Default What is the average weight for 5 week old large breed puppies?

I just want to know how far my pups are from the ideal weight

Our smallest pup is 2.2 pounds
and the largest is 3.2

I know they still have a lot to gain, I just would like to know how far they are from "normal"

7 to 12 lbs, depending on the sex and the litter, for my puppies at 5 weeks. Boxers or APBT are quite a bit smaller tho, not to mention the rough start these little guys have had.

The Doberman puppies I've been helping out with averaged 6.5lbs when I weighed them at 5 weeks. Some a little more, some a little less. The smallest was 5 3/4lbs and the largest was 7lbs.
