This is a special place for pups to share their love and support for each other during difficult times; it's a place to light candles, give the "Power of the Paw," and let everyfur know they are never ever alone.

I have a question about my Dogs size. When I adopted him he was listed as a Standard Dachshund. He had Parvo when he was very and at 9 months he's still under 10 pounds.
Could it be the Parvo? Could a dogs growth be stunted?

I have never heard of parvo stunting growth; but it is wonderful that he survived that horrible disease. It is possible that it slowed his growth rate down, perhaps....but your vet should be able to give you a pretty good idea at this age of how big he will get. I have a feeling you just a cute, little guy with a lot of fight in him!!!!
