Hudson's Malamutes - Frequently Asked Questions

29. I want the largest pup in the litter.
Is my pup the biggest of the litter?
Is my pup going to be larger than the rest of the litter?

If your human child was born premature for any reason and weighed 4 lbs at birth and his genes determined him to be 6 foot 1 when he was an adult - Does that mean then that because he was a premature baby that his genes are different and he now won't grow up to be the man he was supposed to be?

NO.... If his genes said he was going to be 6 foot 1 he will be NO MATTER WHAT - even if he weighs less than another baby when born. That is ridiculous to think he wouldn't...

So what I am trying to say is just because a pup is large or smaller as a pup means NOTHING.... Their genes determine their size as an adult nothing more nothing less.

There is nothing you can do to change the adult size to make them larger than they were born to be. The only thing you can do to affect the dog's size is starve him/her and make them malnourished for a very long period of time and that would affect the size as an adult and could make them less than they were supposed to be.

Sometimes people think if I feed him/her more or it is the largest in the litter that makes a difference. It DOES NOT... All you are doing is making your dog fat if you try to suppliment or feed too much and you can hurt them from being overweight or supplementing improperly.

Think of them in the same instance as a child !!! I have Sold 8 lb pups at 8 weeks - And I have sold 25 lb pups at 8 weeks. All were about the same size as adults. Miki on my Past Puppies was 131 at 11 months, and only 7-8 lbs at 8 weeks. Genes determined his size. NOTHING ELSE ... This is why too many breeders do not understand breeding. They look at their dog and think well because mom and dad are big the pups will be also. That is not the case and there is more to it than that. You can have very large parents have standard 65-85 lb pups. And you can have 65-85 lb parents have 140 lb dogs. The full pedigree is much more determining than just mom and dad. So basically you are picking for markings, as size cannot be guaranteed.
