There is a bit of size variation in the breed. I raise shibas and have a female that is mature at 16 lbs. Most are closer to 20 lbs though. Males tend to be just a bit bigger. Google AKC breeds and it will tell you what the precise size should be. But if you get a good responsible breeder then they should be able to tell you what size the pup will be by a good guess.
