So my puppy is almost 18 weeks old / 4 months and is 17lbs. I've used the online calculator estimator ect and the different methods, but most of them either seem like they have him as being smaller or larger than what seems likely like one said 20 something, another was 49lbs.

I'd guess about 35 lbs - maybe a couple/few pounds either way, but certainly between 30 and 40. With medium dogs I've always found 'double weight at 16 weeks' to get in the right neighborhood.

Okay that's what I was thinking/hoping. His weight a couple weeks ago (at 16 weeks) was 16lbs. So that would put him at 32lbs, I think he will be slightly bigger maybe 35lbs. Idk why just because he's leggy? His mom is 32lbs and his dad is 43lbs.

From what I produced myself a couple years ago - almost 2 years old now - from a 30lbs female and 40lbs male are in low 30s but the litter was all females too. With same male to 36lbs female the boys are 34-36lbs and the only girl is only 28lbs!

My breeder and some dog enthusiasts in that circle also use the 16 week weight multiplied by two (maybe add 5? pounds) for med-large dogs.
