I got my first puppy, a Newfypoo (Newfoundland + Poodle), he is 8.5 weeks old and weights 10 lbs - is this a normal, healthy weight?

I found this weight chart but I would like to hear directly from current Newfypoo owners.

  • We have an 8m girl. She has been right in the middle of the chart you referred to each month so far. Currently 67 pounds. Hope this helps

Unfortunately due to the fact that it's a mixed breed it is difficult to assess if she is at her healthy weight without physically seeing the pet. We have a few clients who have Bernadoodles (Bernese Mountain Dog Crossed with Poodle), they were both bred with miniature poodles and have both came out to be 90-100lbs fully grown.

You should be able to:

  1. Feel the ribs without seeing them
  2. See a waist
  3. See an abdominal tuck

It is always a good idea to check with your veterinarian on the growth of your puppy, they are the best to guide you with any concerns you have. The photo below is a good guideline for healthy and unhealthy weights (click to enlarge).
