    Wow what a big guy he's gonna be :D

    To be honest staffies vary in size so much these days and he still has growing to do so I would go more on how he looks rather than the numbers ;)

    My old girl weighs in at 14.7kg (weighed yesterday) but looked fat when she weighed 15.5kg a few years back :rolleyes:

    My boy at 2 yrs old weighs in at 18.8kg He is also raw fed :)

    I know some people with staffies weighing over 20kg which are muscled up and trim healthy dogs hence I recommend body scoring opposed to numbers ;)

    Do we get to see pics please :D

    Body condition is more important then the actual weight. A dog when viewed from above should have a "waist". Viewed from the side he should have a nice graduation/curve upwards from the chest to where his tummy tucks. You should also be able to comfortably feel the ribs although not see them.
    If he is like this then he should be about right.

    Dog weight is only one measure, body shape and muscle:fat ratio will vary as well, as long at the overall is right and looks like a dog :)
