What Is the Ideal Weight for a Mini Aussie?
(Elma, Washington, USA)
Hello All, I'm new here. I recently rescued a dog and just got the results to his DNA test. It turns out he is a purebred Mini Aussie. Which is odd... because he is 62 pounds according to our vet.
I've looked online and found that Mini Aussie's should only weigh upwards of 30 pounds. I find it hard to believe that he is 30 pounds overweight. 10 pounds? Yes. 30 pounds? Absolutely not.
Anyone have any experience with this? Having a Mini who weighed a lot more than they're supposed to? I think I'm going to put him on a prescription diet food but I just wanted to get some insight into this from other owners because it is strange to me.
