Maltese Puppy Weight Chart

A puppy growth chart for estimated Maltese weight

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 (perferred 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!

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:

  • Take the weight of your puppy at 6 weeks and double it.
  • Take the total and double again.
  • This is about what the puppy will weigh as an adult.

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.
