Well my guy is not so little anymore lol he is raw fed and we got him weighed today he is 62lbs even that seems huge to me for his age of 7 and a half months old....

He is not fat by any means but does that seem big to anyone else

I am new to the breed but at 7 months 62 pounds seems on the large side IMO. My pup is kinda skinny and I doubt she'll ever see over 60 pounds. He looks fine to me. How big were his parents?

Boss is 62lbs too and he is 14 months.
I'd say boss is on the shorter side.
Buddha is also about 60lb, taller but a lot skinner.. He needs to gain 10lb+.
Your boys going to big!

Chances are he will be bigger than avg. but no guarantees. Keep in mind the biggest of the litter doesn't always means a big adult. Same for the smallest. Lot of factors will come into play when it comes to the sizes of pups in a litter.

Yeah it might not be 100% 62 pounds because I did it in the scale by weighing myself then him with me and figured out the math did it a couple times...
Just to make sure it was right lol...
He does not seem that big but he has a ton of muscle on him he is a solid rock...

From being raw fed I would say he is under 3% body fat

Weighed Brutus on Wednesday evening and he weighed in at 57 1/2 pounds at 6 1/2 months... he has really slowed down.... was hoping he would get up to about 80 pounds. Brutus looks small to me, but he is all muscle and very strong....muscle weighs more than fat....

For a boy it doesn't sound abnormal. I met a big guy at the park about a month ago.. 60lbs at 6 months. Beautiful boy.

His name is Cooper.

Of course I think all boxers are beautiful!!
Mabyn will be a year old next month and she's the smallest (of her brothers and parents) at 50lbs but she's taller than her mom and she has some filling out to do so I'm sure she will outweigh her mom soon.

That seams big but I think my guy is heading in the same directions. He got weighed the day he turned 5 months and was 42.5 pounds. He seams huge to me. I guess boys are just bigger.

Beau is two years old and weigh 82lbs. He's a big boy. There are two other boxers in the neighborhood and they seem tall and think. Beau is stockier. I think he's getting too big because I can no longer see any of his ribs and when he sits down...he's got a big 'ol butt! LOL
