    how big will my dog get?

    I have a lab husky mix and i had a few people arguing about how big she will get so i fiqured i would ask you guys....

    Her mom was pure lab "as far as they knew" and she was 75 pounds tall and skinny. the dad was 70 lbs shorter and stocky who was a lab husky.... and from the looks of the dad he was more lab but def had husky. My dog brandy is 9 weeks and is about 9-10 pounds.... she was also the runt of the litter and had very unique colors, she looks like rottwieler while every other dog in the litter was all black or black and white If i insert this picture right you will get what im talkin about but let me know what you guys thing

    My guess is between 50 - 60 lbs. Huskys are not very big dogs... about 45-50+lbs. Malamutes.... which looks a lot like a Husky is much larger.

    If both the parents were around 70 pounds then she will probably also get to be around 70 pounds. Runts often catch up in size to their siblings. She is cute

    My guess would be the 60-70lb range. My male husky is 55lbs and quite lean. Male huskies can get up to 60lbs, add some lab to that and I'd say he'll be a little heavier.

    She will be more than 45. 55 to 65 is not off the mark...my neighbor has a male lab at 70# and he is not at all fat. Good luck..it will be interesting to see how he grows. Please post more pics on the picture forum. I personally would like to see more!

    Lab/husky mixes are interesting mixes to be sure. They can easily get alot bigger than both of their parents. Even disregarding that, I'd say your pup will be around 60-70, just judging from it's weight at 9 weeks. Rocky was around 7 pounds at 9 weeks, and he's growing almost directly in line to be 55 pounds full grown.

    I'm going to put my guess in at 65.

    someone correct me if I am wrong, but I was told that puppies from the same litter, can have different fathers. Is it possible mamma dog got with a rottie around the same time she got with the husky? I just dont see any husky in that pup.

    Very cute puppy!

    Generally I try to guess about size by looking at the size of the dog's feet and ears.... so look around till you find a dog with about the same size feet, and then ask about that dog's weight. Nine weeks is pretty early to be able to make a prediction, though.

    Enjoy your new pup, and do share stories and pics when you can, please!

    at 8 wks all my pups were between 9.5 lb and 12.5 lbs....at 6 mo their weights are between 31.5 and 43 lbs....at 6 mo they are mostly grown, i guessin' the biggest will be roughly around 50 lbs and the littlest will be about 38 lbs......so, if your pups parents were supposed to be 70 lb Lab/Lab-Husky, and it's bl/tan while all the others were not i'd tend to think you have a different dad for yours then the rest....and something smaller....either that or there's something else in either parent and you have a throwback.....10 lbs at 9 wks is not very big (mine are Border Collies, by the way)
