Size Question About Mini Aussie

by Errlee
(Canada)


I have a 9 month old Mini Aussie who now weighs 47 pounds! We knew he would be on the big side, since his mom was 33 and his dad was 37 pounds but we are quite surprised that he is so much bigger (and well outside the range for a mini). Just curious how common this is - I love my puppy, but we were planning on a much smaller dog, lol. My husband keeps wondering if we met "fake" parents :)

Anyone else have a non-mini Mini?

Non-mini aussie
by: Anonymous

I have a one yr old mini male who is also over the top of the mini size, he is 18.5 inches at the shoulder. He weighs 30 lbs but is still filling out. Both his parents were big, 16.5 and 17 inches, so I am not really surprised. Both your pups parents are big as well, so not unusual. Not always predictable!

Standard?

Sounds like you have a standard size Aussie. Mine is 55lbs and he is considered a standard. More to love :)
