My mistake was 2" off from the pocket size
My brother kept nothing bigger then 15"
He has a 7 month old @ 13"
His kennel buddy have a 12" @ year 1/2 old
Reason y I ask how high u the food bowl is that your boy is showing a slight sign of easty westy meaning the front paw is bending outward
Raise the food bowl will help

They call that "easty-westy"?? lol
My dog had that but he was a short 20lb terrier... I hear it's genetic.

raising the food bowl will do nothing, it's a genetic/growth issue that will most likely correct itself as the dog grows older.

He is too old to crop his ears now, you need to do it before 4 months because the cartilege will start to set in his ear.

The food bowl thing is an old wives tale.

Well, his paw is not always like that. Besides, as I said, he was just to the vet and they said that he is growing normally.

His brother has cropped ears and looks gorgeous because they didn't go too short with them. Very handsome boy, that one. He's a blue.

Fenris is a good dog. I like him just the way he is. He is cute and wonderfully smart. He is beginning to pick up on his leash manners. I am considering attempting a hiking trip one day soon when it is nice. Also might take him to the river for a swim.

Why is it better to believe in something that isn't true? I it's pretty obvious that something the dog does for a very small fraction of its day would have no bearing on it's structural development.

Your dog is not smash so he'll be ok for the hike
Most vet don't care about pit
I don't think easty westy is a disease
