Hello everyone. Just wanted to drop a line to introduce myself. I have recently brought home my first Dally. Poella has been living with us for 12 days now and she is everything Dalmatian! I grew up with a Dalmatian so sort of knew what I was getting myself into!

I do I a question about size weight though . . . .

our girl has always been the smallest in the litter but she is happy, healthy, alert and has a good appetite. She is all in proportion as to what a dally should look like just smaller. She weighed at the vets last week and was 3.57KG, I was wondering what your own pups weighed at 8 weeks? My vet isn't worried about her weight at all.

Hello and welcome!

I didn't get my Dal pup until he was 11 weeks old so I am not sure how much he weighed.

Welcome to the forum! It would be lovely to see some photos of Poella Laughing

I can't remember how heavy Flekk was - I have an idea it was about 5kg, but he was a podgy little thing Laughing

Hi Natalie and Poella and welcome.

I wouldnt worry too much about her weight as long as she isnt skinny.
Just give her good food and plenty of it whilst she's growing.

Some of us did document our growing puppy stats on here but I can't seem to find the post now.

Maggi will know where it is, but I think she's still on holiday.

Hi and welcome! As long as she's not bony and potbellied, but instead is active and with a nice covering of fat (puppies can lose condition very fast if they get an upset tummy for any reason so need a bit of a safety-net!) then I wouldn't worry too much. At 8 weeks old my smallest bitch weighed 8lb (3.6 kg) and she grew into a very nice healthy bitch, within the breed standard for size.

You need to upload your pictures to imageshack or photobucket.
Then copy the direct link and paste it in your post between the img tab at the top with no spaces.

That's a nice weight gain. Smile I used to reckon a 2lb a week weight gain was about right, and that's just under a kilo, so her gain is perfectly healthy. Smile
