Can anyone estimate how big my puppy will get? She is 10-11 weeks old and weighs 3 1/2 lbs. She is a Dachshund/Pomeranian mix. I'm not sure if its mini Dachshund or standard and that's part of what I'm trying to figure out. Thanks for your help!

Hi Daisy and Family, You are a cutie! I am from TN also, around Bristol area.
One good indicator is the paws. The dogs usually grow into them. Or if you know the parents, take a good look.
I am sure you will love your pup no matter what size. Cute picture of a cute dog.
My vet confirmed that you can estimated a puppy's adult weight by taking their 8 weeks weight and mulitping by 3 or their 12 week weight and multiply by 2. This will give you a very close estimate of their adult weight. My puppy was 6 lbs. at 12 weeks so her adult weight should be about 12 lbs. Hope this helps.
