    ..well, sort of. I can not post pics as attachments but I have them on another forum so I hope it's okay if I link to it. I finally got some pics of him during one of his rare calmer moments. Any guesses as to what type of hound he is? Here's the link: http://www.chins-n-quills.com/forums/showthread.php?p=608461#post608461

    Also any guesses as to his final size? When I first got him at 10 weeks, I had estimates of could reach 60 pounds from the shelter and 70 pounds from the vet. Now I am thinking he is not going to grow that big based on the size of other dogs his age. He was 9 pounds at approx. 10 weeks and 20 pounds at 15 weeks. This is only my second dog (1st was Westie) so I really do not know how fast bigger dogs grow.

    Shiva weighed 32 pounds at 8 weeks and now, at 16 months, over 140 pounds, if that gives you some frame of reference. Gunner looks to me like he's going to be a tall dog, but probably not excessively heavy - maybe 50 to 60 pounds when he's fully mature, depending on how muscled up he gets; a nice, medium sized dog.

    He's an irresistable little guy - what a face!

    Thanks guys! I guess we'll just have to see how big he gets, maybe it'll be easier to tell when he's grown. He does get taller everyday; once I let him out in the morning and he looked so much bigger than the night before! It's a good thing he's not gonna be huge-I talked my parents into letting me get a bigger dog (to them that was like 40 pounds-my mom kept talkiing about getting a yorkie. hehe.) Anyways they kept saying they were going to through him out if he got too big-but he's safe since he'll be no where as big as the neighbor's old 120 pound lab!

    Renee-what kind of dogs do you have? I know they're big but I don't remember seeing any mention of their breed.
