|I agree with Quincy. I think they look older than 10 weeks. Not just because of their size and build, but their faces look more like an older puppy's would. Even looking at pictures of 10 week old Great Danes, they still look a bit older to me. I'm not saying your vet is wrong though.
If they really are 10 weeks old at 20 pounds though, I found a formula to get an "estimate" of their adult weight awhile back. I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it seemed pretty accurate when I tried it on Chewy.
You take their current weight, divide by their age in weeks, and multiply by 52. So-
20/10 = 2*52 = 104
Chewy was a little over 96 pounds at our last vet visit. He is at a VERY lean weight though, and probably isn't as muscular as he was when he was younger. He was always around 105 pounds, but not as lean as he is now, but not fat at all. He was around 12 pounds at 6 weeks. I don't remember how much he weighed at 10 weeks.
12/6 = 2*52 = 104.
Chewy is a purebred Lab, and is also quite tall for one as well. 27 inches at the shoulder, but he was shorter and very stocky as a puppy. My Aunts Lab was 13 weeks old when she got him and he looked a lot like Duncan, he was very tall and lanky, but now full grown he's shorter than Chewy and quite stocky.
To me, Duncan looks all Lab in the newer photos you posted. Dogs can have different fathers so it is possible his sister could have a different father.Can you post newer pics of her? One of my friend's has a Lab that she claims is 100% Lab, but her ears are a lot like Magnolia's.
