i was wondering how much is normal for a 3 month old miniature schnauzer to weigh. we went to the vet and Gibson weighs 8 pounds! i was expecting him to be a little smaller since full grown is like 10 to 12 pounds right? he doesn't seem fat, i mean his tummy is round but i can see his waistline i'm pretty sure. i can also feel his ribs pretty good... but since he has long hair around his ribs, i don't know if i can see them with the naked eye. i walk him pretty much everyday, and he usually runs around my backyard a few times a day. also i feed him three times a day, moistened food that usually amounts to 1.5 cups. that is what the vet told me to do, as well as the puppy food's suggestion.

Chewy was about 8 pounds at 3 months. Chewy ended up a little taller than most mini's are supposed to be at 14.5 inches in height (Mini Schanuzers are normally between 12-14 inches tall and between 10-15 pounds in weight).
