I am guessing he will fill out much like a Pem which at 18 months he will be getting there and about 22-24 months should be done. It's amazing as all of a sudden one day you will look at him and he'll be all grown up:)
I actually upped Sage's food for a bit as she was looking skinny but then one day she had just matured into this beautiful young lady...it is rather strange!
Its so true what Jane said. I was just looking at old videos of Franklin from when he was around 1 1/2 and he is SO SKINNY! They were dated September and towards the end of October he had to go in for surgery and he had gained 6 pounds! Looking at October pictures he actually looks like an adult corgi so sometime in about a month he want from gangly adolescent to fit looking adult. Its amazing how quickly it happens! And looking back at pictures he didn't get his full coat (with the fluffy butt and corgi mane) until just after he turned 2. They really do take their time developing! But he may never grow into his ears! Franklin just turned 3 and still hasn't grown into his!
I call the ears their "Space Alien " stage:)
my puppy Zeus is 14 months old he is also a cardi he is so huge we call him the moose :) maybe your baby needs a little more food cardi's seem to need more food than pems my pembroke eats 1 cup of food a day and my cardi gets 2 :) seems to work for me
Is he neutered? Testosterone can help the boys look like boys. Pediatric neutering can allow growth plates to grow for a bit longer than nature intended making the dog a bit leggier/gangly. I was also told by my cardi's breeder that they do not reach their full weight until 2 years.
Yup he was neutered at around 7 months, as per vet's suggestion. I kinda wish I had waited a bit longer, since that probably will contribute to some legginess...but we'll see!
Ace is the definition of a gangly Cardigan. He's a bit less leggy now, but still looks like he's on stilts compared to a mature Cardigan. He is growing at the speed of a snail, which is of course a delight to me as the person in charge of his nutrition and well-being, but some days I long to see him fill out. Alas, he's only 9 months so it looks like I still have a long way to go before he has an adult look.
