Our female chow is 51 lbs at 17 months old...

And our male chow is 12 months old...he is over 70 lbs...probably 75 ish....Im thinking he mite get to 90-100 lbs when fully grown...

I see everyone talking about weight how about Height?....Mia our female chow is 22 inches at the shoulders...and Kodi is around 25 inches at the shoulders..he is a tall Boy...

Just measured to the top of his head standing he is like 32 inches ...pretty big..lol...tall as a dining room table..

Lexi just turned 6 months and weighs 35lbs. I think she's going to be a pretty big girl which works for me! I need a big cuddly counterpart to my little skinny chihuahua haha

Ty is about 75lbs. He fluctuates and hasn't hit 80 but, closest has been 78. I used to worry he was getting fat. But then I bath him and he's skinny. So between the fur and the muscle he's a bigger boy. Haven't tried the height, as he's not a huge fan of the tap measurer.

Rio is around the 30 pound mark, he has chunky bear like paws!!! You know about it when he 'accidently' stands on your foot. (He is 16 weeks old)

My Apollo weighs 5.9 kilos at 3 mos. We checked his weight just this week. He's turning 4 mos on the 23rd :) is it a normal weight for a pup his age?

I feed him 3x a day. He's on vitamins too. The vet said his weight is fine since he has a splayed leg and cannot have much weight. His bad leg will have a hard time supporting his body. And he's a compact size chow:)

Ursa, female, weight 45 pounds. She is a little fat, and we do watch her food and weight. Malachi, male, was 78 pounds! when I weighed him last month. That is a little over the 72-75 pounds we try to maintain, so he will have to get a little less food and walk a little more. I try to take them out to petsmart about once a month and get them weighted just to keep track. Checking the ribs is also a good way to check.

Ursa- I like Ty at about 75 because I don't think he's going to get any taller or longer.One day we'll take him in and he'll be about 75, another he'll be about 78. I worry he's getting fat all the time! But some days he won't even eat a whole bowl of food (he's a free feeder because he's picky and our schedules are screwed up, so we're fortunate he's not a gorger), I can feel his ribs (once you get past the fur) and he gets lots of exercise for an apartment dog. The vet poster says ideal weight should be 70 at its highest, but I read multiple places they can top out at 85?

1 month further, my male chow Chakra is now 28.5 kilo ( 62.8 lb)
he is big :shock:
he still grows 1 kilo (2.2 lb) a month

when I walk with him, people think he is an adult dog.........

does anybody have (had) a chow that has grows so fast?
I am curious how big he will get.

my old chow had a weight of 32 kilo (70.5) when he was adult.
I thought he was big.......

Since my last posting on here Cindy, Rio has gained 7lbs. So I guess he is gaining in a similar way to your boy. I do hope he slows down soon though, he weighs 18kgs ( I'm only 60kgs and he can pull hard)

thanks for your reply.
same story here, 62 kg here for me, and he can pull really hard when spotted a cat or a rabbit ect.
he is also dominant towards other dogs already.
I've been monetoring his growth from the beginning and it seems to go in a steady line.
So I guess when he is 1 year old he will be a 30 kg chow.
I am curious how fast his growth will be from 1 to 2 years.

Its crazy, his 1 month older girlfriend looks really small when standing next to him, but she grows in a normal way, she ain't little

you see :) crazy.... (picture is from 20 - 3 - 2012)
