Is it possible for a 7 month old purebred coton de tulear to weigh only 4.7 lbs.

My coton de tulear is 7 months old and weighs 4.7lbs. I was told her parents are both 6 lbs. Is this possible? I was told she is a petite coton.

Big Cotons NEW
by: Gale

Janet, I wouldn't worry. Luc is also a big Coton, at over 20 pounds. He's not overweight, just BIG. He was the anti-runt of his litter and I think that's what I liked about him. As long as your dog is healthy, I wouldn't worry. There's just more of him to love :)

Small Coton NEW
by: Anonymous

Our 1 yr old is only 7 lbs. We expected her to be larger. She is healthy and precious. I have not heard of any smaller than her.

by: Laura

I was told my two cotons were √čuropean vs American cottons who are much larger, like everything American. We got them at 8 wks and 3 mos,, they are 10 yrs old and weigh 10.2 and 10.4 lbs. They are purebred, perfect and our loves. Don't worry, your baby is fine.

Petite Coton? NEW
by: Marcia

I am not an expert, but I have never heard of a petite Coton. From my research, not counting dog show standards, an adult Coton should weigh 12-18 pounds. My boy weighed 12-13 pounds when I brought him home at 8 months. He is almost 3 years now and weighs 16.5 pounds.
