Chow Chow Question

chow sheltie mix question on weight


Hi I have a chow sheltie mix. She is very intelligent, protective, fun and my best friend. I was curious how much she should weigh? She is about 42 lbs now. Is that too big?

Because there is such a huge difference in weight between the Chow Chow and the Sheltie, your dog is probably fine at the weight she is at now. But, like with all dogs, you can always do the 'feel test'. In which you play your finger tips on the dog's side against the skin and if you can feel her ribs without pressing inwards, then your dog is at a good weight. But if you have to press in to feel the ribs, then she can stand to loose a couple of pounds.
