I was wondering how much a boxer should weigh at 9 months old. Chopper weighs in at 54 pounds, and to me that is kind of on the small side. I hope he is not the runt..... How much did your guys' boxers weigh at 8-12 months or so.

Depends on the boxer. My mom is 75 pounds, daddy 93 pounds. I weigh 67 pounds at a year and a half.

My daddy was a tall lean 80 pounds, my mom a shorter stalky 75 pounds, and I am 74 pounds at almost 3. So it can be pretty varied.

Somewhere there- is something I- can eat..

Per the AKC, there is no size (weight) disqualification for Boxers. Usually, an ideal weight on a Boxer will allow you to see the last few ribs. You should be able to feel the ribs through a thin layer of fat and they should have a well-defined waist. Now, that is for an adult Boxer. Max weighed about 40 lbs at 9 months. (He looked like he was starving- even though he ate plenty and there were no medical problems, he was just scrawny!) He is now 18 months and a very healthy 65lbs. He didn't start filling out until after his first birthday. I would say to give it some time. We thought Max was going to always be scrawny, but boy did his chest fill out and he looks beautiful now. Maybe your baby is just a late bloomer like Max!

you say cookie?- now I listen.

pepper is right around 50lbs @ 10 months old. she put on a lot (almost 6lbs) of that w/in 6 weeks of being spayed.

keep in mind though that boxers don't typically reach full weight until 2 - 3 years old. frau, our last boxer, took until she was almost 3 to reach her final weight of 63lbs.

lets box
