OK I own a puppy who is 12 weeks old. currently she weighs 8.5 pounds. I am really starting to doubt that i own a toy poodle. And is she an ok weight or overweight at this age. thanks to anyone who answers!
At 12wks old, and weighing in at 8lbs, my guess is you have a mini poodle. Some breeders use both toys and mini's in there breeding programs. It is also no unusual to get a throw back mini in the toy litter.
When you dog is an adult, the best thing to do is measure his hieght from ground to top of shoulder(behind neck). A toy measures up to 10inches. A mini is over 10inches up to 15inches. That will be the best way to tell what size you have.
