My two weigh 54 & 59 lbs. Dozer could gain a lot more weight, a Digger looks like he could gain a few more pounds. Vet said they both are thin, and should gain at least 10 lbs.
They get all the canned and dry that they will eat. If I feed them more, they won't eat it. If I fed them more table scraps, they would gain more weight, but I rarely feed scraps. (OK, last week they ate 6 hamburger patties and 4 hot dogs that were left from last weeks picnic, but that was a treat. If they ate like that all the time, they would be fat.)
By the way, they are very active.
