8 pound Maltese
by: Susan

Your little girl is on the high end of the weight for Maltese but as long as she gets plenty of exercise she is fine. There is a difference between over-weight and just big, My male Maltese is 9+ pounds at almost a year. It seems somewhere along the line Maltese are getting a bit bigger. Depends on their breeding and genetics. People that want the little tiny ones are having to pay really top dollar to get them. I prefer my baby the way he is as I don't have to worry quite so much about him getting hurt. Enjoy her and don't worry about her size unless she gets "over-weight".

Look at those spots!

My baby is 9wks now and is about .89 lbs.(yeah, not even a pound yet) she's a Maltichi.

I might just be confused, but the chart was ???? for me.

However, if I do the doubling thing, then I think she will be just under the 4lb mark.

She is pretty tiny now, so no telling.
Teakah and my Irish Wolfhound are getting to be good friends now, along with our Schnausador.

We're still guessing on how the fur will turn out, but she's a real cutie.

At 5 1/2 weeks, my Maltese puppy Molly weighs 24oz. According to the Maltese puppy weight chart she will probably be around 6lbs when fully grown. This is the perfect size for a Maltese!

After adopting Tucker and taking him to the vet for a check up he weighs 8lbs. According to what I've read, that is about all he should weigh full grown however, he is very skinny and I can feel his ribs. I thought he was underweight but now I'm not sure.

Puppy Weight Chart - Bitsy

by Bitsys Mom

Bitsy - 9 wk Morkie

Bitsy - 9 wk Morkie

My very small Morkie puppy was finally able to leave her mom and come home!I must say, she's adorable! Probably the cutest puppy I've ever had and so well behaved - such a great personality. She's 9-10 wks old and weighs 20oz (1.4 lbs). Her mother was a 4lb Maltese and dad was a 3lb Yorkie - both great quality. She was the smallest in the litter.

The breeder told me she'll stay under 4lbs. According to your puppy weight chart and others - she should be about 3.5 lbs.

Here's a picture of Bitsy... :)

Maltese Weight - Lucy

by Jessi
(New Jersey)

Lucy is 11.5 lbs... I thought (and still think) she is perfect, but when I took my Maltese to the vet he told me "she lost her bikini waist" then went on to tell me how much a pound or two impacts a dog as small as her. I felt so bad because I had no clue. I thought my Maltese's weight was fine!

Lucy's Mom NEW
by: Anonymous

My female Maltese is around 8 lbs. She is almost 11 months. I got her at 11 weeks and the Vet said it depends on her parents. She doesn't eat a lot but I don't know about her parents. To me she is perfect. She was 2.2 lbs when I got her....I was so afraid she would get under my feet.

Bikini Waist?! lol
by: Jeri

I think it's hard to know how much a dog should weigh. My sister has a german shepherd and she always asked her vet if he was overweight...to which the vet replied.....No, he's fine. That is until he starting having hip problems at age 6...then the vet said he needs to loose 30 lbs. I think that is terrible....I mean, he didn't gain those lbs. overnight and she DID always asked about the dogs weight too. Negligence on the vets part...don't you think? Is Lucy a pure bred Maltese or mixed? Just wondering, cause my Ollie is half Maltese and half Shih tzu which makes for a larger dog than a pure Maltese. Still, I sometimes wonder if he's too big too. Though I give him what the package says......1 cup per day (half in the morning and half late afternoon. I think it may depend on how much activity they get don't you? Ollie has his bursts in the house....and very active when he gets to go out...but the rest of the time he's a couch potato..lol He weighs 16 lbs.....half of which is fur I think:) Age is a factor too, I think. How old is Lucy? Ollie is 18 months old. Anyway, good luck with Lucy! I'd love to see her picture too!
