Hi everyone, i have just adopted an englih staffy and he is 8 weeks old. He was 5kg, i weighed him myself and when holding him he even feels a little more and was wondering what most 8 week puppies weigh Smile

Hello, welcome and congratulations on your adoption Big Grin

Weight will of course vary.
Nifty was just over 3kgs (5 in the litter) and Opium was just over 4kgs (2 in the litter).
Then again, Nifty overtook Opium and has weighed in more (for same age) since her 11 weeks.

Just make sure you keep an eye on Charlie’s weight and don’t let him be too chubby. There are alot of examples if you do an internet search on dog condition score.

Looking forwards to hearing more about Charlie !

Sometimes new users need to wait a few days before posting photos.
You should be able to add your avatar photo straight away though  Wink

Is Charlie 8 weeks now or 8 weeks during the vet weigh-in ?
I’m sure his weight is fine for a big growing pup.

Thanks for the compliments on mine and yes, both are full KC registered staffies out of pure staffie parents (though completely unrelated).

Hi & Welcome to the Forum from Flo and me Big Grin

They do grow crazy quick, don’t worry too much at this early stage, as long as Charlie isn’t getting really chubby all will be fine, he’s growing and burning a lot of energy and will do for the next 12 months.

As long as he looks healthy, has a defined waisted and you can feel the ribs all is good regardless of that puppy eyed starving Staffy stare Rolling Eyes
