Toy Size



I have a 16 week "toy" sized Aussie who is already 15 lbs. I guess he probably be a mini instead. How much did your 4 month (16 week) old Aussie weigh for comparison. By the way, he is an awesome dog and I love him regardless!

Note from Anton: Australian Shepherds and Miniature Australian Shepherds are considered separate breeds. More information here.

oh, he is adorable! We have a toy also. He is 8 months now, and weighs 20 pounds, I think at 16 weeks, he weighed about 9 pounds. perhaps yours will be a mini instead, but that's fine too. either way, they are all great! we had, had a standard before, but he passed away; so then we got the toy, in hopes he would be a good companion for my daughters Chichuhua...hasn't quite worked that way yet, but hey are making progress. enjoy your boy!!
