weight for her frame then I'm happy!

    At 4 months coal was about 5.3 kilograms (11.6 pounds). He is a bit of a small fry for a male, I think, seeings as several females on here are/were bigger than him at that age XD

    He is 6 1/2 and only 8.6 kilograms (18.8 pounds). I have heard both online and by a few people who are familiar with animals that he will maybe hit 10 kg (22lbs), which I believe is below standard for the males of this breed, but probably won't go much above that. Small is fine by me, as long as he is healthy ^_^-

    Goku is currently 19 weeks old (4 months 3 weeks) and weighs exactly 14lbs. Does anyone know at which age on average male shibas tend to go through their growth spurt or gain the most weight?

    @Goku - most of Ozzy's growth seemed from about 4-6 months. After 6 months, he definitely slowed down and just filled out a bit.

    At 4 months, Riley was 11.3 lbs, but the vet says she is on the petite side. AT 5 months she is now 13.4 lbs.

  • Ranto is about 4 kilos at 18 weeks - seems to be growing like a weed though.
  • Ranger is just about 4 months and weighed 12lbs at his last appointment earlier this week.
  • We just got back from the vet for Zoomie's 4 month checkup. She was 10.25 lbs.
  • double post, please delete

  • 5 months - about 13lbs. Vet said she was kinda under what she was supposed to be at. But she eats all the time.... I thought she was kinda chubby.
  • Nugget was 15.6 pounds at 4 1/2 months, now 5 months she feels like she’s probably around 17-18 but doesn’t have another vet visit until she gets spayed so I’m not positive of current. They said she’ll be 25-32 pounds full grown

  • Bonsai weighed in at 13.3 lbs at the vet a few days before he turned 4 months. The vet seemed really pleased with that, even though I thought he might be a bit under. Good idea with the weight chart @Zenki I'll have to do one of those!

    @MeghanBCG yeah, it was fun seeing a chart. But i think i'm stopping now since he has plateaued at around 27 pounds. :))

    I wish i did photos too... like a Growing Zenki Time-lapse video. Taking daily pictures with the same pose and a constant object for scale like a lego or my shiba plushy toy. hahaha. there's always a next time/dog if i ever decide i want to go through the whole potty/house/chew training all over again. =))
