    We just picked up out "8 wk old" DDB at least we were he was 8 wks. Just looking around at other pictures of DDB's he seems much smaller maybe 6 wks. We took him to the vet when we got him and he weighed 6.5 lbs. Just looking on the internet people have said their DDB's have weighed 11-12 lbs at 8 weeks. Has anyone else had one that weighed 6.5lbs at 8weeks, he probably weighs about 8lbs now.

    That sounds good, he is 9wks now and weighs about 11lbs, he's looking good. I really think the guy on the video I was watching may have been off on his puppies age. He said he was 8wk but he was massive. Well I feel better now thanks.

    Yeah no prob, I find that too when I go on youtube, this one ddb was supposedly 8 months but he looked way more like 2 yrs! But your pup seems right in the norm!

    You may very well have been sold a DDB that was younger than 8 weeks. My best friend bought a Fila pup from Shoo-Its several years ago -- he was supposed to be transported by air when he was 8 weeks old. When the little guy got there, he was tiny -- and sick. Turns out he was only 4 weeks old. It's a testament to how tough a Fila pup is that he survived. Sad to think a breeder would be so unethical, let alone callous, but it happens.
