Unhappy Need some reassurance from other small boxer owners...

Hi everyone,

I read all the threads about boxers growing at different rates, but our baby doesn't seem to be growing. Zoey will be 9 months tomorrow and weighs only 33lbs. She was always a bit small...about 5lbs when we got her at 9 weeks. I weighed her last month and she was 32.5lbs so only a 0.5lb gain. Should I be worried?

Was she the runt of the litter?? My Pheona was the runt & when she had her first vet visit around 6weeks she was 2 pounds. She is now 21 months & is 48 pounds. We've had no problems with Pheona.

I adopted Aspen when she was 8 months old and 38 lbs. She remained 38 lbs (no matter how much she was fed) until she was 2.5 years old. She's now almost 3 and she's bulked up to 50 lbs of muscle and I no longer get people commenting on how skinny she is! My friends used to call her Skeletor, now they call her The Hulk.

Brandi was a puppy mill puppy weighing in at 13 lbs at 6 mos you could count her ribs and see every bone in her face she was skin over skeleton she stayed small until she was 2 we got her up to 40 lbs at 2 then she developed epilepsy and we put her on meds for the seizures and she bulked way up to a whopping 68 lbs she is a bit overweight for her very short self she is only 20" at the shoulder but still a great boxer

I wouldn't worry - Zoey's got a lot of growing left to do! Dempsey's 5, and he's around 57 pounds. He's not too thin, just very lean and wirey. Boxers really aren't supposed to be huge hulks. When I read about 80 and 90 pound boxers, I get worried about joint issues down the road.

Nikki is the same she was 38 pounds for a couple months. I weighed her yesterday and she is 39.4 pounds she will be 11 months January 5. She still needs to fill out so I'm not sure what she will end up at. I'll be happy if she's around 45/50 pounds. She's a cutie :-)

Murphy will be 5 months on the 2nd of January & she was 34 pounds today at the vets office. I know she's going to be bigger than Pheona. She still has a lot of growing to do.

As far as we know, she wasn't the runt. But the breeder did mention that it may be her mom's last litter since all of them were a bit small. Her mom was a smaller boxer as well, in the 40lb range. Her dad was average.
