Basset Hound Puppy, normal weight progress???

hi, does anyone knows the standard weight for a 15 weeks old female basset hound.

My baby "Samantha" she is 15 weeks old, she is 17.4 pounds (she was 8.3 pounds at the age of 8 weeks) i've been doing some research and she seems to be way behind...she is in good shape but people tell me that she looks like a 10 weeks old basset.

If you read my other post you will se that i've been having a lot of trouble with her feeding...even though she doesn't look thin, i am very concern about her...

Does anyone knows if she indeed is too little? if that so, any advice on how could I help her catching up..

Thanks,
Samantha's mom

DOesn't matter, as long as she is a healthy weight/shape.

This is the chart for 'body shape' for determining if she is a healthy weight. hope it helps
