My 5 month old English Mastiff
« on: July 17, 2008, 04:07:11 pm »
I can't seem to find any information for a growth scale.  Nico weights 70lbs. i was wondering if anyone has a mastiff around this age and how much does he/she weigh.

  I have an OE/Bullmstiff mix who weighs about 60 lbs now.  He weighed in at 55 lbs 2 weeks ago and he turned 5 mos on the 14th. 
Your pup sounds like a big one!  I bet he is a cutie though.
If you get a chance post some pic's so we can see him/her.

My Gage is 10 months and 115lbs, but I have him really slim as well, so to not put extra weight on his hips.

This pic you can see that he is slim:

I have an 18 month old Mastiff (who just brought me his favorite toy becasue I am not playing with him before I go to the office ;D).  Here is his weight progression 5 months through 9 months.  He now is a little over 200 but is thin (I know that sounds funny).  He could be 230 but I tr to keep him as lean as possible to mimize unnessary wear and tear.  AS long as you pup is active and happy I would not get too concerned about weight.  With a Mastiff it is a journey not a weekend trip and it can take up to 24+ months for full maturation.

Our titan is 13 months now, and he weighs 185.  (he did loose some weight, and is not eating like he should be)  I know he has more growing to do....since he is just a baby still,...and i know they grow for 3 years...i just wish he was a little taller (for my own selfish conformation reasons)

Thanks so much for the info.  I just want him to be healthy. Not too big not too small!!  I think I got a picture added, but this is not the most user friendly site, or maybe it is the user..lol

Hi, My male English Mastiff is about 5 1/2 months old. He weighs about 85 +/- lbs. He weighed 78 1/2 lbs when he 5 months old. I am trying to figure out how to post a picture of him but and having no luck. If I figure it out, I will go back in and post one.

From talking to my vet and other people who have Mastiffs, it is important you don't try to grow them too quickly or they risk developing joint problems. I am feeding my dog Eukanuba Puppy Formula for large Breeds. I fill his bowl twice a day. In addition, I slip him a milk bone here. My vet did tell me it is not unusual for these dogs to be gaining 1/2 lb a day during this stage of growth. If he is skinny and leggy looking, a bit clumbsy, and sometimes stiff when he wakes up.... I think all of this is normal growth. Mastiffs will grow for two years. They get tall and lanky first, then they start to fill out....

Hope this helps.

(this link takes to you to some pics of Texas, my mastiff.... by the way, I am also a NY Giants fan) ;)

this is a growth chart for a male and a female. now remember hight is more important than weight as a puppy. they dont fill out till there 2 years old i've found this chart is pretty accurate

Wow... According to your growth chart my 7 month old mastiff is as heavy as yours was at 9 months... Kind of scary considering I just had him at the vet for his last series of shots and the vet said that he looked perfect [meaning you could just feel the ribs and the spine]... I believe since this is one of the breeds that does not have a technical standard for weight and height in the AKC or the CKC [I'm Canadian, and correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure there is no defined standard for either measure] it's pretty tough to say what exactly is a "correct" weight for a certain age... As long as the ribs and spine aren't sticking out, but you can still feel them your dog is generally doing alright.

Good Morning and welcome..your Mastiff man is handsome.

I remember the *new* days of BPO. Hang in there, BPO actually extremely user friendly. If you make a mistake in your post-click on "modify" and edit..you can add a PS of "modified to include" so people will know it's been edited. or you can not add the PS...and keep them guessing  ;)
