Hi everyone! Our pug, Frida, is now 7-months old but she's still pretty small (compared to some pugs I've seen out in the world). Is it possible she is going to stay on the small side, or does she still have lots of growing to do? I seem to remember the breeder telling us that pugs are full-grown between 7-8 months, but since then I've heard different things. There is another pug in Frida's walking group who is MUCH bigger and taller and, well, just huge...and he's only 6 months old!
well, generally male pugs are bigger than females...
i would think that at 7 months she is probably not full grown, but probably won't grow a great deal bigger. i would guess she still has some filling out to do.
how much does she weigh?

My pug, Lola, is 7 months old :) Follow Lola on Facebook!
They can be considered full grown at 7-8 months old and eat adult food as well. They come in many sizes. The "standard" is pretty small but they can be tall, long, and thick also. I have one foster that is 16 pounds and one that is 30 pounds.
Thanks! I actually have no idea what she weighs, but we'll find out Thursday (she's going to the Vet). Thanks for the feedback!
I just picked up a new foster this morning and she is 5 yrs old and only 13.5 pounds although she is too thin. She needs to gain 1 or 2 pounds but her body frame is the smallest one of my group.
Little Zoe is 12 lbs and she is 13 years old. Princess Zoey was about 10 lbs., but she may have had some chi in her way back...

Beatrice is 17 lbs, and is more slender and has finer bones than a lot of the squatty fat pugs I see :) So there is a variety--she probably is not "perfection" according to some guideline, but she is perfectly cute!
Bella is 10 1/2 months-- I think she looks small compared to the pictures I see of a lot of pugs. At this point, I think she is full size but will fill out.
