Default the growing stages of a basset

Hi would anyone be able to put some pictures on showing their basset at various ages site you can see them developing from puppy to adult? 2 mths, 4 mths, 7 mths, 10 mths, 12mths, 15mths and then 2years. With approx weights. My basset is now 8 mths so just want to see how much more growing he has. He is about 45 lbs now.

There can be a huge variation depending on bloodline, end even within the same litter. For example, when my most recent litter turned 9 months old the smallest was 33 lbs and the largest was almost 70.

Maddie topped out at 50 pounds, while one of her 3 brothers weighs 95 pounds, but he is overfed.

It can be a HUGE difference. Eeyore is 7 months and 39 lbs and Hubert is just over a year and 63 lb. Our newest boy Toby weighs 35 but our Dr. thinks he should be in the high 50s based on his build. So you really just never know.

It would be a bit of a tall order to give you photos of all those ages but for sure, they all develop individually so even if I did, it might not mean very much in terms of your Basset. Look to the bloodlines, parents and especially the grand parents. If I knew where you'd got your Basset, I might be able to tell you about those lines in terms of eventual size. My current boy, who comes from a well-known bloodline back east, weighs in at almost 39 Kg. He's big. You'll find most of the current show lines over here are big - maybe too big as there is now a move to get them rather lighter than they have become recently, and less exaggerated in terms of skin - no bad thing in my opinion.

I would say that I always felt the frame in the Basset was there by around 7 months. Bodying up however, took longer, and especially with the males. Perhaps not until at least 2 years, with the girls rather earlier. We had one who between 15 and 18 months looked like two boards clapped together. I just had to put him away (in terms of showing him) until eventually he blossomed, and look more the part. Actually for me, the slower ones often remain sound - frustrating as it is not to have one who is ready for the ring at 6 months!!

If you are worried about his progress, take him back to his breeder for their assessment.

Thanks for the replies. I am happy with his progress and vet is happy with his weight. I am just interested to know how big he might end up.
