Hi, is the a chart somewhere with average growth. I'm trying to work out if we are feeding tango enough. Were cautious with her feeds and weigh her food, and limit her to only healthy treats, she's 10 month old, gets loads of exercise. She's just a bit leggy and her ribs show a bit. I think her last weigh in the vet said she was 21 ( I'm guessing that was kg ) I never asked the unit. :doh:. I'll attach a pic, thanks.

Wow, she looks great, she is right on par with where our girl is, our Britta is just 11 months and is just under 21kg, bit leggy but perfect in terms of weight I think, they take a while to fill out, if she is just gaining slowly, or looking a bit lanky I would not worry. They take a while to fill out and you want them a bit lean.....big tell is thier poop (sorry gross I know) but if you are feeding them appropriately thier poop will be good, too much and you get pudding, too little food and they will loose weight...but as I said she looks great....

Excellent, thanks. Its our 1st boxer and our old last dog had a few health problems and got spoilt and well let's just say he was a bit podgy, so I worry that ive gone to the other extreme and I'm starving her... I know what ya mean with the poop, I've become quite the poop inspector since we got her.. Is it wrong to be quite proud of her poop quality.. Haha..

Mason is 72 lbs and has been steady for 2 yrs he is 3 now. Mack was 34lbs at 4 months but I am guessing he is around 45 now and just turned 5 months...

Your boy looks pretty muscular, but I can't really tell from the pics whether he's thin or not. My girl is 9 months and weighs 23.5kg. So maybe Tango has a little leeway to gain some weight.

Your boy looks good from what I can see.
I have two boys, both built very differently.

Dante is 17 months and weighs 76 lbs, last vet visit for his yearly physical, the vet said he needed to loose weight.

Bogie is 13 months, last vet visit for spider bite, he weighed 80 lbs, vet said he looked great.

lol, so it depends on the build of the dog, Bogie is a lot heavier boned than Dante, his head is almost twice as large, so I guess he's just a bigger dog all around. He's about an inch or two taller also.

As far as height, geeze, I've tried to measure both of them, but that, I found is impossible, they wiggle and twist and try to eat the tape measure, I gave up! lol

She looks fab to me, similar colour and marking to our boy. I think her figure looks great, Nico doesn't have a defined chest as he is loose skinned. Remember uk dogs aren't as heavy as most of the USA ones.

Nico is 4 and 32kg. Fed raw. He had a few younger relatives live near us, when we were in the UK and she looks just like them. There are much bigger boxers that he played with but were fat! But one chum was massive. I compared them to Nico being a marathon runner and his mate a rugby player...lol. Just like us different builds.
