I was just curious how much everyone's full grown toy poodles weigh? I know someone who got a puppy around the same time I got Kaiser, and his puppy is already around 5 pounds,..he will be 10 weeks this saturday! So I was just wondering what to expect,..I've never had a poodle before, and everywhere I've read says that they are usually around 10 pounds fully grown.

My little girl is 3 1/2 pounds at 4 and a half months she is going to be 6 pounds so they say. My vet seemed to think she was a mini toy though. I have heard that a toy can be up to 10 pounds and 10 inches tall but I am not positive since this is my first one I am learning but have read a lot on them.

My Chloe is 2.8 kilos (approx 6 pounds) fully grown. I am worried that this is very light, but the vet said she is healthy and has good muscle tone. She is on the light end of the scale but we've been told not to worry.

Thanks for the replys!! This is my first poodle too!! Yeah everything I've read said that they can get up to 10 pounds, but a lot of people I've talked to, theirs never get that big! Which is kind of a good thing lol, they are sooo cute because they are so little!! I don't want Kaiser to grow up to fast, but I'm curious to see how big he gets. He is just at a little under 3 pounds already, so I think he might be a little bigger! Anyway, thanks again!

toy poodles can weigh anything. They can be lean or not so lean Laughing
Sophie weighs 6 pounds and Juliette weigh 4 pounds, my cow, Versace weighs 11 pounds. As long as your poodle does not get over 10 inches Tall, they are still a toy poodle. If it is over 10, then considered a mini, up to 15 over 15 inches is a standard.
I copied this from the AKC website. It doesn't say anything about weight. I even called them awhile back when Versace kept getting "fatter" He is a cow. He loves to eat... Laughing

The toy poodle is 10 inches or under at the highest point of the shoulders. Any poodle which is more than 10 inches at the highest point of the shoulders shall be disqualified from competition as a toy poodle.

As long as the toy poodle is definitely a toy poodle, and the Miniature poodle a Miniature poodle, both in balance and proportion for the Variety, diminutiveness shall be the deciding factor when all other points are equal.

My little Chloe is just over 2 lbs. She's 6 months old. My breeder thinks she'll be around 4 lbs full grown, but I don't think she's gonna make it! LOL

I have been away for a week at the beach and have just read your comments. I am very relieved to hear that Chloe is just average in weight. Thanks. (She still looks skinny to me though.)

She maybe has a high metabolic system Bennie weighs 10lbs. now and I am sure is now considered a mini because he has very long legs and am sure is over 10in. but like the more sturdyness of him the small ones are so cute but fragile. Smile
