I am looking at Chessies....
Is there any correlation between the size of a puppy and how large it will grow?
If a puppy is very small compared to his litter mates will he generally be a smaller adult compared to his littermates?
I realize that sometimes the runt of a litter could end up being the largest adult but is that generally not the case?
I am asking the question because I am getting a new dog and it looks like my only choice is going to be the smallest dog in the litter. He is also the mellowest. I want a dog on the larger size of his breed. I do not want a passive dog either. I do want a dog that will be good with the family however.
I appreciate any input....thanks
