She's super cute!

Did they not put a cast on her back leg after it was broken? I thought you said it was her right back leg?

I think you shud get her checked out asap. If she is refusing to eat and only wants water that is weird an sumthin is causin it. I have a 7 month old female pup that looks alot like urs. She too has always been a lil on the small side but def has a strong appetite as she will eat anything in sight! I think when she was your pups age she probly didnt weigh much more than ur dog. Some dogs are a lil on the small side especially being a female but she shud have a healthy appetite for food not water. Try letting her eat all she can in five minutes in the morning and give her raw meat snacks throughout the day as well as maybe a spoon ful of cottage cheese at mealtimes to help fatten her up. If she doesnt respond to the raw meat she def has a problem that needs checked out she shud be hungry all the time lol my pup never gets enuff ! Shortly after my pups 5th month she had a big growth spurt and now her size isnt an issue. Hope all works out with your pup.

Wow! You can already tell that she's gaining weight! Her ribs aren't as visible now. She's looking good! Also remember that kibble will make them quite thirsty after they eat as it expands in their tummies and sucks up any liquid in there. I'd let her drink as she needs to. And good thing about finding the worms and getting meds for it! I hope her leg heals up quick

Yeah she's getting really heavy. I bet she's gained 5-7 pounds this week.

I'm happy your pup is looking and feeling better(minus the leg!) She is a beautiful little girl!! The Boxer face always looks pathetic. LOL. That's why they're so adorable!!! If you switch her to a higher quality kibble you will be able to feed her less. I was feeding my boy 6 cups of Iams but only have to feed him 4 cups of Precise because there is actually some nutritional value to it. Plus then they poop less LOL

The OP did switch kibble to TOTW Pacific Stream, and the pup is already gaining lots of weight.
Glad to hear she's doing so much better already!!

Pretty good weight gain since November 12th! She's got about 10 more days until her rod comes out. She's soooo bored!

Finally got rod out yesterday and had her spayed. Doc said she did great. Brought her home same day and I slept with her on the futon last night. She's up to 37.4lbs at 7 months.
