Size and weight of 6 month old puppy

Hi

I'm wondering what's the normal size and weight of a 6 month old puppy, Alfie. Alfie just turned 6 months about a week back and when I brought him to a dog show, another pup there which was 7 months is half size bigger than him.

Regardless of size, i still love Alfie loads, but just wondering if he's actually 6 months (as he's imported from Australia so his age may have been under reported) or he's a slow grower, or he's just small.

His latest pix.

Thanks
Kei

Well, My first Golden Sam weighed 68 lbs at exactly 6 months...I have Vet papers from that date. He was a huge dog though, he topped out at 100+ lbs. Ike is much smaller and toward the lower end of the standard. He weighed 52 lbs at 6 months. He's only 75 lbs now, at 19 months. I don't think it matters, really. He'll be the size he's meant to be. BTW, he's a cutie...his face looks like my Sam...

Duke is 32lbs at 5 months, putting him on the low end of the average. We also had the same experience as you when we took Duke to our local city's dog festival. We encountered other goldens similiar in age that were much bigger than he. I was curious where he stood, and I found this on this website:

7 wks. - 8-10 lbs.
9 wks. - 10-14 lbs.
12 wks. - 15-17 lbs.
16 wks. - 25-26 lbs.
20 wks. - 32-43 lbs.
6 mos. - 40-50 lbs.
12 mos. - 65-70 for males and 55-60 for females
2 yrs. - 55-68 females and 65-80 males

Duke's parents were about average in size (female- 60, male- 70). Goldens vary a lot in size, and I have heard that they can grow at different rates as well. Hope this helps!

Lily is almost 6 months (at the end of this week!) and she weighs about 39 lbs. The vet told us she would be about 60 lbs full-grown. Her mom is 60-65 lbs and her dad is 90 lbs.

Tucker was 38.3 pounds when I got him at six months, but he was absolutely infested with worms. Now, at eleven months, he's about 55 pounds.

Oh so glad to see this thread! Tucker is about 55 lbs at 6 mo. Everyone we meet says he is huge and will be gigantic- yet the breeder insists he will be around 75 lbs. So glad to see those 50lb + 6 month dogs ending up in the 70 to 80 lb range. Not that it really matters, but that was the one thing we liked about all of the dogs we met at our breeder, was that they were not gigantic, but within the appropriate weight range for a golden.
