well thought i would update everyone on how Porsche was doing.
She an overweight doberman cross. well since having her for only 2 weeks she has already lost weight. she off to the vets this coming week to figure out how much she weighs and see about getting her in soon, sadly the vet i usually use one lady is away so cant really get her in right away but at least i can get her weight checked. But might see about the vet that's about 20mins or less from my house. But the vet did say it doesn't sound like a thyroid issue if she is losing weight from when i got her.
also her walks are getting longer each day.

Glad it does not seem to be a thyroid issue. Abbylynn is a Dobie/Rott ... and I must watch her food intake also. She seems to gain so easily. She was up to 65 pounds last vet visit ... been on a diet since then. She is not super over weight ... but a little chubby starting around the middle. We will see if her diet is working this next week when she goes back for her 3 year Rabies vacc. :) I think 55-60 she looks good at.

i know my last rotty cross was 70lbs or so. and when i thought she look great not to fat or to thin the vet comment about her being to fat.. i kind of wanted to hit the vet as she wasn't fat it was muscle mostly but i swear the vet i used like to keep them on the thinner side. so i really worry about taking porsche as i made break down and cry or hit the vet. Tomorrow porsche get to go swimming which means i get to go in the water to.

also depending on how old Abbylynn is she may be start filling out in the rotty part of her as they fill outwards after 2years.



note: having bets with people on how much porsche weighs isn't a good thing or so my mom says, but its ok to bet on how much other ppl weigh just not the dogs lol

Lol! Thanks for the warning! Abbylynn is only approximately 15 or 16 months old. :) I hope she fills out in all the " right " places! :)

I am sure she will. so she may put on some weight do to the muscle she gets. unless she got the doberman build.

doberman females can weigh about 68-88lbs and rottys 85-115lbs (got that from dog breedinfo) so she will probably weigh a bit more as she gets older. or you could be lucky and she can be on the small size of both breeds and not weigh as much
