Our nine month old female is around 35 lbs, so I think a six month old male at that weight would not be too far off. Keep an eye on his weight. The rule seems to be that you should be able to feel, but not see, his ribs. Watch out for him getting too overweight, because it is more likely that he will suffer joint and back problems as he gets older (and other stuff as well, I'm sure!!). Having said that, fully grown weights seem to vary a lot within the norm, depending on the build of the dog. So, a full grown male could weigh between 50-75lbs and probably be a healthy weight.

I'm sure others will have more info for you, I'm a pretty amateur basset owner!
