I am a new Aussiedoodle owner and her name is Coco. Hey dad is a 17lb poodle and mom is a 20lb Australian Shepherd. Because she is a girl, I'm guessing she will come in that low end and be around 17lb when fully grown. We got her 2 weeks ago and she was only 3.5 lbs but in just that time, she is now 5.5lbs. Seems like quite a bit of growth. My question is this.. When will she be fully grown?
Also, I've been trying to find a size reference to see how big a 17lb dog would look. Does anyone have a picture of a dog (preferably a doodle cross) that is 17 lbs? And next to a person or something for a good size reference?
Twenty pounds is on the low end for an Aussie, so don't be too surprised if your pup winds up larger, as crossed/mixed breeds don't always reflect their parents in size if their parents are outliers for the breeds.
