|Hi. Hope everyone's doing well. New to this website.
I have a general "What is Cooper?" question and a related feeding question. Cooper is a rescue dog that I adopted last month. They classified him as a GSD/Akita mix, and I'm wondering which breed you all think he seems to be leaning toward? Not a problem either way (I love both breeds), but I'm just curious what people who know dogs think he is. Picture and info on his page.
The related question is what he's eating vs. his growth. I'm feeding him Puppy Vantage from Earthborn, and he's eating about 3 cups a day (per the bag) divided into two feedings (morning and night). He's just about 15 weeks old now, and he weighs about 18.5 pounds. This seems light for either breed, although the vet doesn't see a problem with his weight --I believe he was just over 8 pounds when I got him at around 9 weeks old.
Any thoughts on the breed? And might I be underfeeding, or is a growth spurt coming and then I'll be asking if I'm overfeeding?
