Whoa! Try re-sizing your photos. Thankfully my computer is fast enough to load them without crashing, but it looks like only about 1/4 of the image even fits on my screen.

Honestly though, photos aren't really necessary. The important points are:
- How much is your puppy supposed to weigh as an adult?
- How much of what items are you feeding?

no idea what he's supposed to way as an adult i rescued him from a shelter and not sure exactly what he's mixed with but i did alot of reasearch and 1.5 lbs keeps him at a nice lean puppy weight thats been pretty consistant in his weight gain and growth on a weekly basis. a few average days of food are:
8oz chicken leg
4oz beef heart
8oz pork shoulder meat
4oz ground beef
1oz beef liver
1oz beef kidney

Lucky pup! Looks like good stuff.

Might be a bit light on organ as 10% of 1.5 pounds would be 2.4 ounces.

Might try to work in a couple eggs a week and some fatty fish especially if the meats aren't grass fed or pastured.

Might try to mix in other proteins as you can find them.

I agree with max smile

I add whole raw egg, sardines and / or fish oil occasionally as well. Take a good look around where you are such as asian grocery stores, small grocers, and even your local market.. a lot of them have 'odd' meat. I am able to find rabbit, various turkey parts, seafood, frog, and some other oddball stuff.. too expensive to feed all the time, but nice to add in occasionally for variety.
