Hey there! I adopted my EM from a family member when she was already 6 years old so I didn't have her as a puppy. But our newest addition that we got from a rescue is NOT a dainty thing. She has LARGE webbed paws somewhat of a knot on her head so we were playing with the idea of her having some mastiff in her as well. Her mom was a boxer mix (with what, we don't know) and we do not know the father's breed either. She is truly a mystery puppy. :-D I am pretty sure she is part pit and/or boxer but that certainly doesn't explain her size or her paws. So, anyway, I was just curious how much your puppy weighed when it was young. Fiona (my mixed pup) is 10weeks ish and 17lbs. She was 8 weeks and 9.5lbs when we got her so she has gained nearly 8lbs in 2 weeks. Spunky, muscular confident little thing. :-D She may not be mastiff but... I wonder... besides I would LOVE another hehe Feel free to share pictures.... I know we all love to see them!
