|is it possible she's just not breed standard? I mean since you don't know your breeder it's quiet possible her sire or brood bitch wasn't up to standard. She may just be a runt. Is she papered? If not she may not be all the doggy the breeder claimed. It happens sometimes.
My boy jake is a pure beagle we believe and weights around 35lbs healthy i brought him down from 40 and he was never overweight. He's just a really big beagle. My vet has assured me he was fine at 40 but too heavy for me to carry.
on the other hand Koha my grandfather's beagle papered up the butt from a nice farm in Tennessee, USA was prior to being given way too much food at the breed standard of about 25lbs. The 40 lbs he weighs now makes him look like a pig.
It just depends on the dog.
If your vet is not concerned then you probably shouldn't be either. Have you brought this exact issue up with your vet? Looking at the pictures from your profile your baby looks just fine.
