At 3 weeks old, I'm not sure how much they weigh on average but one of the reputable show breeders on SM can give you an idea if they see this thread. 1lb seems a "little" large to me, but I could be wrong.

thanks :) so i guess she's about the right weight. the breeder told me she's "about 1 pound," so i estimated up. that's fine with me, i love her anyway ;)

One pound is definitely not too big for an average size maltese. Puppies grow very rapidly the first six weeks.
