Lacey was 2.5 pounds at 9 weeks. She is now almost 7 months old and she weighs 5 pounds, 0 ounce. She grew alot about a month ago but hasn't grown at all since then. My breeder told me Lacey would be on the bigger side. She is a beautiful puppy.

Wow! Lilly521, that is a big puppy. Lexi was 2.5 lbs at 11/12 weeks. She will be 8 months old on the 25th (my birthday) and has been 6.6-6.7 lbs now for about 2.5 weeks. So I think she might me slowing down and possibly done growing.

Does anyone know when Maltese usually stop growing?

Bella was about 2lbs at 10 weeks. She'll be 15 weeks tomorrow and on Saturday she weighed 2-3/4 lbs. so her growth has slowed down a bit. The vet said she’ll be tiny. My other puppy Piccolina died at 12 weeks and she weighed 1 lb and 3 oz. but she might have been sick already but still she was super tiny. Her mom only weighed 3 lbs.

Pico was 1.5 lbs at 10 weeks and is 4.5 lbs now at 3 years. Sometimes I forget how little he is until I see him with other dogs or sitting by himself in the middle of our sea of deep blue carpet with his head cutely tilted to one side.

Lacey is long. She will be months old on the 22nd and she weighs 7 pounds 5 ounces. I think she is going to be a big one. Doesn't matter to me...love her no matter what.

According to the AKC, the standard for the body is "compact, the height from the withers to the ground equaling the length from the withers to the root of the tail" so you should be able to measure Maxi to find out if he really is too long for the breed.
