I am still boggling at the logistics of a very tall dog (standard poodle) and a very short dog (maltese).. o.O

And wondering why people do this.. (not aimed at the OP as he didnt' breed the dog)

wasn't there a chart on the 'net somewhere that you could estimate how much your pup will weigh as an adult, by the puppy weight??

I will search, I think I saw it here on Chaz a while ago

An over-over sized Maltese and an under-under sized Standard Poodle?

So your dog weighs nearly as much as my a little over 1 year old dog at 4 months. My youngest at 4 months only weighed 6 or so pounds and topped out at 16lbs at a year and 3 months. So you're gonna be looking into the 35lbs and up category. Could be more too, since there's standard in him he might get the build of the standard and be closer to 40-50lbs even. That's the problem with mixing a bunch of breeds together, you'll never really be able to tell how the puppy is going to develop until they've reached adulthood.

I too am wondering on the logistics of that breeding... I hope the standard wasn't the male in that breeding.

Assuming you got your dog at 8 weeks, my Border Collie at 7 weeks weighed that much. My guess would be you're going to have a big dog, lol.

Well, I'm going to say it. I think it's terrible that you declawed your cat. And I hope you went to a shelter and rescued your mixed dog and didn't pay big bucks at a pet store or BYB to have a fancy, fashionable schnoodledidoodledoo. I also agree that you will have a bigger dog, not a teacup sized one.

I am not a fan of a witch hunt and I don't think it's appropriate. He's a new member (for some reason I also have the rule that stuff from other forums should stay at other forums in my mind..) and he deserves a chance. Plain and simple, IMO. If he's a troll, he will show his true colors sooner or later.
