    The puppy book the vet gave Ruby has a chart in it, "what to expect...". At 5 months it says approaching adult height and weight for small breeds (up to 20 lbs). He is so cute. Really looks healthy.

    Ginko is 6 months and we haven't gone to the vet lately to weigh himself, but I think he's around that size. Imo, I thought he was going to grow bigger since he seems small to me but I guess not.

    I was also afraid he might be a bit chubby since I see a lot of dogs here extremely fit and skinny on the waist. Glad to see someone who looks the same, haha.

  • My 6 month old boy weighs 9.4kg (20lbs) and he was by far the biggest out his litter, and we just recently met a 1 year old Shiba and he was much bigger than Koda. So it will be interesting to see how much more he does grow over the next few months..

    i'm also apart of the 20+ club =X he is 23 lbs at six months, im hoping he will stay below the 30 lbs mark but we shall see, he has only put on about 4-5 lbs in the past 2 months so i think he is pretty close to his full size

  • my two shibas are like extremely different when it comes to size; yumi (f/14mos) is 16lbs & genji (m/9mos) is 27lbs. he looks like a gratundo next to yumi. he's a bit on the chunky side, although i don't feed him any more than yumi (meals & treats, alike).
    i don't know how it happened, but he's super active, he can outrun-play-wrestle yumi any day. i hope he doesn't get any bigger though...

    Haru is 16 lb and he's 5 month old. Is he overweight, underweight, or normal?

    My pups are a year old now... Lupo is 28 lbs and Kaia is 29. They are both fairly tall For Shibas. He still looks rail thin, especially after blowing his coat. She is a wee bit heavy, but still okay. Just a lot of sashay in her hips. ;).

    Shiro was around 17 lbs when I got him at 6 mos and has grown and filled out to about 23 lbs at 9 mos. I'm expecting him to gain a little more, but hopefully he won't tip too far past 25.

    Simba weighs in at a trim 25lbs at 9 months. I have no idea where the weight comes from because he isn't tall and is pretty thin. Must be muscle, I guess.

Howdy, Stranger!
