Kaipo is 6 months old and he weighs in at 18.6 lbs and 8.44 kgms. The breeder told me he was the biggest of the litter and when the vet saw the size of his paws she also mentioned he is going to be a big Shih Tzu. But I have ill feelings he is getting way too big for his breed.

3.4 to 6 grams is the range. Your dog is big.

Normally these dogs are rather small and your dog seems a bit big for his age. Normally the dogs like this should weight between 10 to 12 pounds. However, you are telling me the paws are quite large so this could be a mixed breed and this is normal in such a case.

Have you talked to your vet about this? I ask because this happened with my Clarence who is a daschshund with huge paws. We were sure he was going to be a full sized Doxie, not a tweener. Is your sweetie being over fed? Clarence had food issues when we got him and he skyrocketed to 18 pounds.

The vet had us regulate his food intake and he slimmed down to 13 pounds which was what his vet said is ideal weight. We call his paws Clydesdale's because of how big they are, but he is his perfect weight. Post back what the vet advises!

Hi there, a fully adult weight for a Shih Tzu ranges between 9 to 16 pounds. It also depends on his parents size! If you have ill doubt contact your vet!

You could discuss with your vet. If needed, perhaps a recommended diet plan for your puppy.
