Wonder how big your Shih Tzu will get? Use this Shih Tzu Puppy Weight Chart to estimate the adult size of your puppy. The chart is more accurate for Shih Tzu dogs, but it can be used to estimate the adult size of most toy and small breed dogs. Remember that this is just an estimate and that other factors can influence the puppy's growth. These factors can include:
In my personal experience, I have found that it is possible for the smallest puppy in the litter (the runt) to catch up to his litter mates and often pass them in size. Sometimes puppies are born smaller than others due to their location in the womb. Other times, these small puppies are just genetically small. If you are interested in reading more about small Shih Tzu puppies, I encourage you to read our article on Imperial Shih Tzu Dogs. At Tiny Miracle Shih Tzu, we do not deliberately try to produce smaller and smaller dogs, but it does happen from time to time.
