11 Month Old Aussie Extremely Small
Chloe is my first ever Australian Shepherd, so this has been a huge learning experience. My concern is that she is so tiny. At 5 months old she only weight 10 pounds, now at 11 months old she weighs between 20 and 25 pounds.
She's also very short at maybe a foot tall. She was the runt of the litter and I was told she would be just a little smaller than my 80 pound Pit Bull.
Chloe is a very active dog, she loves herding everyone in the house including both of my Pits. Shes eats well but doesn't overeat.
She's very smart and intelligent and learns quickly—very eager to please. She is extremely bonded to me and is a very happy dog. But I'm very worried about her size. Should I be worried? The vet says she is healthy.
