@DiamondnLovey:  The thing with mixes, is that its hard to determine what size they’ll be. They could be as small as a JRT, or as big as a beagle (the average weight for a pet beagle is around 30lbs. What has your vet said? They can give you an ideal weight estimate.

Brain fart, I thought you said JRT/beagle mix.

But it still stands the same, they’re weight could be all over the place. Do you have a recent picture of her?

@DiamondnLovey:  it really is hard when it’s a cross. We have a Jug that’s not going to get any bigger and the vet says she is perfectly healthy but she is just a little over 9 pounds! Teeny tiny, here she is 🙂

Without seeing the dog it is impossible to know what the ideal weight is.  Even from pictures it can be hard to tell what their ideal weight would be.  I would just follow the advice of your vet.

@DiamondnLovey:  I didn’t realize we were talking about a full grown dog! *slaps head* 

just make sure that your dog runs/plays enough and that the water and food are given proportionally based on what your vet recommends! Your dog looks perfectly healthy to me but I am not expert!

It’s impossible to say what an ideal weight is, especially with a mix. Just go by body condition and your vet’s advice.

@DiamondnLovey:  It is hard to tell from a picture if they are only a little bit overweight.  She looks pretty good in the picture but getting down to 22 pounds might be a good weight for her.
