My Grady pup will be 5 months tomorrow and is about 50 lbs. He is one handsome Son Of My Bitch.
We had a female out of a 60lb bitch that went about 70lbs. We have a 9 week old out of a smaller bitch that is 11lbs. Hope he gets bigger!!
wow thats really tiny....!
Shawn, that's the best comment, Grady has so many pups on the ground that you will see all shapes and sizes.
Breeding to a 45# bitch can produce adult weight dogs from 40# -75# all from the same litter.
Grady is the constant and the bitch is the variable. What I want to know is where are all these 45# pocket rockets coming from and why are a large percentage of them finger painters in the kennel. There are enough of them around to start a new line of Miniature Labs, seems like there are 1 or 2 in alot of litters from normal to large parents
I'll answer with a picture. The yellow dog in the middle of all our adult dogs is 10 months old when this was taken. He is sired by Grady and is a big tall lanky sunuvabitch.
With so many Gady litters out there we may have to change the name of the breed to "Grady Retrievers." Get off of the bus and try something different, he's not the only quality stud out there!
I have a litter out of Traveller(Grady's son) and at 6wks the males were over 9lbs and the fm's were over 8. With the runt bringing up the rear at 5lb's.
