So you just got your Maltese puppy and are wondering exactly how big he is going to get? Well, you've come to the right place because I've created a Maltese puppy weight chart to help you get accurate puppy weight estimates.
This chart represents the average size Maltese weight. If you find your Maltese puppy's weight is lower than any of these numbers, your Maltese might be too small and may have a higher risk of developing certain health problems.
If your Maltese puppy's weight is higher than any of these numbers, don't worry. Although your Maltese may not be be the perfect Maltese breed standard (preferred adult weight is 4-6 lbs) being a few pounds larger than average is fine. My Maltese dog Marley is 9 lbs and she is still super cute!
|Age in Weeks||Current Weight in Ounces|
|Birth - Day 1||3.5 oz||4 oz||4.25 oz||4.5 oz||5 oz||5.5 oz||6 oz||6.5 oz|
|Adult Weight||3.5 lbs||4 lbs||4.5 lbs||5 lbs||5.5 lbs||6 lbs||6.5 lbs||7 lbs|
If your puppy's weight falls outside of this puppy weight chart, use this simple formula to get a rough estimate of your adult Maltese's final weight:
For example, if your Maltese puppy weighs 2 pounds at six weeks, double it to get 4 pounds and then double again to get 8 pounds.
Still have questions about your puppy's weight? I've teamed up with a group of expert dog vets to help you find the answer.
