Default How quick do Beagles grow?

I was trying to find a Beagle growth chart, but have not been able to.

How quick do they grow? When I got Marley at 9 weeks he was about 9 pounds. Then a month later 14, and now another month 17.

Also - how do you measure their height? Floor to what? I've heard withers, but what does that mean?

You do measure from the floor to the withers (shoulders). Is Marley a 13" or 15" beagle?

Jersey weighed 7 lbs. when we got her at 8-9 weeks of age. At 6 months she was about 17 lbs. and the vet said that would probably double by the time she was done growing. She now weighs 39 lbs. at age 2. She's not fat by any means but I do think she should lose about 2 lbs.

For their height, measure floor to the top of the shoulder. I've heard that you can't really get an accurate measurement until the dog is fully grown though since the same litter can contain both 13 in and 15 in varieties. I've never had a purebred (Jersey is a rescue with unknown lineage and my Amber was a Beagle/Cavalier King Charles Mix), so I don't know for sure about that. I'm sure someone who has done breeding would be able to confirm/deny that.

I think it's going to depend on the dog. Going off memory here...Gage was about 8 lbs at 2 months, 13 at three (or it could have been 4) months and 25 lbs at six months. He's still 25 lbs and will be two soon.

A beagle growth chart... great idea! :thumbup:

Tramp was just over 8 lbs at 8 weeks; 20.6 lbs at 19 weeks; and now he is 25.6 lbs at 5 1/2 months (27 wks) and about 14" tall.

We've had Mizu sincw he was 10 weeks and he was 8 lbs. He is now 8 months old and 32 lbs and still growing (sideways). He is on the chubby side.
I measured him and he is about 14 inches.

hmmmm....i think homer might be a small beagle.he was 5.5 pounds when we got him at 7 weeks but he was so sick with 3 kinds of worms.he is 4 months now and i would say no more than 11 pounds if that.got him weighed at the vet a month ago and was 9 pounds.he is not at all skinny and vet says right weight for size.but he was the runt of the litter-which i why i fell in love with him-poor guy just sat there at my feet looking up whining while his brothers climbed all over him and fought with him.how could i leave him there like that?!?!?!

Beasley was 10 pounds when we first got her (11 weeks), then she was 13 pounds last month (4 months) and 15.5 pounds last week (5 months).

The Wonder Twins weighed 4 & 5lbs when we got them at 10 weeks.

Last week when they were spayed at 9 months they weighed 24 & 25lbs.

our beagle (mix?) from the shelter was 10lbs last week, 3 weeks after we adopted him. Having said that, I really don't know how old he is. He was found 6 weeks ago, a stray, and the shelter estimated his age today to be 18 weeks, but the vet says he's definitely younger, based on teeth. LOL. Sorry that my reply isn't helpful! He's supposedly around 14-15 weeks about now, according to the vet.

ETA: Frank finally started losing baby teeth, so the vet is saying he is officially 16 weeks and 13.6lbs.
