    She is the runt of 8 puppies.
    At 8 weeks was only 3 lbs when I brought her home. Now at 15 weeks shes up to 10lbs. She seems high energy and healthy, but maybe too thin. Suggestions?
    Oh mom is only 42 lbs @ 1 yr old FB_IMG_1583949646770.jpg

    Neither picture is good enough to tell. Take a picture of the dogs side exposing the ribs not its face.

    As long as the ribs and hip bones aren't profoundly shown, pup is probably going to just be petite. Thick or fat isn't healthy anyways, lean is. As long as it is wormed out, fed regularly and drinking then the pup is probably just fine boned and not going to ever be built like a shit brickhouse. Like OG already stated, has more to do with genetics than diet.
