    Can anyone suggest what the average adult weight of my JRx Westie will be?

    I'm trying to guess so I can work out a Raw feeding plan for him.

    Have you got weighing scales? If you note down your weight, then get on the scales holding your dog, you can see how much he weighs by taking your weight away from the weight that displays when you are holding him xxx

    My JRT is around 12.3Kg I think maybe a bit more, maybe a bit less. I can't remember specifically at this moment.

    Thats ok, I think males tend to weigh a bit more than the females. I remember reading that somewhere? xx

    He probably will. He's a right little fatty.

    That'll probably start trimming off now he's walking and running round the yard with the rest of the gang.

    I had the same problem with my cross puppy and trying to guess what she would be. I read somewhere on here that you can also feed 4 - 6% of the 'current' weight for puppies. I did this with Bo till she was 6 months and it worked out fine.

    She is a Westie x JR like Rupert

    If that's a pic of her on your avatar she looks like him as well! He's getting a little beard now!

    Although he's very dark coloured!
