My Toby, in 2011 weighed roughly 50 pounds when we went to the vet. I worked with him and changed his diet between then and the next visit. In 2012 her weighed 43 lbs. Since then I have moved from my parents house into my own and he is no longer around my moms dog, he looks huskier and I think he put it all back on. But Toby is only three and his parents were larger. I am trying to keep his weight at a decent point becuase he has a crocked knee/front leg and he will get arthiritis sooner in it compared to other dogs.
Ohh, nice. Just a big-boned family I suppose. Wow, from the pictures he doesn't look 40lbs at all. He looks more like 25lbs. The one wearing the green-bandana looks like 40lbs. =P
I have seen a lot of smaller tri colored corgis, but my Jasper is huge (around 40lbs)! He was the biggest pup in his litter, which was a mix of tri and red/white. I have noticed from going to corgi meetups that there seems to be a range of sizes of corgis. Some look petite, around 20-25 lbs and there's some closer to Jasper's size. Guess it just depends on the breeding/size of the parents.
Haha, I sure hope he isn't overweight! Based on that chart he seems to be okay. He's the one in the red bandana here: http://mycorgi.com/photo/536014-10101533763492521-1416534532-n waistline is pretty tapered. He is a purebred and I know his dad is enormous. We recently met up with his sister sibling from the same litter...she's pretty giant as well lol. Maybe just a big batch?
Coloration doesn't really have anything to do with size when it comes to Corgi's. Normally, Pembrokes are genetically smaller than Cardigans. Cardigans average 30-40lbs while Pems average 20-30lbs... and no, the tail does not weigh 10lbs. =P Most Pems have docked-tails, but some still have a full-length tail. And as far as I know majority of Cardis have tails, unless the owner decides to dock their tail. Tri-color Corgi's are more predominant in the Cardigan family as opposed to Pems, but that doesn't mean they don't exist in Pems.@ Eric Kim: at 6 months old and at 40 lbs, I'd actually monitor his diet and exercise. 40lbs at several years old is not uncommon, but at 6 months that seems a bit overweight. Of course I am assuming that your Corgi is pure bred?Some info: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-C5lZ-i6alOM/UIroLqK4OyI/AAAAAAAAASM/70Cgx...
I have a tri and he is huge (for his age). At just over 6 months he is approaching 40lbs.
Mine are definitely thinner than most of the reds I've met, but they are both taller and longer than those same reds. I'm curious to see which way the two puppies fall in all this now!
Yes, Socks is quite small for her age. She's almost 2 and everyone thinks she's still a pup. Haha we like to call her teacup corgi. Even when we took her that corgi faire she was one of the smallest and there were so many pups that towered her.
My Regi is 7 months now and and he seems like he's going to be on the smaller size too. His brother Jagger who we see occasionally is on the petite side as well. Their mother is tiny though, but the dad is massive.
I don't think tris are smaller as a rule. I have two tris, from the same breeder, and distantly related. Scout is quite large, as was his dad--he is 34 lbs now at 10 yrs. old, and he is svelte! Our 1 1/2 yr old, Summer is only 23 lbs and pretty petite.
