Estimating Adult Size

Hi everyone,

I have an 11 (almost 12) week old goldendoodle puppy who is now about 15 lbs. How can I best estimate her adult weight?

Thanks.

Difficult in a mixed breed. You never know which parent is going to predominate in any one characteristic. How big are her parents?

No idea about her parents, Longblades.

I was just thinking her weight at ~3 mos might give some idea...I know goldendoodles can range from 45-70 lbs or even more, so I'm just trying to narrow it down, just out of curiosity.

Our puppy was app. 40 pounds at 3 months (57 pounds at 4.5 months now) and will be around 120-130 full grown. Father is 135 and mother is 123.
