HOW BIG WILL MY PUPPY GET? I WANT A BIG ONE? I WANT A SMALLER ONE.... One of the most asked question is "How big will these puppies get?" First of all any breeder who tells you anything but that are giving you a good guestimate in range I'd run from. These are living beings. Wouldn't be nice if we could project our kids sizes? We could start shopping now for deals at birth for teenagers. It is just not realistic. Have you seen the 6'5'' son with the 5' mom and 5'11' dad or visa versa. Living things are not absolutes and these are not bionic creatures. So I will give you best guesstimate. In addition another misnomer is weight, a shorter sturdier poodle can weight more than a thinner taller poodle, although looking at them the may look the same. Our 60lb female in height is as big as our pals 95lb male, but he is fuller and more muscular (not that she couldn't drag you around town!) So when you ask us about size I'm going to focus on the real determination when looking at a Standard poodle as far as looks. Their height. Did you know some can take several years to stop growing?? For this reason I will not post a growth chart. But can give you some tips to watch as they grow which will be indicators of where they will plot.
