I remember looking at this chart with Zeus and thinking he was totally off! But then again he isn't the 225 lbs the chart says he should be at...LOL

I hate this thing!! Bad enough everyone feels their mastiff should weigh as much or more than someone else..

If your dog is under the weights listed it doesn't mean it is small or never going to live up to look like a mastiff. All dogs grow at different paces!

I really think people think about the "weight chart" way to much. Each dog is totally different. My first mastiff, Avery, was about right on the dot for the "weight chart" It didn't make me love her anymore. Shakespear according to the "chart" was waaay behind for a male mastiff, but he still looked good. He wasn't skinny and was really starting to fill out before he died. He was my baby and I loved him dearly. Now looking at the chart my Hershey is a little behind for a female, which is ok with me. My problem is that I think she looks skinny (which has nothing to do with actual weight) and we have been through this discussion before about her. My husband did mention yesterday that he thought she is starting to fill out more. So I am hoping that her skinnyness right now is do to some growing issues, growing spurt or growing out. For the record she only weighed 7# at 8weeks old.
Anyway, it is nice to hear from time to time what everyone's dog weighs but I sure hope that some people don't gage their dog on "how big" they are. Bigger is not always better.


My husband also added that he's glad she's not a full size mastiff. As active as she is we would be in trouble. She also thinks our laps is hers. I couldn't imagine a 200# dog trying to always snuggle in my lap. There also wouldn't be any room on the couch for everyone. Hershey already sneakly pushes us off, if she weighed close to 200 we wouldn't have a chance. LOL smiley

Gosh! I haven't looked at the weight chart in a long time, and our two are definitely small mastiffs b/c if they weighed what the chart suggested they would be too big, overweight, and at risk for health problems. Their bone structure and frame could not hold their recommended weight.

For example...

Jess, female, 5 yrs 10 mo, 140#

Blake, male, 3 years 7 mo, 164#

Its a nice tool but doesn't apply to every dog. Masher has been twice the size and twice the weight of Hank since 8 weeks old. Hank has started to fill out now and Mash...............if he fills out anymore, yikes! Mash is a year younger.

I sorta think of it as a "guideline" ....if you line a bunch of us 40 yr old women up I seriously doubt we are all going to weigh the same either. LOL smiley I have two skin kids, and they never weighed the same as each other - or the charts in the pediatricians office.... it's "just a tool" to give you a place to start and to see the progession of weight vs age for a Mastiff. It's not meant to be an exact.

I don't even know where this chart originally came from... it was just used on the old EMOC site, so we moved it here.

It was great at predicting Big Ben's weight.... he followed it pretty close (give or take 5 lbs at some ages). Gus has NEVER fit the chart or the progression of it.... He started out about 10 lbs too light, and has been about 20 lbs over every since. ha! Too many factors go into the weight of your dog.... genetics and bone structure... not to mention the rate they grow is so individual..... it really does vary per dog... it would be impossible to make a chart that fit them all. This is a just a "guideline" so don't get stuck on the numbers.

I think this chart has been around forever. It's the same one in all my mastiff books, old and new.

WOW!! I should copy this and show it to the vets out in Philadelphia. I had to take Merlin there to a specialist because of the severity of his allergies. They swear he's over weight. He's now 31 months old, and weighs 200lbs. No one else has ever said he's over weight. Just that goofy vet. Then again, I told them not to do anything other than what I came for and they did it anyway. They're still trying to get money from me for it. I won't pay for something I told them not to do. Bunch of crooks. Glad to have that chart. Thanks.

WOW from reading this chart, I am amazed at hhow much a mastiff should weigh and at what age. I clearly have a new breed of mastiff, lol. My Mastiff Stuart is 15 months and he only weighs 98lbs. When we got him he was sick, so I am thinking that has something to do with it. Thanks for sharing the chart.

I do look at this chart, but don't give it much credit. Camo's 11 months old, 163lbs, and he's 30" at the withers. He's been a bit of a slow grower, but he's progressing, but he's got a lot of filling out to do when he's a big boy. My friend Lisa's boy Titan, is 14 months and weighs in at 205lbs, and I'd say he's 32" right now. However Titan has been above the scale from about 4 months on, and he's had tons of problems with pano. I'll take the slow and steady approach any day.

Oh, and Bella will be 3 in December, and she only weighs in at 128lb, and I really don't expect her to get much bigger. We really keep her lean for health reasons.
