    No, but I have an extra small Min-Pin & Boston Terrier. I like them being smaller than most of their breed.Sorry your not happy with her size, but I'd overlook that & love her for herself, not her looks.

    i love her tiny look. but sheltie's weight is about 20 30 pounds.
    she will get maybe 10 pounds if that. [​IMG]
    i have 2 little toddlers, and they love picking her up.[​IMG] all the time!
    i was hoping she would get bigger, that hasnt happened, and dont think it will. shes about the same size of our rir chickens. crazyhuh![​IMG]

    our older sheltie weighs like 50 pounds....little biggee we call him.

    She is still a puppy. What does she weigh? You can usually expect a dog to about double it's 4 month weight. If she is indeed really a micro compared to other shelties her age, I would take her to the vet and have a complete blood panel done to rule out liver and other organ issues and have her heart checked. Possibly she could be inbred or have a health problem but sometimes you just get a little one that is healthy as a horse and nothing is wrong.
