Is it normal for Australian Cattle Dogs to Double In Size...

In like 5 weeks?

WE got her as a 6 week old as seen here when she was a little milk-bellied baby...

5 Weeks later, she's doubled in size to being a little 'dog' ;P

I don't know how normal it is, but she's a beautiful puppy! My dad once knew a guy with a rottwieler that was 90 lbs at 6 months.

considering she'll be basically full grown by 9-12 months, doubling in size isn't uncommon for any dog at that age.

BEAUTIFUL pup, btw. ;f

my GSD is 72 lbs and a LOT bigger than my g/f's aussie lab mix, but lb. wise they are only 8 or 9 pounds difference. her aussie is a lot smaller, but solid as hell and thicker to boot.

pups will grow faster than you can handle and eat a LOT while they are growing. after that, its a totally different story...

just for a size comparison ;e

my pup is 72 lbs, g/f's is right around 63...but hers looks SO much smaller

Wait until it's hair grows out full length ;-), it'll triple in size.

As a side note to everyone, I wanted to recommend a good feed.

Ol' Roy, etc. AKA "Slow Death" just doesn't cut it for a healthy pup.

I believe they are a bit different than other dogs.I'm almost certain that they have a different number of teeth.A friend once had one but it was completely uncontrolable.They might make good working dogs but that one wasn't a good house pet.It wasn't mean but it always seemed half wild.They need a lot of running and exercise.

Yeah could be but I think they do have a greater number of teeth and their teeth are small for their size.That's the really strange part.Almost like another type of animal.My friend's wasn't mean but it couldn't stop pacing and running all day.
