Our puppy stopped growing about 1 year. You could try feeding him a bit more also. Our puppy wasnt growing at all when she was at the breeders but we switched to a better food and fed her more and she started gaining weight pretty quickly.

Our puppy was 4 lbs when we got her and I got XS clothes at wal-mart that worked.

Our vet says that they’ll double whatever size they were at 4 months.  Meaning I’m gonna have a 20 pound weenie dog!  Sweet little baby though!!

What a cutie!  My dog is a baby when it comes to cold weather.  I ordered her a coat on Etsy.  Here is the seller I used: http://www.etsy.com/shop/tootlewear?ref=pr_shop_more

I got a puff jacket that is waterproof but fleece lined.  She also customized it to fit my basset.  I’d go the etsy route because I think sellers can size it for your dog πŸ™‚

All the more reason to put lots of cute little clothes on! πŸ™‚ What a cutie.

As far as weight, both of ours stopped growing at about 1 year, to maybe 1.5 years. Granted…mine are much larger. Lol.

I’d be very concerned if my puppy had not put on any weight in 6 weeks.

Honestly I would ask my vet. Small dogs can stop growing earlier than large dogs, but as it’s been over a month I’d be checking with a professional.

Does he have adequate shelter outside? And I would have food available for him all the time. Puppies eat a lot. I’ve had dogs all my life and raised puppies, so that’s what I would be doing.

What a cute little guy!  I just had to comment and tell you that my sister has a pug and his name is also Pugsley! πŸ™‚ I’d second other posters recommendation about going to etsy.  You’ll find some fantastic stuff there!

He is very very cute! I have a yorkie. He is 5 lbs. My family keeps telling me that he is too small, but I think that is the largest he is going to get. He is 26 months old. He has been the same size for almost a year now. I leave food out for him all day. He eats when he gets ready.

I get his shirts, sweaters, and jackets from T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. However for Christmas, I got his outfit from Walmart. He wears an XS.
