It looks like it would fit my sister's 11lb yorkie mutt.

Really? I guess I've just never really payed attention to how different paps are shaped from the average dog.

It's not really shape. Really papillons are very average shaped with light bone. It's about weight. My sister's dog is the same size as my 5.5 lb papillon.

Jackson often fits things odd too... he's ALWAYS in between sizes, when it comes to harnesses, clothes, everything. He's always too big for the smalls, too small for the larges, but the mediums often don't fit him properly. For example, I got him Buddy Belt harness and the size 6 was way too big and the size 5 was too small, so yeah, it just didn't work for us.

I *think* we have the XS Outward Hound. I honestly can't remember what size it was. Pretty sure it was "up to 20lbs" one though. He has, like, an 18" girth, about 14-15" long, 11" neck. It fits him pretty good actually, but sometimes it seems a tad big. I'm looking for one a bit less bulky... like the Ruffwear.

Here is the XS Outward Hound on my 16lb dog.




Edit- I dunno, Jackson may have the small. Petsmart website has this:
XX-Small for dogs up to 11 lbs. with a girth of 11"-14"
X-Small for dogs up to 18 lbs. with a girth of 15"-19"
Small for dogs weighing 15-25 lbs. with a girth of 19"-24"

Here's Izzie in the Ruffwear one... She's an odd duck to fit too.

Smudge is 23 pounds and in the OH small.. but it seems if the jacket goes all the way to the tail base it works better for my guys.. But, it's not as ridiculous as how yours fits Mia. D@mn.

What size is that Ruffwear? I am wondering if it would fit Jackson better than Outward Hound or not...

See this is very close to Dekka's measurements. Only she is 15 inches around and weighs 12 pounds... I think its the thick bones of her skull and legs lol. (her neck is likely bigger, can't say I have measured that)

She and Summer probably measure similarly. Summer is just around 11 inches tall, 15 inches around her chest, 11 around her waist, and 12.5 long.

I have yet to find a harness that can fit Mia or Summer either. They're usually way too short in the body too.
